Staples.com is once again offering fee-free $100 Mastercard Gift Cards right now. The maximum is 2 cards per account, but this is still a great deal in terms of easy 5x spend. Given the low cap, it should be pretty easy to use these for paying for items or bills that wouldn’t ordinarily present the opportunity to earn 5x regardless of other liquidation options.
- Staples.com is offering fee-free $100 Mastercard gift cards (online only)
- Direct link to this deal (our affiliate link)
- Limit of 2 per account.
- These typically sell out within a day but given the limit of 2 have lasted since at least yesterday.
They have run this and other similar promotions previously a couple of times. I did successfully place an order for 2. Note that the estimated delivery date is 2 weeks away and in my experience they typically take about that long to arrive.
Several readers have in the past reported that these cards can be a pain to activate (sometimes requiring multiple phone calls). Personally, I haven’t had any issue the past few times they ran this deal. Keep in mind that Mastercard gift cards have been known to be more susceptible to fraudulent draining and they can be harder to liquidate. That said, if you have a system for these, fee-free is a nice deal. That is especially true if you’re paying with a card that earns one of the Best Category Bonuses at office supply stores. For example, you’d earn 5x Ultimate Rewards if paying with a Chase Ink Cash card. If you are able to buy two of these cards, that’s an easy 1,000 UR points.
