Chase freedom 5% cash back

Postby pswinontario » Thu Apr 30, 2015 6:37 am

I really do not if this is frequently asked questions.

I can see that From Jan to Mar we can get 5% cash back on grocery purchase . I am just curious to know that if I get a Walmart or Subway or any gas gift card gift card from grocery store, will I be able to get 5% cash back since I am not buying grocery but only gift card.

Does Chase has refer a friend options available?

Thank u

If you purchased the gift card at the grocery store then Yes you get 5% on the purchase.

I'm not sure if others got the same offer, but I have an offer that If I refer a friend I get $50 and they get $100
Chase Freedom $9k~~Chase Sapphire Preferred $6.5k~~Amex Blue Cash Preferred $12.4k~~Citi Double Cash $4.7k

It's a bit late for that quarter. Categories aren't necessarily the same for each quarter from year to year. For example Q1 2014 was Gas Stations, Movie Theaters & Starbucks.

Rewards are based on the merchant category code, not on line items. See also:

https://creditcards.chase.com/freedom/faq
What determines whether a merchant falls within a particular rewards category?
Merchants who accept Visa/MasterCard credit cards are assigned a merchant code, which is determined by the merchant or its processor in accordance with Visa/MasterCard procedures based on the kinds of products and services they primarily sell.
