Get a $20 Staples GC With the Purchase of $300 or More in MasterCard Gift Cards 7/13 – 7/19

Staples has just published their ad that goes into effect on Sunday, July 13th. Between Staples and Office Max you can usually find a deal on gift cards at least every other week or so. The new Staples ad, which is valid 7/13-7/19, has an offer to receive a $20 Staples gift card when you buy at least $300 worth of MasterCard gift cards.

Get a $20 Staples gift card when you buy $300 or more in mastercard gift cardsThe $20 Staples gift card comes via Easy Rebate so you will have to jump online and submit the rebate before you can receive your gift card. After that it is just a waiting game as it can take 4-6 weeks generally to receive your gift card in the mail. There is a limit of 1 rebate per household but if you have family and friends…..

While this isn’t as enticing as some of the past offers where you would receive a Visa gift card as the rebate, it is still a good deal. If you are someone who does any regular spending at Staples anyway then the Staples gift card should be as good as cash to you.

It has been a little while since I have purchased MasterCard gift cards at Staples but last time I was there they largest denomination they carried was a $200 card with a purchase fee of $6.95. So assuming your local store carries the $200 cards you should be able to buy 2 cards for a cost of $13.90 and then receive a $20 Staples gift card for a profit of $6.10 in addition to the free miles/points you will be earning on the transaction from your credit card. Use your Ink cards for 5x points for a total of 2,000 points & $6.10 profit (assuming you by 2x $200 cards).

    Can Staples gift cards be used to purchase visa/mastercard gift cards?

  2. Rich says:

    I’ve probably got around $100 from past rebate promotions they’ve had and wasn’t sure if you could use them to purchase one from the website with staples GC(s).

    Something I’ve learned with MS that the less human interaction with store employees..the better!

    • I agree with that for sure! Try to use them online and see what happens!

        I was able to use the staples store gift cards to purchase a visa gift card on a $200 card and the remainder was over $100 so I was able to pay the remainder for an AMEX that I had linked the offer spend $100 get $15 statement credit.

        • Rich says:

          That last part may come across as a bit confusing. The total was a little over $100 after staple store gift cards. I paid for the remainder with an AMEX credit card that I had synced an offer of spending $100 at Staples, get a $15 statement credit.

    Do we need to buy Staples Mastercard giftcard $300 for rebate or can I buy “any” Master card giftcard from Staples for qualifying the rebate?

Let me know what you are thinking!
