Pay bills with a credit card?

What are the potential downsides to using a credit card to pay my monthly bills, assuming I pay off the balance every month?

I currently pay all my bills straight out of my checking account (insurance, utilities, car payments, mortgage, etc.) and have recently thought about getting a credit card with some kind of rewards (thinking about airmiles) to use to make all of these payments. I won't be carrying a balance on the card, I just want to try and get something back from all my bills.
What are some things to be careful for if I decide to go this route. Are there hidden dangers to doing this that I'm not seeing?
