You can now activate your 5% cash back/5 Ultimate Rewards points per $ spent (up to $1,500) in bonus categories on your Chase Freedom card. You need to activate by June 14, 2019. The 2nd quarter bonus categories are grocery stores and home improvement stores.
Don’t forget, with the Chase Freedom card, you always earn unlimited 1% cash back/1 point per $ spent on all other purchases.
You can keep track of your category spending too, so you don’t go over the $1,500 spend cap (and then only earn 1:1). After you log into Chase, click on your Ultimate Rewards points. You will get a menu at the top with one choice being “Rewards Activity”. If you click that, you will see how much you have spent for that quarter and can figure out when you are close to the $1500.
