Staples.com is selling $100 Mastercard gift cards for $101.95 – a discount of $5 off the activation fee for online orders.
Note that this offer is only available for Staples Plus members, a membership which costs $49 per year.
Edit: As per a comment below, it appears that this offer is open to everyone, not just those with a Staples Plus membership.
- Buy $100 Mastercard gift card on Staples.com for $101.95.
- Direct link (but try using a cashback portal).
- Limit 3.
- Expires August 4, 2018.
Staples Plus membership required – costs $49 per year.
- Online only.
This is a good discount on activation fees as the $100 Mastercard gift cards usually come with a $6.95 activation fee.
As noted in the Key Terms above though, this discount is only available to Staples Plus members – a membership that costs $49.
If you or your business has a Staples Plus membership, buying the limit of three Mastercard gift cards will save you $15 in activation fees. If you have the Staples Amex Offer for 10% off at Staples, you’ll end up with $300 of gift cards for only $275.27 – much better savings than this week’s Office Depot Visa gift card sale. Alternatively, pay with a Chase Ink card to earn 1,529 Ultimate Rewards which will more than offset the $5.85 in activation fees.
It’s not worth buying the $49 membership solely for this deal, but Staples Plus offers member pricing on five items of your choice. If you regularly purchase the same office supplies from Staples, that membership fee could pay for itself pretty quickly, making this Mastercard gift card deal more worthwhile.
