$20 rebate on $300 Visa Gift Cards + 5X

Through Saturday, August 12th, Staples is offering a $20 prepaid Visa rebate on the purchase of $300 or more in Visa Gift Cards in-store only.

The Deal

  • Get a $20 Visa prepaid card rebate by mail when you buy $300 or more in Visa Gift Cards in-store at Staples

Key Details

  • Valid until Saturday, August 12th, 2017
  • In-store only
  • One rebate per name/address/household

The Math

This week’s rebate is in the form of a prepaid Visa card by mail, which is PIN-enabled (the PIN is the last 4 digits).

To maximize rewards, you’ll want to buy two $200 gift cards. It will work out like this

Cost:
$413.90 (total cost for two $200 gift cards with activation fees)

Receive:
$420 
in Visa gift cards ($400 now and $20 by rebate)+ 2,069.5 Ultimate Rewards at 5X (with an Ink Cash or Ink Plus)

Conservatively valuing the Ultimate Rewards at 1.5 cents each (the rate at which they can be redeemed for travel if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve), the points are worth at least $31, but you may get quite a bit more value with transfer partners. Alternatively, you could use a card that earns 5% back at office supply stores and receive about $20.70 in cash back. See our guide to Best Category Bonuses for cards offering the best return at office supply stores.

These cards should be PIN-enabled (the PIN should be the last 4 digits of the card). See our Complete Guide to Staples Visa & Mastercard gift card deals for more information.
