  1. My girlfriend got the Home Depot and Total Wine offers on her BCP, PRG, and SPG personal cards. She did not get it on her SPG Business card. None of the cards got the Staples offer. I did not receive any of them on any of my business or personal cards…

  2. I seem to have the Home Depot offer on a bunch of my AMEX cards. I haven’t seen the Staples offer yet, but I haven’t looked through all my cards.

    That said, is there really anything “to see” here? Most of us already get 5x Ultimate Rewards points at Staples, so what does this Staples offer do? I guess it would be like 6x, when you count in the regular rewards (typically 1x) that most AMEX cards have. I suppose this might be somewhat appealing if Staples happens to do an in-store rebate deal during the promo period, but I don’t see how it’s appreciably better than just using your Ink card.

    Likewise 5% back at Home Depot also seems like a yawner. Yes, if I were making a large HD purchase, I’d certainly register and use the card, but I don’t see a “gift card deal” with 5x at HD. Am I missing something?

    • indeed, for those of us with far more valuable 5x CUR points from chase ink, this is a ho hum non-starter….. Same thing, for different reasons to me anyway, for the HD 5% so and so…. get HD gift cards for 20% off and more via other means…. (e.g., kroger via 4x promos)

      but for amex fans, there ya go.

  3. I got only the Staples 5% for $200 or more up to $5,000 on my business SPG Amex. But a dilemma as I would have to give up purchasing with an Ink card which gives 5x points. The 5x worth more than the 5% so the offer, while good, not as good in overall value as using the Ink cards. Of course the 5% is cash back versus points with Ink. Personal preference would rule in this decision.

    • Also, if you were planning to max out your Ink already, this gives you an extra $5k worth of bonus spending. Not as good as 5x UR, but better than 1x UR after 50k spent on Ink.

    • Don’t forget you’s also get the miles/points on the purchase: say $2000 spend on SPG card gets 2000 SPG points plus $100 instead of 10000 UR.

  4. This one was extremely limited. Either it’s already gone (got enough people to add it within minutes) or they were very selective. Not found on any cards we have. I would’ve gladly used either HD or ST. 🙁

    • I do not know this answer, but I would also be very interested if anyone tries it. The language in the terms exclude gift card purchases, but this is often not enforced.

  5. Got the offer for Home Depot on three personal cards, but not on any business cards. My offers, however, were for a max of $2000 in total purchases.
    Didn’t get the Staples offer on any cards.

  6. Seeking clarification:

    Got the Staples 5% on $200+ on our Simply Cash; does it stack with the 5% CB that card gets at office supply for a total of 10% CB?

    And speaking of Simply Cash, do you have any info on the new Simply Cash Plus card?

  7. Got Home Depot 5% up to $100 statement credit on purchase $100+ on Platinum, Everyday, Old Blue Cash, SPG, all personal cards, non on business cards.

  8. Home Depot on all of my personal cards, Everyday, Surpass, Ameriprise, Blue Cash.

    5% up to $2K on each one. Wish I had gotten Staples, since I don’t have an Ink card, but I guess I was too late to the party.

    If you have more than one cc on a single webpage, remember to open a page for each card before you click “add to card”, otherwise the offer will disappear from the other cards.

  9. I have staples offer on my simply cash card, can I use it multiple times in store? Staples only allow me to buy $2000 per day.

    • As far as I understand it you can get the 5% credit for multiple transactions, however each transaction has to be $200 or more.
