Paying bills with cumulus mastercard

Hi all,

Would like to ask simple question as shown in the title..

How can we pay e.g. paper bills (health insurance, apartment) with the cumulus mastercard?

We would like to use that cashback and since these are large amount of money paid, is there an option to pay with aforementioned mastercard?

Thank you in advance for answers or any help

It's a credit card isn't it, so those would have to be charged to the card itself. Don't think that's possible for the things you're wanting to use it for.

Re: Paying bills with cumulus mastercard

It really depends on the retailer. They are the ones that have to pay a fee to the credit card company, some of which goes to fund your ‘cashback’.

As most people pay cash at the post office, or use a bank transfer I cannot see an incentive for these business to use credit cards.

Indeed. I don’t think it’s possible to pay a bill with a credit card in CH

Salt offers the option to pay their bills by credit card but I’ve never tried it and not seen the option anywhere else although I’ve never really looked for it either.

There may be a way to link the card to TWINT and pay your bills via that but I’m not really sure about that.
