It’s Back! Staples Visa Gift Card Deal: No Fee + Earn 5X

This post may contain affiliate links; please read our advertiser disclosure for more information.

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 discounts and promos that can help offset the fee, but today they are waiving the fee completely! “Free” spend if you will.

The Offer

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

Key Terms

  • Offer valid 3/5/23 – 3/11/23
  • Limit 8 per customer per day.

Earning 5X Points

Cards like the Chase Ink Plus and Ink Cash will earn 5X/5% back on these purchases. For example, if you purchase the limit of 8 x $200 Visa gift cards you should earn 8,000 Ultimate Rewards points for those cards.

Any other cards with the “office supply” bonus category should also earn bonus points for these purchases.

Make It Even Better?

There might be a way to squeeze just a little more juice out of this lemon. According to GCGalore, if you link your payment card to the Payce app and activate the offer for Staples, you will earn an additional $5 cashback. I haven’t used it, but it could be worth doing if you absolutely want to maximize the deal.


It’s nice to see this $200 no-fee Visa gift card offer return for 2023. The most recent offers haven’t been as generous, so perhaps it is time to pull out that Ink card to start racking up some Ultimate Rewards points.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. $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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
