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.
Good news from Doctor of Credit for folks who use Android Pay! Through December 31, 2016, you can use a credit card to pay your rent with NO fees, when you pay with Android Pay through the RadPad app.
This could be a great way to meet a new card’s minimum spending requirement!
Here’s more about this deal.
Pay Rent With a Credit Card – Without Fees!
Link: RadPad Promotion
This is a terrific free way to meet minimum spending requirements and unlock a big sign-up bonus on a new card. Plus, you’ll earn miles, points, or cash back, using your credit card of choice!
What Do You Need?
RadPad accepts all major credit cards, including AMEX, Visa, Discover, and Mastercard. And although Android Pay is compatible with most banks, Chase cards will NOT work.
That’s because the Citi Double Cash card earns cash back twice, 1% when you make a purchase and 1% when you pay off your bill, with no limits on rewards or category restrictions.
And the Discover it Cash Back card offers 1% cash back on non-bonus categories (like rent payments!). For new cardholders, Discover will also match all the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your first year.
So earning cash back on your rent payments could really add up!
How Does RadPad Work?
When you pay your rent with RadPad, they’ll send a physical check to your landlord. It’s pretty simple!
I have 2 friends who have been happy using RadPad for nearly a year. All of their payments have been on time. And they like that the landlord doesn’t need to sign-up for anything.
