sfchris said: Why not use one of those balance transfer type of checks? Op is not interested so much in paying rent with CC as he is in meeting the minimum spend. I dont know specifically about the Chase Sapphire Reserve card but usually BT (either with check or online or over phone) does not count towards purchase requirement.
you can open an account at cnsumers credit union can fund up to 1k with credit card. after first account is opened (savings) you can open sub accounts like checking etc but you must open each account one at a time as the limit is 1k per account opening session
Can you pay rent with debit for less than credit? Get some $500 VGCs. Debit fee is $3.95 per transaction on my rent, so I collect $496.05 on each card, which is more than 99% of the face value and more than 98% of the face value plus activation fee.

Posted in the other thread: I paid rent early to fill my $4K spend on CSR, but RadPad did not code as travel. Only as "Online, Mail, or Telephone transaction". Took a small loss, but closer to fulfilling my spend requirement.
I also heard about Radpad promotion using an Android for paying a rental fee. However, I think, the promo has ended already and they also added an interest of 2.5 %. Anyway, the advantage of using a credit card is you don't pay the rent by a spot cash.
without hijacking in too different a direction, the usual suspects to meet spending include seeing which utilities accept CC and pay them (in fact pay ahead), and buy gift cards to places you shop anyway, all of those cost nothing and you'll earn the points on them.
