Staples Mastercard Gift Card Deal
For a long time Staples has run Visa and Mastercard mail-in rebate deals, but now they seem to have switched over to instant discounts. This coming week they have a Mastercard discount that may be of interest to some. Let’s take a look.
Update 8/22/21: New deal is now live. Happy 5X’ing!
- Get $6.95 off when you purchase a $200 Mastercard gift card.
- Offer valid 8/22/21 – 8/28/21.
- The Mastercard® Gift Card is issued by Metabank, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International.
- Limit of 5 per person, per day
You can find the full terms in the weekly ad on page 10.
Maximizing This Deal
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.
Spending the Mastercards
These Mastercards are PIN-enabled and should work anywhere Mastercard is accepted. I know people have had issues with these coding as debit cards at Walmart, but they do work at some places and can be run as credit if you are just using them to buy normal products.

In my opinion you can never get enough office supply store gift card deals. This one is probably my favorite because you can easily spend $1,000 in one trip. Even though the Office Depot deals are slightly profitable I have more Staples locations around me and I’ll give up the small profit for the extra 3 cards per purchase.
