Amazon Giftcard Balance how to cash it out...

motelguy123 4 10 October 12, 2016 at 05:16 AM More Amazon Deals
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to unload my amazon gift card balance. Every month at work we earn between a $25-100 amazon gift card for our performance. I have been hitting the mark for most part of the year and have built up a decent balance but I really don't need anything from amazon. Anyone have an ideas on what can be bought and resold etc quickly or anyone offering an trade in for cash type deals. Figured some SDer will have some knowledge on this.

Thanks in advance.

You could sell on ebay but Amazon sells everything. Including food items.

Can a gift card balance be applied to Prime membership?

Edit: Looks like this might be possible by gifting Prime

Just spend it on groceries, cleaning supplies or something else you buy anyway. It is not hard to find something to spend on at Amazon. Whether it is the absolute best price (usually not these days) is another matter as is their now ridiculous $49 to ship free requirement (they want to gouge\sucker you out of $100 for Prime any way they can lol), but if one is in a rush to spend the amount, it really should not be difficult to find something you need\would buy anyway. My 2 cents.

Are you looking to cash it out for cash specifically? Or would you be OK with switching it to say an offline retailer like a Best Buy or some other chain like that?

I ask because you could always find 'flips' in the video game section on Amazon, buy them and then trade them into Best Buy and such to transfer the credit there.

Not to mention the fact that Gamestop currently is offering the same trade value whether you take cash or credit. So if you find decent flips to there you could cash out for cash by doing the same thing I mentioned above.

Actually a great idea. I will look into this and report back what I can find out.
