What to Do with a Tiny Balance on a Prepaid Credit Card

   Have you ever gotten an all purpose prepaid Visa, MasterCard, etc. as a gift and had just a small amount left on it?  In the past, I was not sure how to use them up because some stores will not let you split your payment method so that you can use the remaining balance on the card combined with another card or even cash.  Today I stumbled upon this solution.

   Did you know that Amazon.com will let you reload your gift card balances with them?  I always keep my gift card balance account at Amazon.com so that I can add gift cards that I get for them from Swagbucks to my balance.  Today I discovered that I can add the tiny balances from my prepaid Visa and Master Cards that I have been given or won to my Amazon Gift card balance through their "reload your balance" feature.  Since I do use Amazon.com to order supplies for our hot tub on a regular basis, this was a very welcome feature!

    Maybe I am late to the game and that everyone else already knew this.  It would not be the first time, but I was so thrilled to discover this and just had to share!
