Staples Stacking Deals

Staples has a number of fantastic deals today that you can stack to make a handy profit. Specifically:

By utilizing the Visa Checkout and Amex Offer promotions, you can buy software and make a $50 profit. Here is how it works:

  • Start through a portal. Upromise is paying 5% or Top Cashback is paying 4%.
  • Checkout via Visa Checkout. When checking out select Visa Checkout and login or create a Visa Checkout account. Add an Amex card with the Amex Offer to your Visa Checkout account and pay with it.
  • Submit your rebate online and wait for the money to come!

The Math

In the end the math looks something like this:

  • Charged to Amex: -$110.03
  • Amex Offer Credit: $+20
  • Rebate: $+135
  • Portal Cashback 5%: +$5.50
  • Total profit: $50.47 plus credit card and Staples Rewards

Need to Know

  • Staples does charge sales tax in some states on downloads.
  • Previous similar deals went quickly so it is likely this one will too.
  • There is a limit of 3 rebates per household so by careful if trying to do this on multiple accounts.

HT to Chuck at Doctor of Credit who laid this out beautifully!

  1. i tried (thanks Shawn) but it said the Kaspersky was out of stock. Submitted order yesterday, received OoS email today.

  2. Shawn, do you know whats up with trying to submit the rebate, only to receive a “Your eligible rebates are still being determined” message? The item is marked as “shipped” so I’m not sure what’s up. I’m going to try again in the morning and hopefully the system will let it run its course and do the rebate.

  3. Visa Checkout deal already dead.. placed the order to find will not be getting that part.

    Still need to hit the minimum spend on my Hilton AMEX, so if Staples refuses to cancel me maybe I shouldn’t dispute the charge and instead just settle for the lower return on rebate.. even if don’t feel like getting three prepaid visa cards unless they were compensating me handsomely. (Only a 20% gross return without Visa Checkout)

    After the fact, site claims downloadable software is not returnable or refundable.
