Appreciate the responses friends! I will go with an e-gift card then as expected.

I really like the idea of selling it too...so I will check out CardCash!!! AA is not a preferred airline of ours...so just looking to cash in on the credit somehow instead of just wasting it!

Bought a $100 AA e-gc on Feb 08, credit posted on Feb 11...so all went well here too.

Going to head over to Card Cash now since AA is not a preferred airline for us. This will be my first experience selling there. Any tips or advice?

EDIT: already sold for the same $74 price...couldn't have been easier!

It appears that TB is starting to be reimbursed by Amex again, so it might work BofA as well (if it ever stopped at all like Amex did).

Had to top up some AA miles, so bought for $225.75 on 2/19.
Needle moved on 2/21 for full $100 credit.
Waiting for credit to hit account.

Go to the Rewards tab of the account page, then in a column to the right hit the "View rewards and benefits" blue button.
