Staples Has a Profitable Online Deal for Mastercard Gift Cards

Staples has a great promotion online with a discount on Mastercard gift cards. There’s a $5 instant savings that brings down the cost of the cards and mas them profitable when calculating credit card rewards and maybe cashback.

The Offer

Buy a $100 Mastercard Gift Cards for $101.95. Limit of 3 per account.

Key Terms

  • While Supplies Last. May Not Be Valid In Combination With Other Offers.
  • Offer Expires On 08/04/2018


This is a good offer that gets even better when stacked with other savings or rewards. First you should try going through a shopping portal. RetailMeNot is offering $10 Cash Back for Online Purchases of $75+ Sitewide at Staples (HT: Doctor of Credit).

Then there’s the credit card rewards. The best option would be an American Express credit card with the 10% Staples Amex Offer. That would give you another $10 in savings. Otherwise, you can use a Chase Ink Plus/Cash credit card for 5X Utlimate Rewards points on Staples purchases.


This is a profitable deal that could get even better if RetailMeNot pays out on these purchases. Downsides are that only $100 denominations are discounted and you’re limited to 3 cards. You also need to make sure you can liquidate these gift cards. But even liquidating them on regular spending, would still make sense here.

  1. Chase ink cash does not give 5% for online order from Staples or OfficeMax.

    Just did last week and got only 1%. Called them and was told has to be in store.

    • James you would be the first contradictory DP that I have heard of that. Unless the item you bought went through a 3rd party seller etc.

  2. If you have a business AmEx, you can add the double points at and the 10% cash back offers to the card. I bought the 3 cards limit for $305.85. I got the $30.58 rebate from AmEx, 611 MR points (since I use the MR points for airline tickets and get the 35% point rebate on my Plat Biz card that is worth about $8.24) and 4% cash back from Ebates ($12.23). So before the MR points, that is a $42.81 rebate on $305.85 gift cards. That is a 13.99 discount. I will take it.

  3. am still learning, but I can use my AMEX 10% card with Ebates 3% in store, right? At least the in-store on visa gc’s worked a few months ago & is about to pay out.
