Bills you can pay with a credit card


What you need to know before you pay bills with a credit card:

  • Double check to see if there are fees or exceptions for using your credit card.

  • If the percentage you’re paying in fees outweighs the percentage you’re getting in rewards points, it’s not worth it! Use cash instead.

  • Pay off your credit card every month to avoid paying interest!

  • For any regular service or monthly lessons you pay for that don’t take a credit card, ask to pay via PayPal in order to use your credit card!
