Plastiq Mortgage Discount Promo
Schedule 6 or more rent or mortgage payments with either your MasterCard or American Express, and lock in a lower Plastiq fee for these payments. Promotional fees are as follows:
- MasterCard = 1.75%
- American Express = 2.25%
How It Works
- The only limit is your credit card’s expiration date
- Remember to click “Set Payment Schedule” and not “Review & Pay Now”
- Schedule 6 or more payments, and schedule them as far into the future as you’d like.
- Make sure those payments are for rent or mortgage
- Use a MasterCard OR American Express
- Do it before October 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. PT
You can find the full promotional terms here.
If you didn’t already lock in your mortgage payments in advance during the past promotion, this is a great opportunity to actually make a few bucks or points after paying the fee. For example, the Arrival Plus earns about 2.05% cashback which would equate to a $3 profit on every $1,000 paid. Not a huge amount, but something.
Alternatively, the AT&T Access More card has been known to code as 3X for payments with Plastiq. By using that card, you would earn 3,000 points for only $17.50 in fees on every $1,000 paid. Based on my own personal valuation, those points are worth about $45 or so.
Get $200 Fee Free Dollars
Plastiq has a referral program for all members. If you sign-up with someone’s referral link you get $200 fee-free dollars for payments. Here is my referral link if you are new to Plastiq.
If you have an AT&T Access More card or even an Arrival Plus or similar card, then it may make sense to shift your mortgage payments over to Plastiq. I have found them to be reliable and the service works well.
