Can this be combined and stacked with Staples coupons? Or will that invalidate the 16% Ebates cash back?

Any gift cards? I thought cash back did not work only on Visa

Even regular store gift cards won’t count for the cashback?
Usually for Cartera based portals, 3rd party giftcards count for the cashback.

ebates is not Cartera. I had some real bad experience not getting cashbacks on non-visa gc’s via ebates.

Was looking at purchasing some Lowe’s giftcards from there today anyway. Any idea of those qualify through eBates?

Oops, missed the line where it said probably not. Anyone have any first-hand experience to verify that?

Can I get the cashback if I pay for an item with a Staples gift card?

I wish this would work in store, haha.

I bought a Staples eGift card via the eBates portal and it did *not* register for cashback. Also note that if you put any gift card in your shopping card, even with other items, you can’t pay for the shopping cart, even partially, with a Staples Gift Card. So no double dip opportunities here. I don’t yet know if the staples eGift card will qualify for 5X Ink or not.

I wish I had known about this yesterday to take advantage of this 16X offer. I ordered $255 worth of lowes card over the weekend and today I got an email from Ebates confirming the cashback amount of $5.10 (i.e. 2%). If I had known that Ebates would be paying for Lowes GC purchases, then I would have bought some yesterday resulting in awesome 16% CB.

I made 3 separate orders of $255 each. So, I’m hoping the other two orders will earn 2% CB as well.

So, it appears Ebates is paying out on 3rd party GCs and this is good news !!!

You don’t say who you bought the Lowe’s cards from. What online storefront?

I think it’s pretty common knowledge that Staples had Lowe’s GCs available for $85 (for a $100) card, up to 3 per person. 🙂

Also, you can buy Lowe’s gift cards at a discount various places, more than 2% off. Seems unlikely the 2% Ebates cashback is compensation enough.
