Earn 5x at Restaurants in Q3

I've written about the Chase Freedom card a number of times.  Chase Freedom is one of the best "fee free" cards on the market.  While the card is marketed as a cash back card, if you have another Ultimate Rewards earning card (such as an Ink business card or a Chase Sapphire Preferred/Reserve card) you can transfer the cash back points earned to your Ultimate Rewards earning card.  You can then use those points to transfer to a variety of travel partners (British Airways, United Airlines, Hyatt, etc..) which provide far more value then simply redeeming for cash back.

Chase Freedom provides a quarterly bonus where you can earn 5x cash back (and ultimately 5x Ultimate Rewards) on up to $1,500 in spend per quarter.  

Registration/activation is open for Q3 which offers 5x at restaurants and movie theaters.  Chase offered this bonus last year and we were able to hit the entire $1,500 on my card earning 7,500 Ultimate Rewards points.  I may or may not have purchased a large Starbucks gift card to end up exactly at $1,500 at the end of the quarter.
