At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

On March 15, Chase raised its seasonal bonus rewards from 3% to 5%.

In our opinion, this is all unnecessarily complicated, and therefore we continue to give Chase zero credit for any bonus reward categories in our calculations. After all, what if you don’t feel like shopping for furniture from April to June?

5% back on the following categories:

  • April-June: furniture, home improvement, gardening
  • July-September: airline tickets, hotels, car rentals
  • October-December: groceries, movies, department stores
