Quick question for you guys. 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.

It's weird...My apartment lets me use a Visa or MC to pay rent. No extra charge at all. All other apartments I lived in (like Zapper_89 said) never allowed CCs. I guess my apt is willing to take the fee. Can't complain I guess...

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.
