Staples Amex Offer

American Express has released a new targeted Amex Offer for

The Offer

Get a one-time $25 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $100+ in one or more transactions online at by 6/19/2016.

How to Load

This Amex Offer seems to be highly targeted. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find it on any of my accounts, but others have had more success. As of now this offer can only be loaded on the American Express website or through the app. It cannot be loaded via Twitter or other social media platform.

What to Buy?

Staples sells a variety of physical gift cards which should work to trigger this offer. You could purchase many merchant gift cards or even Visa gift cards. A $100 or $200 Visa gift card costs $6.95. If you purchased a $100 Visa gift card your net cost would be $81.95 after the credit.


  • Valid online only.
  • Valid only on US website. Not valid in-store.
  • If you order an item during the offer period but it is not provided until after 6/19/2016, it may not count towards determining whether the purchase qualifies for the offer.
  • Not valid on purchases shipped outside of the US.
  • Not valid for e-gift card purchases. Not valid for gift cards in bulk purchases.
  • Offer not valid on online orders that are placed in-store through sales associate. Excludes Quill, Smilemaker, Staples Business Advantage, Staples 4 Government, Staples Toner Services, Staples Technology Solutions, Staples Promotional Products, Staples Print Solutions (same as Staples Easy Print), Copy and Printing Services, Staples Contract and Commercial, Staples App Center, Staples Industrial, Staples Book Rental, Staples Simplexity, Staples Share fund, and Coastwide Labs.


I’m a little sad I wasn’t targeted, but hopefully many of you will have better luck. This is a great offer if you have it since there are so many gift cards available for purchase. Were you targeted? If so, on how many cards. Let us know in the comments!

  1. If anyone needs an iPad pro on this offers then it’s $100 cheaper which makes it $699 and no tax so final price is $674 with this deal. This is 32GB.

  2. Got it on our recently applied for SPG personal. Didn’t get it on the new SPG business or any other Amex cards. I haven’t used these offers before – I assume just one offer per card? So I can only buy a single $100 gift card?

  3. 4 for 4 (8 for 8 with AU cards).

    Does anyone have a trick for getting all tabs to “get” offer?
    I often miss one or two for some reason. Like this time although
    I had on 8 cards, I only successfully loaded it on 7 cards.

    Thanks Shawn!

  4. Thanks so much for the tip! Got the offer on 5/6 cards. Only one that didn’t get it was the SPG card I opened in March.

  5. My wife and I got this on 22 out of 22 cards! (including authorized users.)

    So pumped! Basically 25% everywhere for $2,200 in spend anywhere that Staples sells gift cards for.

  6. Thank you Shawn for letting us know this awesome deal. 9 out of 14. Those newly opened AMEX SPG (Business/Personal) Cards are not targeted but an old time SPG account does show this offer.

    Is American Express Sync Offers via Facebook or Twitter not working anymore?

  7. Not a single offer for my wife or I. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve capitalized on a single amex offer this year. Not been a good year for offers, similar to the overall direction of Amex.

  8. a bit off topic but lets say I ordered Whole Food physical gift card. I have an active google express account(trial period and it ends soon, dont want to renew). could i order through google express<whole foods and use the gift cards?

  9. terms says limit one per account, if we have five cards and all five targeted on one account, does that mean we get one credit or five if we used all ? Anyone confirm they had success using more than one?

  10. I can confirm this works on Target Gift Cards (email delivery). Received the “Thank you! You’ve just used your Amex Offer” in less than 5 minutes after submitting purchase. Only thing in the purchase was a $100 Target Gift Card. So happy. Just about to get a free $200 + 5% towards my Disney trip.

  11. Any thoughts on or experience with sales tax being added to some gift cards? This shouldn’t happen, correct? I just bought a $100 eBay gift card and it came out to $111 (incl. $1.99 delivery fee) in NY. I had read on Dan’s Deals (related to a Staples gift card sale earlier this month) that sales tax would show during the purchase process, but would not be charged in the final purchase, so I went ahead. However, just confirmed over the phone with Amex that the pending charge was for the full $111.

    • Same happened to me (in Maryland), so I called Staples and they said sales tax was charged in error and they’d email me a new receipt with the correct price.

  12. I had it on 8 out of 8 cards (SPG and Amex Blue). Do you think it’s just the Staples brand e-gift cards excluded? I use Staples a lot to buy Target gift card then turn around and use them to buy Discounted Disney Gift Cards. Can you every $$ there to save money at Disney World.
