staples mastercard gift card deal

Starting on Sunday 7/12/15, Staples is running a promotion (page 3) offering a $15 Staples gift card via rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards. This deal is slightly less generous as previous $20 rebates, but still ends up being profitable nonetheless.

The Deal

From 7/12/15 to 7/18/15 you can receive a $15 Staples gift card via Easy Rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard 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.

Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per household
  • Available in-store only

Can these be loaded to BB by going through the chase payment process? Thanks!

Yes that should work. They also work fairly easily at the kiosk if you have one available.

Local stapes is worthless, stopped by and they had exactly one of the $200 GC in stock, I think they pulled them off, they had 100’s a week ago, going to pass on this deal

I bought $400 (2 x $200) from my local staples in NYC yesterday. I’ve had the cards for more than 24 hours (the receipt says to allow 24 hours for activation), and they still have not activated. I called the mastercard phone reps a few times, and they said that the cards weren’t activated correctly on staples end, and that i could fax (ha) MC the receipt and some other info, and they would activate them for me.

Has this ever happened to anyone before? I hit these deals all the time and have never encountered this. total PITA.

This seems to have happened to quite a few people that bought cards yesterday.

Thanks for the quick reply, glad (but also not glad) that it isn’t just me. Any word on whether they will spontaneously activate, and if so, when? I guess it’s a moot point since I already faxed in all the info to have MC activate them, but just curious. Going out of country towards the end of the month and am hoping to load them to redbird before i go.

No. I think you did the right thing to get it fixed as quickly as possible. I have just had other people contact me today with the same issue. It seems like there was a problem with Staples’ system.

I had the same issue of gift cards not activating. I bought 2 cards, none active after 24hrs. Then 1 active after 36hrs, second card still not active.

This has never happened to me before with Staples so I did not see this coming. Call the number on the back, they ask to fax in a bunch of info and 7 to 10 day turnaround. I will wait another day to see if the second card will become active before faxing in.

Hopefully it works out but Staples really dropped the ball on this one.

I returned them to staples, they knew of the problem. Gave me new GC’s that were active.
