Staples Visa Gift Card Deal

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.

The Offer

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

Key Terms

  • Valid 9/2/18–9/8/18.
  • 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 (PG 5)

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 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.

Stay away from American Express Cards with the 10% Amex Offers if you have earned $100 in credits already.

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. I think you can safely eliminate the language “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.” Staples hasn’t run rebates now in almost a year and a half.

  2. Also, you wrote “it is probably best to purchase $200 cards in order to achieve the most spend.” However, the only option here is to purchase a $200 gift card as that is the only thing that is discounted.
