Are you a regular car commuter or have a big road trip coming up this summer? Cut down on your driving costs by taking advantage of this card offer from Chase — and save on your binge-watching at the same time.

Chase Freedom just brought back 5% cash-back rewards at gas stations and added a new 5% cash back category on streaming services, making it one of our favorite cards this season.

Chase Freedom


Why we like it: Each quarter, this card offers 5% cash back in select categories for up to $1,500 in purchases. Right now these categories include gas stations, so it’s perfect for summer travel or regular commuting. And, as mentioned, the card has added streaming services as a new category — including Netflix, Hulu, Sling, Vudu, FuboTV, Apple Music, SiriusXM, Pandora and Spotify. There’s also a $150 cash back bonus after you spend just $500 on this card within the first three months. That adds up!

More highlights:

  • 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first 15 months
  • 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in select categories each quarter
  • 1% cash back on all purchases, unlimited
  • No annual fee

This card’s 0% introductory APR presents a great opportunity to transfer balances from high-interest cards. (Balance transfers are subject to a 3% transaction fee, with a $5 minimum, for the first 60 days. The fee is 5% after that.) And using this card racks up valuable travel rewards that can be transferred to more than a dozen major rewards programs — for better deals on travel year-round.
