pre paid credit card and paypal question

    just bought a new Skoda and they give you £500 of free fuel in the way of a pre loaded MasterCard in my name for £500
    it states I can spend it anywhere that accepts MasterCard but not pay at pump

    could I add it to my PayPal account and order some stuff of eBay not to withdraw cash
    here's a few excerpts from the t&c

    4.2 When using the Card at certain merchants, including hotels and restaurants, an additional amount may be held to cover tips/gratuities, temporarily reducing the Available Balance available on the Card. This is to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover the final cost of the Transaction and to reduce the risk of a negative balance arising on the Card.

Only the actual amount of the final bill agreed between You and the merchant will be deducted from the Card.

    Don't see why not. I'm sure PayPal will let you know if it's not acceptable.
