Maxing out the Chase Freedom 5X
The Chase Freedom Card offers the 5% rewards at Wholesale Club on up to a $1,500 each quarter this year, which includes Q2 ends in a few days, Q3 which runs July through September, and Q4 which runs October through December. We have $4,500 bandwidth which can earn 5x rewards in 2006.
Keep in mind that you do need a membership at Cosco, BJ’s and Sam’s Club. Samclub.com allows you to buy without membership by adding a 10% fee. Sam’s also offers one-day passes in-store to try them out. Bear in mind that there are other categories alongside the Wholesale Category, and maxing out at Wholesale might not be necessary for you.

Costco or Sam’s Club Gift Card
If you plan on doing lots of regular shopping at Wholesale Clubs, then you can max out your quarterly category by buying $1,500 in gift cards, thus locking in the discount on your future purchases. All three of these stores sell their gift card in-store. Only Costco and Sam’s sell their gift cards online.
Purchasing Gift Card for Gas
Another thing to keep in mind is that all these Wholesale Clubs sell gas too, usually at a low discounted rate.
While the Freedom category clearly excludes gas, it has been noted that you can simply buy Club Gift Cards and use those to buy gas. This works for Costco and for Sam’s Club.
