RewardsPay

RewardsPay is a consumer payment service that enables consumers to use credit card rewards points, cash rewards, hotel points or frequent flier airline miles to safely and securely pay for goods and services at merchant websites. We work directly with airline, hotel, and credit card rewards programs so consumers can safely use their cash rewards, miles, or points at leading merchants. With RewardsPay, consumers can tap into the liquidity of their rewards programs to purchase music, movies, e-books, games or just about any other type of goods or services at the growing number of merchants that are part of the RewardsPay network. Rewards programs are front and center and maintain a direct relationship with their members, merchants benefit from increased basket size and conversion, and consumers increase their purchasing power. RewardsPay is not a wallet, currency exchange, or attempting to create a new type of virtual currency. Our team has decades of combined experience in alternative payments, loyalty and rewards, travel payments, games, and social media.

Coinbase workaround lets you pay with Bitcoin on Facebook and iTunes

Bitcoin wallet Coinbase has figured out a workaround to help its users make purchases on Facebook and iTunes with Bitcoin. With the new Coinbase-Rewards-Pay partnership, you can link your Coinbase wallet to a RewardsPay account to make purchases at iTunes, Facebook, GrooveShark, and eight other online merchants with Bitcoin. RewardsPay is a payment platform that lets users put to use the cash rewards they’ve earned from credit cards and other loyalty programs. In order for Coinbase to grow as a company, it’s going to have to get people to spend their coins. While merchants are increasingly considering the asset, only a limited number of businesses currently accept Bitcoin.
