[Expired] Staples: Purchase $200 Visa Giftcard, Save $5 (12/16-/12/22)

Deal has expired, view more Staples deals by clicking here.

The Offer

  • Staples is offering a $5 instant discount when you purchase a $200 Visa gift card

The Fine Print

  • Valid from 12/16 until 12/22
  • Limit 1 per customer
  • In store only

Our Verdict

Make sure to use a credit card that earns at a high rate on office supply store purchases. Not as good as the fee free offers they have had recently, but certainly not going to complain. The limit 1 per customer is only sort of enforced in that they won’t do more than one in the same transaction and some stores will prevent you from purchasing again if they know you’ve purchased before but that is obviously YMMV and not hardcoded. Update: Reports indicate you can do more than one in a single transaction.

Ugh a day after the Chase Pay offer is expired.

I still see the chase offer for staples on the app. It says it expires tomorrow. Is there any way to link the offer to my CIC or is that something to do with split tender when paying?

Gerald

AFAIK there are no Chase offers on Ink. 1000 points (using Ink) is better than $6 plus 300 points (using the Chase offer on Freedom Unlimited.

Stacking w/ Apple Pay is $6 plus 500 UR w/ CFU vs 1,000 UR w/ Ink. But if Chase offer expires tomorrow, or goal is to transfer UR to CSP and redeem at 1.25X, then Ink remains better.

Chase Offers is showing me 10% back at Staples (up to $6) on my Sapphire Reserve through Dec. 31. Will this offer be triggered if I use my card through Google Pay? Or do I need to swipe the physical card? I’d certainly prefer to get the extra 1X back. I’m worried the purchase will code as Google Pay rather than as the merchant.

Check your app again. Mine has been extended and I now have 17 days to use the staples offer.

Same here. Not bad to use for one card.

Ouch…these offers are getting worse and worse.

For a while they were doing a $15 Staples gift card rebate for $300 worth of VGCs. I’d rather pay $1.95 for 1000 points.

Derek

Resell on that GC was almost $13. Making the Staples GC deal almost BE with the rebate. Now we pay for our points 🙁

Lantean

Right, but you have to buy $300 in Visa GC… so $13- $14 in fees.
Considering the time and risk involved in reselling Staples GC I think this a better deal.

Tony

So its indicate there are more people in the game.If we continue to buy it, they might lower the offer in future.

This is similar to current week’s deal at OD/OM where you buy $300 worth MCGS and get $10 off. Same thing with the Staples deal except it’s a VGC and not hack prone.

Dan
Dan

not worth it!

Nate

Confused here, is it 5/ 200 vgc or 5 per transactions. Could we do 1k all at once and have 25 subtracted automatically from fees or have to do 5 200 vcg individually for the discount?

Joe

Says limit 1 per customer, but I’ve heard of people having luck getting multiple discounts in a single transaction before.

Can you stack these with the debit card offers many banks and credit unions offer?

NinjaX

thats my boy! thank you staples for stepping that shit up. i know you saw OD and wanted to bring out your dong to compete. nice move. but like prior months, i know what OD may do. they may also bust out visa promo during the same week right after their hack attack MCs. its fucking Mortal Kombat at that point.

Steve

Thanks for being a class act.

NinjaX — it appears you nailed it for this week too…. OD apparently has an undervertised $15 off $300 of VGC’s in store this week ! Bravo.

My Amex statement always show details like 200$ gift card with $6.95 fee when I shop at staples, so my answer is yes to your question

Some from reddit has confirmed that again multiples are working in a single transaction.

Chuck

Nice, I’ll update.

Just went and bought 5. Can personally confirm multiples working in a single transaction. P2 just got CIC and I was waiting to meet the min spending.

Also Stack with BofA

BankAmeriDeals on some cards 10% back at Staples thru 12/18 upto $6, So $21-$29 possible with Bonus coin dealsBofA Coins top tier.

Obviously not as good as 5X on Ink but you’ve maxed your annual limit on CIC otherwise the Ink Cash is a net $262 cost on $300 (CSR 1.5X base multiplier).

PSA: Some times you can get re-targeted on deals or new deals by changing your Zip code to a different region of country by changing home zip code in BofA deals sub menu: Preferences (also need to make sure location awareness is off (DEALS NEAR ME = Deny permission).

I am seeing Chase offers on my personal cards but nothing on Ink Cash or Ink BP. Do other see offers on business cards?

Gerald
Gerald

No, it seems that Chase Offers are only on personal cards.

Keep trying, deal hasn’t expired in Salisbury MD.

I just did a five card purchase and received the $5 discount five times in a single transaction.
Sales clerk told me daily max was 2K
