Update: On August 24, 2016, RadPad ended its promotion for free rent payments via Android Pay on the RadPad app. There is now a 2.99% fee for rent payments with a credit card.
Great news! Via Reddit, you’ll be able to use certain Chase credit cards with Android Pay starting September 7, 2016.
This is perfect timing because you can currently use a credit card to pay your rent with NO fees through December 31, 2016, when you pay with Android Pay through the RadPad app. So if you were recently approved for the Chase Sapphire Reserve, this could be an easy way to meet your $4,000 minimum spending requirement.
Here are more details about the news!
Use Chase Cards With Android Pay
Link: Android Pay
Starting September 7, 2016, you’ll be able to add any Chase Visa credit card to your Android Pay account. You can use your Android device to pay when you shop at millions of stores in the US.
Android Pay is already compatible with most banks. So Chase will be a welcome addition!
Folks with the RadPad app will be able to use Android Pay to pay rent and earn miles and points on a Chase card without any fees! Because RadPad is offering a promotion through December 31, 2016. Normally, they charge 3.49% for using a credit card!
Remember you can NOT use RadPad to pay HOA fees, mortgages, or to send checks to yourself or others. RadPad will confirm your payment details before they send out your rent check.
Will this change how you pay rent the rest of the year?
