Technically, you can pay a store card with a credit card, but you will not be able to do this directly.
Your first option is to take out a cash advance from your credit card and pay your store credit card bill with the cash. This, however, might prove to be rather costly, as cash advances come with exorbitant fees and possibly a higher interest rate, which will start accruing immediately.
Your second option is to transfer the balance from the store card to another card that offers 0% APRs on balance transfers. Then you’ll be able to pay some or all of it off without accruing more interest. If you have excellent credit, there are several great offers on the market. However, make sure you pay attention to the length of the promotional offer and the balance transfer fee, to make sure it doesn’t cancel out whatever you save on interest.
