This quarter, Wholesale clubs like Costco earn 5%.

Would this include Costco gas too?

Thanks.
Gas, fuel, wholesale specialty service purchases such as travel, insurance, cell phone and home improvement will not qualify in this category.

Sure, just use a cash card bought on Freedom.

i believe chase is based on when you make the purchase not when it posts but I may be wrong. Amex is based off when it posts
