Paying Rent with a Credit Card for points/miles

We've always paid my apartment rent via a check, but management recently is now accepting electronic money transfers. They gave me their bank info, and they said we can use my bank's bill pay, and then my bank will mail them a physical check.

At this point, they don't accept Venmo or other apps. I used to have an Amex redbird, but other than that, I'm out of practice. I don't mind paying a percentage as long as I can earn. Are there checking accounts I can fund with a CC? Or something like that which would work in my situation? Maybe direct me to the right forum if this isn't the specific place to ask?

Thank you!

Confused. You don't need their bank information to have a payment service send a paper check, just their mailing address.

Have you looked at this thread, to start?
