Happy July 1st! Happy Canada Day! Happy T-3 to the 4th of July! Happy only month of the year not at all impacted by school (for most)! Happy Saturday! Happy Birthday Month to Toddler S! Etc….
It’s a great day, weekend, and month for many, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. Since it is the start of a new quarter, remember to shelve the Chase Freedom for grocery stores and drug stores purchases and instead be sure to put it to good use at restaurants and movie theaters from July 1 – September 30th for 5x points earning! If you haven’t already activated this quarter’s bonus you can go ahead and do that now, too.
As always, you can earn 5x points on the Freedom’s quarterly bonuses, up to a $1,500 max. In other words, give that Sapphire Reserve and its 3x earning on dining a rest when eating out, and switch to the no annual fee Freedom for 5x points earning up to the quarterly max on those purchases!
