Today is the day that you can activate your Chase Freedom card for big earnings at grocery stores and wholesale clubs! This should be an easy one to max out so make sure you do this!
Activate Your 5X Chase Freedom For Grocery Stores & Wholesale Clubs
As we roll towards the next quarter, it is time to activate your Chase Freedom card so that you can get the bonuses for spending in the 2nd quarter. It is a very good one with spending at grocery stores and even wholesale clubs (like BJs and Sam’s Club) counting toward that 5X bonus.
The quarter for this earning runs from April 1 – June 30 and you can activate anytime from now until June 14. Obviously, it is better to go ahead and get it taken care of now rather than forget about it!
Earnings & Value
The bonus is capped at $1,500 in spend for a total bonus earn of $75 on your Chase Freedom card. However, if you have a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Ink Plus/Bold card, you can unlock that cash back and turn it into points for travel instead! This way, it becomes 7,500 valuable Ultimate Reward points.
No To Walmart and Target
Unfortunately, WalMart and Target do not count for the 5X earnings, but it should still be pretty easy to max out the bonus. Most grocery stores sell gift cards to a variety of retailers and even prepaid cards as well. If you do not spend an average of $500 per month at grocery stores or the warehouse stores like Sam’s Club and BJ’s, consider buying some gift cards to use after the quarter has ended.
This is a great way to easily pick up Ultimate Reward points, especially with Chase cracking down on many new applications. Activate your card(s) now so that you can be ready to earn big!
