Staples hasn’t noted a specific limit for how many of these fee-free Mastercard gift cards you can buy. However, there appears to be a limit of 10 per customer based on the discount that’s applied in your basket. If you add more than 10 of these cards, you’ll see that a maximum discount of $69.50 is given. The fee on these cards is usually $6.95, hence the limit of 10 per customer.
There are a couple of ways to save even more with this deal. The 30% Chase Offer for Staples ends in a couple of days, although with a limit of $19 cashback you’ll effectively only get a discount on the first card you buy.
A better deal would be to take advantage of the Staples Amex Offer for 10% back. There’s a limit of $50 back, but if both you and a partner have the offer loaded to a card, you could buy $1,000 worth of Mastercard gift cards for a net cost of $900 by placing two orders with five cards in each order.
A couple of important things to be aware of before jumping on this deal. First, some readers have experienced issues with drained cards when buying Mastercard gift cards in the past from Staples. Second, these cards require activation before they can be used. The activation details come in a separate envelope, so you have to wait for that in order to activate the cards.
Gift card purchases are excluded from earning cashback through portals, but click through from a shopping portal anyway just in case the purchase(s) track.
