Staples Fee Free Visa Promo

Staples Fee Free Visa Promo

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. This Sunday they are bringing a promotion on Visa gift cards, with a waived fee. Let’s take a look.

The Offer

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

Key Terms

  • Valid 12/15/19–12/21/19.
  • The Visa Gift Card is issued by MetaBank
  • Limit 1 per customer.

You can find the full terms in the upcoming ad on page 11.

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.

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.


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, so this is your opportunity to fill up your Ultimate Rewards accounts, or just earn cashback. Most likely stock will run out quickly, so make your way to your favorite Staples locations early and bring your 5X cards.

  1. Really? YOU play the points game all the time and this is your question?
    It’s a VISA gift card, not a Staples gift card you buy from Staples. Only works for you if you have a Chase card with 5x or 3x points at office supply stores.

  2. I play the points game all the time however I’ve never bought gift cards. Are you saying we buy the staples gift card and can use it anywhere? Amazon, pay a phone bill? I chatted with staples and they said they are just to buy from Staples? Could you explain further?
