Staples is back again with one of their $20 rebates. It has been a while since the last one came around and I was getting worried because I had noticed that two Staples locations in my area had removed their gift card racks completely.
But, starting Sunday 10/4/15 through Saturday 10/10/15 Staples is offering a $20 Staples Gift Card when you purchase $300 or more of Mastercard gift cards (page 10). The $20 rebate will already give you a small profit, but when combined with one of the Chase Ink cards [5X Ultimate Rewards] or Amex SimplyCash [5% back] the deal becomes much much more appealing.
The deal is valid in store only and you can only receive one rebate per household, so you might need the help of friends and relatives to use more than one address when you fill out the rebate forms online.
The bad part is that the rebate comes in Staples gift cards that you can only use for purchases at Staples. You can also go the reselling rout and get about 86% back.
The best way to maximize your returm, would be to purchase two $200 MCGCs for every transaction. The total cost will be $413.90 and you’ll already make a profit of $6.10 after the $20 rebate. But on top of that you will also receive 2,070 CHASE UR points per transaction.
