Staples will once again be offering fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards starting Sunday, September 29, 2019 through Saturday, October 5, 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 9/29/19 to 10/5/19
- Direct link to ad (see page 4)
- Limit 1 per customer (YMMV on whether or not your store will allow multiple)
- In-store only
While not as exciting as the days when these used to be offered as money-makers, this can nonetheless be an easy point-generator for Ink Cash or Ink Plus cardholders (note that the Ink Plus is no longer available to new applicants). The terms only officially allow for 1 offer 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 offers per store, earning 2K Ultimate Rewards in the process (since it makes the most sense to each buy two $200 VGCs). That would make this an attractive enough deal if we were passing a couple of stores.
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.
