No Capital One payments through Plastiq for now

Last week, Plastiq sent out an email to those who have used Capital One credit cards for payments alerting them to the fact that Capital One has asked Plastiq to temporarily suspend the processing of payments on Capital One credit cards. Hopefully, this is a temporary issue. Here’s an excerpt from the email sent: As you know, Capital One has asked us to temporarily suspend processing of payments with their cards. We’re working closely with…

Plastiq 3x Is Dead Again

Ink Business Preferred

Lazarus has died again. Back in August 2018, we shared the bad news that Plastiq transactions no longer coded as 3x with the Chase Ink Business Preferred card. Greg subsequently shared his suggestions for alternative cards to use with Plastiq. If you decided to ignore those suggestions and continued using the Ink Business Preferred, that paid off as it subsequently started earning 3x again. Well, bad news – at some point early last month, Plastiq…

We’ve received reader reports (and so has Doctor of Credit) that the Alliant Cashback Visa is no longer earning any rewards on Plastiq payments. Whether you’re in your first year of having the card and earning 3% on all purchases or earning 2.5% in subsequent years, you’ll actually earn 0% on Plastiq payments. Personally, I was surprised to hear that people were still using the Alliant card on Plastiq. I stopped using mine when most personal Visa…

We recently reported that Plastiq was (for a very short time) offering all payments made on a Mastercard for a fee of just 1.5%, but it turned out to be a glitch that was not intended to be so widely available. However, if you scheduled future payments during the time when Plastiq was showing a 1.5% rate, there’s good news: Plastiq reached out to us last night to let us know that they will honor…
