15% back at Staples (5/9 only) and 400+ other stores this week

Ebates is offering 15% or more back at more than 400 stores this week. Wednesday, 5/9/18 only, that list includes Staples.com. Paired with 5x from a card like the Chase Ink Cash or another card that earns one of the Best category bonuses at office supply stores, that could make for good savings at Staples today.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Promotion runs this week, but some stores rotate each day while others may stay at 15% throughout the week
  • Note key restrictions on individual store pages, but see our Laboratory to see what works in actual experience

Quick Thoughts

As always, check rates at CashBackMonitor.com to make sure that you are getting a competitive rate. As noted above, some stores will be at increased rates all week, but others are valid for a limited-time only. One that stands out today (Wednesday, May 9th) is Staples.com. Getting 15% back at Staples is a rare opportunity. As you can see via the CashBackMonitor 15-month historical chart, the payout has only reached this level one time in the past 15 months (one year ago — May 8-9, 2017).

Since you could shop through a portal and use a card like the Chase Ink Cash to pay, you could earn 5x Ultimate Rewards points on top of 15% back. If you value Ultimate Rewards over a penny each, your net return at Staples makes this a great deal. While portal terms usually exclude the purchase of gift cards, see our Laboratory for results from those who have experimented.

Anyone know if shopping at staples.com for gift cards using Ink and/or Simply Cash will work to get the 5 times or 5% cash back?

Hmm, to buy a $300+$8.95 VGC or not to buy.
