Staples Holiday Deal – Gift Card Bonus

Staples has brought their holiday gift card promotion back. They ran a similar deal last year. (Although last year’s deal had lower stakes.)

If you purchase $300 worth of Staples e-gift cards, you will get a bonus $50 e-gift card for use from December 2 – December 31, 2014

This promotion is running from November 9 – November 15, 2014 and only one bonus is allowed per person.

My Experience Last Year

Staples holiday deal

Last year I participated in a similar bonus. I found that you could buy more than one if you used a different email address. One bonus for everyone in your very large family.

Be careful though since you most likely will not be able to use these to buy Visa/MC gift cards in store. Also, the Staples website will not allow you to buy Visa Gift Cards with them. Some people have had success buying merchant gift cards at Staples with their gift cards.

I ended up getting stuck with a ton of Staples gift cards last year which were a pain to get rid of. This is a great deal though if you have an upcoming purchase from Staples, can buy merchant gift cards, want to give a gift or if you like to resell.

Keep in mind this purchase is processed through Cashstar and thus doesn’t earn portal cashback or 5x points on the Ink card. Something to consider.

This is a great deal for the right people in the right situation. Before you jump, make sure that you completely understand the parameters. Happy Holidays (early)!

  1. “Some people have had success buying merchant gift cards at Staples with their gift cards.”

    I’m assuming you mean in-store? Might have to buy some more Sears gift cards. 🙂

  2. This might be good for me I’m thinking to buy an iPad Air 2. I have 2 Staple $20 gift cards I am owed from the MGC promotion recently, plus 2 more from the Visa. THey are still processing. Does anyone know if you can combine like 5 gift cards plus credit card into a purchase? I’ll have to look at the math on this, I’d be forgoing the Chase 5x Ink for the bulk of the purchase.
