Should You Pay Your NYC Restaurant Week Bill With Chase Freedom or Amex?

Restaurant Week is back with 3-course lunches and dinners for $29 and $42 respectively. It’s a great excuse to try some new restaurants, but you can save even more (always) by maximizing your credit card rewards.

Amex is offering up to four $5 credits when you spend $35 or more on restaurant week meals, while Chase Freedom happens to be in the middle of their 5% back on dining rotating quarter. You have to manually activate both these offers.

So where’s the threshold? If you value your 5% back on Chase at face value (Ultimate Rewards points are actually worth more or or less depending on how you redeem them), your check needs to exceed $100 to get more from your Chase Freedom, which isn’t much of a stretch!
