Staples will once again be offering fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards starting Sunday, January 12, 2019 through Saturday, January 18, 2019. The ad states one per customer – YMMV as to whether or not a cashier will allow more than one.
- Staples will waive the $6.95 activation fee when you buy a $200 Visa Gift Card from 1/12/20 to 1/18/20
- Direct link to ad (see page 2 of next week’s ad)
- Limit 1 per customer (YMMV on whether or not your store will allow multiple)
- In-store only
This can be an easy point-generator for Ink Cash or Ink Plus cardholders (note that the Ink Plus is no longer available to new applicants). There’s also a current Chase offer that has returned for some targeted cardholders and is good for 5-25% back (the amount and cap vary). Keep in mind that Chase offers work only 1 time, they do not work over cumulative separate purchases.
In my case, my wife is an AU on my Ink Plus card, so I know we could at least pick up 2 fee-free $200 gift cards per store, earning 2K Ultimate Rewards in the process ($400 in gift cards x 5 = 2,000 points). That would make this an attractive enough deal if we were passing a couple of stores. The good news is that we will be near a Staples this time around and I intend to take advantage of this deal to pick up some easy points.
Overall, this is an easy way to generate some points without cost on this end of the deal. Remember that this does not start until Sunday and it is in-store only.
