Following the recent Staples promotion offering Mastercard gift cards with no activation fee, they have a new offer out today on Visa gift cards.
- No purchase fee (normally $6.95) when you buy a $200 Visa gift card.
- Valid May 6, 2018 to May 12, 2018
- In store only
- Limit 1 per customer
These Visa gift cards with no activation fee are a great way to rack up spending on cards offering 5x / 5% at office supply stores. That includes Chase Ink Plus (5x Ultimate Rewards), Chase Ink Cash and American Express SimplyCash Plus Business credit cards (both 5% cashback).
Regarding the latter card though, Doctor of Credit has reported recently that the SimplyCash Plus Business card might not be earning 5% on gift card purchases from Staples or Office Depot/Office Max. If you have one of the above listed Chase Ink cards, it’d probably be better to use one of those.
The limit’s one per customer, although there are ways round that limit. Visiting on different days, visiting multiple stores or having a friendly cashier can all help you rack up more 5x / 5% spend.
