With the holiday shopping season around the corner, cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on in-store and online purchases with this quarter’s categories

WILMINGTON, Del. Sep 13, 2019 Today, Chase Freedom announced new quarterly categories that have previously been popular with cardmembers: department stores, PayPal, and Chase Pay. Chase Freedom’s quarterly categories allow cardmembers to earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases from October 1 through December 31.

“We are always looking to help our cardmembers earn more where they are spending, especially as we approach one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year,” said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom. “We’re excited to offer categories that provide added value for cardmembers – whether they’re online shoppers or enjoy visiting department stores.”

Starting October 1 through December 31, Chase Freedom cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases on the following:

  • Department Stores: Whether it’s stocking up on new winter attire or getting a head start on holiday shopping, Chase Freedom cardmembers can earn cash back on their next shopping trip at department stores including Macy’s, Nordstrom and Kohl’s.
  • PayPal: When cardmembers connect their Chase Freedom card to PayPal, they can earn cash back on purchases – making earning even easier when shopping online.
  • Chase Pay: Earn quarterly cash back in-store, online and in-merchant apps, when you use your Chase Freedom card in Chase Pay.

Chase Freedom cardmembers can also earn 1% cash back on all other purchases and after they spend 1,500 on purchases in this quarter’s categories with no annual fee or minimum to redeem and points that don’t expire.

As always, the 5% bonus categories are available for existing and new cardmembers and right now, new cardmembers can earn an additional $200 bonus cashback after spending $500 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.
