I’ll remind you which categories earn 5X through the end of 2016!
Earn 5% Back in Popular Bonus Categories
1. Chase Freedom
Link: Chase Freedom
With the Chase Freedom card, you can earn 5% cash back (5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points) on up to $1,500 in combined spending through December 31, 2016, at:
- Department stores (including Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Sears)
- Wholesale clubs (BJ’s, Costco, and Sam’s Club)
Keep in mind you will NOT earn 5% back if you didn’t activate the bonus by December 14, 2016. That’s why I recommend activating it as soon as it’s available. Because it only takes a few seconds!
Remember, wholesale club purchases of gas and specialty services like travel, insurance, cell phones, and home improvement will NOT qualify for the bonus.
2. Discover It
Link: Discover It
Folks with the Discover It card can earn 5% cash back at Amazon, department stores, and Sam’s Club, on up to $1,500 in spending through December 31, 2016. And if you’re a new cardmember, all the cash back you earn will be matched after your 12th billing cycle, for a total of 10% back!
Be sure to activate your bonus before you start shopping. Because you can’t apply the bonus retroactively.
It’s not too late to earn 5% cash back if you want to shop at department stores or Sam’s Club. Or if you want to place a last round of orders at Amazon. Maybe party supplies for a New Year celebration? 🙂
