Staples Visa Gift Card 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. But this coming week they have a great deal that will take care of the activation fee.

The Offer

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

Key Terms

  • Valid 1/13/19–1/19/19.
  • The Visa Gift Card is issued by MetaBank
  • Limit 1 per customer.
    • In the past people have been able to purchase more in multiple transactions.

You can find the full terms in the weekly ad

Maximizing This Deal

There seems to be a limit of 1 discounted purchase fee per transaction (who knows if that will be enforced) you may be able to purchase multiple in separate or the same transactions.

Cards like the Chase Ink PlusInk Cash and American Express 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.

Liquidating Visa Gift Card

The Visa gift card is pin-enabled. The PIN number is usually the last four digits of the card number. You can utilize my previous liquidation strategy or simply use it for normal spend.

Conclusion

It’s nice to see Staples move away from the restricted rebate program to a discount that is seemingly more scalable. Test it out with multiple Visa gift cards in same transactions, and hopefully it works again. That would make things much easier.

  1. Anyone here buying multiples in a single transaction? Should we even try? Such a hassle if its only 1 card per visit.

  2. Pet peeve: there’s no such thing as a “PIN number”. It’s lke saying “ASAP possible” or “FAQ questions”.
    I now return to to actually useful comments.
