I've been debating doing the same thing with my paying my rent with my AMEX Premier Rewards Gold card, but it's only because they offered me a 25,000 points reward if I spent $2k within 3 months. I really don't think I can spend that without having rent included. So I was thinking about using that PayPal trick. Question is... is it worth the 25k points bonus? I'm not too experienced with AMEX yet, only been a member since earlier this year, so I'm not sure what 25k points "means". Any feedback would be great.
Yes, 25K points is worth it. Do what you can to get that sign up bonus. An easier way is to use Bluebird. Google "Bluebird Rent".
As for how much is 25K points is worth? See my very long post at the end of this thread here: http://creditcardforum.com/american-express/8297-what-does-25-000-miles-get-you-flight-honestly.html
It's a long post, but it'll be worth it
for you to understand what Membership Reward points are all about.
