Why I love paying rent

$37 flat fee for up to a max $6,000 credit card payment. It used to be a max of $3k for $37. Pre-paying is OK.

Only catch - no Amex.

Unusually inexpensive and easy way to MS from a cost per point perspective paying for something that is for many the biggest chunk of one's monthly budget that can't usually be paid for with a credit card?

I have 16k to go for the BA 100k offer and this makes it really easy given the dearth of MS options in the Bay Area.

Yes, excellent, but it just seems like bragging without naming the provider. :P

Appfolio - it's the rental management portal my building uses.

Note to self - if I move ask the building management if they use it

I use Plastiq nowl 2.5% fee though, but still - I think it is worth it.

Doesn't seems to allow VGC, sad.

Reward debit and onradpad

Or you could use a reward debit and the onradpad service (free for <$5000)...

This... we've been paying rent on credit card for free using this method for a year now.

I started doing this with a reloadable PP which I use my CU CC to load funds. It's a roundabout way but I still get my 1.5% CB w/o paying fees for CC.

I'd hate to spend that much on rent even if I could pay with a credit card with little to no fees.

And the rents are going up... at least in California. My mortgage remains the same for another 25 years

I wonder if Onradpad will send a check to my mortgage bank too? :-)

I'm hesitant to prepay rent by a large amount; if you move out, it might be a pain to get your money back.
