Starting on Sunday 1/14/18 through 1/20/18, Staples is offering a $20 Visa Prepaid Card via easy rebate when you purchase $300 or more in Visa gift cards. The $20 rebate will already give you a small profit, but when combined with one of the Chase Ink Plus/Bold/Cash cards [5X Ultimate Rewards] or Amex SimplyCash [5% back] the deal becomes much better.
The deal is valid in store only. See add here.
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.
You’re limited to $2,000 in gift card purchases every day, including the fees.
How To Get Rebate
If your purchase includes at least $300 in Visa gift cards during the promotion period, an additional rebate receipt will print out when the order is completed. The rebate information is also printed at the bottom of your regular receipt.
Save one of the receipts and fill out the rebate form online here, to receive your $20 Visa Gift Card. Choose ‘In a STORE’, enter the Easy Rebate ID from your receipt and then fill out your information on the next page. It will take a few weeks for the $20 Visa Cards to arrive in the mail.
How to Maximize Profits
The best way to maximize the offer, would be to purchase two $200 VGCs 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 if you’re using your Chase Ink cards.
You could also purchase a $200 card and a $100 card to trigger the rebate. You would save $1 but you would lose out on 500 Ultimate Rewards points on the extra $100 in spend.

This is the best offer of this kind from Staples. You get a $20 Visa gift card rebate which you can use anywhere, and it requires a Visa gift cards purchase which are easier to liquidate than Mastercard or Amex gift cards. The offer is limited to one rebate per household, but if you have a few addresses where you can send the rebates, then you can take advantage of it more than once.
