1. For bill payees not in the list, can we conduct EFTs from our CTFS credit card account (specifically OMC)?

I know "Canadian Tire Bank" has a financial institution number of 338 (source: https://support.kraken.com/hc/en-us/art ... on-Numbers ), but I would also need a branch number for an EFT. This site (http://canada-banks-info.com/routing-nu ... g-numbers/ ) seems to indicate there is at least five branch numbers. I assume the account number would be our credit card number. I tried calling CTFS support but the rep was clueless about bill payments and implied they are treated like any other credit card payment (i.e. would be charged applicable credit card fees by utilities, etc.)

2. Also, on the note of finding bill payees in the list, has anyone had success with EnerCare Connections (electricity for apartment buildings)?

Last year I've called/email and after a long debate managed to add SAAQ Car Registration and Driver's Licence. I just cannot find them now. Why would they remove them?

They were there as:
SAAQ-DRIVERS LICENCE
SAAQ-REGISTRATION

Your EFT payment, if it is allowed by CTFS, would be considered cash advance, just like writing a balance transfer cheque to pay.

Thanks. Would such a hypothetical EFT be eligible for earning eCTM rewards?

No way you're going to be able to do an EFT of any kind, and have it go to your CT credit card, let alone get cash back for it.
The branch numbers that you came across are likely related to the TFSA and other savings accounts they offer.

This is an interesting find for those that reside in BC.
I have to admit, I'm a tad jealous!

I know I got a letter in the mail from ctfs. Maybe their way of doing a promo. Pcf is doing a contest card promo.

I didn't realize it was open to all bc residents only. The link they gave me was this https://www.ctfs.com/content/ctfs/en/of ... llect.html and it didn't have it listed.

Two separate promos I suppose.
The link I posted clearly says BC residents only at the top of the page, and yours doesn't.
Interesting.
I wonder if they're testing the waters before deciding to introduce the new credit card?

They were there as:
SAAQ-DRIVERS LICENCE
SAAQ-REGISTRATION
They were there as recently as this past June 2017 (ref @MoneyHypeMike ) :
SAAQ-REGISTRATION 90051198
SAAQ DRIVERS LICENCE 90051198

Looked like a duplicate payee, based on the same number. Maybe CTFS was cleaning up things and failed to re-add it back in? Call and ask?

When did you get your letter? Was it recent?

I have been bugging them for weeks now to get my account set up with this promo (I live in BC)...escalated it to the complaints department today. Apparently, it is an 'opt-in' type of program, either electronically (offered in July and August) or via a letter, which you have received.

Just trying to figure out how to get involved...and why I haven't been offered the promo yet.

Cheers!

The past few months, I’ve noticed them offering 40x CT money (16% return) for new card members only, but I believe it’s for your first CT store purchase, and only when you apply and get approved in store.

The cash back rewards tiers on the CTFS Cash Advantage card reset at the anniversary year and not the calendar year right?
