Dear 100 Hour Board,
Is there a way to transfer money out of Cougar Cash? Even if it's just to my BYU tuition account, it would be helpful to be able to use money from participating in research or winning BYU contests for something other than the bookstore and food.
Inklings gave you some good ideas of what to do with your Cougar Cash. He also linked to an FAQ that has the answer to your question. The short answer is, no, you can't transfer money out of your Cougar Cash. The long answer is, yes, you can transfer money but it costs $10, takes at least a week, and you get it as a check, all of which is very unhelpful.
So yeah, go rent a Dutch oven at Outdoors Unlimited, or get your coat dry-cleaned at BYU Laundry, or print a giant poster of your favorite band at Cougar Creations, etc.
