  1. Can you buy other gift cards, online or in-store, with a Staples egift card? I don’t MS, or have any use for $400 in Staples merchandise, but I would use many of the gift cards they sell.

  2. Shawn, thanks for the tip! Great find as always.

    Something weird happened: I could not use my Ebay eGift card redemption codes to pay for these Staples GC. Always worked in the past, but I had to delete all redemption codes and pay with a CC (through Paypal) for it to go through. Paypal kept saying that it couldn’t proceed with the chosen payment method.

    Just a weird hiccup you think?

    • Happened with me also now. I was assuming that they are cracking down on MS (both mine and my wife’s account have this issue). Interestingly, I was able to get one Staples GC through ebay GC, but I still have not received Staples GC. So maybe they could cancel that also!

  3. I’m not able to pay with ANY credit card in my PayPal account. I keep getting an error message: “This credit card cannot be used at this time. Please select another payment method.” Wondering if this is widespread or just my account. Perhaps related to Jeff’s comment above mine?

    • I am having the same issue. I have heard of others who have had problems in the past with certain deals as well. There doesn’t seem to be a fix either unfortunately.

      • Thanks, Shawn…that’s reassuring (not just my account), although frustrating. I Googled the issue and didn’t come up with anything, so it seems you’re right — we’re destined to miss this one šŸ™

  4. Thanks for the heads up! In for two. No 4X on eBay purchases, but did get the 1.2%, 2X eBay cash back, and hopefully 5X on points with Ink. Thanks again!!!
