Good news for folks who like earning AMEX Membership Rewards points! You can now earn 2X AMEX Membership Rewards points for paying your bills with Plastiq!
Although the end date is listed as December 31, 2016, we don’t know how long this deal will last. So if you’re interested in earning bonus AMEX Membership Rewards points, I’d take advantage of this deal sooner rather than later.
I’ll explain why.
Plastiq Payments Earning 2X AMEX Membership Rewards
With Plastiq, you can pay any bill (businesses or individuals) using their service and they’ll charge you a flat 2.5% fee. Or sometimes less with promotions.
Some folks like Plastiq because it can be a good way to meet minimum spending requirements or earn miles and points or cash back on big bills like tuition or property taxes. You can read my review of Plastiq here.
And right now, you can earn 2X AMEX Membership Rewards points for payments made through Plastiq with Membership Rewards earning cards like The Enhanced Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN, The Business Gold Card from American Express OPEN, or AMEX EveryDay Preferred card.
Note: Be sure to enroll in AMEX Shop Small with your card so you earn the 2X points!
American Express hasn’t verified this news, but Plastiq sent out an email to their users earlier today stating you should receive the bonus points. And folks have already reported earning 2X AMEX Membership Rewards points when using their AMEX cards to make payments through Plastiq.
My hunch is that Plastiq payments are coding as small business purchases, and that’s why folks are earning the bonus points.
For that reason, we don’t know how long this will last. So if you’re interested in the deal, I’d make a few payments with Plastiq sooner rather than later! And don’t forget, Plastiq is also charging a smaller fee for AMEX cards right now.
You can currently earn 2X AMEX Membership Rewards points for payments made with your AMEX card through Plastiq through December 31, 2016.
Enroll in AMEX Shop Small with your card to earn the double points.
Some folks like Plastiq because it can be a good way to meet a card’s minimum spending requirements, or to earn miles, points, and cash back to pay bills that don’t ordinarily accept credit card payments.
