The Fine Print

  • Limit of one rebate per household
  • Must complete a staples easy rebate to get $15 staples gift card
  • Deal valid from December 7th till December 13th

Our Verdict

There are a couple of ways to maximize this deal. It’s important to remember that a Staples gift card isn’t as good as cash, according to Gift Card Granny you can resell it for 86.5% of facevalue so we’re going to assign the $15 giftcard as $12.975 in cash. Here are a couple of different ways to maximize this deal:

1. AmEx Offers

Earlier this week we let you know about an American Express sync offer that gives you a $20 statement credit when you spend $100 or more at Staples.

  • Purchase $200 giftcard and ask the cashier to split tender it across two American Express cards enrolled in the offer. (+$40 in statement credits, -$206.95 for giftcard and fees)
  • Receive one $15 giftcard valued at $12.975 cash

You’d make $52.975 on this deal. If you had a way of getting multiple easy rebates, then you could just purchase $100 gift cards which would cost you $5.95 in fees, in this case you’d profit an extra $11.975.

2. 5%/5x Cash Back Card

If you have a card that earns at a high rate on office supply stores you could do the following:

  • Purchase $200 giftcard with $6.95 fee (-$206.95)
  • Use a credit card that earns at least 5% cash back (+$10.3475)
  • Use a credit card that is enrolled in Visa savings edge to earn an additional 1% cash back (+$2.0695)
  • Receive $15 easy rebate (+$12.975 in cash)

In this situation you’d earn $18.442

I’ll probably grab a few giftcards next time I’m near a staples.

Does it look like it will be possible to get 1 rebate for MC, 1 for Visa and 1 for Amex per household or 1 rebate across all three?

I’m looking for this on various Amex Sync Channels, and am not finding it. Is it an offer that is only given to certain cardholders?

Is this only in store or is this online as well?

Went to staples today to take advantage of this offer. I asked for split tender ( i have 8 amex cards synched with this month staples deal). Cashier asked floor manager if they could do split tender on gift card purchase. Manager went to the back room to check the store policy, and came back saying that all GC have to be purchased in one transaction pay with one single gift card. I hate to have to come back 8 times to this shop. That the only staples in town. Any thoughts?
