New Staples Deal: Get a $20 Staples Gift Card with the Purchase of $300+ in Mastercard Gift Cards

staples gift card deal

Starting on Sunday 3/20/16, Staples is running a promotion (page 20) offering a $20 Staples store gift card via rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards. As a reminder, there is a similar Visa gift card promotion going on through Saturday as well.

The Deal

Buy $300 of MasterCard® Gift Cards and get a $20 Staples® Gift Card after easy rebate

The Rebate

The rebate is done completely online and the Staples gift card generally comes via U.S. mail within 4-6 weeks.

Key Terms

  • Valid 3/20/16–3/26/16.
  • Limit 1 per customer.
  • In store only.

Maximizing

Generally with these deals it is best to use a Chase Ink card to earn 5X Ultimate Rewards points or an Amex SimplyCash card to earn 5% cash back at Staples. Those with the recent Staples Amex Offer may wish to use their linked Amex card to earn 5% back as well.

Can you load Serve with these?

Yes. If you are doing it at the Walmart register it will initially register as a credit card, so you have to quickly hit the “change tender type” red button and tell it that the card is debit. At the kiosk it works fine and it should work fine at other stores such as Rite Aid or Family Dollar.

It’s a yellow “Change Payment” button on the terminal, not red (at least at the stores that I’ve been to).

Thanks. I haven’t had to do it in awhile and perhaps I got the color mixed up!

I haven’t been able to load MC GCs for a few months at the WM kiosks, even trying to load amounts below $50. So if kiosks are your preferred route, don’t go all in until you confirm they work for you.

Visa GCs work fine though for me.

Out of curiosity, can the rebate cards be sent to a PO Box. I doubt that they can but I want to see if anyone has had success sending them there.

Yes, rebate cards can be sent to PO Box. But Staples is wacky with some auto-correction of certain city names with matching zip codes, and sometimes the card is sent, according to Staples, but “never received” by PO. May require follow-up inquiry to rebate ctr if no card received after 30 days past send date. Can be a pain.

I could only find Mastercard $25 GCs at the nearest Staples. Doing the math that works out to 12 (12 X $25 = $300) times 4.99 activation fee – rounding off to $60. Gee, spend 60 to get 20 back? Wrong carrot to chase.

what is the rebate id?
the cashier gave me a duplicate receipt, so no rebate form no order number on it.

@Alan: should be the bar code number at the bottom of the receipt. Hopefully you have that. They usually print out 4 or 5 receipts – a lot of paper – when I purchase a rebate deal. And the bar code number is at the bottom of each. If you have that, go to stapleseasyrebates.com and enter your info.
