What do I do with tons of AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud credits?

I recently won a pitch competition that included $20,000 in Google Cloud credits for the winner, along with $5,000 in AWS credits. I was already sitting on a bunch of AWS and Azure credits I'd received from other events and sources, so now I'm swimming in these credits with no idea how to use them in a productive manner. Is there a marketplace for such a thing? My company is not a tech company so the only obvious fit is to use them for hosting, but our hosting costs in a year wouldn't even take up the $5,000 in AWS credits, let alone the Google Cloud credits, so I'm hoping there's some way I can get something more productive out of these.

How many employees do you have?
At the moment it's just myself and one part-timer on the digital marketing/social media side.

So it seems like the answer is "you can't sell or transfer them, but can have other people use them if you so desire".

So yeah, I've got tons of credits if anyone is looking to use them for something.
