- Bed Bath and Beyond

Activate each quarter at ChaseBonus.com or call the number on the back of the card. The categories usually include at least one big-spending area, and seem to go with the seasons (home improvement for spring, gas and travel for the summer). This is another “keeper” card for me, as I can keep it around and use it when the bonus categories fit my spending needs.
