Can I pay my Visa with my MasterCard?

There are some ways to pull this off, none of which get an enthusiastic recommendation from me.

I thought about this today when I looked at my PayPal line of credit, which is more or less separate from my regular PayPal account. And by "separate" I mean that they didn't provide an option to make payments on that line of credit using PayPal. Not that this is a problem, particularly: General Electric, not PayPal itself, runs the lines of credit, and when did GE ever take PayPal? Still, it looked funny, especially since I have more than enough in my PayPal account to pay off the entire amount due.

PayPal also has a debit card, which I'd just as soon avoid. I have no idea if GE will take the debit card.
