Default Mastercard gift cards

I received Mastercard gift cards for winning a drawing locally about 2-3 weeks ago. Is there a way to convert them into cash? I tried Square and paying myself and they don't allow that.

I tried an ATM but these don't have PIN numbers so that didn't work. I tried a cash advance at my bank and they don't allow that either.

It is a larger sum of money than just a regular gift card/cards and hence the reason I would prefer to convert to cash and use on a trip and other items etc.

Any thoughts?

The only way I've ever converted to cash is by selling them to someone for cash for a lower amount than they were worth.

If anybody is interested I would sell them for $950 each. If you know you are buying something for $1000+ its a good way to save $50 right off the top.

thanks!

Free 50 bucks! I think you'll be likely to sell them if you post them to facebook market place. You can then weed out the riff raff. We don't get enough traffic through here for you to likely sell many.

Neither site will buy a mastercard gift card. It appears as cardcash and cardpool only buy store brand gift cards.

ouch!
I got square to accept 3 of them in my wife's name. They only took about $35 out of each to process and pay me in 1 day.

I am going to try 3 more next week...!
