It’s easier to meet minimum spending requirements to earn credit card sign-up bonuses when you can include your biggest expenses. Unfortunately, some of these (such as rent, home repair, etc.) don’t typically take credit cards as payment.
Plastiq is a service that accepts your credit card as payment (for a fee) and then pays those bills.
Until November 30, 2015, Plastiq is dropping the fee to 1.5% when you make a 1-time, immediate bill payment with any MasterCard.
This could be helpful to folks who want to earn the sign-up bonus on the Citi Prestige, Citi ThankYou Premier, Citi American Airlines cards, Barclaycard Arrival Plus, and more!
Using Plastiq to Pay Bills That Don’t Normally Accept Credit Cards, Like Some Utilities, Could Be Worth It With Their New Promotion!
I’ll explain how it works and if you should consider it!
