I just love Chase. Thanks to Ultimate Rewards (UR) points I will be spending my Saturday diving again today with the Tortuga Divers that is the east end gang at Red Sail Sports here on Grand Cayman.
One of the ways Lisa & I both rack up 30,000 points each (you can send UR points to those in the same household – very nice) is via our Chase Freedom cards. Not only is getting 5x points each quarter a no-brainier but also very helpful.
Gas stations for example. I am sure you have noticed gas is not cheap. Why not lock in 5% off by getting gift cards at your favorite gas station? There are also clearly other ways to maximize the perks as well throughout the year.
Either way, the current Freedom cards are VISA so if you had the MasterCard version you are eligible for the 20,000 new card bonus points after spending just $500 in the first 3 months of opening the account!
On to this week’s SWAG Saturday questions and such. As each and every week please take the time to peek at the rules HERE. Next on to my question for a chance, via Random.org, to win the $75 Amazon e-Gift card.
I need data points about Freedom cards. Have you ever had one? Was it the MasterCard one? Do you have one now and is it MasterCard or Visa? Do you plan to get one this year or next? Another one is a caution about downgrading to Freedom from Sapphire. Some readers have indicated that will result in not being eligible for the new card bonus. Has this happened to you? So you see, almost any Freedom data point answer will work but I want hard info to help out readers so please comment on the blog as much data as you can and I thank you in advance – René
EDIT: The winner will be picked Monday eve 12/16 this week!
