Update: Staples will once again be offering fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards starting Sunday, August 30, 2020 through Saturday, September 5, 2020. The ad states five per customer per day, which seems to be the new limit.

The Deal

  • Staples will waive the $6.95 activation fee when you buy a $200 Visa Gift Card from 8/30/20 to 9/5/20
  • Direct link to ad (see page 8 of next week’s ad)

Key Terms

  • Limit 5 per customer per day (YMMV on whether your cashier / store follows the ad)
  • In-store only

Quick Thoughts

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).

In my case, my wife is an AU on my Ink Plus card, so if we were going to a store, we could each pick up 5 fee-free $200 gift cards per store, earning 10K Ultimate Rewards in the process ($2000 in gift cards x 5 = 10,000 points). That would certainly make this an attractive enough deal during normal times. That said, my liquidation routine has severely slowed given COVID-19, so I probably won’t be going to a store for this deal.

Overall, this is an easy way to generate some points without cost on this end of the deal if you’re going to Staples. Remember that this does not start until Sunday and it is in-store only.
