Where to Go for Chase 5% Cash Back in 2020

[Thursday, December 26th, 2019]

2019 flew by, and now only a week remains until 2020. Most issuers of cashback credit cards have already announced their bonus categories for all 4 quarters of the next year. Chase is no exception. However, the bank disclosed only the first quarter categories leaving the remaining three under a veil of secrecy with the mark “coming soon”.

To begin with, let’s refresh our memory of the main Freedom card rewards program’s features. Its main advantage is 5% cash back in set categories on up to $1,500 in combined purchases per quarter. These categories change each quarter and should be activated not earlier than half a month before the beginning of the upcoming quarter and not later than half a month before the end of this quarter. For example, the Q1 2020 category got available for activation on December 15 and will be till March 14. The activation process is pretty easy and can be carried out in your online account, by phone, in one of Chase locations, or through an ATM. All other purchases, including those above the $1,500 limit, bring a 1% cash back bonus with no caps.

Now it’s finally time to take a look at what owners of the no-annual-fee credit card, Chase Freedom, can benefit from in the next year:

January 1 – March 31 (activate from now till March 14): gas stations; internet, cable and phone services; select streaming services.

April 1 – June 30 (activate starting March 15): coming soon.

July 1 – September 30 (activate starting June 15): coming soon.

October 1 – December 31 (activate starting Sept. 15): coming soon.

Gas stations and streaming services are not new categories for the Freedom account owners. But internet, cable and phone services were not on the list this year. In 2019, the cardholders could also enjoy the increased cash back for tolls, for purchases paid with PayPal and Chase Pay, as well as for ones made in drug stores, grocery stores, home improvement stores, and department stores. It is difficult to divine whether the coming quarters will bring some new categories too. Let’s wait a bit and check all our guesses later.
