Question: How to use up the amount in the newegg prepaid rebate credit cards...

pug_ster 1,962 326 May 2, 2013 at 08:10 AM
Okay, dumb question. I've got prepaid cards as rebate over the years and the amount has always ends with "0", IE 10.00 so I have no problems using them filling money on my NYC metrocard. Now I am getting these amounts like $12.99, $17.99, which does not allow me to refill in that amount and such and I am trying to figure out how to spend them. Does anybody know how can I use up the amount buying stuff? Thanks.

You can do split transactions at Best Buy and get Amazon gift cards for them...

Do you have an online cell phone account or any bills you pay online? Use it towards those.

Thanks. I will probably buy gift cards from Target or even split transactions when buying stuff from them.

Somebody else already mentioned it, but when I get these, I log onto my cell phone bill, and use up the full card instantly.

Yes, at some older merchants like USPS you have to tell the associate the amount on the card, while on the modern ones like Staples the register knows the balance itself, so just slide a bunch. Easier than paying online bills where you have to enter all the numbers.

You can do split payments at Staples, Office Depot, Kohl's, Target, and Lowe's. I believe that the registers at each of those stores know how much is left on the rebate card and will then prompt you for another form of payment to pay the remaining balance. At Staples I've used up to 10 rebate cards on one purchase without any difficulty.

Besides Amazon e-gift cards, you can also order WalMart and Office Depot e-gift cards online.

If you have Comcast cable, you can make multiple payments (of any amounts) towards your monthly bill.

Verizon bill online works great. Also Kroger is tried and true for me.

Don't forget 3 free movies at Redbox BEFORE you use up the balance on your Newegg Rebate Cards!!

You can do that but they only come in whole dollar amounts.
