As you may recall, Chase Freedom card offers bonus rewards in different spending categories on a quarterly basis — and yes, you have to re-enroll each quarter.
This time around, they’re offering 5% cash back on gas stations and restaurants from July – September 2012. There’s a $1, 500 spending cap for the bonus rewards, so we’re actually talking about a possible $75 in bonus rewards.
While $75 isn’t a huge sum, it’s certainly worth the minimal effort required to enroll your card in the program. Speaking of which… To enroll, visit ChaseBonus.com and follow the instructions, or call the number on the back of your card.
Don’t forget the $100 bonus…
If you don’t already have a Chase Freedom card, you can get a $100 bonus by applying for one, getting approved, and spending $500 within the first three months. Technically, you’ll get 10k points, but you can easily redeem these for a $100 check.
For what it’s worth, we’ve had this card for a long time and have never had a problem getting Chase to hold up their end of the bargain. Simply login to your account and request a check. It should show up within about a week.
