Glad they have wholesale clubs twice. Wish chase would do their wholesale and groceries in different quarters.

You can switch to this. It takes about 1-2 months. I did it early this year.

Too bad Costco only accepts Visa cards not Discover but if you have the Chase Freedom cards and if they have wholesale for at least one of their 5% categories then it will work at Costco

I just got a USAA Visa card with 2.5% unlimited cash back with strings attached to checking account. Hoping I'd be done with category concerns for 2018 but realizing it would be lazy of me to forgo the extra cash!
