I talked to Chase today and asked them. You get the "rotating category" reward posted to your account about eight weeks after the quarter in which the reward was earned. They really make you wait for it.
It doesn't surprise me that they have a cap on the reward. They wouldn't leave their liability open-ended. The Chase caps seem more generous than the ones that Discover imposes, which I understand were lowered last year some time (?). The Discover card hardly seems worth it to me as in some instances you can only earn $20 in a particular bonus category such as restaurants.
MoP, I also asked about the upgrade of the 3% in top 3 spending categories to top 6 categories. They didn't know what I was talking about so it sounds like that bit the dust.
BTW, I got a native English speaker in what I assume as a U.S. call center when I called. This isn't always the case when I've called Chase.
