There's an alternative that's even better. But I'm not aware of any places where you can buy a money order with a credit card. The processing fees on cards would outweigh the costs of the money order, typically 2% to 4% of the transaction.
An alternative (though check with the CC company if it's allowed) is to use the credit card to send money to a friend or family member's Paypal account. They could then use their Paypal debit card to withdraw the cash at an ATM or transfer the money to their bank account and withdraw it that way (and of course you can then take that cash and buy a money order with it). If you go this route it might be a good idea to apply for 0 APR credit card so you can save on interest charges.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
