Whoosh, I am beginning to master this – scheduled rent payments through 2017 for my office, which I share with others, who pay their share to me. I get double points for the whole payment, so the amount I spend for my share of the rent, AND the fee, nets me over 6 points per dollar.

zyfy – Yes, I pay mine that way. I scheduled payments out over 4 years to the date of card expiration for both mortgage and HOA.

Can homeowner association fee be categorized as mortgage or rent?

Brian – is that so? I was also looking to use mine and wife’s CSR to meet the minimum requirements and was looking at the 1.75% until I saw it only applied to MasterCard. I will give it a try. However, do they have to be upfront about the cost or can they charge you later finding its non-MC card? I have never used Plastiq or any rent paying service before.

Despite the fact that it says for Mastercard, I used this to help meet the spend on my CSR and was charged the lower rate. I also only made one payment.
