Chase Third Quarter 2017 5% Cashback Bonus rewards are Restaurants and Movie Theaters

UPDATE: here is the Complete List of participating merchants AND exclusions from Chase itself!

Everybody loves eating, well, at least has to eat, so if you have a Chase credit card that is participating in the 5% Cashback Bonus rewards, make sure you activate the 3rd Quarter promotion, running between July 1st until September 30 in 2017. You earn 5% back in cashback in Restaurants and Movie Theaters!

As usual, there is a maximum of $1500 spending per credit card. Meaning the first $1500 during the quarter you spend in Restaurant and Movies will earn 5% cashback. Any purchases over $1500 during the quarter will earn the standard 1% cashback instead.

The good thing though is that the $1500 limit is per credit card, not per person. So if you have two or more of these credit cards, you can max out at $1500 per credit card.

The other nice thing with Chase is that you can retroactively activate it later in the quarter, so even if you forget to pre-activate, you won’t miss out on the earnings. But there is a cut-off point, you can’t activate it when it gets close to expiration. The activation page (when logged on to your Chase account) or the email prompting you to activate will have the exact dates and details…
