In the US, Chase Freedom has added a new quarterly category - PayPal - and also brought back some customer favourites - Chase Pay and grocery stores - from April through June 2018. The new category is the latest way that Chase and PayPal are making good use of the two companies' partnership to deliver new benefits to their customers. This article is copyright 2018 The Best Customer Guide.

From April through June, Chase Freedom customers will earn 5% cash back on up to $1500 in combined purchases in these categories:

  • PayPal - which can be used online, on mobile or in-app across more than 18 million large, mid-sized and small businesses around the world;
  • Chase Pay using the app, online or in 3rd party apps;
  • Grocery stores, including traditional brick-and-mortar food retailers and online delivery services

Chase Freedom customers can continue to experience the convenience of using their card for everyday purchases in two mobile wallets this quarter: Chase Pay is back for the second time this year and PayPal is a new mobile wallet category addition for this quarter, building on the existing Chase and PayPal relationship.

Customers can activate for the quarter beginning on March 15th.

"We keep adding ways to make Chase Freedom even more rewarding for our cardmembers," said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom. "They can earn cash for every day expenses whether they pay with their phone, on the internet or in store with their familiar blue Chase Freedom card."
