Did anybody receive the additional bonus points for the top spend category in Q4?
Any idea when they should post?

Mine also have yet to post...I have the same question.

"The top spend category bonus points will post your account by the end of February 2022."
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks.
Is there any way to check if I will receive the bonus?
I spent the money but it's unclear if my purchases fell into the categories that were listed on Chase's site.
