Multiple readers report that new Staples Easy Rebate prepaid cards are now issued by Blackhawk and are PIN-enabled. The PIN is the last 4-digits of the card, same as all MetaBank cards.
[Update 5/19/16: Readers note that the PIN is no longer working.]
Previously, these cards were known not to work as a PIN-enabled debit, and the terms also mention that. (Since it is a rebate card, they likely don’t have the same legal obligations regarding PINs as for ordinary Visa gift cards.)
