The Chase Freedom card's newest cash-back promotion is now available for enrollment (No longer open to new applicants). This quarter's bonus will be applied to purchases made on Amazon, Zappos, Audible and You won't be able to start earning cash back just yet — that starts on October 1st, and you'll have until December 31 to take advantage of the promotion. Once you activate your card through the Chase Freedom website and the earning period begins, you'll earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases on these websites.

As a reminder, you can still receive 5% cash back at gas stations and at Kohl's if you activated the previous quarter's bonus. And if you don’t already have the card, now's as good a time as any to sign up — Chase Freedom is currently offering a sign-up bonus of 10,000 points after you spend $500 in the first three months. You can redeem points for cash back (10,000 points = $100), or you can transfer them to Ultimate Rewards if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Ink Plus. From there, you can transfer Ultimate Rewards points to travel partners like Southwest, Hyatt and United.

Get 5% cash back on Amazon with Chase Freedom this fall.

If you're already a cardholder, you can register here to activate your spending bonus each quarter. If you activate your card for these categories prior to each quarterly deadline, Chase will retroactively credit you with bonus points on your category spending from earlier in the quarter, though there's really no reason not to activate 5% cash back as soon as the registration period opens.

On your statement, the bonus earned prior to your activation date will be listed separately and itemized by category. If you have multiple Chase Freedom accounts, be sure to activate them all.
