Best way to exchange Lifestyle Vouchers for cash?

Options
I have £895 in Lifestyle Vouchers (which can be spent on almost anything - there's a full list of companies online), and I'm looking to find a way I can exchange that money for cash. The reason is that I'm looking to spend the money on an engagement ring with a company not listed on the site. 

I've thought about buying an iPhone 11 256gb from Argos (RRP £879) and selling it to someone for £800, but I've posted about it on Facebook Marketplace and received no offers.

I understand there are sites where you can swap directly for cash, however the rates they charge almost don't make it worth the exchange (we're talking losing about £200 realistically).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do about this? I'm comfortable with exchanging £800 for £895 which I think is pretty fair - it's basically 10% interest on your exchange.

Thanks
