Debit Cards

Review: RadPad

This post has been updated with new information.  Please read this, and then check out the new post here.


RadPad essentially offers to pay your rent using a card.  Debit or credit, and they process the payment and then mail the check for you.  It is easy to use, but not a good idea for everyone.  They charge a 3% fee on credit card transactions, which makes it hard to justify for normal spending.  Think about it, do you want to spend an extra $3 for every $100 worth of rent?  Bills are tough enough as is!  However, in a few circumstances, RadPad can be a great tool to earn special card perks, or to meet a tough minimum spend on a new card.
