Staples.com is offering fee-free $100 Mastercard Gift Cards right now. The maximum order may be 10 cards. A reader reports a previous successful order for a quantity of 10 when this unannounced promotion happened recently, though YMMV as to how Staples enforces limits.
- Staples.com is offering fee-free $100 Mastercard gift cards (online only)
- Direct link to this deal
- Limit of 10 (note that I do not see this limit on the site, but a reader reports the limit was 10 during the most recent sale and that they successfully ordered 10 this time. YMMV)
As noted under the key terms, I don’t actually see the limit expressly written on the product page. They have run this and other similar promotions previously. For example, Stephen posted a similar deal last August, but the limit was 3. YMMV as to the limit – feel free to share any contrary reader reports in the comments. I did successfully place an order for 10, though we’ll see if it ships. Note that the estimated delivery date is more than 2 weeks away.
Speaking of reader reports, several readers have reported that these cards can be a pain to activate (sometimes requiring multiple phone calls). Keep in mind that Mastercard gift cards have been known to be more susceptible to fraudulent draining and they can be harder to liquidate. That said, if you have a system for these, fee-free is a nice deal. That is especially true if you’re paying with a card that earns one of the Best Category Bonuses at office supply stores. For example, you’d earn 5x Ultimate Rewards if paying with a Chase Ink Cash card. If you are able to buy ten of these cards, that’s an easy 5,000 UR points.
