Got any remnant gift cards with balances of less than $5 in your wallet? What can you do with them?

I’ve been wondering what to do with the AmEx gift card with the balance of $3.23 on it. Yesterday I found a great solution. Use it at the gas pump (to buy about 1 gallon of fuel!). The card gets authorized only for the amount remaining. Sweet! I did this by mistake – and I had to stop for fuel again about 6 hours later – but I’ve got one less card to carry around.
