At the store near me they don’t carry $300 gift cards it maxes out at $200.. so it wouldn’t really be worth it after all the $13 or so in card fees

It’s a shame that buying these GCs is “risky” due to fraud. Otherwise, if you have access to a few mailing addresses for the rebate, I would say it would be worth buying them for liquidation at the Post Office 4 cards at a time (assuming you have easy access to a “friendly” Post Office). But through in the risk of buying a hacked GC, and I’m not sure it’s worth the trouble.

I just dump them to Kiva when I get home and have had no problems.

Isn’t using Kiva a risk on its own?

For what its worth – most of this fraud has been in California. I went through 50 mastercards in the midwest and not a single one was compromised.

I recently went into my local Staples store (Rhode Island) and they had about thirty $200 VGCs in stock. Nearly all of them had the tabs covering the barcodes ripped off the packaging. Kinda shocking how clueless the store employees are. You’d have to be crazy to buy one of those.

Richmond VA here – with 10 hacked cards.

Not true. In mid-south and got hacked 3 times (master cards bought from OD)!

I recently had 4 hacked MC GCs purchased at Staples in OH – all the fraudulent transactions were done in CA (San Diego and Riverside counties), plus they all had a $2.00 charge from a Lowe’s in Illinois.

Chris

Same here- Cleveland Staples cards hacked by a CA (Riverside I think) immmediately… But the Reps fixed one before it was actually used ($2.00 PENDING Charge at Bloomingdales) – and the other one they refunded me on a DIFFERENT Pre Paid Debit Card mailed to me… Its amazingly easy to hack these apparently.

They don’t need to even guess last numbers because they are in the UPC exposed on the back of the package. Last number can be calculated with https://planetcalc.com/2464/
Next they load it to amazon because CVV is not required.

I am really surprised at all the ridiculous questions about using Staples GCs to buy other GCs. You have not been able to buy GCs with Staples GCs online ever. In-store it was very YMMV but the datapoints nowadays for succeeding with buy GCs with Staples GCs is like close to zero.

Sam
Sam

Why is it ridiculous if it was ymmv in stores?

Eric
Eric

Because its not really YMMV anymore in stores. It was only like very few datapoints to verify if the POS was hard coded to not accept staples GCs to buy 3rd party GCs. But in stores there are signs that clearly state that staples GCs cannot buy other 3rd party GCs.

The only reason why some datapoints were able to get it through was because they found some ignorant newbie that did not know the rules and was able to squeeze on by. If you think the success rate is like 90% then you are wrong. Feel free to try it out.

This PSA should be read by everyone considering this deal. Anything from US Bank is highly susceptible to fraud and theft
