Plastiq is a bill payment service that lets you pay almost any bill with a credit card for a 2.5% fee.  For an overview of Plastiq, please see: Complete guide to Plastiq credit card payments.

Currently Plastiq is running a promotion with Mastercard where they’ll rebate part of the 2.5% fee if you do the following:

  • Schedule 3 or more monthly mortgage payments by checking the box next to recurring.
  • Use a Mastercard.
  • Set up the first 3 payments so they are set to process between September 5, 2017 and December 31, 2017 11:59 p.m. EDT.
  • Look for a notification of eligibility on the payment review screen.

The result, after rebate, should be that you paid a total of 1.5% in fees.

Note that the size of the rebate is dependent upon how much in fees you paid, so I do not recommend applying fee-free-dollars to these payments.

More details can be found on Plastiq’s blog post, here.

Any idea if one can do this promotion with two separate cards, each having their own set of 3 payments? For instance one card could be 3 regular payments and the other card 3 extra principal payments. I sent them a text message through the app but no word yet. If you have a plastiq contact and can verify that would be awesome.

Is there a cashback card that could make it profitable, or is this just for sign up bonuses?
