As we adjust to my husband’s different work situation and him getting home later than we are used to we have been picking up to-go orders a few times a week. As busy and chaotic as things have been around here recently I have found myself making a mileage mistake while doing so pretty frequently.
More often than not I noticed I have been grabbing the wrong credit card to pay for our meals and to-go orders the last few weeks. Out of habit I had been grabbing my Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card or Hyatt Visa as each give 2x at restaurants, but that wasn’t the right call to make. In the midst of busy family life I had forgotten that the Chase Freedom® is currently giving 5x at restaurants from April 1 – June 30, 2015 up to a $1,500 max.
Heck, I have written about this quarter’s 5x bonuses and it keeps slipping my mind, so I thought that perhaps some of you might need a similar reminder to not miss out on some pretty easy bonus points. The Freedom card is also offering 5x during the second quarter at Bed Bath & Beyond, H&M, and Overstock.com in case you have some purchases to make at those retailers, too. While we are on the topic of reminders, be sure that you have registered for this quarter’s 5x bonus.
Sometimes earning points is easy, but sometimes you just have to re-program your brain a little as the months roll by to make sure you aren’t missing out on different offers. Hopefully you and I can both remember to pull the right card out of our wallets when picking up food for the next few months!
