Chase Adds 5% Cash Back Bonuses for Holiday Season
The Chase Freedom Flex is one of the most popular cash back credit cards on the market today. The card earns up to 5% back on the first $1,500 in spending in a selection of rotating quarterly categories, with PayPal and Walmart earning 5% back through December 31, 2021.
Now, Chase is upping the cash back potential of its flagship cash back card, with an extra 5% back on the cardmember’s top spending category. During Q4 2021, eligible Chase Freedom cardmembers that activate their quarterly bonus categories will automatically earn an additional 5% total cash back (4% in addition to their unlimited 1% cash back) on up to $1,500 in the eligible rewards category in which they spend the most through the end of 2021.
Eligible rewards categories include:
- Select live entertainment
- Fitness clubs
- Gas stations
- Grocery stores (excluding Target and Walmart)
- Home improvement stores
- Select streaming services
- Travel (including transit)
Flex cardmembers also receive additional rewards through PayPal. Purchases made in the top spend category through PayPal, also a Q4 2021 5% back bonus category, earn a total of 9% cash back. And since Walmart is also a Q4 bonus category, cardmembers will automatically earn 5% cashback when shopping for gifts, groceries, and more when shopping at in-stores or online with Walmart.
