The Chase Freedom credit card from Chase is an interesting one because while it only earns 1 point per dollar as a baseline, it has bonus categories that rotate each quarter for 5x points on up to $1,500 worth of purchases.

Chase Freedom Credit Card

Chase Freedom Q3 Bonus Categories

The categories for the 3rd quarter of 2019 have just been announced as gas and streaming services.

These aren’t the strongest categories, but you can likely max out this bonus at a local gas station. Many sell gift cards you can use for future purchases.

As for streaming, I wouldn’t bother changing the card you use for streaming services for 3 months for this. Keep in mind that many streaming services will earn you 5x points on a Chase Ink Cash card year round as they wind up under the cable/internet category. YouTube TV, Spotify, and Netflix for sure will code ast 5x (as of now!) on the Chase Ink Cash.

And if you aren’t sure if you’d qualify for the Chase Ink Cash, since it’s a business credit card, read this post: Do You Need a Business to Apply for a Business Credit Card?

You won’t be able to register for the Q3 bonus categories just yet, but I’m sure they will email you in the nxt few days to do so, or you can check and register inside your Chase online account.
