Lowe’s gift cards for Chase Freedom 5x 2nd quarter

Tomorrow April 1st, the new Chase Freedom 5% cash back (up to $1,500 spend) quarter.  This time the 5x categories include restaurants, movie theaters, and Lowe’s.
We love eating out and watching movies, so getting 5x Ultimate Rewards points from these purchases will be great. 

Today I will be discussing the points earning possibilities at Lowe’s.
After church (Happy Easter!) and brunch, we went over to Lowe's to check out their gift card mall.  They sell gift cards to most major retailers. 
I’ve listed all the gift cards that were offered for sale at my local Lowe’s.  Your store may be different.  If you were going to shop at any of the gift card locations anyways, it makes perfect sense to first buy your gift cards at Lowe’s to get 5x Ulimate Rewards points (up to $1,500 spend).
Fashion: Nordstrom, Babies R Us, Kohl’s, JC Penney, DSW, Petco, Petsmart, Lane Bryant, American Eagle, Loft, Pac Sun, Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Bath & Body Works, Sephora, Catherines, Aeropostale, Forever 21, TJ Maxx, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Marshalls, Justice Clothing, Claire’s, Ann Taylor

Dining: PF Chang’s, Cheesecake Factory, Outback Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Red Robin, California Pizza Kitchen, Ruby Tuesday, TGI Fridays, Mimi’s Café, Applebees, Chili’s, Starbucks, Buffalo Wild Wings, IHOP, Subway, Little Caesars, Jamba Juice, Cold Stone, Pizza Hut
Travel & Recreation: Marriott, Southwest Airlines, Jiffy Lube, Shell Gift Card, Spa Finder, Jo-Ann, Michael’s, Staples, OfficeMax. 
Books, Movies & Music: Amazon, Groupon, Guitar Center, Toys R Us, Build A Bear, Xbox Live, GameStop, Disney, Regal Theaters, Barnes & Noble, AMC Theaters, Fandango, Nook, iTunes
Sports: Bass Pro Shops, Foot Locker, Sports Authority,, Finish Line, Nike, REI, Nascar

I will probably stock up on gas gift cards, because this is an expense we cannot avoid.   Using gas gift cards at the pump allows us to: 1) earn much more points (5x in this case) and 2) pay the “cash / debit” price for gas, which is usually cheaper than paying for gas directly with a credit card. 
I was hoping to find cash equivalents like Visa, AMEX, or Mastercard gift cards at Lowe's, but unfortunately they did not sell them.

As you know, I am a big, big fan of the Chase Freedom credit card.  I like the card so much that I signed up for 
2 versions of it!  

If you don't have a Chase Freedom card, go here to apply.

  1. This is a great list ! I walked by the card mall last night too focused on my list to think, but I went to look up what they offered today on their website and it only showed the lowes cards online, none of the other ones, so this helped me a lot. Thanks
