    Example 1: Spend $1 on a parking meter. Earn 1 point, an effective rate of 1%.

    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.

Not really,

So now they are out of stock. When I wrote my post, one card was available for 0.5% off.

Bought several Costco shop cards on one of my non used Freedom card to lock in 5%. Purchased it March 30 but card was charged on shipping date April 2..  Is there anything I can do?

Do 7-11 stores still code as gas stations (even w/o a gas station)?
Thanks.

Regarding CC closure, how dangerous is it to pay off my Freedom card three times in one cycle instead of once in a cycle to be able to take advantage of the Q3 bonus categories?
