It's that time of the quarter, when registration opens for Chase Freedom bonus categories. In the first quarter of 2015, Chase Freedom cards will earn 5 non-flexible Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent at grocery stores excluding Walmart and Target stores, at movie theaters, and at Starbucks stores, up to $1,500 spent cumulatively across all the bonus categories.
Along with gas stations and drug stores, grocery stores are among the easiest bonus categories in which to reach $1,500 in quarterly spend. Even if you don't have local grocery stores that sell PIN-enabled prepaid debit cards, if you do any domestic travel at all next quarter you're likely to visit a city that does. Just keep your eyes open and the 7,500 Ultimate Rewards points are sure to be yours.
While Chase will retroactively credit you for purchases made before registering, that's no excuse for delay: register now, before you forget.
