I got an email the other day from Plastiq, offering 2x American Express Membership Rewards on payments with Plastiq


Further review of this promotion makes it look like the only reason that you’re getting 2x Membership Rewards from Plastiq is that Plastiq is being coded as a small business by American Express, and currently (through the end of the year), you can get double points by “Shopping Small”.  Note that you DO have to register your card for the Shop Small promotion, which you can do here.  You’ll have to register once for every card you want to register.

There has been confirmation that you can earn 2x points on (just about) ANY American Express card, including the Delta Skymiles cards, Starwood SPG cards, and Hilton Amex cards (in addition to American Express cards)

I have written before about my experiences getting “free” money by paying my mortgage with Plastiq.  I have been paying a couple of the mortgages for some of my rental properties with Plastiq for a few months now and have had nothing but good experiences (and 3x Citi ThankYou points!)

Plastiq fees

The typical fee with Plastiq is 2% for Mastercard and 3% for American Express.  Currently there is a promotion going on that will give you a 1.75% fee for paying with a Mastercard, or 2.25% with an American Express, if you schedule 6 or more payments by October 31st.

As I’ve mentioned before, I use a Citi ThankYou AT&T Access More card for my Plastiq payments, which gives 3x ThankYou points on purchases with Plastiq.  You can no longer sign up for the AT&T Access More card, but there have been reports of people still being able to get the Access More card.

If you haven’t signed up for Plastiq, you will earn $200 fee-free dollars by signing up through my link, and I will also earn a bonus.
