staples gift card deal

Starting on Sunday 3/20/16, Staples is running a promotion (page 20) offering a $20 Staples store gift card via rebate with the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards. As a reminder, there is a similar Visa gift card promotion going on through Saturday as well.

The Deal

Buy $300 of MasterCard® Gift Cards and get a $20 Staples® Gift Card after easy rebate

The Rebate

The rebate is done completely online and the Staples gift card generally comes via U.S. mail within 4-6 weeks.

Key Terms

  • Valid 3/20/16–3/26/16.
  • Limit 1 per customer.
  • In store only.


Generally with these deals it is best to use a Chase Ink card to earn 5X Ultimate Rewards points or an Amex SimplyCash card to earn 5% cash back at Staples. Those with the recent Staples Amex Offer may wish to use their linked Amex card to earn 5% back as well.

what is the rebate id?
the cashier gave me a duplicate receipt, so no rebate form no order number on it.


@Alan: should be the bar code number at the bottom of the receipt. Hopefully you have that. They usually print out 4 or 5 receipts – a lot of paper – when I purchase a rebate deal. And the bar code number is at the bottom of each. If you have that, go to and enter your info.

Grimble Grumble

I could only find Mastercard $25 GCs at the nearest Staples. Doing the math that works out to 12 (12 X $25 = $300) times 4.99 activation fee – rounding off to $60. Gee, spend 60 to get 20 back? Wrong carrot to chase.


Out of curiosity, can the rebate cards be sent to a PO Box. I doubt that they can but I want to see if anyone has had success sending them there.


Yes, rebate cards can be sent to PO Box. But Staples is wacky with some auto-correction of certain city names with matching zip codes, and sometimes the card is sent, according to Staples, but “never received” by PO. May require follow-up inquiry to rebate ctr if no card received after 30 days past send date. Can be a pain.


Can you load Serve with these?


Thanks 🙂


It’s a yellow “Change Payment” button on the terminal, not red (at least at the stores that I’ve been to).


your Serve is still alive? you lucky devil!


Mine’s sooooooooo dead. But I got a new one under my SO’s name 🙂


I haven’t been able to load MC GCs for a few months at the WM kiosks, even trying to load amounts below $50. So if kiosks are your preferred route, don’t go all in until you confirm they work for you.

Visa GCs work fine though for me.


Thanks – appreciated the data point!
