Grocery Stores (Not Target or Walmart)
Drug Stores

There are three possibilities for how many points are earned. In the following examples, the effective rates are assuming you cash out the points for 1 cent each, but if you can transfer them to Sapphire Preferred or Ink, the effective rate could be much higher.
  • Cardholders without a Chase checking account
    1 base point per dollar for all spending. Additional 4 bonus points per dollar for spending up to $1500 in quarterly categories.
    Example 1: Spend $1 on a parking meter. Earn 1 point, an effective rate of 1%.
    Example 2: Spend $10 to refill a Metrocard in 2016 Q1. Earn 50 points, an effective rate of 5%.
    Example 3: Spend $100 to buy a Long Island Rail Road Peak Ten-Trip ticket between zones 1 and 3 in 2016 Q1. Earn 500 points, an effective rate of 5%.
    Example 4: Spend $1500 at 7-Eleven in 2016 Q1. Earn 7500 points, an effective rate of 5%.
  • Cardholders with a Chase checking account in older program
    1 base point per dollar plus 10% of the base points plus 10 points per transaction for all spending. Additional 4 bonus points per dollar for spending up to $1500 in quarterly categories.

If I convert a freedom to the FU, mid billing cycle will I still get 5X on purchases made prior to the conversion ?

Is there still a program wherein I can make bonus points for registering my checking account to my Freedom? If yes, how would I go about that? Sorry for my ignorance, I've moved away from the Freedom recently, and I was under the assumption that there was currently no checking account-holder bonus
Noobies give a fresh perspective on things which may appear stale to the experienced :)

Had to cancel my card due to fraud. Will I need to reactivate the quarterly bonuses on the new cards (for this quarter)?

I applied for a freedom as an offer online and it's pending so I called them up and they told me they need a copy of ID and proof of residence, is there a good chance I'll get approved?

after 5\24

Did it show up in the "offers for you" section with the green check?

It was in the offers and I think it had a green check  but I wasn't approved on the spot so it didn't help this time
