Many of the U.S. retailers on those portals do ship to Canada or you can always utilize a U.S. address forward service like like Stackry (this referral link will give you and us $10 towards the next shipment) or Reship (Use our referral code 442I141PA to save $10 on your first service with Reship, we will also receive $10) to have your U.S. only shipments sent to and then forwarded to Canada. Remember as well to utilize a No Foreign Transaction fee credit card on those purchases to save you 2.5% on average over other credit cards.

PaySimply has added several more categories of payment options where you can use your credit card to pay for bills/merchants that don't typically take credit cards. Those categories are rent and childcare costs (i.e. dayare tuition) plus private school tuition. PaySimply charges a 2.5% fee so for more rewards cards this isn't rewarding as your fee is more than the rewards you earn except for cards that can provide an outsized value such as Aeroplan or Marriott cards. Visit PaySimply to learn more.
