This is a great deal…

If you don’t yet have a Plastiq account, you can get 5,000 Fee-Free Dollars (FFDs) as long as you sign up as a Business user (click Business as the purpose when creating the account) and make $10,000 worth of payments in before August 31st.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

This means you will be able to make $5,000 worth of payments fee-free once those FFDs post to your account on Aug 31st.

This is worth $125.  (Standard fee of 2.5% X $5,000)

To qualify for this offer, you have to use this link (or someone else’s targeted for the promo):


Only certain Plastiq users are targeted to refer for this promo. So certainly I’m not the only one, but you can’t just use anyone’s referral for this promo. They have to have been targeted for the “Business Referral Promotion.”  Referees receive bonus FFDs as well.


If you aren’t sure why you should be using Plastiq to make all business payments that you currently pay by check, read my post: How I earn 2%+ on Business Check Payments.

If you go for this deal, please also get in touch with me so I can make sure you get your FFDs. You can email me here or via the Facebook group, etc.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
