The bonus categories activation for the Chase FREEDOM card is now live. Looks like if you spend at Lowe’s, restaurants, and movie theaters, you will get 5% cash back on your purchases. There is a $1,500 limit though. I personally have never met that threshold, but not to say there are people who won’t. If you have a home project you are working on, now is the time to make those purchases for materials and get cash back. You earn 1% on all other purchases with this card anyways. The last bonus category I thought was nice, as you earned 5% on gas, drugstore purchases, and Starbucks®. If you do not have this card, you should add it to your portfolio of cards because the current sign up bonus is 10,000 Ultimate Rewards® points, which is $100 cash back, or 10,000 miles, if you throw it into your United Mileage PLUS, British Airways AVIOS, Southwest Airline Rapid Rewrds, or Korean Air SKYPASS account. The card has NO ANNUAL fee, and comes with great benefits courtesy of VISA. There is also a MasterCard verion of the card as well. A sign up link is available for you if you want in my Favorite Credit cards page.
