Staples, Get $20 Rebate On $300+ Visa Gift Cards Plus Amex Offer Or 5X UR (5/7-5/13)

Starting on Sunday 5/7/17 through 5/13/17, Staples is offering a $20 Visa Prepaid Card via easy rebate when you purchase $300 or more in Visa gift cards (see weekly ad). The $20 rebate will already give you a small profit, but when combined with one of the Chase Ink cards [5X Ultimate Rewards], Amex SimplyCash [5% back] or if you have the Staples Amex Offer the deal becomes much better.

The deal is valid in store only. 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 $20 gift cards are issued by Metabank and can be used for everyday purchases anywhere.

You’re limited to $2,000 in gift card purchases every day, including the fees.

Save your receipts and easily fill out the rebate form online here, to receive your $20 Visa GC.

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.

Using Staples Amex Offer

This time around you could do even better if you were targeted for this generous Amex Offer for Staples. This offer gives you 2,000 MR points on a purchase of $100 or more. So if you purchase $300 worth in Visa gift cards ($200+$100), it would cost $312.90 and you would make $7.10 after rebate and 2,313 MR points. If you have the Amex Offer on more than one card you can try doing a split payment and you’ll receive 4,313 MR points instead, for the same purchase.

  1. I haven’t been there in a few months, but it’s hit or miss. Sometimes it’s smooth, and sometimes they’ve asked to fill out forms or made up store rules.

  2. DP: at my go to Staples, I have not been able to pay with Staples GC as partial payment for VGC/MCGC. I kept trying though and hit it bigtime today. I was paying for two VGC together with a small item <$5. When total came up, I swiped a $25 Staples GC and it won't go through, cashier took it from me, swiped on the horizontal swiper and it went through. I stretched my luck with three more GCs and they all went through. I was so relieved to finally drain those Staples GCs, I thought I'd have to re-sell for loss but now, they're out of my hands and I've drained the VGCs to my prepaid cards!

    Lesson learned: just keep trying, as long as the register allows it and the cashier doesn't stop it, go for it! If register won't take it, I don't push it.

    • That’s great. And good tip to keep on trying. I hadn’t tried in a long time. I don;t have any Staples GCs left but will definitely give it a try next time. Thanks for info.

  3. Any experience – positive or negative – of liquidating these at Valley Stream WM near JFK? Thanks.
