Staples B&M 1/13-19: Fee Free $200 Visa GC and $15 off $75 in store Q valid to 1/19


  • Global Moderator

    Visa prepaid $200 no fee, limit 1 per transaction (customer) but can go to multiple stores, hit the same store a few times same week.

    Great for people trying to earn a spend bonus on new credit cards or 5-10% back on various offers out there.

  • thanks for the alert
    VCG no fee MM with Chase Ink CC 5% cash back

    There is a recent Am Ex offer out there giving 10% cash back at Staples up to $50 (can be multiple purchases). So if you get two $200 cards it would be a $40 MM with the offer, or 3 $200 cards would max out the offer and be a $50 MM. Easy money there.

    Store limit is $2K per customer/day.
    Its not specific to gc. If you buy e.g. $2K in any merchandise they have to notify LP.
    My store is fine w/ selling me $1,800 in 9 back to back transactions but not 10.

    Be careful there. I don’t have the offer so can’t verify but others state GCs are disallowed and Amex can determine the nature of the purchase. YMMV

    The Am Ex offer just excludes gift cards in bulk rate purchases, so it should work on these. It has been my experience that almost all Am Ex offers work on gift cards.

    in store only.



  • I can attest that 500.00 VGC on Amex cards get the 5% back on certain blue cash and the new gold card. been doing this for 4 years…very lucrative even with fees. HOWEVER… Staples and Office max report level 3 data on purchase at their stores. Means that the charges are itemized…300.00 card plus fee show on the statement. But I use Chase 5% card at Staples. They dont get level 3 data. BUT the Staples 10% offer with Amex does pay out even tho its gift cards. I have 2 amex biz cards and got the 10% just this am after ordering GC online on Sunday.



  • And no set rules on amt of VGC you can buy. I usually buy 10 per visit at numerous store with Chase biz cards. However 1 staples only allows 1 card,while 3 miles on the other side of town I can buy 15, Up to clerk working or good manager who wants to show $$ the store is doing. Liquidating all these takes time. Still have 6 from last Staples deal 3 weeks ago. That time the fee was 1.95.



  • The coupon has gift cards as an exclusion so what makes you think it will work with the Visa g/c ?



  • Am I looking in the wrong place? Because I see a $6.95 Fee not a Fee Free VGC.

    The coupon has nothing to do with the Visa GC.

    In-store only, and it hasn’t even started yet.

    Maybe it wasn’t made clear in the OP. but the coupon and the Visa deal are unrelated.



  • No $200 GCs were on display at the store I went to today. I asked for one, and the manager brought out one.

    Does anyone know if these in-store coupons still work for kiosk orders? The $15 off $75 coupon didn’t work with the SSD I was going buy.

    Yes, the stores usually hide the $200 cards in the back and only take one out upon request. That has been going on for some time now.

    Surprisingly the $200 Visa cards were well-stocked on the shelf at my local store. I took 2 to the cashier and asked her to ring them up in separate transactions, but she said she could only do one a day. So I will try to buy another two cards tomorrow: Easy $20 MM per $200 card. Bummer the Am Ex offer is capped at a $500 spend, but I can still get two $200 cards with a $20 MM and a third $200 card with a $10 MM. Not bad, but it’s offers like this one that you wish the Am Ex multi-tab trick was still working.

    Just as I expected, it looks like the Visa gift card purchase qualified for the 10% off offer from Am Ex. I got this email almost instantly after my purchase:

    Your Staples transaction just qualified for Amex Offers.

    Thank you for using your Card at Staples, where you saved 10% on your recent business transaction with Amex Offers.

    A statement credit will automatically be applied to your statement if your purchase meets the offer terms. Continue to use this offer through 06/30/19 or until $50 in statement credits is reached. See offer terms and exclusions below.

    Check Amex Offers & Benefits to view your other offers and maximize your business savings.



  • Are these Visa gift cards easy to use online? Do you need to register them for online use? I want to pay off my auto insurance policy premium.



  • The default pin on this card is last 4 digits of the card? May buy money order with it at Stop&Shop if using online is a hassle.


  • 500 Club

    @fatwking Yes the default PIN is the last 4. IDK if SnS will let you use a prepaid gc for m.o.
    I think I tried once but maybe it wasn’t SnS. Many of us buy our m.o. at WM.
    I use them online to pay my eBay fees. I’ve used them online to pay utility bills.



  • @my4mainecoons Thank you.

    I bought 3. I will check if they have the default pin. Thx.
