What's the preferred way of getting cash from a credit card without paying extortionate fees? Tried using "request money" with PayPal and the transaction was declined. Tried Square, but payouts were suspended a couple of hours after the transaction so had to "refund" myself. Prepaid cards and postal orders are now treated as cash transactions. I don't know anyone with a terminal and the cash on hand to run through. I have a card with substantial headroom in it but no money transfer facility. (When I asked, they just said "we don't have any promotional offers for you right now", and when I said I'd do it at the standard rate instead they just repeated the same line.)
There's no dirty money involved here, but invoking the financial difficulties procedure with any of my creditors substantially harms my ability to get a job in my field locally so I'd rather not do it, and the Bank of Mum and Dad has already been tapped this year. Overdraft limit will be hit at the end of this month and can't be raised.
