Chase Freedom’s 2018 Second Quarter Bonus Categories Released

with No Comments

The 2018 second quarter bonus categories for the Chase Freedom credit card are out and points/cash back earning for spend on those categories can now be activated.

Bonus Categories

Freedom’s second quarter bonus categories include:

  • Grocery Stores
  • Chase Pay
  • PayPal

All purchases made in these categories earn 5% cash back – or my favorite, 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent – on up to $1,500 in combined purchases.

Bonus earnings on the bonus categories will begin April 1, 2018, and run through June 30, 2018.

If you haven’t received your activation email yet, you can activate the second quarter categories here.

Wrap Up

Chase has followed up a really strong 2018 first quarter of bonus categories with an equally lucrative second quarter.

For me, grocery stores will easily allow me to earn the full 7,500 Ultimate Rewards points this quarter.

But, just in case something strange happens, I can use Chase Pay as a backup to fill in any extra spend I may need to hit that magical $1,500 mark, and even PayPal if things get really dire and June 30 is quickly approaching.

No matter the bonus category, I’ll be enjoying another chunk of Ultimate Rewards points being added to the stash come the end of June.
