You can earn 5% cash back or 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you use your Chase Freedom card at grocery stores, select streaming services, and fitness clubs and gym memberships now through June 30, 2020. Here’s how to maximize that offer.
Get 5X Points at Grocery Stores and More!
Pay with your Freedom card to earn 5X points or 5% cash back on purchases of up to $1,500 at the grocery store, on select streaming service purchases, and the gym and fitness center.
This means you’ll get $75 or 7,500 points.
You have to activate your category bonus by June 14, 2020.
Sometimes life happens and you can’t pay your balance in full. The Chase Freedom gives 0% APR for 15 months on balance transfers.

How to Maximize This Offer
Spending $1,500 at grocery stores over three months isn’t that hard to do. Especially now. So it’s easy to maximize this offer.
Many grocery stores sell gift cards such as Visa gift cards, restaurant gift cards, and gas gift cards. You can buy $1,500 in gift cards and earn 5% cash back or 5X points.
If your grocery store doesn’t sell gift cards you could stock up on buying snacks and other items. It could be worth buying things now that you plan to use in a few months to get the extra cashback and 5X points.
Pro-tip: Here’s another easy way to max out your Chase Freedom bonus at the grocery store.
Select Streaming Services
You can maximize the 5X category bonus on your Chase Freedom card by changing your billing information on these select streaming services:
- Apple Music
- Google Play
Charges for Amazon Prime aren’t eligible for bonus points. 🙁
Pro-tip: The name on the Netflix account has to match the name on the credit card. So you can’t use your partner’s card, or a friend’s. 🙁
Fitness Clubs and Gym Memberships
It could be a little difficult to spend $1,500 on fitness clubs and gym memberships for the new few months. But you can still maximize the bonus.
Here’s the list of participating fitness centers and gym memberships that qualify for the offer:

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
