"This account is not eligible for online payment" when trying to make an online payment?

I currently have a small credit balance on my account. But I want to make a payment on my account using one of those Visa rebate cards that will expire soon. When I go to make a payment on the web site, the page shows a note "This account is not eligible for online payment." and the payment fields are all greyed out. Is this expected if there's a credit balance? I'm surprised that AT&T doesn't want to accept my payment. Do I need to just wait until the next bill is generated so that the credit balance is used up and turns my balance negative?

If there is a credit balance, the website will not accept a payment of any type, so I apologize about the inconvenience. If you do want to make a payment when you have a credit balance, you can try the automated phone system or make a payment with a rep.
