Staples is running another deal on Visa gift cards starting on Sunday. We’re playing it fast and loose with the term “deal” though because it’s nowhere near as good as their semi-regular deals waiving the activation fee on $200 Visa gift cards.
- Buy $100 Visa gift cards at Staples and save $3 off the activation fee.
- Offer valid September 13-19, 2020.
- In-store only.
I don’t think I’ve ever bought a $100 Visa gift card from Staples, but I think they come with a $5.95 activation fee. If that’s the case, you’d be paying a $2.95 activation fee which for most people isn’t going to be worth the cost, time or effort even when paying with a 5x card, especially when taking into account potential liquidation costs.
It seems a strange promotion to run as I doubt there will be many takers for this. Staples appears to realize this and so hasn’t listed any kind of limit as to how many you can buy.
