I won a $500 visa card at work, I want to pay off a tv I bought at best buy recently on my best buy card. Does anyone know if I can use a visa gift card to pay a credit card?

Haha... most likely not.

Why don't you call the phone number on the gift card and ask if there is some sort of balance transfer.

If not, get a paypal account. Charge the gift card to your paypal account. Transfer the money to your bank account.

You'll probably lose about 3% from the transaction.

I may just use the gift card to pay other bills and use the bill money to pay off the tv, I figured it was just easier to pay off the tv with the gift card.

the gift card is most likely a regular pre-paid debit card. we sell these at the mall that my Target is in. give it a shot.
