Earn 10% on Newly Added Category Bonus with Chase Freedom Cards
Chase has brought back their 10% cash back (10x Ultimate Rewards points) on hotel and car rental bookings for their Chase Freedom cards.
From March 1 through March 31, 2017, Chase Freedom and Chase Freedom Unlimited cardholders can earn 10% (or 10x) for every dollar (up to $2,500) on hotel or car rental purchases. All bookings have to be made through Chase UR’s shopping portal.
One key point here is that just like last year it needs to be booked through Chase UR’s portal. Which means is that a majority of the time these listings are going to be marked up than normal. So this offer is a your mileage may vary type of deal.
Additionally, I personally would never book a car rental unless it’s under the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve. Both cards provide Car Rental Insurance (Primary) whenever you pay with these cards. To me that’s a benefit well worth more than 10% (or 10x).
