Staples Now Selling $300 Visa Gift Cards Online With $8.95 In Fees
Staples.com is now selling $300 Visa gift cards online, the card comes with the following fees:
- $7.95 in purchase fees
- $1 in shipping/handling fees
I don’t know of any way to get the $1 shipping fee removed, so it’s basically just a fee of $8.95. Let’s look at your cost per point compared to the $100 and $200 cards, assuming you’re using a card that earns 5x at Office Supply Stores.
- $100 gift card costs $6.95 in fees and will earn 534.75 points or a cost of 1.30¢ per point
- $200 gift card costs $6.95 in fees and will earn 1034.75 points or a cost of 0.671¢ per point
- $300 gift card costs $8.95 in fees an will earn 1544.75 points or 0.579¢ per point
The fee on the $300 card is basically 3% of the card value compared to 3.5% on the $200 cards. This is awesome news for anybody that manufactured spends at Staples.
