I have like $35 in my Paypal account and I need to find somewhere online (like Wal Mart, Meijer) that I can get a gift card, pay with paypal, and let it be sent to me.<br><br>
Anyone got any ideas?

PayPal charges to send you a check.<br><br>
If you don't use PP often, this wouldn't be worth it, but I have their debit card. All of my clients pay through PP, so it's great. Another option unless you need the money immediately would be to connect it to your bank account and then have the funds deposited into your bank account. There's no fee for that or getting the debit card. (With the debit card, you also have to connect PP to your bank account.)

True. They charge $1.50.

I wasn't able to get a debit card and I don't have an ID for this new state to cash a check.

Since we just moved here, I really only know our room mates. So that is a no go.

You can buy gift cards to just about anywhere on ebay- just make sure the seller has good feedback! They typically go for really close to full value, but you might even be able to save a few $ that way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

A major bank will be able to cash a check issued from PayPal if you have some sort of ID - it does not have to be the ID of the state where you are.
