in Credit Card bonuses

Below chart gives you the 5% Cash Back Quarterly Categories  for Chase Freedom, Discover It, & Citi Dividend. I also added the year round 5% in office supply stores and cable bundled services with the Chase Ink Plus, Chase Ink Bold, and Chase Ink Cash. For American Express, you can get the SimplyCash Business Card or the Blue Cash Preferred to earn 5% or 6% in their respective categories below.  You should know that Chase, Discover, and Citi open up enrollment for the bonus categories about two weeks before the new quarter begins. Here are the categories that will be earning 5% cash back for the Quarter III 2014.

My Chase confirmation for the 5% categories says Gas Stations, Drugstores and Starbucks for Jan 1 to March 31, not restaurants and Amazon.

US Bank Cash+ card (relatively new) has one 2% cash back category (drug, gas, groceries) every quarter and 2 5% cash back categories every quarter. Up to you to pick the categories every quarter. 5% cash back categories include Bill Pay (utilities, insurance, internet/cable), airlines, hotels, etc. So far, the same category choices have been available every quarter but T&Cs state they can change.

Yes, US Bank Cash+ should be added to the table. Another is the Sallie Mae World Mastercard. 5% cash back year round (remitted as statement credit, student loan payment, or upromise deposit) on grocery, gas, and bookstore purchases, with $250, $250, and $750 monthly caps, respectively. 1% on everything else.

Chase Ink ended their 5% last I checked, Its 3% now I think.

Nope, it’s still 5%. You can see it once you click through the link.
