- You need to activate the 5% earning by June 14, 2019
- The Q2 promotion runs from April 1 through June 30, 2019
- Earn 5% cashback on the first $1,500 of spending (max $75 cash back), earn 1% after that
- The promotion is valid at grocery stores (excluding Walmart and Target) and home improvement stores
As long as you activate before June 14, 2019, you'll earn 5% cash back for all category purchases you've made for the whole quarter (up to $1,500), no matter when you activate. Chase confirms in their FAQ that you'll earn cash back for category purchases dating back to April 1st as long as you register before the June 14th deadline.
Activating your Bonus
For many, the second-quarter bonus categories should be easy to maximize with $1,500 in total spending. The exclusion of Walmart and Target is a bit disappointing since both sell groceries and may be the most convenient places to shop for some cardholders. However, the inclusion of home-improvement stores is a nice bonus. If you have any do-it-yourself projects planned around the house this spring, the Freedom Card is your new go-to payment method for 5% cash back.
If you're also a cardholder of the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, or the Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card, you can move the points earned on the Freedom Card to one of these accounts and unlock the ability to transfer your Ultimate Rewards to travel partners.
