I’ll remind you where to earn your 5% cash back or 5X bonus through March 31, 2016!
Earn While You Can With These Cards!
1. Chase Freedom
Link: Chase Freedom
If you activated your bonus by March 14, 2016, you can earn 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on up to $1,500 in spending at gas stations and on commuter transportation (including taxis, subways, local commuter buses, and trains) through March 31, 2016.
I’ve kept my Chase Freedom card for years because you can easily earn lots of Chase Ultimate Rewards points or cash back for purchases you need to make anyway!
And, if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold (no longer available), or the Chase Ink Plus, you can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to airline and hotel partners like United Airlines and Hyatt for Big Travel!
2. Discover it
Link: Discover it
This quarter, folks with the Discover it card can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in spending at gas stations and on ground transportation (which includes commuter trains and buses, taxis, Uber, rental cars, and more), when you activate the bonus through March 31, 2016.
Better yet, new Discover it cardholders (or folks who previously registered) can have their cash back doubled at the end of their 1st 12 billing cycles. So you can effectively earn 10% cash back on rotating bonus categories! That’s a great deal, so be sure to activate your bonus!
3. Citi Dividend
The Citi Dividend card is no longer open to new applicants. But if you’re an existing cardholder, you can earn 5% cash back at Home Depot and home furnishing stores through March 31, 2016.
Keep in mind you can only earn a total of $300 cash back each year. So whether you make the most of 1 category or spread your spending throughout the year is your choice.
Take a look at the Citi Dividend 2016 Calendar to help plan your cash back bonus for the rest of 2016!
If you have any of these cards, they’re an easy way to be rewarded for purchases you’re likely to make anyway. So don’t leave money on the table!
And keep them handy, because in a few days there will be all-new bonus categories to enjoy!
