For those of you with a Chase Freedom Visa card, it’s time to sign up for their winter bonus reward promo. As you may recall from my earlier posts, Chase offers bonus rewards in different spending categories on a quarterly basis – and yes, you have to re-enroll each quarter.
From January 1st through March 1st, you can get 5% cash back (1% base + 4% bonus) on purchases from gas stations and Amazon.com. 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, simply visit ChaseBonus.com and follow the instructions, or call the number on the back of your card.
What about the $100 bonus?
If you don’t already have a Chase Freedom Visa 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 them to hold up their end of the bargain. Once requested, the checks show up within about a week.
