Staples will be offering fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards starting tomorrow – Sunday, September 2nd, 2018 through Saturday, September 8, 2018. The add states one per customer – YMMV as to whether or not a cashier will allow more than one purchase.

The Deal

  • Staples will waive the $6.95 activation fee when you buy a $200 Visa Gift Card from 9/2/18 to 9/8/18
  • Direct link to ad (see page 5)

Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per customer (really per transaction, YMMV on whether or not your store will allow separate transactions)
  • In-store only

Quick Thoughts

While obviously not as nice as past promotions for negative-cost Visa Gift Cards, this can nonetheless be an easy point-generator for Ink Cash or Ink Plus cardholders (note the Ink Plus is no longer available to new applicants). Note that the terms only allow for 1 per customer. In my case, my wife is an AU on my Ink Plus card, so I know we could at least pick up 2 per store, earning 2K Ultimate Rewards in the process. That would make this an attractive enough deal if we were passing a couple of stores.

Those with the Amex Offer for 10% back at Staples on business cards should be sure not to use that offer for more than $1K in cumulative Staples purchases across all of your cards as Amex is clawing back statement credits (See: Ouch: Amex clawing back Amex Offers credits). I know that many readers have likely already felt the pain on that, but thought it was worth mentioning here for anyone who missed that post and may have intended to use that offer with this deal.
