Earn up to 9% cash back at hotels, restaurants, and Amazon in the Chase Freedom Q2 categories.

The second quarter of the year’s rotating categories for Chase have been revealed. They’re doing something we’ve never seen before and bringing back two of our favorite categories.


Cardholders of the Freedom and Freedom Flex cards can now activate to earn additional rewards on dining, Amazon purchases, hotels booked through Chase TravelTM, and dining between April 1 and June 30.


Generally, Freedom (no longer open to new applications) and Chase Freedom FlexTM cardholders can receive 5 points per dollar, or 5% cash-back, on the bonus categories for that quarter.


However, in the bonus categories this quarter, Freedom Flex cardholders can earn up to 9% (or 9 points per dollar).


This is the entire process.
