  • Hi there, it's Ernest from Trip Astute. In this video, we're reviewing the new

  • quarterly bonus categories for the Chase Freedom, Discover It, and Citi Dividend

  • card.

  • (light chiming music)

  • It's hard to believe that we're at the end of the third quarter

  • for 2017. A new quarter means that we have new bonus categories for our

  • rotating bonus credit cards, specifically the Chase Freedom, Discover It, and Citi

  • Dividend card. I'll go through each one and share the new bonus categories.

  • Before we go through each card, I want to let you know that we put together a

  • wallet size cheat sheet that you can download for free from our website. If you're

  • like me and you can't remember the categories, this should be really helpful.

  • I'll include a link in the video description below. For the Chase Freedom

  • card, we're ending the third quarter bonus categories of restaurants and

  • movie theaters. Starting October 1st until the end of December, you'll earn 5%

  • on purchases from Walmart and department stores. Walmart charges include those

  • from Supercenters, Walmart Neighborhood Markets,, and Walmart-branded

  • gas stations operated by Walmart. For department stores, stores listed that

  • qualify for the bonus include: JCPenney, Kohl's, Macy's, Nordstrom, and Nordstrom

  • Rack. To be honest, I'm a little disappointed with Chase's fourth-quarter

  • bonus category. In the past couple years, Chase has offered Amazon and other

  • department stores as their bonus category, which was much more useful and

  • valuable to me. For the Discover card, were also ending the third quarter bonus

  • category of restaurants and entering the fourth quarter on October 1st with a 5%

  • bonus category of and Target. This actually works great for me as I'll

  • likely do most of my holiday shopping either at Amazon or at Target. Lastly,

  • Citi Dividend users are ending the third quarter bonus category of Hilton and

  • airline purchases, and starting October 1st, will be receiving 5% at Best Buy and

  • department stores. Citi defines "department stores" as larger merchants

  • that sell a general line of apparel, home

  • furnishings, furniture, electronics, cosmetics, housewares, and major

  • appliances. In general, these stores have several departments that usually have a

  • separate checkout counter. I would assume that these are very similar to Chase's

  • definition. Make sure you log in and activate the bonus for these cards. While

  • you can wait until December 14th to activate your Chase Freedom bonus

  • category since Chase will award the points retroactively, you're better

  • off doing it now before you forget. Unfortunately, Discover and Citi won't

  • award you a bonus until you activate it, so do it now before you miss out. I've

  • included links to these cards below in case you're interested in applying. As of

  • September 2017, the Chase Freedom is offering a $150

  • bonus opening and Discover is offering a $50 cashback bonus

  • with a cashback match for the entire year, so it's pretty lucrative. Also, in

  • case you're wondering about the Citi Dividend card, it's no longer available

  • for new applicants. Just a reminder too that Trip Astute does get a

  • percentage if you use our links. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but it

  • helps us to continue building content for this channel. If you enjoyed this
