Chase Q4 2019 Freedom Categories

I always look forward to the start of a new quarter - it means new 5x bonus categories for the Chase Freedom card.

Just announced, these will be: Department Stores, Paypal, and Chase Pay

Personally I find these disappointing.  It means you have to structure your spend around mobile devices which is something I don't generally do for security reasons.  Paypal seems hard to use in general for most day to day purchases.
