(EXPIRED) Staples: $5 off a $200 VGC [12/16 to 12/22]

Staples will be offering $5 off when you buy a $200 Visa Gift Card next week (12/16 to 12/22/18). This is a comparatively weak promotion, but those with a card that earns one of the Best Category Bonuses at office supply stores can still come out well ahead, especially if they are able to buy more than one (though terms limit this to one per customer).

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per customer
  • In-store only

Quick Thoughts

This isn’t nearly as good as past promotions, but you can still come out ahead if you’re using a card that earns 5x/5% back. The usual fee on most $200 Visa Gift Cards is $6.95. After the discount, you’ll pay $1.95 and earn either 1,010 Ultimate Rewards points or $10.10 cash back, a pretty clear win either way….albeit much less of a win than past money-maker promotions. Whether or not you’ll be able to do more than one will likely vary by store.
