I purchased four $50 giftcards from Amazon on December 31, 2015 to take advantage of the 10% cashback offer from Chase Freedom. Imagine my surprise when logging into my account today and saw transaction dates of January 2 and 3, 2016 thereby only earning 1% cashback. I checked my Amazon account and it clearly states order placed on December 31, 2015. Also received an e-mail alert on December 31, 2015 from Chase alerting me of the charge over $100 (I have alerts set to notify me of purchases over $100).

So called Chase, explained what had happened, and was denied by the customer rep. So asked to speak to a supervisor who was able to adjust my account and give me the additional 9% cashback as a one time courtesy since I've been with Chase since 2007 and had a good history with them.

All of my other purchases went through fine with the 10% cashback. I think it is because I waited until December 31 to place my order. I can understand the post date of January 3, 2016 but they changed the transaction date to January 2, 2016. So check your account if you ordered anything from Amazon on December 31, 2015.

12/31 transaction; 1/1 post Got the 10%.

You likely bought way too close to 1159 on 12/31. GC's may also not settle until the person redeems it?

According to my Chase alert: As you requested, we are notifying you of any charges over the amount of ($USD) 100.00, as specified in your Alert settings. A charge of ($USD) 150.00 at has been authorized on 12/31/2015 9:15:24 PM EST.

But as stated above, all is well after calling Chase and getting them to honor the 10%.
