2018 Quarter 1 Chase Freedom 5x Categories


The Chase Freedom 5x reward categories have been revealed and they offer some very rewarding opportunities. If you’re not familiar with the Chase Freedom or how the quarterly categories work, you get 5 points per dollar for your first $1,500 spent on any of the designated categories. For Jan-March, it’s gas stations, internet, cable,  phone,  and mobile pay services such as Chase Pay, Android Pay , Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay. I’m a big fan of Chase adding mobile payments this upcoming quarter since many places where people normally shop (Walmart, Whole Foods, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc) accept it as a form of payment. Add in the phone, TV, and cable bills and it’s easier to hit the $1,500 limit to maximize the number points that can be earned in the quarter.  If you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve, these points have added value since you can transfer them 1:1 to one of the many airline or hotel partners.
