Hy-Vee is back with what should be a wildly profitable Mastercard gift card deal as you can get $30 off every $500 card you buy.
- Get $10 off every $150 spent on Mastercard gift cards.
- Direct link to weekly ad.
- Expires May 23, 2023.
Hy-Vee normally runs these kinds of deals on Mastercard and/or Visa gift cards leading up to Thanksgiving, so it’s great to see it making a return 6 months earlier than normal.
Provided this latest iteration works the same as past offers, it’s an even better deal than Hy-Vee advertises it. They list it as a $10 discount when buying $150+ Mastercard gift cards, but it’s actually $10 off every $150 spent on Mastercard gift cards. As a result, you get a $30 discount when buying a $500 card. I’m not sure if the cards at Hy-Vee come with a $5.95 or $6.95 purchase fee, but either way you’re making a $23-$24 profit per card before liquidation costs which is an excellent deal, particularly because that’s before taking into account rewards earned by paying with a card that earns more at grocery stores.
At my local Baker’s and Family Fare I’m able to liquidate these but I get hit with metering when I try to get the full value out of them. Any suggestions of work arounds? I was going to try to pair each $500 card with a pair of $200 cards I got from an Office Supply store. That way I could get $450 money orders (or $449) at 2 nearby stores. However the $500 card meters me if I try to do it in short succession. Does anyone know how long I’ll have to wait to get that last $250 off the card?
It’s the best Mastercard deal … of the year!
Expired! Just tried at Maple Grove MN HYVEE
Based on the DoC post, it seems some stores run Wed-Tues, and a very few run Sun-Sat. Perhaps you ran into one of the minority?
Are you tracking the dates for how often this special is run like you do with certain other stores? Might prove helpful to see the history/patterns for future planning. Thank you!
I’ve been tracking it over on GC Galore – so far, the only time they’ve run this promo on Mastercard gift cards has been in the week or two leading up to Thanksgiving the last couple of years https://gcgalore.com/hy-vee-get-10-off-for-every-150-spent-on-mastercard-gift-cards-30-off-500-cards/
Confirmed $30 off $450 variable with 6.95 fee. No issues paying with CC, cards located behind customer service in my store.
No loyalty info needed, so only limits would be store enforced.
Note: no Fuel Saver points on these.
Looking at the ad right now. No such offer.
Hy-Vee has loads of different ads on their site – is it definitely the weekly ad you’re looking at?
I haven’t tried this for a few years, but in the past I’ve had trouble using a credit card at my local Hyvee to purchase VIsas or Mastercards. The system isn’t hard coded to stop it, but most cashiers and managers won’t allow it. The only time that I’ve had any luck is when the store is busy and they call up a shelf stocker to run a checkout lane.
I’ve checked the ad for my local HV in Wisconsin, as well as other locations in the state, and a few out-of-state location ads, and I have yet to find this deal in an ad. Are there specific states where it is or is not available?
I just checked an ad for Madison, WI and it’s showing in there. Make sure it’s the Weekly Ad for May 17-23 that’s selected and it should show at the bottom of the 2nd or 3rd page. Hy-Vee sometimes defaults to one of their other dozen ads, so that might be why you didn’t see it.
Stephen, I found it now. These aging eyes didn’t catch it when viewing the ad on my phone. Thank you.
Does the $10/$150 off directly apply when you check out or do you have to use their member app like how this kind of deals usually run at Meijer?
My understanding is that it’s an instant discount – no need to clip a digital coupon.
Confirmed Instant. No loyalty/ app needed.
We’ve confirmed up and running. Time to make money.
