Splitting Payments between CC and PayPal?

I have a Visa giftcard with $25 on it and I also have some money in my PayPal account. I was going to order Looney Tunes Golden Collection from Overstock, since they have a good price on it and they accept PayPal. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to split the payment so $25 came off the giftcard and the balance out of Paypal.

Anyone done this before? Is there another Paypal-friendly store where this would work?

Well, you could just dump the balance into your PayPal account, no?

I wasn't sure if the order would bounce for "insuffient funds" if I tried using the Visa giftcard...

Are you saying I can transfer the funds from my Visa giftcard to Paypal? I only see the option to add funds from a checking or savings account....

OK, I think I found the answer to my own question. I added the Visa giftcard to my Paypal account, and made it my primary card. Now if I make the purchase using Paypal, it will empty my Paypal and take the rest from the giftcard. I'd perfer to have the balance on Paypal rather than the card, but I can deal with that.

Here's the info stright from Paypal's website:

Your credit card or debit card is charged only when you send money that is greater than the balance in your PayPal account. If your account has insufficient funds, or you wish to pay another way, you may use a credit or debit card or, if you have added a bank account, via eCheck or Instant Transfer.
