Yesterday, Chase confirmed their 5% cash back categories for the first two quarters of 2017. Are we in for something new–or a return of the categories we have come to expect?
According to Doctor of Credit, we’ll see:
- Quarter 1 (January 1 – March 30): Gas stations and commuter passes
- Quarter 2 (April 1 – June 30): Grocery stores and drugstores
Remember, the Chase Freedom earns you 5% cash back (up to $1,500 per quarter) on the above purchases. For New Yorkers, that means $5.83 back everytime you buy an unlimited monthy Metrocard in January, February, and March.
Interestingly, the 5% cash back category for the Discover it in quarter one is also gas stations, commuter passes, and wholesale clubs.
