Staples Mastercard Gift Card Deal

Staples Visa Gift Card Deal

Staples sells a variety of Visa & Mastercard gift cards. Depending on the value (up to $200) the fee to purchase these can cost as much as $6.95. They do often run rebate promos on these cards, however the rebates are limited to one per household meaning it gets hard to scale up. Well, this week they are bringing back a different offer that waives the fee completely. Let’s take a look.

The Offer

  • No purchase fee when you buy a $200 Visa® Gift Card

Key Terms

    • Valid October 18-24, 2020.
    • The Visa Gift Card is issued by MetaBank
    • Limit 5 per customer.

    You can find the full terms in the weekly ad.

Maximizing This Deal

There’s a limit of 1 per customers. Cards like the Chase Ink PlusInk 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.

Liquidating Visa Gift Card

The Visa gift card is pin-enabled. The PIN number is usually the last four digits of the card number. You can utilize my previous liquidation strategy or simply use it for normal spend.


It’s nice to see Staples bring back this offer, as many 5X sources have been drying up lately. Most people probably prefer Visa gift cards, so this is your opportunity to fill up your Ultimate Rewards accounts.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
