Headline is missing a huge piece of information: Chase Freedom $15 credit when you use Android Pay 5 times AT GROCERY STORES

rated:
Thanks, fixed

rated:
Is there some kind of sign up for this? I hate that there's a hard cap and no way to know if you hit the cap.

rated:
You really cannot enroll either. And its the first 24,000 customers who hit 5 transactions that get the $15 credit.

Why is it so hard to earn free money

rated:
I'm up for the challenge.

rated:
Another challenge (in some areas): finding a grocery store that accepts Android Pay. In my area, the grocery competition comes down to Kroger versus Walmart versus Meijer (with Meijer being the smallest player in that competition and all of their stores being found in distant suburbs, whereas the first two are much closer to and/or within the central part of the city). Of those three, only Meijer accepts Android Pay/Apple Pay.

Of course, that also depends upon what Chase considers as a grocery store. I know for the Freedom rotating categories, they don't count Walmart(not even the Neighborhood Markets that ONLY sell groceries), though they DO count Meijer even though it is much more than just a grocery.

rated:
Good thing this is a 5% cash back quarter for groceries on the Freedom card.

Looks like Wholefoods, Trader Joe's, Sprouts, and the Fresh Market are the only safe options in my area (i.e., undisputed grocery stores). There could be more but I don't even recognize 1/3 of the stores on their list of partners... some could very well be grocery stores but you can't filter by type of store. I wish terms had included a list of eligible stores, but that would be too user friendly apparently.

On a positive note, the app tracks your eligible purchases for you (see attached). Mine updated almost immediately. Hopefully getting the little check mark after each purchase means that the offer has not reached it's limit of 24,000 yet.

I have two Freedom cards, are they both eligible or just one?

rated:
When I completed my 5th purchase today, I noticed that for the first time the app actually listed 5 qualifying grocery stores as examples. However, two of those listed don't even appear on Adroid Pay's list of stores. In case it helps anyone, they are Price Chopper and Market by Price Chopper.

Where do you find this?  You say "app," but *what* app and where?  I've looked everywhere through the Android Pay app and the Chase app and I don't find anywhere where this might possibly be located.  Can you provide some specifics?

 I was referring to the Android Pay app that you open up and swipe at the store register to make your payment, not the Châse app. I don't recall seeing it until I had set up the app, including adding the only card that qualifies for this offer (Châse Freedom). Once I added the Freedom card, the offer in the OP popped up automatically. After I made my first purchase with the Freedom card, the purchase tracker for this offer appeared automatically and has been on my app "home page" ever since (I don't have to do anything to access it). If you still don't see it after making your first purchase at a qualified grocery store, try deleting any other cards you have registered in the app (the only one I have registered is the Freedom card, so all communications to me about offers are about the Freedom card). You can always add any unregistered other cards back after you make 5 qualifying grocery purchases... which I did in less than 3 days because no minimum purchase is required... my smallest purchase was less than $5.

One card down. 3 to go. The things I'll do for $60. Ugh.

App only lets you track one Freedom at a time.

Huh.  Thanks for the clarification.  I got the email, installed the Android Pay app and loaded the Freedom card for which I got the email, and that was the only card I had registered.  No tracker.

But again you have me confused, this time with "app that you open up and swipe at the store register."  What do you mean by that?  I've never swiped anything at the register.  I hold the phone up to the POS and it beeps and a receipt spits out.  Is there something special I should be doing?

Chris.

 That's exactly what I meant by "swipe." If you don't see that purchase tracker after making an eligible purchase at a qualifying store, I'm out of ideas since mine showed up automatically and I see no way to either access it in the menus or make it go away (although you can dismiss/hide the "offer punch card" by tapping on it).

