I have several One4All gift cards with various balances but together total over £100. 

Anyone know of any handy ways to spend odd amounts easily? Online they work as prepaid visa card but only in a very limited number of shops, so spending an odd amount is tricky as you can't do part payment. I don't live close to many places they can be used in-store except WHSmith. 

Just wondered if I was missing anything.

    In store at Argos, B&Q, Boots ....... the list goes on.  I think you may have misunderstood the symbol on the website, those with a high street presence that are on line only have "spend online" in the red arrow box, the rest are in store and on line.  You will need to know the value of each card though to pay over several cards.

    Yes, I know how the cards work in store. My issue is not being local to the vast majority of the stores that accept them so wondered if there was some clever online option. I have mostly used the cards online at Argos and John Lewis but you cannot easily use up odd amounts like that.

    I have finally solved my own problem. If you have a small odd amount left on a One4All gift card you can turn it into an evoucher for certain retailers on their swap website  https://swap.one4all.com

    All my oddments have been turned into John Lewis e-vouchers so I now have 24 months to spend them. There were going to expire in a few months.

    Also useful if you need to use it for part payment online. As it is processed like a debit card online, the One4All gift card cannot usually be used for part payment online, but retailers will allow any number of their own vouchers to be used along with a payment card for the balance.
