  1. I don’t have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash card. Any other premium cards code for Office Supplies at a high multiple?

  2. The Fort Myers Staples store manager declined to offer me fee free Visa cards this morning. He stated that the offer was for last week and further stated that what I had shown him printed from your website did not apply because it was not a STAPLES direct offer.
    I argued with him for sometime and he eventually gave me two different visa cards with no fee, but warned me not to come back anymore times this week and it was a limit today to two gift cards per person.

    Are you sure that your listing of the offer was correct? He was adamant that it was not and was out of date even though it said valid from 12/10 to 12 /16/23. ?????

    • I believe you are correct. Cannot use staples gift card to purchase a Visa gift card. but you could always give it a try. and report back on your findings.

  3. all well and good but my nearby staples store always sells out of cards (visa or mc)
    during these sales resulting in a wasted trip!

    • Go there now when they are not on sale and pick up a bunch of cards. Since they have no value until purchased, I don’t think it is shoplifting.
      Then, go back when they are on sale and buy them.

  4. Yes – just took advantages of 8 cards today using my Chase 5X cards. Staples clerks mentioned that the Visa GCs sell much better that the Mastercard GCs. I did not elaborate.

  5. my local Staples has begun keeping the Visa GCs behind the service center counter in a secured area. i bot 8 GCs, but got the feeling i could have purchased more than the ad limit of 8.

  6. For us Texans with an HEB grocery store nearby, look at for a offer “buy $150 of Staples gift cards, get FREE! $25.00 HEB Gift Card (HEB GC must be included in the order). So look for the coupon at the GC rack or use use HEB digideal coupon.

  7. At my Staples, the manager said I could only buy $800 worth with one credit card but could buy another $800 with another card. Go figure!

    • It is weird how some stores are always stocked and others never have any. I think some hold them back during promos

      • I have a theory on this FWIW.

        Remember back when they used to have a limit of one card? Back then, two of my Staples stores always hid the cards when a deal was on.

        After talking with the store managers, the reason became clear. They were saving the cards just for regular MSR*’s who would give top reviews off the receipts, (and of course they enforced no limits, routinely bought 9 per transaction). LOL…

  8. I was just able to load $200 MetaBank Visa GC per 1 swipe. YMMV but must depend on the technology at the Service Center terminal.

  9. $200 Visa GC still loading at $99/swipe at WMT. I was able to purchase a total of 10 cards with 5 cards processed each transaction. Manager on duty recognized me in a positive manner.

    • Two days in a row went to buy $400 and One of the Two would not activate.

      First time I wasn’t paying attention to the total and didn’t realize until I got home that yeah I walked out with 2 cards but then found out only One was activated.

      Then next day had to get the manager to activate the Second one before I left from Staples.. Not sure what was going on.

  10. Mark,
    Per a phone conversation, my Staples here in Texas says that the promo ended last week. I did not visit the store as it is a 70 mile round trip.

    • They extended it into this week. I was there a few times this week – I can confirm there is in fact a deal going on.

  11. Hi Mark, I went to my local staples for $200 Visa card and tried to pay with my Chase Ink business cards. The manager rung me up and said Staples is no longer accepting credit cards for payment. I had to pay with cash or debit card. I shook my head and said no that’s crazy….. I used my credit card before. He said they recently implemented this new policy and by paying with credit card it’s actually considered money laundering. I walked out without my $200 Visa card. 🙁

    Have u experienced this?

    • I have not but I know sometimes people run into a power hungry teller or manager that makes up things on the spot. I would try a different store next time or try to catch a different employee and see what they say. I doubt it is company wide or anything.
