What are the Discover it® - Cashback Match™ and Chase Freedom® bonus categories?
So what are the categories for April 1-June 30, 2018? Well, if you're stocking up for a Memorial Day picnic or end-of-the-school-year bash, you'll probably be pleased.
If you have either of these cards in your wallet, be sure to take advantage of your chance to earn up to $75 cash back in the respective bonus categories. You'll earn 5 percent back on the first $1,500 in combined spending at grocery stores with Discover it® - Cashback Match™ and/or 5 percent back at grocery stores; Chase Pay® purchases and PayPal purchases with Chase Freedom®. For both of these cards, remember that you'll only earn that bonus if you remember to activate each quarter – that's easy to do through your cardholder account online.
One thing to keep in mind this quarter with Chase Freedom® is that PayPal purchases aren't always fee-free. If you're sending money to someone, you'll pay a fee which would eat into your rewards. Instead, just use your card to pay for items online, mobile or via the PayPal app.
Neither card charges an annual fee and both come with an introductory 0 percent APR on purchases and balance transfers – 14 months with Discover it® - Cashback Match™ (then, 13.24% - 24.24% Variable) and 15 months with Chase Freedom® (then, 16.24% - 24.99% Variable).
