staples gift card rebate

Starting on Sunday 12/6/15, Staples is running a promotion (page 3) offering a $20 Staples gift card via rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Visa, Mastercard or American Express gift cards.

The Deal

From 12/6/15 to 12/12/15 you can receive a $20 Staples gift card via Easy Rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Visa, Mastercard or American Express gift cards.

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. The American Express gift cards aren’t pin-enabled, so it is probably better to stick to Visa or Mastercard gift cards.

Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per household
  • In-store only most likely. All past deals have been in-store only. The rebate form isn’t up yet to confirm.

yes indeed thanks for the alert. Curious they’re including visa, mc, and amex all in the same week this time. Given that they’ve changed which cards are included, I’m wondering too if they’ll be permitting on-line purchases to count, esp. for the $300 visa.

Yet a different question about the Staples Gift card. Until the last time around, we’d receive the Staples Visa debit card. (which could be used anywhere) Yet can these Staples Rebate cards (w/o the visa ) be used anywhere else besides Staples? (and for anything else but “real” merchandise?….. hmmmmm )


I’ve put $1800 on one of my Ink’s at and $300 on both of my Ink cards at Office Max this past month. Only other purchases at office stores were for ink and paper. Do you think it would be ok to add another $300 to each Ink?


I bought $300 of US Bank Mastercard gift cards from Staples. I used my Amex card to cover part of it to redeem the Amex offer for $20 off $100 at Staples.

Frustratingly, these cards can’t be loaded to Bluebird, a repeat of the US Bank Visa gift card I recently purchased at Kroger (when they had the fee free coupon). Tender not allowed error. Another commenter said they had success when they tried a different Walmart. That’s what I’ll try next, but I don’t have much hope.

More frustratingly, it looks like the Amex offer didn’t work. I got an email stating I will get an account credit if my purchase qualifies. Under the details at my Amex account it shows exactly what I purchased at Staples! (Thought they couldn’t see that?) Pretty sure gift cards don’t qualify, and it’s been two days with no credit, when usually it is automatic.


I had a similar encounter today. Did you try to purchase the Bluebird card in the same transaction with the gift cards? I was told that was my problem. Buy the Bluebird with cash first, then load it after.


No, I already had bluebird and I have loaded it successfully with gift cards before. I’m pretty sure the only GC’s I’ve tried have either been issued by Metabank or US bank. My experience is Metabank cards always load, but US Bank cards never have.
