I know of some places in my area that will sell MOs. Problem is chase.
Any other quasi cash recommendations? Low fee tax payments?
might just overpay some bill and get refund later... Any big companies that allow that (USAA used to but can't today )

Thought about the Money order route but Chase doesn't give points for that right? Need to spend 3K in the next few days...
Answer is almost self-evident. You need 3K spend and you have an outstanding tuition payment. Do it! Note: 2.4% is not exactly 2.4% - you are earning at least 1% from the credit card. Plus you have free use of the money for a month [that benefit may be few pennies in interest ].
Also - what is the tuition amount? If substantially above 3K, may want to pay the amount above 3K with a different method.
