Chase Freedom® Adds Wholesale Clubs, Department Stores and the Return of Chase Pay as New Quarterly 5% Cash Back Rewards Categories


From fall spending to holiday shopping, Chase Freedom has you
covered this season

Today, Chase Freedom announced new quarterly categories for the upcoming
holiday season – wholesale clubs and department stores– and also brought
back one of its most popular categories, Chase Pay. Just in time for the
holidays, cardmembers can easily get rewarded on their purchases during
the busiest time of the year with 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in
combined purchases in these categories from October 1st through December

"Our customers told us they liked having mobile wallets as a category,
so we're bringing Chase Pay back this quarter along with two other
favorites – wholesale clubs and department stores," said BJ Mahoney,
General Manager of Chase Freedom. "It's the perfect trifecta to make
holiday shopping more convenient and rewarding for our cardmembers."

As long as they activate by December 14th, Chase Freedom
cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases
in these categories for the whole quarter:

  • Wholesale Clubs: Buying in bulk can help save money in the long
    run, but with Chase Freedom, cardmembers are able to earn 5% cash back now
    when shopping at major wholesale clubs such as Costco or Sam's
  • Department Stores: Holiday spending can add up fast, and Chase
    Freedom cardmembers are able to earn 5% cash back through December
    when they do their shopping at department stores such as Macy's,
    Nordstrom's or Kohl's.
  • Chase Pay: Chase Freedom cardmembers can download Chase Pay and
    earn 5% anywhere Chase Pay is accepted, including Shell, Starbucks,
    and more. And, customers with eligible Samsung devices can link Chase
    Pay to Samsung Pay to tap, pay and earn at even more places.

In addition to the quarterly category offers, the Chase Freedom card
provides many benefits to cardmembers – 1% cash back on all other
purchases, rewards that don't expire, with no minimum value to redeem,
and no annual fee.
