If you’ve ever wanted to pay rent with a credit card, you’re not alone! Credit cards are the new emerging payment method for all kinds of bills including rent payments!

1) Build your credit

The biggest benefit of paying rent with a credit card is being able to build your credit with an expense you are expecting and have budgeted for. After you have made the payment, you can pay off the balance, thus boosting your credit! Having good credit can benefit you when it comes to applying for loans or renting new properties. Landlords are more willing to rent to someone with good credit.

2) Rewards!

In addition, most credit cards offer amazing benefits. There are credit cards that offer miles or other rewards when you spend a certain amount. Cash back cards are also a good choice, especially since rent is usually a good chunk of money. Imagine being able to fly to Hawaii because you paid your rent, talk about benefits!

3) Great online Services 

Plus, when you are paying rent online with services like PayRent.com, you are able to get your rent to you landlord quickly, as the transaction times are much faster. You’ll also leave a paper trail of the payment for both your reference and the landlord’s.

4) Avoid Late Fees

A major perk to paying your rent with a credit card is that you won’t be hit with expensive late fees. While most card transactions will have fees associated with them, it’s typically between 2-4%, significanlty cheaper than a 10% late charge or a bounced check and overdraft charges from your bank.
