Amazon £50 voucher - what to do with it?

Hi,

A guy I helped out with somthing earlier this year has sent me a £50 Amazon voucher as a thank you. Now I didn't expect this, so it's a nice suprise. However, there's nothing really I want from Amazon, and I was wondering if there was any way of turning this into cash. The only thing I could think of was buying CDs to Ebay, but the prices would mean I'd loose a lot of my money.

Any other ideas guys?

  • Sell the voucher on ebay? Vouchers can go for a good price apparently - close to the face value. It would be a lot less hassle as well!

    Could you ebay the Amazon voucher?

    Or save it and use it for next year's christmas presents?

    I'd rather get cash for it than save it, I hardly buy and Christmas presents anyway. I've just had a look on Ebay and seen £50 vouchers going for over £49. Not sure why a buyer would go to that hassel just to save a few pence, but hey, after Paypal/Ebay fees I should come out with a reasonable amount, for nothing, so that's what I'll do!

    personally Id save it, and use it for wedding/christening/birthday/ mothers/fathers day/valentines whatever day.

    reduce your "put away for presents" money accordingly, then voila you have 50 quid to pay off debt with!

    He sells lots of designer shoe horns! I wonder if they are cheaper on Amazon :rotfl:

    sometimes he only saves 30p - 9p why take the risk is what I have to ask?

    Don't tell me there's no risk, there's always risk with ebay.

    I guess if they have the money in their Paypal account, and want somthing from Amazon, this is a good way to avoid Paypal fees. Or maybe they don't have a credit card so this is the only way they can buy on Amazon?
