Paying Rent with a Credit Card? That’s Priceless

Paying rent with a credit card: that's priceless!

For most of us in New York City, the start of every month sees us either writing a check or withdrawing cash from the nearest ATM to pay our apartment rent. While this is a routine we have all got accustomed to, wouldn’t it be great if we could pay our rent using our credit cards instead? Think of the benefits involved—besides the relative ease and comfort in paying with plastic, we would also be able to rake up a whole lot of credit card reward points!

So, if you’re looking to rent in the city, and you’d also like to better your credit score, then consider moving into an apartment that allows you to pay rent using your credit card. Brick Underground has released a list of buildings in the city where you can pay both your rent and your security deposit using your credit card—a bonus feature is that these buildings are no-fee apartments! We picked out the best buildings from that list—check them out below:
