I just received my $200 card. You cannot get the cash. I called and asked how. They told me that there is not any cash access. It must be spent. It also has an experation date of 4/10 !
Oh well, time to go shopping.
That's what I thought. When I finally got my cards I seem to recall there was no cash advance option. I have long since tossed the paperwork that came with them.
