However, you don’t get this bonus automatically! Today is the 1st day you can register for next quarter’s bonus. So remember to activate your card by June 14, 2015.
You’ll earn 5X points on up to $1,500 in spending for a maximum of 7,500 Chase Ultimate Rewards points (~$75 in cash back).
I’ll show you how to get the most out of this bonus!
Chase Freedom Card
Link: Chase Freedom
With the Chase Freedom card you get 10,000 points ($100) when you spend $500 on purchases within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.
This is a fantastic card because you get 5X points on rotating categories each quarter on up to $1,500 in spending. If you max out the bonuses, you’ll earn 30,000 (~$300 in cash back) Chase Ultimate Rewards points per year!
Plus, there’s NO annual fee. So you never have to cancel this card, which help lengthen the average age of your accounts to help your credit score.
I like transferring the Chase Ultimate Rewards points I earn with the Chase Freedom card to my Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold, or Chase Ink Plus card. That’s because from there I can transfer points to airline and hotel partners such as United Airlines, Hyatt, and Southwest for Big Travel!
Turn 5X Points Into Up to 10X Points!
Link: Rewards Network
You can double dip by combining the 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points you’ll earn at restaurants on the Chase Freedom with the up to 5X points you can earn from dining with Rewards Network.
Just create a Rewards Network account, register your Chase Freedom card, and dine at a participating restaurant.
Chase Freedom cardholders can earn 5X points on restaurants, Overstock.com, Bed Bath and Beyond, and H&M next quarter! But remember to activate the bonus today. Or you can procrastinate…but only until June 14, 2015, or you’ll miss out on the points!
And with Rewards Network you can earn up to another 5X points!
