My employer, an NPR affiliate, gave me a $50.00 prepaid Visa card as part of my holiday bonus.  Can I use this card to buy PBS book credits?  My name does not appear on the card so I am thinking I can't use this card to purchase credits.

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I just used one about a month ago, and it worked fine. For name, I just typed in "gift card" or whatever generic-type thing was printed on the card.
