Starts Today 10X Points Or 10 Cash Back At Amazon

zOMG! You’ll Earn 10X Points per $1 (up to 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points) by Using Your Freedom Card at Through December 31, 2015

You can earn this special bonus up to a maximum of 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points for $1,500 in spending at Amazon.

If you haven’t already activated your 4th quarter Freedom bonus, you have until December 14, 2015. 

Some folks will take the cash back.  But I’ll be combining my points with my Sapphire Preferred account so I can transfer to airline & hotel partners.  Remember, 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is enough for a free night at Hyatt, a 1-way airline ticket in the US, and more.

See more ideas and all the details in my original post.

Don’t Have the Freedom Card?

Folks with the Discover it card get 5% back at Amazon through December 31, 2015.  And new cardholders or folks who previously registered get their cash back doubled at the end of their 1st 12 billing cycles.

Have an American Express card?  Check your account for $15 discounts at Amazon.

Or you can apply for the Freedom card.  I wouldn’t get the card JUST for this deal.  But it does sweeten the offer!  And as y’all know, the sign-up bonus has been bumped up to 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points ($150).

Do you have your eyes set on anything fun with this deal?

I like my iPad but 1 of my buddies is enjoying his Kindle Fire for watching Netflix & Amazon Prime TV.  (You can get Amazon Prime with these discounts too.)  And he bought 1 for his mom to read her books and play Candy Crush.

Enjoy the discounts! :)
