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

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.
