[Expired] Staples: Buy $300 in Visa or Mastercard Gift Cards and get $15 *Visa* Prepaid Card [9/3-9/9]

Update: Now live. Seems like this rebate will come as a $15 prepaid Visa card, as per the rebate form (search Blackhawk) as well as a picture from the store (shown below). That’s different than what’s advertised in the circular that it’ll come as a Staples gift card.

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Buy $300 in Visa or Mastercard gift cards at a Staples store and get a $15 Staples gift card via Easy Rebate

The Fine Print

  • Valid 9/3/17 – 9/9/17 (starts Sunday, 9/3)
  • Limit one per household
  • In-store only

Our Verdict

You guys know what to do. Interesting that they made this one valid on both Visa and Mastercards, I don’t recall that happening before.

    Boo staples reward card instead of visa. Thanks for the heads up tho.

  2. Anse says:

    What we need to do is to avoid this type of deal. If a lot of people use this promotion, then we will rarely see $20 visa again. I only buy visa or mc gift cards if staples give $20 in visa or staples gc rewards.

  3. Joe W says:

    Staple reward visa can be used toward future online visa GC purchase on, am i right?

  4. CtownBin says:

    Huh, this is strange. Usually, when you buy Visas, the rebate is a Visa GC, and when you buy MC, you get a Staples GC. The fact that they combined the 2 and are giving Staples GC gives me a bad feeling they may be moving away from giving Visa GCs as rebates. Hope not!

  5. HardTacoKit says:

    Is this one valid in Vermont. The one this week is NOT valid in Vermont.

  6. dave says:

    C’mon OD what are you waiting on?

  7. AD says:

    Can I use the Staples gift card towards an in store Visa gift card purchase?

  8. Joe says:

    In the past I exclusively used the Visa deals where you received a rebate Visa GC too.
    Need to get to some min spend requirements now though.

    what is the best way to liquidate the Staples GC you receive (without actually buying office products, duh)…?


    • Lantean says:

      actually the best way to liquidate Staples gift cards is buying FASER office products… mostly paper.

    • Chris says:

      Can use Saveya to sell it immediately. I think you’ll get back like 12+ bucks for a $15 GC.

      I haven’t used Saveya but have seen some mixed reviews. I’m sure Doc in his infinite of wisdom has a review/commentary on here

      • Tom says:

        Okay, just an idea….why not buy paper at Staples with the gift card when they run a rebate deal? I think I recently only paid 25 cents for ream of paper after the rebate. I think tax has to be factored in as well but still seems to be a GREAT idea and get most of the cash back.

  9. Ron says:

    I liquidate the in-store Staples gift card by donating them to the kids’ schools for the teachers to buy supplies and items for the classroom.

  10. RightNYer says:

    Given that Staples matches prices, I don’t have a hard time using these.

  11. Albert H says:

    Is this a weekly thing now? haha.

  12. LK says:

    They have done this combo rebate before, usually around holidays

  13. Gerald says:

    You can liquidate Staples gift cards online for 83%, so a $15 card will get you $12.45. Since the fee on two $200 cards is $13.90, you’ll get 2069 UR points for $1.45, or about 0.07 cents each.

  14. James says:

    Is the rebate a Staples gift card or Staples Visa gift card? The ad and the actual rebate link are different

  15. Max says:

    Ad and in store sign at my store says staples gift card, but the rebate printed out and says visa. Hurray!

  16. ppsh says:

    Stacking with BOA 10% cashback which expires on 9/23 for me. Did split tender, putting $110 on BOA personal CC (only $11 back, max) and the rest on BOA Biz CC (only 3%; way over 5/24 for CSR/CSP and don’t want to burn an HP for the targeted Amex Blue Biz Plus which has a $200 statement credit after $3k spend).

  17. Information Booth says:

    OK, something weird happened today. Went into Staples to buy GC’s and noticed the sign said $15 rebate, but also said it is a $20 savings. Inquired as to what that meant and nobody in store could figure it out. GM will call with answer tomorrow. Will post with answer.

  18. Chris says:

    Has anyone sent in the rebate on this? Has it been linking to Staples GC or a Visa GC? Just looking for a DP. Thanks!

  19. JASON says:

    Hello DOC, is the title misleading? Says VISA but clicked on the link it points out it’s the staple gift card not the VISA we know about.

    • Tom says:

      Jason, read the two posts above yours and you will understand that this was advertised as a Staples GC but the rebate says it is a Visa gift card. That is why DOC said: *VISA*

  20. ppd says:

    Rebate GC in the mail already.

  21. Kumar says:

    Anyone in Morristown NJ area, know areas to liquidate VISA gift cards. Walmarts around me are asking for the card when I ask for money order and one stop & shop grocery store too. Appreciate if anyone can help in NJ area where to liquidate them.
