One of my favorite shopping portals to use is the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal because I find the bonus rates to be very competitive most of the time. Right now, there are two great earning rates for Nike and Macy’s at 10X Ultimate Rewards per dollar spent. The deal for Macy’s is particularly good if you have the Chase Freedom because you’ll earn an additional 5X with the Chase Freedom for a total of 15X (or 15% back) on your purchases.
Keep in mind that you can find a lot of Nike products at Macy’s.
JC Penney’s is also offering 8% back which should also stack with the 5% back on department stores for the Freedom card. I like to sort the stores on the Chase Ultimate Rewards by “earn rate” which makes it very easy to spot out the top deals. Be sure to act quickly because these 10% rates do not typically hang around for very long.
And as always, be sure to read my article on shopping portals before you make your first shopping portal purchase to avoid common rookie mistakes!
