    Is there anyway to turn a giftcard, i have an american express one with 50 credit, into cash.

    I know i cant do cash back.

    Is there like a debit card i can buy a prepaid one that i can then take out cash with?

    Any ideas?

    You can sell your giftcard on certain websites which cater to that. You won't get the face value, but you'll get a relatively decent amount of $$$. Do a google search for "sell my giftcard" or something like that.

    You can also try to sell it on Craigslist. That's kinda sketchy though.

    You could sell it to someone at a discounted price.

    pain in the ass..but you can call AmEx, have them send you a gift check and they'll invalidate the gift card - then deposit it in your bank account...and then you can withdraw the cash.

    Will it work in an ATM? Cash back at transaction? If not, buy a Visa prepay and use it at an ATM.

    they did :2thumbsup:


    The walmart return thing wouldnt work, as you would get a walmart gift card in return as recipt would indicate how it was purchased i would think.

    No, if you have a receipt you get cash back when you return stuff at Wal-Mart. They give you gift cards if you don't have a receipt.

    For the next person- Paypal. Put it in the account, withdraw the check/transfer to bank, get cash more easily.
