Are you looking for how to pay rent with a credit card for free? Radpad was a service you could use to pay rent online using a debit card or credit card and they briefly offered a free rent promotion in August, 2016. Unfortunately, Radpad discontinued their pay rent service but fortunately Plastiq is a great option that lets you pay rent with a credit card – sometimes for free.
Plastiq is a great way to pay rent with a credit card
A good option for paying your rent with credit card or debit card is Plastiq. You can use Plastiq to pay your rent but also other bills including your mortgage, tuition, utilities etc. I don’t pay rent but I periodically use Plastiq to pay my mortgage with a credit card and have had no issues.
Plastiq normally charges a fee up to 2.50% of the payment amount for using a credit card but you can earn no fee payments by using Plastiq’s referral program. Plastiq also periodically offers promotions where it charges a lower fee.
Plastiq Referral Program
Plastiq has a referral program which can earn you and those you refer free online bill payments. For every person who signs up with Plastiq using your referral link and makes a payment of at least $20, you earn $400 dollars of fee free bill payments and that person will get $200 dollars of fee free bill payments.
If you do not have a friend/family member to refer you to Plastiq, I would be grateful if you sign up for Plastiq with my referral link and you will earn $200 dollars of NO FEE bill payments after making a $20 bill payment.
Plastiq Reduced Fee Promotion
In response to the death of Radpad, Plastiq has introduced a new promotion ending October 31, 2016. If you schedule 6 or more rent or mortgage payments with a MasterCard or American Express card, you can lock in a lower Plastiq fee for those payments. Promotional fees are: MasterCard = 1.75% (fee is usually 2.00%), American Express = 2.25% (fee is usually 2.00%).
Updated on 10/13/16 to reflect that Radpad no longer allows you to pay rent online using a debit card or credit card. Also updated to include the new lower fee Plastiq promotion.
