I acitvated my Freedom card to take advantage of the bonus catergories this month, got an e-mail and text confirmation that I did activate the 5% bonus catergories.
Here is how my statement looks thus far, I got the card during the middle of my billing cycle so my statement for February is already closed. But below is my purchases and how my UR points I have. I have a total of 457 points at this time.
1) DR ENERGY CORP (BP Gas Station) 5% $71.00
2) 7-ELEVEN 1% $3.45
3) MCDONALD'S 1% $5.19
4) THEATRE 1% $6.50
5) GROCERY STORE 1% $5.56
6) 7-ELEVEN (Gas Station) 1% $67.00
7-ELEVEN gas stations are not listed and are not elegible on their 5% catergory list.
So my total purchases were for $158.70
+ 1% (1 pt)/ $1 earned on all purchases: 159
+ Bonus points from 5% categories: Jan-Mar: 298
How did they come up with this?