After adding the card to AP it'll add another slot next to your card for the promo offer

I had 2x Discover cards saved in AP (targeted AP/Disc promo) -- the Freedom offer popped up in another slot after I added my Freedom card (AP would show 4 items: Disc/Disc/Freedom/Promo)

After getting the $15 credit, I removed both Freedom + promo from AP -- I added a 2nd Freedom but this time the promo offer didn't show up

Will make my 5th purchase on 2nd card today so hopefully I get the credit in a few days (if 24000 credits haven't been given out yet) -- if not then no big deal since I'll still get 5x quarterly c/b on grocery

Thanks jatan and five.  Still confused why what I'm seeing is so different from you.  Honestly, everytime I've used it at the store, I've just unlocked my phone, held it up, then immediately put my phone in my pocket.  I never even thought of opening up Android Pay and/or looking at the screen to see if anything popped up.  But when I look at Android Pay now, all I see is my Freedom card, nothing else shows.  I guess I just have to wait to see if a credit appears.

Chris,

I loaded my Chase Freedom onto my android pay app and didn't get the tracker that Jatan and Five described either. Then today, when I opened my android pay app, it prompted me to make it my default digital payment app (Samsung Pay is my current default). When I clicked yes to make it my default, the Chase Freedom promo showed up in one of the credit card slots and gave me credit for my first supermarket purchase today.

Try making it your default app and see if that helps. If it's already your default app, I'm not sure why it didn't show up.

rated:
IIUC this promotion is not up yet?
Is it still worth trying ?

rated:
I think it's worth doing if your preferred store takes Android Pay.

FWIW, I got the tracker on one of my cards, I didn't get it on the other, but I got the credit on both.

Also, there was some speculation earlier in the thread that the offer may only apply to "qualifiying" grocery stores.  My experience would seem otherwise.  Around here, I have yet to find any grocery store that *doesn't* accept Android pay, even the one-store mom-and-pop operations seem to take Android Pay.  And so far, AP purchases art any grocery-coded store seem to qualify.

 I thought the discussion above referred to purchases needing to be made at a "proper" grocery store (not just buying groceries at stores that sell groceries like Tàrget and Wàlmart), and trying to figure out which grocery stores accept Android Pay given the incomplete list and inability to search on their website. But, It's good to have someone confirm that ANY grocery store with Android Pay actually works for this promo as the terms and conditions imply, even the mom & pop stores!

  Did you add both cards to the same phone(same android pay account), or 2 different phones?
I have shopped 5 times in 1st card on 5/24 but have not yet received $15 statement credit yet. Can I load 2nd to the same phone, shop, and get the offer?  TIA.

You can load more than one card to a phone for multiple credits.

I added my Freedom card to Android Pay on my LG Volt to try it out but it didn't work i.e. nothing happened at the terminal which does accept Android pay.
Is it possible that NFC on my LG Volt is somehow broken?

  Go into Settings then NFC -- make sure NFC is turned on and select AP as the default payment app (or the option to use whatever app is open when paying)

You'll want to touch your phone on different parts of the payment terminal -- I usually try left side then middle then right side

Not sure if LG Volt is designed the same way, but on my Galaxy S4 the OEM battery has NFC built in so people using generic aftermarket batteries won't have working NFC

I had NFC turned on and Android Pay is the only payment app on my phone.
I also touched the phone everywhere at the payment terminal.
My LG Volt is a Sprint device and have changed nothing including the battery.
Months ago I tried Android pay at CVS but it didn't work either.
At that time I thought CVS probably has it turned off but now I am begining to believe that there might be something wrong with my phone itself.

rated:
CVS wont work -- they want their own CVS Pay (same with Walmart& Walmart Pay)

In the AP menu there's a "Nearby Stores" option which will show nearby places where it'll work -- you can make a small purchase somewhere else to test it out

DW just got a reminder today that "There's still time to take advantage of this offer," so apparently all 24,000 haven't been used up yet.

Just finished my 5th transaction on my second Freedom card; I'll start our third Freedom card tonight at Trader Joe's.

I used my Sprint LG Volt at Meijer 5 times. The default NFC works.  No issues.  You may want to try a different terminal.  I had to change for 2 times.  My Chase card got $15 already.
