Chase Freedom® Announces Grocery Stores and Home Improvement Stores as New Quarterly Categories This Spring

From buying groceries to home redesigns, Chase Freedom is offering more chances to earn cash back

WILMINGTON, Del. March 14, 2019 -- Today, Chase Freedom announced new quarterly categories for the start of spring – grocery stores and home improvement stores. Chase Freedom’s quarterly categories allow cardmembers to earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases from April 1 through June 30. This quarter, Chase brought back home improvement stores for the first time since 2014, and grocery stores – a cardmember favorite.

“We know our cardmembers are eager to kick off spring with celebrations and new projects,” said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom. “This quarter’s categories, grocery stores and home improvement stores, allow cardmembers to always earn on their essentials to take them through the season.”

Starting April 1 through June 30, Chase Freedom cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases on the following:

  • Grocery stores: From graduation parties to Memorial Day weekend, cardmembers get rewarded with cash back when they’re shopping at grocery stores for their families this quarter.
  • Home Improvement: Whether it’s spring cleaning, organizing or remodeling, Chase Freedom cardmembers can earn cash back when they spend at home improvement stores through June.

Chase Freedom is making it easier than ever to activate quarterly categories. Beginning in early April, cardmembers will now be able to activate quarterly categories on the Chase Mobile App through their mobile device.

In addition to the quarterly category offers, the Chase Freedom card provides many benefits to customers – 1% cash back on all other purchases, and after $1,500 spend in the quarterly categories, rewards that don’t expire with no minimum value to redeem, and no annual fee.
