Activate Chase Freedom 2019 5% Bonus Categories

The no annual fee Chase Freedom card is one of our favorites for saving on Disney vacations; so much so that we have two of them. It offers 5% cash back in the form of Ultimate Rewards points on bonus categories each quarter. These bonus categories often include places that sell Disney gift cards, making it great way to save on your Disney vacation.

From January through March, 2019, the bonus categories for the Chase Freedom are gas, tolls, and drugstores. You can now activate the bonus.

Saving on Disney Gift Cards

Walgreens sells Disney gift cards. And, Walgreens was recently one of the Chase Offers. It offered a 10% rebate. If we see that one come back in the first quarter, that will be a nice 15% discount on Disney gift cards.

Otherwise, gas stations, tolls, and drug stores are often big spending categories for a many families and a nice way to rack up the Ultimate Rewards. But, we don’t see this upcoming quarter being a great way to save on Disney gift cards compared to other categories we’ll likely see in 2019.

Chase Ultimate Rewards

While Ultimate Rewards are worth one cent each for cash, they can be worth up to twice as much if you use a Chase Ultimate Rewards Strategy. You can transfer them to airline partners like JetBlue, Southwest, and United, or even hotel partners like Hyatt.
