Using the Chase Ink, the optimal strategy is to purchase one $100 Mastercard gift card. Here is the math:

About the Mastercard Gift Cards
Mastercard gift cards issued by U.S. Bank and the PIN is in the packaging. You can also reset the PIN by calling the number on the back. These can be used as PIN-enabled debit cards at various grocery stores, etc., but using them at Walmart can be tricky since the POS system recognizes them as credit. To get around that you need to quickly change the payment type on the POS screen, but newer versions of the system make it difficult. If you plan to use them at Walmart, YMMV.
This is a great deal and definitely worth doing if you have a location nearby. Make sure that the offer is posted at your location before purchasing. Two rebates will trigger in the same transaction if you make a purchase of $100+ in eligible gift cards.
