Coronavirus is still hot and wild, but that didn’t stop Chase Freedom Quarter 2 from starting! In all seriousness, we hope you all are doing well. We cannot forget about our quarterly bonuses, although with most people staying home, I’m a little excited for this quarter because it includes GROCERIES!!
If you haven’t heard of the Chase Freedom Quarterly Challenges yet, be sure to give our overview article a quick review. Each quarter, you can max out up to $1,500 in spending for FIVE times the cashback. What we really enjoy about this card is you can transfer the Ultimate Rewards Points to your Chase Sapphire Prefered or Chase Sapphire Reserve card to use those points for travel!

I’m so glad grocery stores are on the list for Quarter 2 categories, as well as select streaming services! I’ll give a better breakdown of them, but I only wish I could hit up my gym membership during this quarantine! For now, enjoy some Netflix & Groceries while earning those 5% cash back categories from home!
- Grocery Stores
- Fitness Club & Gym Memberships
- Select Streaming Services
For your convenience, I have included the “Merchant List” of what actual companies qualify. Note: Instacart IS included in 5% cash back so absolutely NO excuses for NOT meeting these spends this quarter! I’m hoping we’ll be back to the gym after this month to get May & June for Gym Memberships also.
Activate your Card!
If you haven’t activated your 5% cashback categories yet for Chase Freedom Quarter 2, you can do so here. You must activate these each quarter to get the 5% cashback. Simply click the link to get to chasebonus.com and fill out your last name, last 4 of your card number and your zip code and click activate.
Click to activate your 5% cashback, then I would do anything to get those points and max out your spend! If I don’t hit the max near the end of June, I will most likely buy a gift card at a grocery store to help push me over the edge. Some things I like to buy gift cards for are either groceries or Gas. For my local TOPS grocery store friends, you can buy a TOPS gift card to use at the pump to count towards your ‘grocery’ purchases as well! We usually like to max this one out and use the gift cards throughout the rest of the year.

Does anyone have any other advice or tips for reaching the spend on these? Interested to hear your feedback!
