You can now activate your Q2 bonus on the Chase Freedom card: https://creditcards.chase.com/freedom/activate Of course Q2 doesn't start until April 1st, so there's no great hurry. But I thought it might be worth a thread discussing how to maximize this quarter. You earn 5X up to $1,500 in spend in restaurants (standalone, fast-food included) and Lowe's. Or 7,500 UR points that can be transferred to, for example, United Miles or Hyatt Points. I'm wondering if there are any obvious tricks I'm missing. Obviously you could actually put restaurant spend and actual Lowe's purchases on your card, but I doubt I'll get anywhere close to $1,500 that way. Sure I could pre-purchase $1,000 in restaurant Gift Cards or something but there's opportunity cost to laying out that money. I suspect there's some angle to the HIGC I'm unaware of, though last I played around with one of smaller denomination it was actually kind of a pain to unload.
