Chase Freedom Flex Now Available With Walmart and PayPal As 5% Rotating Categories for Q4 Holiday Season

Freedom Flex and Unlimited cards give customers the keys to unlock even more cash back for their everyday purchases

WILMINGTON, Del. Sep 15, 2020 Today, the new Freedom Flex and upgraded Freedom Unlimited credit cards are now available. Additionally, the Q4 2020 5% rotating categories for Chase Freedom and new Freedom Flex will be Walmart and PayPal.  

“We are thrilled to introduce new Chase Freedom products to consumers that provide enormous value for everyday purchases like dining and trips to the grocery and drugstore all with no annual fee,” said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom.  “In addition to this always-on cash back potential, Freedom Flex cardmembers will enjoy 5% cash back on rotating categories each quarter. The fourth quarter categories will be Walmart and PayPal, allowing customers to earn more for their holiday purchases or daily essentials the rest of the year.”

 This quarter’s categories begin October 1 and run through December 31. Along with Chase Freedom cardmembers, Freedom Flex cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases on the following:

  • PayPal: PayPal is offered at many local merchants and small businesses and when cardmembers link their Freedom or Freedom Flex card to their PayPal account they can earn cash back on their purchases this quarter.
  • Walmart: Whether it’s everyday essentials or holiday shopping, Freedom and Freedom Flex cardmembers can earn cash back on their purchases at Walmart this quarter.

On August 31, Chase Freedom announced two new additions to its product portfolio: a brand new credit card, Freedom Flex and additional cash back offerings to Freedom Unlimited – both are available now online or in branches 

New Freedom Flex and Unlimited cardmembers will receive $200 cash back after spending $500 on purchases in the first three months, plus 5% cash back on grocery store purchases (not including Target and Walmart) for the first year (on up to $12,000 spent).

Freedom Flex cardmembers can earn cash back in a variety of key categories, including: 5% on bonus quarterly categories (up to $1,500 in combined purchases), 5% cash back on travel purchased through Chase’s Ultimate Rewards, 3% cash back on dining and drugstores and 1% cash back on all other purchases. Freedom Flex cardmembers will also receive World Elite Mastercard Benefits including cell phone protection and discounts with Lyft, Boxed, Shoprunner, and more, in addition to Priceless Experiences.

Chase Unlimited cardmembers can also earn cash back in several new categories including: 5% cash back travel purchased on Chase Ultimate Rewards, 3% cash back on dining and drugstores, and earn 1.5% cash back on every other purchase. Both cards have no annual fee or minimum to redeem and carry points that don’t expire as long as the account is open.
