Pay Canadian bills while in USA (CCs, etc)

I'm visiting the US (work reasons) on a visit visa but going to be here for about 2-3 months. I'm looking to pay my CC off (Canadian Tire options mastercard except my BofA account here doesn't list them as a payee. CTFS has said "send us a check", but it might take them about 30 days to clear it. I want the payment to be done fast. Is there any other way to make a payment to them? (Any other ways to pay TELUS, DSL, etc.. would be appreciated as well) Thanks!

credit ratings across nations

I was born in the US, lived in Canada for ten years, and moved back to the States last year. While I was in Canada, I built up a solid credit rating- I had two credit cards, an unsecured line of credit with low interest (7%) and overdraft protection on my checking account up to $3,500. At one point when I was underemployed I built up some credit card debt, but I payed it off. Last year, when I moved back to the US for grad school, I got into a bad pattern of leaning on my credit cards and low-interest line of credit to pay for moving and start up expenses. This June, the world financial collapse coincided with one of my own- I was employed super part time, was making around $750 a month and was struggling to pay rent and buy $20 worth of groceries a week. I just couldn't pay my debt, and I paid very minimally, then not at all. I know I probably should have called the bank and tried to work something out, but what can I say- I panicked and froze. Currently, my total debt load is $14,000 on the line of credit, $3,700 on the overdraft and $1,400 on my Visa. [more inside]
