Earn 5X Points at Movie Theaters and Restaurants with Chase Freedom
The Chase Freedom credit card is on one of my favorite ways to earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points (which I can use to fly First Class for free). The Chase Freedom earns 5X Chase points on designated spending categories, which rotate every quarter, on up to $1,500 in spending per quarter.
We earned 5X at grocery stores and drugstores in Q2 2017, and Chase just announced that we’ll be earning 5X on restaurants and movie theaters in Q3 2017 (July-September). Head over here to activate this quarter’s bonus!
The Chase Freedom itself earns Chase cash back points, not Ultimate Rewards points. In order to maximize this card, you’ll want to have an additional Ultimate Rewards earning Chase card like the Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred, or a number of other eligible Chase cards. That will allow you to transfer and thereby convert your Chase Freedom points into Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
