Received Q4 Reward cc Reminders?

Just wondering whether you received e-mail reminders to make your Q4 rewards elections/selections? Normally I receive them from all relevant cards like clockwork......Discover, Chase Freedom, US Bank........this quarter,deadly silence from all 3 cards. Are they just picking on me or everyone?

I got a notice from Chase Freedom last week about this. Did you forget to send them a Christmas Card, or something

Yes, what, did you not pay them any interest this year?
I did get the notice, but I did see that the enrollment site was a little glitchy, at least for me. So maybe there was an issue (at least with Chase Freedom).

Got a Chase Freedom notice by e-mail today that I can redeem my whopping $5 bucks reward money (you can see I'm a big credit card user). Usually wait until the end of the year, then call them on the phone and have the $ credited to my account. Usually get about $75 a year, so what's not to like about free money?

I combine points on Freedom, DH's Ink, and my Sapphire for points that transfer to a bunch of airlines and hotels. We get free flights and rooms!
I am not excited about the categories for this upcoming quarter, though. I only buy from Amazon, and I have a store card that gets 5% already.

Amazon Store card might give 5% rebate but using Freedom and combining the points to the Sapphire Preferred means 6.25% if used for travel.

OR, connect the Chase Freedom card to your Amazon account and use the points to buy stuff. But my all time favorite is to build up the points and take a statement credit. Gives me plenty of opportunity to engage in mental accounting to justify my expenses! "See that new gizmo I just charged will be $150 cheaper after I apply the statement credit!"

Good points! I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think I will ditch the store card while the promo is going on for Freedom. Thanks!
