Staples $20 rebate on $300 MasterCard gift cards

Valid 10/12 through 10/18/2014

Starting Sunday, Staples is once again offering a $20 rebate (in the form of a Visa Staples gift card) for purchasing $300 or more worth of MasterCard gift cards at Staples.  This is most likely an in-store only deal.

Staples-Gift-Cards

To get the most from this deal, use a Chase Ink Visa card and enroll it in the Visa Savings Edge program.  The Chase Ink card will give you 5 points per dollar, and the Visa Savings Edge program will kick back 1% cash to your credit card statement.

I recommend buying either one $200 card and one $100 card or two $200 cards for this promotion.  The $200 MasterCard gift cards have a $6.95 fee whereas the $100 cards have a $5.95 fee.

Can you pull the cash out at an ATM?

I have had no luck at all at Walmart M/C or Visa versions to load to Bluebird or buy money orders.
They used to work fine but it’s a no go at Kiosk, cashier or customer service.
Any words of advice on where to unload?

Bad luck!! Don’t have Staples within the 50 mile radius near my place

Are you sure this rebate is in the form of a VGC? Usually with the MC deals it’s an actual Staples GC (which is what the ad shows)…

The $20 Visa gift card rebates we got in the past were nice. I have a few of them. But a $20 Staples gift card is meh. I still have $400 to go before completing my Amazon Payments forever, and I was planning on buying $400 in Visa gift cards at Staples today. I would’ve held off and bought the MC on Sunday (10/12) instead had the rebate been Visa gift cards, but I don’t think I’ll deviate from my orignal plan for this deal.

Thanks for the heads up Greg, here is a pic from Staples online catalog for next week: http://i60.tinypic.com/2ntcje8.png

The deal is only valid in-store since Staples.com only sells Visa GCs, not MasterCard GCs online.

Can you use these (since they are pin enabled) to load SERVE (debit) online?

I have never been able to use MC gift cards to load Bluebird or Serve at Walmart, either at kiosk, cashier, or money center. Has anyone been able to do so recently? I’m aware of the old “trick” to quickly punch the red or yellow button, but that never worked for me either).

I’ve never had problems loading MC GCs @ the kiosk, including several in the past week. These were Metabank cards.

Had no problem loading the Mastercards you buy at Staples via the Kiosk at least as of 2 weeks ago. Humans are another matter. M/C GC are different than the Visa GC in that the PIN is not the last 4 digits. Either they supply the PIN inside the envelope or you call and set a pin. If you mess up on the PIN it’s not the card’s fault or the Kiosk. So make sure you know what you are doing before hitting WM. I have only used MC from Staples. Drug store MC’s may not work any longer at WM.

Can the MC gift card be loaded via Amazon payment? I have not loaded for this month and I believe AP ends on the 13th.

Kent C

Haven’t tried. Good question. If you do try you’ll have 2 days max, since the offer starts on the 12th.

Can these be unloaded via Evolve?

For me, it’s not about profit, it’s about the points. Buy 4 – $200 MC = $827.80 minus 1% back with Visa Savings Edge = $819.52 minus $20 Staples gift card = $799.52. 4139 UR points earned.

Here’s how I’m looking at this. 1,500 UR points plus $20 (less purchase fees) is a no brainer. I may hit the three staples in my area to get this, turn around and buy some toner, and then I’m on my way to some Staples rewards when those toners run out. If I can unload via Evolve, great. If not, I’ll sacrifice some other point opps for the UR opp.

I bought the cards today and no rebate form printed. This is a first time for me, because I always do these rebates. Also if you look up the rebate online there’s a printed form to be mailed in. It is NOT an easy rebate.

Oops. I take back the second part. Although the rebate form did not print I was able to submit it online after all. I didn’t realize how it worked when you have to manually look up rebate numbers.

[…] offer is in-store only.  If you hurry, you can double dip by buying MasterCard gift cards with this rebate offer (through 10/18).  Or, buy other gift cards […]

[…] to get in on the current different but similar offer requiring purchasing MasterCard gift cards: Staples $20 rebate on $300 MasterCard gift cards.  These are different rebates, so you can do the MasterCard deal first then do the Visa deal […]
