Is there an easy and effective way to buy a disposable credit card number online?

Short story is I want to get a subscription to NewspaperArchive.com but apparently it's one of those companies that is unresponsive
about cancelling. I refuse to give my credit card info out to dirtball companies that do that. Sadly their product is good and has no competition, and my local library's database offerings for pre-1995 newspapers is rubbish.
I'd like to use my credit card with a trusted merchant to put $38 on a disposable credit card and give that to NewspaperArchive, so that if I decide not to continue the subscription the auto-rebill will get rejected.
What's a good way to do this without signing up for credit cards or with megabanks? Is there an online Paypal-type operation that would give me some disposable Visa or MC numbers for a small fee? And do problems ever arise when they validate the card? (such as address verification not being valid on a disposable card)
