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 with this new promotion, you can save $5.

The Offer

  • Save $5 when you buy a $200 Visa® Gift Card

Key Terms

  • Valid 4/7/19–4/13/19
  • 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.

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 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.

You can also use 10% discount from Amex and Chase if you have yet to do so.

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.


You can test it out with multiple Visa gift cards in same transactions, and hopefully it works again. The deal is not as good as previous ones where the activation fee was wiped out completely. You can to pay $1.95 for each $200 card, which still nets you some very cheap credit card rewards or profitable cash back.
