Last year, I wrote about our decision to open up a Chase Freedom credit card account.
It remains a Smart Financial Decision for the ROMT family.
We haven’t changed our spending habits to take advantage of the 5% cash back rewards Chase Freedom offers on up to $1,500 in spending in rotating categories every quarter. But we have reaped the benefits of switching normal spending from our Fidelity Rewards card, which offers 2% cash back on everything, to our Chase Freedom card when we can earn 5% on purchases we would have made anyways.
Chase Freedom offers 1% cash back on purchases that aren’t in the specific spending categories eligible for 5% cash back, so we still use our Fidelity Rewards card for most of our spending.
Since we started using the Chase Freedom card last spring, our family has received over $350 in sign up bonuses and cash back!
Chase recently announced the 5% cash back categories for Q2 18, and they should once again work out well for the ROMT family.
