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. Today they launched a new promotion on Visa gift cards, with a waived fee. It’s a good way to earn Chase Ultimate Rewards, and now you can redeem them for up to 1.5c on select purchases. Let’s take a look at the details.
- No purchase fee when you buy a $200 Visa® Gift Card
- Valid October 11-17, 2020.
- The Visa Gift Card is issued by MetaBank
- Limit 5 per customer.
You can find the full terms in the weekly ad.
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.
Good to see Staples bring back this offer. Most people probably prefer Visa gift cards, so this is your opportunity to fill up your Ultimate Rewards accounts again if you are gearing up to travel again. Most likely stock will run out quickly, so make your way to your favorite Staples locations early and bring your 5X cards.
