This year they announced the specific categories about a month before the quarters began. The categories change, though they did gas twice this year.

excited for next quarter but i watch more summer blockbusters..restaurants are always a + though

freedom probably won't mirror 100%. they never do, last quarter last year was travel, hotel and stuff..this year its select dept stores and amazon.
