Staples will be offering fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards starting Sunday, January 13, 2019 through Saturday, January 19, 2019. The add states one per customer – YMMV as to whether or not a cashier will allow more than one purchase.

The Deal

  • Staples will waive the $6.95 activation fee when you buy a $200 Visa Gift Card from 1/13/19 to 1/19/19
  • Direct link to ad (see page 6)

Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per customer (YMMV on whether or not your store will allow multiple)
  • In-store only

Quick Thoughts

While obviously not as nice as past promotions for negative-cost Visa Gift Cards, this can nonetheless be an easy point-generator for Ink Cash or Ink Plus cardholders (note the Ink Plus is no longer available to new applicants). Note that the terms only allow for 1 per customer. In my case, my wife is an AU on my Ink Plus card, so I know we could at least pick up 2 per store, earning 2K Ultimate Rewards in the process. That would make this an attractive enough deal if we were passing a couple of stores. The last time they ran this promotion, the discount applied to multiple in the same transaction. YMMV

Overall, this is an easy way to generate some points without cost on this end of the deal. Remember that this does not start until Sunday and it is in-store only.

Don’t forget there is also an Amex Offer for 10% back at Staples up to $50 back, just don’t try to use that Staples offer on more than one Amex card.
