  • Direct link to ad (see page 13 of next week’s ad)

Key Terms

  • Limit 5 per customer per day (YMMV on whether your cashier / store follows the ad)
  • In-store only

Quick Thoughts

This can be an easy point-generator for Ink Cash or Ink Plus cardholders (note that the Ink Plus is no longer available to new applicants).

In my case, my wife is an AU on my Ink Plus card, so if we were going to a store, we could each pick up 5 fee-free $200 gift cards per store per day, earning 10K Ultimate Rewards in the process ($2000 in gift cards x 5 = 10,000 points). That would certainly make this an attractive enough deal if we were to pass a store during this promotion.

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

We have added this deal to our list of current Visa and Mastercard gift card deals.
