Staples Fee Free Mastercard Promo

Staples Mastercard 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. They do often run rebate promos on these cards, however the rebates are limited to one per household meaning it gets hard to scale up. 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 4/21-4/27/2019.
  • The Mastercard® Gift Card is issued by Metabank, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International.
  • No apparent limit

You can find the full terms in the weekly ad on page 3.

Maximizing This Deal

There’s a limit of 1 per customers. 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.

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. I strongly prefer Mastercard deals since my liquidation method works fine with any of Visa/MC/AMEX, so the lesser demand (vs. the demand for Visa) means it’s more likely my local stores will continue to have stock.

  2. These cards are issued by Metabank so there there no issue unloading to BB with the same promo they had last week.
