Since your question has already been answered... I'm wondering why your Paypal purchase showed up as a cash advance. I just checked mine, and they show up as purchases.

When you use Paypal to send money to someone, it asks you for the "TYPE" of payment you want to send. There are 4 options I believe, 3 of them refer to "services" and "goods" (i.e. for auctions, etc.) and the 4th is called "QUASI-CASH".

In any event - it turns out if you choose quasi-cash, it gets put in as a cash advance. If you click the little question mark next to the TYPE box, this fact is documented. I obviously neglected to read the fine print when I first started using Paypal back in 2000.
