Credit Card with Rewards for Utilities???

Is there a credit card out there that gives either cash back or points for paying utilities with it?  Are the just for specific utility companies or for any?  I'd love to have a rewards card for my cable/internet/phone bundle (Hargray), my electric (Palmetto Electric), my water (Hilton Head PSD) and my garbage/recyling (Republic Services).

 

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Credit Card with Rewards for Utilities???

Its kinda crazy you asked because i was just looking at Barclay Rewards Master Card and noticed its 2 points per dollar on utilities which ive never seen. So yeah Barclays Rewards does utilities.

US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature Card gives 5% cash back by psying utilities (electric bill, insurance etc.) and Amex Hilton HHonors gives you 3 points/$1 to pay cable, wireless.

Re: Credit Card with Rewards for Utilities???

becareful most electric and gas companies have "convience fees" tacked on when you pay with a card. 

 

Cable, Cellphone, Satelite  companies take cards with no fees, and Amex Zync offers 2pts/$1 with the connect pack

 

Most insuracne companies handle cards just fine.

We need to create a sticky on reward categories much like we should for secured cards for this forum.

 

Will be a PITA to keep updated, but this is the sort of information that would be enormously helpful in a tabular format... on the assumption someone out on the web hasn't done it previously.... which admittedly has probably happened but I've never stumbled across it yet.

I pay phone (verizon) and water bills with Amex points. I spend on amex specifically to build points to do so. Amex points are also the grt to buy Amazon items. Bought a Primo ceramic grill with points.
