Registration is now open for quarterly bonus categories for the Chase Freedom, Discover and US Bank Cash+ cards.
Starting today you can register your Chase Freedom card and starting in January you’ll receive 5x Ultimate Rewards points on purchases made at gas stations, for internet/cable/cell phone service and on purchases made through mobile pay systems like Apple Pay, Android Pay, Chase Pay and Samsung Pay. You must activate by March 14, 2018 to earn 5x during this quarter but you don’t have to activate before you make your purchases. You can earn the 5x points for up to $1500 in purchases. After that you’ll earn the usual 1x points per dollar.
Discover has chosen to reveal their entire 2018 calendar and for the first quarter their 5% cash back categories are Gas Stations and Wholesale Clubs. To register, just log into your Discover account online or visit this link to log in. Note that to receive the 5% cash back you must register first before making your purchase. You can earn 5% back on up to $1500 in purchases.

US Bank is always the first to reveal the categories for the next quarter. As we reported last month, they have their usual array of categories for you to select 1 of the 2% categories and 2 of the 5% categories, based on your needs. For the 5% category you can earn the 5% on up to $2000 in purchases. To select your categories, visit the US Bank Cash+ website.
