"I have never used a credit card of any sort in SL and I recently got a prepaid gift card. I'm wondering if there's a way to use it to buy Lindens"

Most pre-paid cards are not supported by Linden Lab and will not work.  Pre-paids such as Visa are not accepted as payment methods but some suggest if you tie them to your Paypal account it's a successful workaround... you'd have to contact Paypal and they'll tell you how.

As far as i know Mastercard VanillaCards (also prepaid, available in $25, $50 or $100 denominations) are the only pre-paid cards that are accepted as a payment method although they too are unsupported by LL.

There is no wiki or reference-work that lists this info - you'd have to contact Billing but that's as easy as a phone call.
