    Does anyone know when the first quarter bonus will be announced for the Chase Freedom? I am thinking of adding this card in an upcoming churn but if the 1st quarter bonuses are something I will not use, like movie theaters and best buy, I will wait for later next year.

    They announce the entire year all at once. Last year, they announced on the last day of November. It should be up by the beginning of next week.

    Also, movie theaters this past year was in addition to grocery. Out of $1500, I did $15 at movies and $1487 at grocery :p

    Gas was Q1 and Q3 this year and groceries was Q2. They are popular everyday things so hopefully they return with the same or better frequency as last year (hopefully not in the same quarter though!).

    well, what do you know? Chase was probably reading this thread, because the first quarter bonus does indeed include pharmacies!

    OK Chase, since you are listening, how about a bonus on transfers of UR to UA? :)

    Well, there's always the AMEX Blue Cash Preferred (6% at grocery stores up to $6K and 3% on gas) and then there always the Discover card rotation which I haven't been able to find yet.

    For me it's all about "incremental x" and taking advantage of the "10 points per transaction." That's why I love it when restaurants/dining are 5x, because my $8 dining charges come up as 50 points.

    Having no grocery store blows, mainly because it's so easy to get GCs.

    The Freedom is only in my wallet for its bonus categories and purchases under $3 (e.g. vending machines). All other scenarios are sub-optimal.

    the +10 UR for any purchases makes it worth
