Google Wallet is now allowing you to make person-to-person payments via Gmail using your credit card with no fees for a limited time.
Important Update (6/6/2013): Google Wallet has now implemented a $250 maximum limit on the amount of funds you can send via Gmail using a credit card with no fees during the promotional period, plus this offer is now set to expire altogether on June 29, 2013. Learn More about these updates.
This is an awesome way to earn Credit Card Miles and rewards by sending your friends money via Gmail, and then having them return the favor.
I first saw this offer announced on Dan’s Deals, where it was posted by a forum user, and now it is spreading like wildfire across the reward churning community.
In order to participate, you will either need to be one of the lucky few Google Wallet users to receive access to this offer directly, or you will need to receive a Gmail payment from another user who has access to the program already.
How To Get Access To This Offer
I will be more than happy to send you a penny in order to give you access, so just leave a comment below with your Gmail address if you want to receive a penny.
You must have Gmail and either be a Google Wallet user or sign up for Google Wallet to accept your payment.
Once you have access, you can send payments via Gmail using your credit card, and there are no fees for this service for a limited time.
No Fees for Google Wallet Person-To-Person Credit Card Payments
Normally, there will be a 2.9% service fee with a minimum fee of $0.30 to send payments using a credit card, but it is free during the promotional period.
However, there’s no telling how long it will be free, so you might want to take advantage of this offer soon if you want to earn some rewards from it.
Information You Need To Know
Of course, you’re not technically supposed to just send money to friends in order to earn miles, and it looks like Google Will Issue You a Warning and possibly deactivate your Wallet account if you blatantly send money only for this reason.
