It’s that time again!

This article 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 refresher, 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.

You can now register for the July/August/September 2021 Chase Freedom Flex bonus categories, which are:

  • Grocery store purchases (not including Walmart or Target)
  • Select streaming services

We’ve seen a lot of grocery store bonuses this year, but who doesn’t have large grocery bills? Not only that, you can always tuck a gift card or two in with that shopping order 😉

While I normally use my Rose Gold Amex to get 4X on super market spend, I love my Chase Ultimate Rewards points, especially to transfer to World of Hyatt where I get tremendous value, so I’ll be shifting my spend to the Freedom Flex next quarter, at least until I max out the $1,500.

Chase Sapphire PreferredChase Sapphire Preferred Best Ever Offer! Earn 100,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points (worth up to $1,250 or more!) when you spend $4,000 in 3 months. How to apply for this offer.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

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.
