[Targeted] Plastiq: Pay $1,000+ With Bank Transfer & Get $10 Amazon Gift Card

Update 2/9/21: Check your emails, another round went out. I’ve only seen $10 reports this time, not $20.

Update 12/15/20: Check your emails, another round went out. Some are getting a lower $10 bonus.

The Offer

Plastiq is sending out an email offer to select users:

  • Send a payment of $1,000+ with your bank account as the payment method and get a $20 Amazon gift card.

Our Verdict

A bunch of people have gotten this offer. Paying a bill with your bank account is free, so this is an easy $20 moneymaker if you have a bill to pay and are comfortable giving your bank info. I’m not sure what Plastiq gains from having free payments sent, perhaps it makes them the hub of bill payments which they hope will spill into profitable payments too.

Please read our Plastiq review here.

I also received an email regarding this, but then found that fine print (or the lack thereof) required the recipient must be an “international vendor” to be eligible for the gift card.

The mention of “international vendor” appeared once and never again. Fortunately, knowing Plastiq’s sneaky behaviour, I captured a screenshot.

I suspect many people didn’t get their gift cards because of these sneaky behaviours.

Received a post card in the mail for “our gift to you: no fees on $1000 in payments” Says they’ll automatically deduct the fees for my next $1000 in payments.

Any card I try to any recipient still shows a fee. I don’t know why I let Plastiq draw me in every time like this.

Probably is 1k fee free dollars which you have to apply to a payment

Almost ignored this bc I thought that it was a plea to refer ppl, but it was actually an offer for 500 FFD. You donate to a charity of their choosing and they “match your donation with Fee-Free Dollars (FFDs) to apply towards future payments.”

It’s up to 500 FFD.
Offer expires this month.
I received the offer a few days ago. Chuck

Still haven’t gotten the gc from the Nov promo. CSRs seem to keep giving me the run around. Chatted yesterday and they said end of day. No gc in sight. Chatted today and rep said i’ll get it by the end of today. Not super hopeful at this point, but we shall see…

P2 got offer to pay 1K and get 125 in FFD. Might use it to meet min spend on Aspiration debit since it becomes 0 cost.

Make one payment of at least $1,000 and we’ll give you 125 FFDs.
We’ll total all your payments this month and give you 125 FFDs for every $1,000 in payments (i.e. make a total payment of $3,000 and you’ll get 375 FFDs).
There is no limit on the number of FFDs you can earn or the amount of fees you can offset.

I signed up for Plastiq with a promo where I get $1500 FFD for sending $5000. Do payments using bank account (which I believe is no fee) count towards $5000?

What is it about PPK and PQ? What exactly is the value add with that combo?
