Why is Amazon not letting me use my gift card?

Can you turn an Amazon gift card into cash?
Amazon won’t (obviously) exchange the card for you with cash. And if you were to buy something and then return it, they could only credit your account, which gets you nowhere. You can’t ask your friend (or whoever that someone was that gave you the Amazon gift card) to take the card back and give you cash instead.
