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!


ouch... way harsh... they could at least help out with some reward points! :smileytongue:

[ Edited ]

To be fair, when both daughters were there (one year overlap), the school did give 4K in loans and financial aid off the $120K..  Which was indeed better than nothing, but only slightly!

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.

I would do it.  But I think that most schools charge for CC.  It might not say on the site, but I bet if you went to the bursar's office they would tell you.

 

What school do you go to?  Do you go to a school in one of those states that forbid CC surcharges?
