If your credit card account is in good standing, you are not only capable of using the card to obtain cash but encouraged by the card issuer to do so. Cash advances typically carry an APR different from than that attached to credit card purchases. The balance owed for the cash advance remains forever at the back of the line: If you owe $1,000 for credit card purchases and $500 for a cash advance, the full amount of all payments will be applied toward the former until it is paid off. Only then will your payment go toward elimination of the cash advance.
Use your credit card to withdrawal cash from an automated teller machine. The process for doing so is the same as that for withdrawing money using a debit card. Insert your credit card and provide your PIN when prompted by the ATM.
Use your credit card to make a purchase at a grocery store. When asked if you want cash back, click "Yes" and then specify the amount.
Write a check against your credit balance. Many financial institutions send special checks to credit card holders, encouraging them to use the checks like a credit card. The checks are linked to the credit card account rather than to a checking account.
