If these are the generic reward debit cards, you can also get an Amazon gift card to apply to your account in the exact amount left on the card. If you have multiple cards with small amounts that can add up.

Exactly what I do.

If Florida is like California, you can cash out any gift card that has less than $10 at the retailer to which it's designated.

Originally posted by RichardC: Good ideas, thanks guys. Do the gas stations have to process these cards manually at the desk, not at the pump?
Yes, because the way they work is the pumps pre-authorize $75 or a similar amount that they're programmed to automatically shut off at,then when the sale is completed they charge your credit card the actual amount, so the card you have will just decline at the pump.

What he said lol.
I'm a travelling RN so I get around a lot plus I get $145 per day Mon-Fri per diem that goes onto the company Visa. What I don't use I lose so at the end of the day, after I've paid for gas and lunch I get the remainder on 2 pre paid cards, half on gas cards the other half on a Visa card. I've got tons of gas cards that don't expire, and as for the Visa cards, they are used to maintain my dedicated work vehicle, pay for insurance, tires and whatever maintenance is due. Good thing is, at the end of the year expenses are 100% deductable as this car is used solely for work.
When I get a card that's in the under $1 to under $4 range, I'll bundle them together and buy me something at Target or Walmart. They've learned to dread my arrival at the end of the month lol.
