5% Categories have been confirmed

They will be:
*Grocery stores
*Chase Pay
*Paypal

This should be a breeze to max out the $1,500 especially with Paypal. Good for those ebay GC deals.

You can activate the new quarter on March 15.

It's official:

Chase Freedom adds PayPal as new category for 5% cash back rewards Chase Freedom added a new quarterly category, PayPal, and brings back "customer favorites," including Chase Pay and grocery stores, from April through June. This new category is the latest way that Chase and PayPal continue to utilize the two companies' partnership to deliver new benefits to consumers. "We keep adding ways to make Chase Freedom even more rewarding for our cardmembers," said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom. "They can earn cash for every day expenses whether they pay with their phone, on the internet or in store with their familiar blue Chase Freedom card." From April through June, Chase Freedom customers will earn 5% cash back on up to $1500 in combined purchases in these categories: PayPal - which can be used online, on mobile or in-app across more than 18M large, mid-sized and small businesses around the world; Chase Pay using the app, online or in 3rd party apps; Grocery stores, including traditional brick-and-mortar food retailers and online delivery services.

Sucks when Chase and Discover mirror their 5% cashback categories. Seems like Chase announces their category after Discover does to steal their thunder as UR points are generally more valuable. Now my Discover card collects dust.

Hey DoctorFunk,

If you have good savings, you can always prepay grocery gift cards or gcs at other places so that way your discover card won't collect dust. I have through shared acct 5 chase freedom & 2 discovers.. yup, that's quite a lot. $1500X7. lol rofl. hahahaha and yes, I will maximize it.

as mentioned it's easy to maximize both with gift cards.

As to what is worth more, if you churn discover you can always be getting 10% cash back in the bonus categories... not as valuable as 5x UR for premium travel, but it beats the return on most lower-end travel rewards with UR.

To my knowledge neither costco nor sams take paypal or chase pay


As to the other items- get a Chase Ink Cash- 5x on phone, cable, and internet 365 days a year. (and office supply stores, including GCs they sell to other places)

I believe ChasePay can be used at Shell gas stations, so if you are someone who fills gas only at Shell (me), I guess that would be another quarter for 5% with gas.

If you haven't done so already, you can combine with Fuel Rewards for extra savings
