Chase Freedom Third Quarter 5% Cash Back Categories – Restaurants and Wholesale Clubs
Chase Freedom is a card that we keep for our daily use. If you are able to earn their full 5% cash back on $1500 in combined spending in every quarter’s categories, you earn 30,000 Ultimate Rewards on your Chase Freedom card every year in addition to the unlimited 1% cash back on all other purchases.

- Wholesale Clubs

I love traditional Chase Freedom more because I could maximize my 5% cash back each quarter and earn more Ultimate Rewards than 1.5% Chase Freedom Unlimited.
How to maximize your 5% in Third Quarter by Chase Freedom?
Restaurants and Wholesale Clubs are the two 5% categories for Chase Freedom in third quarter 2016. For restaurants, if you are not able to spend $1500 in the quarter, you can buy gift cards from your favor restaurants so you can use them afterwards. For Wholesale Clubs, most of them sell gift cards for other retailers or gas stations. You can load them up for future use. Remember Costco is considered as Wholesale Club and Costco accepts Visa card after June 20, 2016.
With all the options, I am sure you can take the full benefit of 5% cash back by your Chase Freedom. That is also the reason I like traditional Chase Freedom more than new Chase Freedom Unlimited.
