Pay Your Bills Online Using CANADIAN TIRE MASTER CARD & Earn Cash Back/CT $$$ !!!
YMMV but so far I am able to pay all my usual bills like Property Taxes, Enbridge Gas, Hydro One, Water/Sewer Bill, etc. & most importantly MBNA MC!
This will add up to a lot of CT $$$ especially from property taxes & MBNA MC
****EDIT March 3, 2015: MBNA & ALL other Credit Card bill payments NO longer work on this card****
Thanks a_1_a for pointing it out

UPDATE: Some Fortis BC customers have attempted to pay their bills using "Fortis BC" as the payee and it hasn't worked,
because for whatever reason it requires an 11-digit number whereas Fortis account numbers have only 6 or 7 digits.
However, paying their Fortis bills using "Terasen Gas" as the payee has worked (Fortis acquired Terasen back in 2007)

I've posted the following before in the past, and have updated it now with the 0.8% rebate on the Options card (no longer 1%). It's info for people who are thinking of applying for a card, but not sure if they should get the Options vs Cash Advantage.
1. The no-fee CT MC credit cards are: Options, Cash Advantage (sorry, not familiar with the Gas Advantage).
2. Use the card to pay bills which you cannot otherwise charge to other higher-earning credit cards (tuition, property taxes, some utilities like gas, water, electricity).
3a. For the Cash Advantage MC, you get a credit to the card account on anniversary date, and earns:
0.25% on first $1500 = $3.75 *
0.50% on next $1500 = $7.50 *
1% on amounts $3K - $24K
1.5% on amounts above $24K
(earn double these rates at CT or Marks WW stores)
3b. For the Options MC, it's 0.8% (4% at CT or Marks WW stores) in CT money, and not tiered like above for Cash Advantage, so this is a better card for you if you shop at Cdn Tire regularly and don't anticipate on spending more than $9,500* annually.
*Example with $9500 non-CT annual spending:
Options -> $9,500 x 0.8% = $76
CashAdv -> (First $3000 tiered = $11.25) + (Next 6,500 x 1% = $65) = $9500 at $76.25
4. If you plan to shop a lot at Canadian Tire, then the Options Card is probably a better choice, vs the Cash Advantage.
5. You need to see if your property taxes, utilities, university tuition, etc., is in the payees list (see link to Google doc in the OP), and whether or not you can pay with a different higher earning credit card, WITHOUT surcharges tacked on top.
6.Ottawa property taxes are NOT included. Toronto, Markham, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Windsor, London, Niagara Falls, Montreal and Halifax ARE.
There are some nearby cities/towns in the GTA which ARE listed. See this post:
