I have a tuition bill due in a few weeks. I was going to just pay from checking. However, I would like to pay w my BCE, which has a high enough cl. I would prob charge and pay it before Amex would even be able to report it on my CR.
does Amex frown on this? I dont think there are any fees that my school charges, and i'd get 1% back on it lol
Any one have experience? I certainly dont need to get myself a FR.
Don't see why, it's nothing funky, just a normal purchase.
Just confirm that the school really doesn't charge fees for credit card use (or particularly Amex use) and get the 1% off (is that your best reward though?). Wish my daughters institution accepted credit cards!

Not sure why they would FR over tuition payment. You should be just fine.

Well... I didnt see anywhere that they charge a fee when I went to the school's site to pretend I was going to make a payment lol
That's good. No credit cards accepted at all at my daughter's school, just check, ACH, or installment plan via ACH (for which they charge $75 instead of interest). Since the fee is ~ $60K per child per year, even a 1% rebate would be great!
