Chase has activated the Chase Freedom Card 5x category bonus sign up for the 3rd quarter link. For the 3rd quarter, you can earn 5x points for each dollar spent at restaurants and movie theaters. The 5x category bonus offer from Chase Freedom every quarter is one of the main reason why I converted my Chase Slate Visa card to Chase Freedom Visa card.

Advantage of Chase Freedom Points
Each Chase Freedom Point is worth 1¢ your 7500 points received for the spending of $1,500 is worth $75 which you can use for feature purchases, or you can receive the amount as cash back from Chase.
For me, the best value of the 7500 Ultimate Rewards Points is the ability to transfer the points to Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve. The points transferred to Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve can be used for premium class travel by using the airline transfer partner available for Chase Ultimate Rewards.
