Obviously remove the card if you haven't already. Use pliers with a grip and try to rotate, make sure you have a tight grip on the screw. Don't wiggle, it's not gonna do anything. If you can't get a grip, put a small layer of rubber between the pliers and screw. Rubberband, or anything that you can get a grip on. Might make holding on easier.

I tried gripping it with pliers, no luck, but I haven't tried putting some rubber between the pliers, so I'll give that a shot

This.

This is also useful if you have a screw that is completely mashed and no longer fits the screw driver.
