    I would firstly tell friend to use it or sell it online, or I would offer to sell it for friend for £5 commission when it is sold.

    If they insisted on cash now, I would offer £90 for retailers I would normally use, £80 for retailers that I could use later as gifts, and at least £50 for the remainder which I would sell online.

    Ditto. If they were desperate for money (and a good friend) I'd help them anyway. If it was just a card they wouldn't ever use - I'd advise them to buy an item that they could immediately re-sell on eBay or sell it on eBay if they don't have an account.
