How to max out Q3 bonus/$75 of free money
This is another slam dunk quarter. Many people spend a lot of money on gas so if you do just shift all of your household gas charges to the Freedom for the quarter. Note that the gas station bonuses do not include Costco and Sam’s Club and more restrictions. FAQ.
Buy Gas gift cards: If you aren’t getting more than 5% cash back on gas from another credit card here’s a chance to get 5% off . If you have the cash consider buying gift cards to use later in the year.
Streaming services: I don’t subscribe to any streaming service so I can’t offer any advice on how to maximize this. If you have the cash and can prepay then that would be a great way to max it out. I would NOT recommend signing up for any streaming services just to take advantage of this deal. This is a quarter where I won’t participate at all.
