Chase unveiled next year's quarterly rewards categories for its Chase Freedom credit card along with doubling its sign-up bonus for new cardholders.

The credit card issuer said Tuesday that new Chase Freedom cardholders can earn $200 cash-back after spending $500 in the card's first three months. Before, new cardholders would earn only $100, says company spokesman Rob Tacey.

Chase Freedom cardholders can earn 5 percent back (up to $1,500) in the following, rotating categories. All other purchases earn 1 percent unlimited cash-back.

First quarter (Jan. 1 - March 31): Gas stations, movie theaters and Starbucks

Second quarter (April 1 - June 30): Restaurants and Lowe's home improvement stores

Third quarter (July 1 - Sept. 30): Gas stations and Kohl's

Fourth quarter (Oct. 1 - Dec. 31): Amazon, Zappos and select department stores

Discover also features rotating quarterly categories for 5 percent cash-back bonus (also up to $1,500). The credit card issuer's first-quarter categories are restaurants and movies.

Discover and Chase Freedom cardholders must register their cards in advance to take advantage of the accelerated rewards.

What are you favorite rotating categories?

Where can you apply for this card? All the sites I have checked only offer a $100 reward not $200 reward.

I think this card is wonderful but to promote more cash back for new card membership is not fair I think whoever has the card already should get an extra hundred for just having the card.
