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. This coming week, they are waiving $5 off the fees on Visa gift cards.
UPDATE 4/11/22: the deal is back.
- $5 off the fee when you buy a $200 Visa® Gift Card
- Valid 4/10/22 – 4/16/22.
- The Visa Gift Card is issued by MetaBank
- Limit 5 per customer.
Maximizing This Deal
There’s a limit of 5 per customers. Cards like the Chase Ink Plus, Ink 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.
While this deal isn’t as good as the fee free sales paying $1.95 for 1,000 Ultimate Rewards points (worth $15) is still a good deal. A lot of people prefer the Staples deals because of the higher $1000 limits per purchase too.
