Generally, no. The use of a credit card is also used as a credit check to confirm the consumers credit risk.

This is weird considering I’ve upgraded my phone every year (paying off the device balance ) with it thru Telus for 5 straight years

I would say, give it a try.  Each account is different, but I have upgraded my phone using my debit card through the Telus site before, but I did it while signed into my account.  It has been a while though since I have used the online system to upgrade a phone though.  My 2 S9 Plus devices were both done in-store, so it was more than likely around a couple of years ago.
