    That might prove tricky as it is quite difficult to work out how much is left on the card. And how could the buyer be certain that the card wouldn't be reported as stolen? There's no way I would buy a gift card second hand, except from someone I know really well.

    OP, what stops you from spending your 100 in M&S, in shops or online? If, for instance, you buy food with it, you have 100 spare that you would have spent on food.

    There is Zeek but you are still going to lose out.

    As already suggested, spend it on food as that's what I did with most of mine.
