Staples is running another gift card promotion that should allow you to earn some miles and actually turn a small profit as well. When you buy $300 or more in Visa Gift Cards you will receive a $20 Visa Gift Card via Staples easy rebate.
The largest denomination Visa cards that I have seen in Staples are $200 and they come with a $5.95 fee. Buy 2 cards for $11.90 in fees and you will profit $8.10 plus earn whatever miles or points based on the card pay with. If you use a Chase Ink card you will be earning 2,059 points for the two $200 gift cards at no cost to you.
These are Visa gift cards issued by MetaBank which are easy to set a PIN and then liquidate via Bluebird or money orders.
The offer is available starting tomorrow April 13 and goes through April 19th. There is also a limit of one $20 Visa rebate per household. If you have multiple homes or friends and relatives you may be able to take advantage of this more than once. I would suggest not waiting till the end of the week as these cards tend to get bought up fairly quick during these promotions.
Also if you are one of the very lucky who were able to get the Amexsync offer for $20 back on a $100 Staples purchase this could be a really sweet deal for you! So who will be taking advantage of this? Will you be using an Ink card for the 5x or a different card? Anyone using this to help hit minimum spending on a new card?
