    Is there a way to convert electronic Amazon gift cards to cash (or use them to buy gasoline)?

    great question--I have always wanted to convert bonuses from M-turk to cash and deposit in bank account. How do I do that? I can't get something on Amazon for 50 cents. I can't accumulate gift cards before they expire--and put them together be/c they expire too fast.

    I thought that Amazon gift cards never expired? Maybe I'm missing something.

    When you receive the gift card, is that where you see an expiration date? You need to apply it to your Amazon Gift Card balance right away. It will never expire once it is applied to your Amazon account. Then you can accumulate them and let them sit until you are ready to buy something.

    Ah, I misunderstood the meaning of gift card. When I cash out from mTurk, it goes straight into my Amazon Gift Card balance. That is what I was thinking of as gift card. Otherwise, I dunno.
