Staples has a new promotion starting Sunday, August 5th. 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 8/5/18 and runs through 8/11/18, in-store only.
- Valid 8/5/18–8/11/18.
- 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 an American Express business credit card with the 10% Staples Amex Offer.
- Use a Chase Ink Plus/Cash credit card for 5X Ultimate Rewards points
- Use Amex SimplyCash Plus credit card to earn 5% cash back
- Use Staples Amex Offer to get a $5 statement credit
The 10% Amex Offer on business cards is the most profitable option. The $200 Mastercard gift card will cost $201.95 after the rebate. With the Amex offer you will get $22 back. A $20 profit.
This is a pretty good deal, but not as profitable as the previous mail-in rebate deals or this Office Depot promotion that is going right now. Staples currently has a similar deal online for those who do not have a location nearby.
