We saw similar deals in the past. Those were for a lower fee of just 1%, but this deal is better since it allows the use of any credit card (not limited to Mastercard), and it allows payment to existing payees (not limited to new recipients), and you can do the payments as you wish, with or without scheduling it.
Reader Ted notes that you have to click through the link in the email in order to get the 1.5% rate; otherwise, it’ll show the regular 2.5% rate.
