3 way light switch

Is it okay to use a 3 way light switch for a normal light setup (controlled by 1 switch)? I had the switches sitting around and ran out of regular switches. I guess I didn't want to spend 3 bucks for gas to run back up to Home Depot for an .89 cent switch.

I turned the unused screws in on the side of the switch and the switch seems to work okay.
