    You can get an free "advance" off the card from, I'm pretty sure, any bank or credit union and either get all of the cash or deposit it in your account, if you have one. I've done this a few times now. The only info you need is how much money is deposited on the card -- or how much you want to withdraw.

    The one thing is that the employees at the bank don't know for a fact that it's free and there's no fee, unless they've done it before. The system is set up so that it's apparently impossible for them to check on it before. The first time I did this I was taking a bit of a risk and was none too happy about it.

    Also, by the way, I'm pretty sure you can use them, and get cash back, at almost all chain grocery stores so if you're near a BofA machine, you can avoid the fees that way -- or at least, if you have to make a few purchases to get all of it, get food for your fees, instead of nothing at all!
