We’ve written a few times about Plastiq, which is an online bill paying service that allows you to use a credit card to pay bills, including those that you might not normally be able to pay with a credit card. Their standard fee is 2.5% of the total bill, but they often run promotions that allow you to get their fee lower than that. As a general rule, I would not recommend paying 2.5% in most cases, though there are scenarios where I think that it makes sense

Get $10,000 in fee free spend for signing up a new business

Now through March 31, if you sign up as a new business and make $10,000 in new payments by March 31, you will get $10,000 in fee-free spend. So it’s like a 1.25% rate (half off) for your first $20,000 in spend.

Generally I’ve found Plastiq’s fraud protection to be fairly decent; meaning that if you’re trying to start up a new “business”, I’d be prepared to answer plenty of questions about your business and its revenues and such

I was given a contact email address of [email protected] for any questions about the promotion.

Get $500 in fee free spend

If you don’t have a business, you can still get $500 in fee free spend by signing up through my referral link. You have to spend $500 with Plastiq to get the $500 fee-free, so in reality, it’s like getting $1000 in spend at a 1.25% rate.

Good luck and happy spending
