Can someone tell me if chase gives you the 5 points per dollar on the quarterly categories based upon the "transition date" vs the "post date." I just purchased a big gift card at the grocery store since today is the last day of the quarter but i'm concerned that it may not post until tomorrow or a few days from now...Does anyone have experience with this? Do they honor the transaction date for the extra points? Thanks.

I had the same question as you and sent an SM this morning. I was told they go by transaction date and not post date ;)
This is the response I got:
I am writing in response to your inquiry about the 5% cash
I would like to confirm that, the 5% cash back bonus
points are based on the transaction date and not the post
date. Therefore, if a purchase is made on the last day of
the month, it will still be included for the additional
bonus points even if they dont post for a couple of days.
Further, I see that, your account is enrolled in the third
quarter promotional offer of 5% rewards for purchases
classified as Gas stations and Restaurants from July 1st
to September 30th, 2012. Rewards will post within six to
eight weeks from the purchase date. There is a maximum of
$60.00 or 6,000 reward points on the $1,500.00 spend.

Anyone have ideas to maximize the gas station purchases? My wife and I both have the Freedom cards but spending $3K isn't very likely. I had planned to just buy a bunch of $500 prepaid Visa gift cards at 7-11 but they told me they only accept cash. That's the only gas station I've found the $500 gift cards at. Anyone else have ideas? My other thought was trying to maximize restaurant gift cards but again $3K is too much. I wonder if Cracker Barrel sells prepaid Visa cards?
