Chase Freedom Q4 2019 Categories: Paypal, Department Stores, Chase Pay
Chase has announced the quarterly 5% categories for the Freedom card, to be valid during the fourth quarter of 2019 (October 1 – December 31) on up to $1,500 in purchases:
- This is my personal favorite as I find myself using Paypal to pay online quite often; if I make my Freedom the default payment option in Paypal on October 1st, it should get maxed out in no time.
- Chase Pay
- This is really a terrific category given that it’s possible to use Chase Pay via Samsung Pay which can be used basically anywhere (ht r/churning). There are also, of course, various retailers who accept Chase Pay directly, like Starbucks, Best Buy, and Shell.
- Department Stores
- Chase is usually good about releasing a long list of which retailers will qualify. I expect it’ll include the likes of Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale’s, and to exclude the likes of Walmart, Target, and Best Buy.
These aren’t yet showing on the Chase site that I can see, but being reported by OMAAT, presumably from their Chase contacts. You still have a couple more weeks to maximize the Q3 2019 categories on Freedom and other cards.
