This is for both the legacy Chase Freedom and the new Freedom Flex.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

As a fresher, the old Chase Freedom and the new Freedom Flex allow you to earn 5X Ultimate Rewards points on whatever the chosen categories are for that 3 month period. The limit is $1,500 in spend for the quarter per card, for a total of 7,500 Ultimate Rewards points on the spend.

 

Chase Freedom Family 4th Quarter 5X Bonus Categories

You can now register for the 4th quarter on your Chase Freedom or Freedom Flex. Both Freedom Flex (including converted Freedom Flex cards) and Freedom cards will have access to these bonus categories which are PayPal and Walmart.

It couldn’t be easier to max out your 4th Quarter. Even if you aren’t a Walmart shopper, you can use PayPal at a ton of places online. Worst case, you could pay $1,500 in estimated taxes using Pay1040Tax. You’d pay a fee of 1.96% and get back 5%, for a $46 profit. Again, that’s just if you can’t use it another way.

 

How will you earn your 4th Quarter 5X bonus?

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
