For a while, MilesTalk was partnering with Roomi to offer fee-free rent payments via credit card.

The promotion went, as expected, too well…. Nobody expected Roomi to absorb those credit card fees forever.

Recently, Roomi shifted to a model wherein you are required to register with the Roomi system and also make your payments using ACH (meaning that you must have your landlord’s bank account and routing information.

They also went to a 2% – 2.5% fee.

Determined to offer something special for all the MilesTalkers that were enjoying the promos but felt that 2.5% was too high (especially considering various promotions from Plastiq for as low as %), I’ve negotiated a deal with Roomi for MilesTalk readers as follows:

The first 185 readers to use the MilesTalk / Roomi link will get a special 1.9% payment rate.

I know, it’s not free. But it is the best deal on the market (unless your landlord is cool with a boatload of $250 checks from Plastiq – no question that is a better deal)

If you’re not already registered with Roomi, here’s what you need to do *before* using the MilesTalk 1.9% link:

Here’s how to register:
1. Go to or download the Roomi app and sign-up
2. Once logged in, go to your profile
3. Click on “Get Verified.”
Then you can follow this link to make your 1.9% payment.
Why use this deal?
1) To meet minimum spend for a signup bonus on a new card.
2) To use a card that gives you 2% cashback or more and make a profit.
Why not use this deal?
1) If you can’t get your landlord’s ACH info
2) If you have a way to get a lower rate. i.e. perhaps you have a bunch of Fee Free Dollars with Plastiq.

Will you pay your rent for a 1.9% fee? Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.
