As the month of September comes to a close, so does the second quarter of the Chase Freedom 5% cashback promotion. This means one thing. Chase Freedom Quarter 3 is beginning!

To recap, the second quarter provided 5% on purchases at Grocery Stores and Home Improvement Stores. You could maximize this promotion on purchases up to $1,500 in total. This actually equals a bonus of 7,500 points or $75 cashback.

I like the Quarter 3 promotion. Mostly because I don’t have to go out of my way to meet the $1,500 spend. We have two vehicles in our house that accrue a decent amount of mileage each week.

For streaming services, we already get Netflix for free through T-Mobile. Hulu is also for free through Spotify so that category isn’t applicable to us.

Chase FAQ’s

You can always check out Chase’s FAQ on what is included in meeting some of these bonuses. For Gas Stations & Streaming services, it is noted below.

I’d imagine that if you were in a pinch for meeting the quarter 3 spend, you could prepay those services to help max out the $1,500.

You could also test out if purchases in a gas station would count towards the $75 for 5x spending. I recently spent $25 inside a Red Apple as a test to see if it would qualify as 5x. It looks like it worked!

Remember, your results may vary. This might not work for every location. However, I definitely suggest testing it out first before you try to max out the spending.

Happy points earning from the Basic Travel Couple!
