1.This quarter Freedom Flex cardmembers can stack 5% quarterly cash back on Chase Travel hotel purchases and 5% quarterly cash back on dining with their standard 5% cash back on Chase Travel purchases and standard 3% on dining. However, because both quarterly cash back and standard cash back are earned as additional cash back on top of the base 1% cash back earned on each purchase, the most cardmembers will earn is 9% cash back on Chase Travel hotel purchases (1% on every purchase + additional 4% on Chase Travel + quarterly additional 4% on Chase Travel hotel purchases) and 7% cash back on dining (1% on every purchase + additional 2% on dining + quarterly additional 4% on dining).
2.Merchants in this category include hotels and motels, and many smaller establishments like bed & breakfasts, and inns.
