The new category bonus for the Chase Freedom and Freedom Flex from July through September is grocery stores and select streaming services. This is going to be a great way to save on groceries in general, but also a great way to save on Disney gift cards. With no annual fee, the Chase Freedom Flex is card everyone should have in their wallet.
For every dollar you spend up to $1,500 at grocery stores or on gym memberships, you’ll earn 5 Chase Ultimate Rewards. These can be redeemed for cash as a statement credit at one cent each.
Disney Gift Cards
Most grocery stores sell Disney gift cards. And, most grocery stores offer 2x fuel points on gift card purchases. Many offer regular bonuses of 4x fuel points if you’re watching for the digital coupons. This gives you an option for saving even more if you take advantage of fuel point programs at your grocery store (we do).
- Fuel points are a great way to plus up your savings on Disney gift cards
Maximize the Savings
Chase Ultimate Rewards can be redeemed as a statement credit at one cent each, like I mentioned above. But, you can also move Chase Ultimate Rewards to your other cards as well. When you have one with an annual fee like Chase Sapphire Preferred, your redemption options increase. You can book travel through Chase or transfer the points to Southwest Airlines, Hyatt, United, JetBlue and others. The points can be worth as much as double. So, transferring points from your Chase Freedom to a card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred makes them more valuable.
The 5% back you earned can really become as much as 10% when you use a Chase Ultimate Rewards Strategy.
- Using a Chase Ultimate Rewards Strategy is the #1 way I save on Disney vacations.
The Chase Freedom Flex has no annual fee. Earning 5% cash back at grocery stores makes this a fantastic card. Plus, the Chase Freedom is offering a sign up bonus of 20,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards ($200) after you spend $500 in the first three months.
