Chase Freedom Ups Bonus Category Rewards from 3% to 5%

Credit Cards
With so many websites offering free financial tools, it can be hard to know whom to trust. At NerdWallet, we spend literally 1,000s of hours researching partner offers and following strict editorial integrity to match you with the perfect choice. We even share how we make money so you can enjoy our expert advice and researched recommendations with total clarity and confidence.

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
