No Fee Mastercard Deal

Easy 5X UR Points With Staples No Fee Mastercard Deal

Staples sells a variety of Visa & Mastercard gift cards. Depending on the value (up to $200) the fee to purchase these can cost as much as $6.95. They do often run rebate promos on these cards, making it an easy way to rack up points. Well, this week they are bringing back a different offer that waives the fee completely. Let’s take a look.

The Offer

  • No purchase fee when you buy a $200 Mastercard® Gift Card

Key Terms

  • Valid 7/21/2019–7/27/2019.
  • The Mastercard® Gift Card is issued by Metabank, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International.
  • Limit 1 per customer.

You can find the full terms in the weekly ad.

Maximizing This Deal

Cards like the Chase Ink Plus, Ink Cash and Amex SimplyCash Plus will all earn 5X/5% back on these purchases. I also assume you may be able to visit multiple stores and/or ask to do multiple transactions despite the terms, but that is obviously YMMV.

WARNING

Mastercards have had some fraud issues in the past so only purchase them if you have a known and immediate use for them.  Letting them sit in your draw for a few weeks/months is not a good idea.

Spending the Mastercards

These Mastercards are PIN-enabled and should work anywhere Mastercard is accepted. I know people have had issues with these coding as debit cards at Walmart, but they do work at some places and can be run as credit if you are just using them to buy normal products.

Conclusion

It’s nice to see Staples bring back this offer, as many 5X sources have been drying up lately. Most people probably prefer Visa gift cards, but this should also be useful.

  1. Hey, my Staples changed their brand of MC gift cards…not sure what the old one was, but instead of mygiftcardsite for registration, it’s a giftcardmall URL. Hopefully this takes care of the fast draining fraud problem.

  2. To the mastercard challenged,

    Simply do not let the Wally associat hit enter before you change the payment to debit. They work.

    • I am suddenly getting a 1% rate when I pay with MC on Plastiq. There was no email announcement about this, but when I went online to pay my quarterly advisor fee, I immediately saw that the Plastiq fee was 1%, not 2.5. Yippee! And then it dawned on me that I can be liquidating my MC cards this way. DUH!!! I have been using a MC credit card for my mortgage, but will change to the Staples cards I have piled up. I need to get rid of these!!! I don’t know when that Plastiq MC deal is slated to end, but I’m putting everything on those cards and using them up. Whew!!
