Each quarter the Chase Freedom card offers 5x points in certain rotating categories. Registration is now open for the first quarter of 2017. The bonus categories are gas stations and local commuter transportation. Note that this does not include parking, tolls or Amtrak purchases. It also does not include merchants that do not specialize in selling automotive gasoline; for example, truck stops, boat marinas, oil and propane distributors, and home heating companies. I assume this would include charges like Uber, however.
It frustrates me that these categories overlap with Discover this quarter. I wish they’d switch off so that it would be easier to max out each card.
I do not recall getting an email from Chase reminding me to register so go ahead and do it now before you forget about it!
