Starting tomorrow (September 1), Staples is selling $200 Visa gift cards with no activation fee. This is therefore another great opportunity to rack up some 5x spend at office supply stores if you have an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.
- Buy $200 Visa gift cards at Staples with no activation fee.
- Offer valid September 1-7, 2019.
- In store only.
- Limit 1 per customer.
$200 Visa gift cards usually have a $6.95 activation fee, so that’s the amount being waived with this promotion. It’s therefore not quite as good of a deal as when Staples and Office Depot offer a $15 instant discount as that makes them slightly profitable, but it’s still a good deal nonetheless, especially if you have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.
That’s because those cards earn 5x/5% at office supply stores, so you’ll earn 1,000 Ultimate Rewards or $10 for every $200 card you buy. In theory there’s a limit of 1 per customer, but it should be possible to buy more than that over the course of the week.
If you don’t have one of those Ink cards, a good alternative would be an Amex card with one of the two versions of the latest Staples Amex Offer loaded to it.
