    The social media staff "couldn’t pay for this type of PR with a million prepaid Mastercards." That means "even if the staff had a million prepaid Mastercards, they still wouldn't be able to buy this kind of PR." The PR they got from the tweet is better than the PR they would be able to get if they had a million prepaid Mastercards.

    You'll need to look at the context to find out why "a million prepaid Mastercards" is relevant in this particular situation.

    This was part of a contest. 100 prepaid Mastercards worth $5000 each were among the prizes of the contest. The tweet was worth more to the company in terms of public relations than holding a contest in which 1,000,000 prepaid Mastercards were given away. It's obviously an exaggeration.

    So PR stands for "Public Relation" or "Public Response"?

    Also, "to buy this kind of PR" seems logical? Should it be "to pay to arouse"?
