Ultimate Rewards points may be redeemed for a statement credit to Pay Yourself Back for purchases made at select merchants within the 90 days before the redemption request date.
Currently, only purchases made with your Chase card with Ultimate Rewards at restaurants and grocery stores (including takeout & eligible delivery services), and home improvement stores will qualify. For information about Chase rewards categories and an example of eligible merchants, please see our FAQs.
Categories, eligible merchants, and purchase transaction eligibility may change from time to time without notice.
Redemptions require a minimum of 1 point.
Each point you redeem for a statement credit towards eligible Pay Yourself Back purchases is worth $0.015, which means that 100 points equals $1.50 in redemption value. Chase has the right to change redemption values at any time.
Statement credits will post to the card account within 3 business days of a request to redeem and will appear on the monthly Chase credit card billing statement within 1-2 billing cycles.
Statement credits will reduce your balance but you are still required to make at least your minimum payment. Chase reserves the right to determine which purchases qualify for a statement credit.
Even though a merchant or some of the items that it sells may appear to fit within a rewards category, the merchant may not have a merchant code in that category. When this occurs, purchases with that merchant won't qualify for rewards offers on purchases in that category

Any thoughts on whether:
1. The lower annual fee will apply to an upgrade from the freedom in July?
2. Can apply to prior purchases made on freedom (during 5x grocery period) after the card is upgraded to reserve?

Is this good only for one grocery purchase transaction per card?

It seems that restaurants are the big winner as you can get 4.5% back. For groceries I would say the Amex Blue Cash Preferred or a rotating 5% card is best option. The $300 travel credit being used for groceries is great although most people can use it either way, this just makes it easier.

Now this can get interesting for someone who spent on groceries with a freedom and wants to upgrade to take advantage as Dan pointed out in his post that this can be done. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW MUCH OF THE ANNUAL FEE WILL BE CHARGED AND IF YOU CAN UPGRADE AND DOWNGRADE ON THE SAME DAY?

No. You can redeem points for multiple purchases.

So you get 5x points and used.66? Sounds like a win to me.

Anyone ask?
Friend was told 550. He was also able to redeem prior purchases almost instantaneously.

I SMed and they also said 550. I replied by asking whether that would still be the case if I upgraded in July and am waiting for a response.
