Good morning everyone, Evolve Money sent out an email update this morning regarding changes to their bill pay feature. In recent months, Evolve Money let you pay all bills with Discover credit cards (link), then a month later, Evolve Money
evolved changed and would only let you pay certain bills with a Discover credit card (link). Today, Evolve Money will let you pay any bill with a Discover credit card, but they added a 3% bill pay fee. In the process of checking out Evolve Money, I discovered that you could also add Visa and MasterCard credit cards and pay any bills, but the same 3% bill pay fee still applies.
I was able to add a Visa and MasterCard credit card to my account. Adding my PayPal Business Debit Card showed up as a credit card below.
Here is what paying your bill with a credit card will look like. A $999 bill payment will cost an extra $29.97 (3% of $999). Definitely not worth the price to use a Discover credit card.
I haven’t tried to use a Visa or MasterCard gift card lately, but I hope there is no fee to use those gift cards to pay bills on Evolve Money. The only reason I would pay the credit card bill pay fee on Evolve Money is if I were working toward a minimum spend on a Visa or MasterCard credit cards. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
