It was only a few weeks back that I wrote about ways to maximize your credit card rewards earnings through the use of RadPad and Plastiq (Part I, Part II, Part III) for your rent and mortgage, but just a few days ago, RadPad came out with another very lucrative promotion! This post is especially for you renters out there!
From now until the end of the year, RadPad is allowing you to pay using a credit card, fee-free, when using Android Pay to pay your rent! Now as we discussed in our previous posts, if you pay rent with a credit card on RadPad, you will be assessed a 3.49% fee (Part I). We also went over how to circumvent those fees via paying with the PayPal Business Debit MasterCard (PPBDMC) to earn 1% cash back (Part II), and then took that even further and discussed how to earn credit card rewards through purchasing PayPal MyCash cards (Part III).
This promotion essentially cuts out those middle steps to allow you to earn credit card rewards directly, with no fees involved! Huzzah!
How To Sign Up
This is a direct copy & past from the RadPad Blog:
- Make sure you have the Android Pay app on your phone. If you don’t have it, download it here.
- Add a credit card from a participating bank to your Android Pay account.
- Open the RadPad App and select Pay My Rent.
- Add your landlord’s name and where you’ll send your check.
- Pick your charge date and select Android Pay Credit Card.
If you rent, this is a NO BRAINER! Please don't pass this opportunity up to maximize your rewards earnings, pad your airline/mileage and/or earn some extra cash back! Not sure how to go about doing this, hit me up and I'll walk you through it.
Lastly, if you're a renter and you don't have a good rewards earning credit card, reference this post to help you with choosing a good one. However, if none of those appeal to you, let me know and I am more than willing to help you find some other choices that would work for your situation.
