Take them to your bank and have them do a cash advance for the balance on the card.
cash advance is not allowed on these cards (maybe it is on some them but not mine).

Thanks for info. It charges 3%, am I right? Also it is a service only on mobile phones (and only Androids or iPhones).
no charges, i just add the gift card balance instantly to my account and do a transfer to bank account

you can send it to someone else who has an Amazon payments account, ex: your wife, and then she can have the money deposited in a checking account with no fees involved
They ask for SS# when signing up. I wonder if they do a credit hard pull.

You may be able to "add card" to a Paypal account.
