$200 Visa gift cards now available online at Staples.com!

Staples has long offered $100 Visa gift cards online, but with a $6.95 fee.  Now, they are offering $200 Visa gift cards for the same $6.95 fee!

How to maximize this deal:

  1. Use a Visa business card that earns 5X at office supply stores (e.g. Chase Ink Plus, Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Cash)
  2. Enroll your card in the Visa Savings Edge program for 1% back on purchases of $200 or more at Staples.
  3. Shop through an online portal to Staples.  Find the best deals here.

These Visa gift cards can be used for everyday spend, of course.  Alternatively, use them to reload Serve or Bluebird at Walmart.  Or, better yet, use them to pay bills online for free.

Is there a limit to how many can be purchased online at a time?

Not that I’m aware of

I purchased 15 for 3k plus and received a very polite call from a Staples CSR informing me that as per government regulations, each order cannot exceed $2k (excluding fees and other items such as office stationery).

Thanks, good to know!
To the original question: Yes, there is a 10 item per order limit for $200 gift cards.

Too bad those of us with Ink MasterCards won’t be able to take advantage of the 1%…

Keep in mind that the Visa version of those cards are considered new products so it is possible to get the signup bonus again even if you have the mastercard version already.

Yeah, I’m aware of that tidbit. Just not aware that it’s been 100% confirmed that people have received the bonus on a Visa Ink Bold if they previously had a MC Ink Bold. I assume that’s the case, however? June is the time my annual fee is due, so I’m due to get a new card anyway…

Yes, confirmed. I did it myself and got the bonus.

Would it be considered as cash advance if we buy visa gift cards at Staples.com with a Citi card? Thanks.

Frequent Miler

No, that would be safe.

Can anybody confirm that Shop Discover portal gives the 5% cash back if you don’t use your Disover Card?

Has anyone confirmed that TopCashBack or SwagBucks provides cashback for gift card purchases?

Shop Discover terms for Staples state no cash back on gift cards. Has anybody got cash back confirmed from Discover?

Frequent Miler

I have in the past, but be careful: a few readers have said that Discover has taken back their cashback when they didn’t pay with Discover (hasn’t happened to me yet)

FM:

Somewhat related question: I have the Chase MasterCard versions of Ink and Bold. If I get the Visa versions, will I qualify for a new signup bonus? If not, do just request the new Visa vesion from Cahse to replace the MC vesion?
Thanks.

Frequent Miler

Yes, if you sign up and are approved for the Visa version you will get a new signup bonus.

After waiting several days, my purchase is finally pending on topcashback website for one card.
