Plastiq No Longer Earning 3x on Rent/Mortgage with CSR
Plastiq has been coding as Lodgings and triggering the Travel category bonus on most Visa cards, including 3x on CSR, since April. Unfortunately, this appears to have died on June 3.
Let us know if you have data points on CIP or other Visa cards in the comments. (Please let us know if you previously had success and it changed or if this is your first attempt.)
I’ve reached out to our Plastiq contact to find out if anything changed on their end, which is really the question here. Did something change on the Plastiq backend which would then result in no cards considering Plastiq to be Travel any longer? Or did Chase recode something on their end in which case it’s possible they only changed CSR and likely CSP, not CIP. And then the Travel coding could still work for other Visa cards (BofA & Cap1).
In any case, there’s a good chance that AT&T is not affected by this change. Note, ATT has always been highly YMMV so do a small test first.
We’ll update our review of Plastiq when we clarify the issue.
