Chase pushes credit card promotion involving major mobile wallets
Chase is pushing a new promotion for its Freedom credit cardholders that will see 5 percent cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in quarterly categories during the first three months of 2018, including purchases they make with the card in four mobile wallets.
Chase said in a press release this is the first time that cardholder will earn the extra rewards through this new offer when using Android Pay, Apple Pay, Chase Pay or Samsung Pay.
The first quarter’s 5 percent categories also include purchases made at gas stations and with internet, cable TV and phone service merchants, including AT&T, Verizon, Spotify, Hulu and Netflix.
“We want Chase Freedom cardmembers to try and enjoy the convenience of mobile wallets,” said B.J. Mahoney, general manager of Chase Freedom. “They can maximize their rewards not only by paying for necessities, but also by splurging, like for their favorite coffee, when using a mobile wallet.”
