Staples has a new promotion starting Sunday, October 21st. This one is in-store only and will get you an instant discount on MasterCard gift cards. We’re seeing more of these promotions from Staples as they shift away from the mail-in rebate offers.
Staples Mastercard Promotion
Get $5 Off instantly when you buy a $200 MasterCard Gift Card. The promotion starts October 21st and runs through October 27th, in-store only.
Find the offer on the weekly ad.
- Valid Oct 21 – Oct 27
- The Mastercard® Gift Card is issued by U.S. Bank National Association
- Limit 1 per customer.
Stacking Rewards and Cashback
Here’s some possible stacking options that make this deal profitable:
- Use a Chase Ink Plus/Cash credit card for 5X Ultimate Rewards points
- Use Amex SimplyCash Plus credit card to earn 5% cash back
This is a pretty good deal, but not as profitable as the previous mail-in rebate deals. The $200 Mastercard gift card will cost $201.95 after the rebate, but you should be able to earn 5X with either a Chase Ink card or Amex SimplyCash to make this offer profitable. Last time this deal was offered, you could purchase multiple cards in the same transaction and get the $5 discount on each of them.
