I was recently given a Prezzy card by work. This has come at a great time for me as I am off to America in a week and the $200 loaded on the card will certainly be useful as spending money over there. However because of the exchange rate and fees that NZ Post charge I'm gonna end up losing quite a bit of money by using the card over in America. So I am just wondering if there is a way to get cash from the card. I'm certain that I can't go in to a bank and use the card to buy US dollars so I have ruled that out.

My only idea is to go to The Warehouse or similar, buy something with the prezzy card and return it hoping they'll be able to refund my purchase to another card. Would this work, or are they any other ways for me to get cash from the card? Also am I wrong in believing that I can't use the card at restaurants in the US? I believe they use the manual imprinting method as they charge your card initially before giving you a receipt where you can write the amount you want to tip on, so I assume that this the manual imprinting method that doesn't work on this particular card?

So does anyone have any ideas or recommendations on what I should do?

Just use it in NZ for your groceries and gas then put the money you were going to use for that towards the holiday?
