Once you have created your account, you can add your credit card or bank account details.
Currently there is a promotion where you can get a bonus of $10 credit after you pay your first bill of atleast $25 using my referral code PTM1792386.
While signing up, I encountered some issues when adding my Amex credit card. It constantly gave me errors and then finally it said I have reached my limit and I need to contact Customer Support. Note Customer Support was by email only from within the app. However, later I realized my Amex was added to my profile multiple times and it appears I had reached the max limit of credit cards I can have on my profile. I was able to delete the duplicate entries and finally pay by bill.
So, go ahead! Instead of paying your bills from your bank account, rack up points using your credit card for free flights by making payments that you normally would anyway.
Dont forget to use promo code PTM1792386 to get a $10 credit after you pay your first bill of atleast $25.
