Targeted Plastiq promo: No service fee for 2 months when scheduling 6 months of mortgage/rent payments

plastiq

As reported by Doctor of Credit, Plastiq is sending out a targeted offer for 2 months of rent or mortgage payments with no service fee when you schedule 6 months of payments and pay with a Mastercard.

Plastiq normally charges 2.5% for Mastercard payments, though they target some people/accounts for a 2% fee on Mastercard payments. As this promotion offers two months free out of six total months of payments, your net fee savings will be 33% — dropping your net fee for six months of Mastercard payments to either 1.66% or 1.33%.  Using a 2% back card will net you a small profit.  Alternatively, some Plastiq payments code for 3X with a Citi AT&T Access More card, though this does not always seem predictable.

To qualify for the promotion, the first payment must be scheduled by March 31st.

  1. I was targeted and still won’t be participating. I don’t like locking myself into 6 months on one card. I’m almost always working on a minimum spend requirement and without the ability to swap cards its just not worth it to lock up 6 months of a mortgage payment.

  2. I scheduled 9 payments and first one before 3/31, but under the breakdown, I still see 2.5% for my first 2 payments…will it reflect when it’s time?
