Are you referring to balance transfers or cash advances?


Starting Score: EQ 686 10/18/11, TU 689 10/25/11, EX 685 10/11 (Amex Pull)....these are all FICO scores
Current Score: EQ 702 10/24/11, TU 689, EX 685
Goal Score: 750+

Score Update: EQ: 743 (02/03/12) TU: 741 (Walmart 01/11/12), now 761 as of 01/27/12 (Walmart), EX: 741 (Amex 01/04/12)

its called a balance transfer, and usually involves a fee (usually 3-5 perecent) plus they automaticly start incuring interest at your current rate or possibly higher or sometimes lower depending on the card, also balance transfers usually don't earn any points. 


Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Zync NPSL, Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
Last APP 4/26//2014 no plans for new credit I think I have enough.

Oh I'm sorry I meant can I pay the balance with another CC to earn points on the other CC then pay that card with my debit card.

no, that would cut into the other cards balance transfer bonuses... i have never seen an option to use a card to pay a credit card bill...  you could use a paper check that comes with some cards to do it.. but they all have features included to make it worth while to the card company.

Sorry I am pretty sure that there are laws against credit card providers allowing payment via another credit card, other than balance transfers which are completely different and wheres there is usually a fee involved.
