If the card has a magnetic stripe then yes you can copy the information onto another card and use the other card. Either the copied card or original card will probably only work once though since the card serial number is usually stored in a central database and the balance is looked up, the balance is not normally stored on the card.

This method still works on other systems though such as photo copy cards at most universities etc.

We would not recommend you attempt to do this though since it is totally illegal.
