As previously posted…

Staples has an upcoming deal for Visa gift cards where when you buy $250 or more of Visa gift cards, you get a $20 Visa Prepaid Card via easy rebate starting on 3/13. This deal could potentially be pretty profitable for those who have the Amex Offer for You that I wrote the other day for Staples where you get 5% back as a statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make eligible purchases of $100+ in a single transaction in-store at Staples or online at by August 31, 2016, on up to $2,000 in total purchases. – See more about Offer for You here. Now lets sweeten this deal a little more and say that you have this Offer for You loaded on your SimplyCash® Business Card from American Express where you get 5% cash back at U.S. office supply stores (on first $50,000 spent) and now you are in for a sweet triple dip!

  1. “Product may not be available in all states.” I guess means it is not available in the Kansas City area, Missouri or Kansas.

  2. Correction – I found the deal in the rebate center, but not for a on-line purchase, in store only. The on-line cards have a different SKU.

    “Get a $20 Visa (R) Prepaid Card on a Purchase of $250 or more of Visa Gift Cards (SKUs 763604, 763602, 374172, 763607, 374177, 866291) at Staples Stores ONLY”

  3. Walked into Staples, hoping for a $300 VISA. Nope. Then saw a sign that said something like “Credit card purchases of VISA cards require bank authorization.” What exactly does THAT mean? I walked out.

  4. Nick – not sure but it might mean that they might call the credit card and get and authorization number before you buy it. I wouldn’t worry about it.
