Emily and I love to use our Chase Freedom card for regular purchases.  That’s because we earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points which are very flexible when it comes to getting Big Travel with Big Money.  We especially like using the Freedom card when it earns us 5X points!

And now, via PointsCentric, Chase has made it very easy to check that you’ve been awarded all your points!

My Meal at Thai Spice Cafe Earned ~92 Points Toward My Next Trip

I used my Chase Freedom card to pay the bill at Thai Spice Cafe because during that quarter, the Freedom card earned 5X points at restaurants.

Chase shows the points as the 1 point you earn on every purchase + 4X more points for the category bonus, which included restaurants that quarter.  I earned even more points because I have a Chase checking account.

Now I can use those ~92 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to

  1. How are you still getting 10 bonus points per purchase? I thought that was discontinued months ago.

  2. Same question as above: How are you still getting the 10 bonus points per purchase?

  3. Mms — I have a Chase checking but I don’t see those 10% bonus points like you do…any advice?

  4. same question as everyone else… how???

  5. Love the site! Thanks so much for the great info. I’ve had the chase freedom for about 2 months now. I love it. I was wondering if it is possible to buy $1500 worth of gas cards (e.g. Gift cards to BP or Marathon) to max out the 6% for this quarter? I won’t spend $1500 on gas this summer otherwise. Thanks so much!

  6. They seriously need this for Ink and Sapphire! It is very useful information when you don’t know what category a vendor resides!

  7. I have the Chase Ink Business card and it’s the only Chase card that doesn’t show the rewards broken down by transaction – any idea on that one? My other Chase cards show the details

  8. When purchasing gift cards at the odd-numbered gas station with my Chase Freedom MasterCard, I am getting 5x points. When using my Chase Freedom Visa, I am getting 5x points plus 10 bonus points for every purchase plus 10% extra points per $1 spent.

  9. Now they need to do the same with chase Ink cards!

    • I’m sure the 10 points per purchase will eventually go away (as they roll out the new system).

      Frank – I’d wait a few months (if you just the card) to make sure it is linked. Or call and ask.

      @Nate Webster – That should be possible, but do a small test to see that it counts towards the 5%.

      @chris kidder @Stephen @jin – I expect it to be rolled out eventually!

  10. It amuses me greatly that they’ve just rolled this out for Freedom recently (at least, when I recently obtained a Freedom card it wasn’t there in Month #1 but was in Month #2, so I assume it was rolled out recently), and, last I checked, it didn’t show on my Sapphire Preferred. Yet my rewards card, also from Chase, has had this feature for YEARS. I don’t understand how it’s not an all-or-nothing from Chase.

  11. Not sure but Chase said they went to an annual on the 10% rather than a monthly as you show in this post
