Staples $20 Rebate on $250+ In Visa Cards


staples visa rebate

It has been awhile since we have seen a Staples Visa gift card promotion. Thankfully one is returning this weekend. Starting on Sunday 3/15/15 Staples is offering a $20 rebate with the purchase of $250 or more in Visa gift cards.

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.

Little suggestion- 2x 200 – 620 ! You brought this for free ( as 20 you will get it back ) ! Plus you got 3100 points ! Call the no which is given on gift card and once you hear balance , press 5 and set your PIN . Easy to load on red bird , I have had no problem with Redbirds . And I pay my landlord every month by redbird !!!!


“I am sorry, that was an invalid entry” – got this message when I tried pressing 5, though 5 was not listed as an option while 1 thru 4 & 6 were! Must have changed their system.


Wheres the rebate form?

[…] BACK! I first read about this on Frequent Miler – it’s More free money at Staples this week. As always, I prefer to announce this as a […]


Ughh, wish I read more carefully…. I bought mine a day early, so if I go back to the store within the next week, it would be breaking even. Though 800 points (no Ink or business cards) for ~$25 (or $5 after rebate). That still isn’t too bad.


Could you also load the $20 gift card on the Staples prepaid RedCard (RedBird)?

[…] Frequent Miler writes, you can make money and earn points on Visa gift cards at Staples (in-store only) next week!  Buy $250 or more in Visa Gift cards and you’ll get a $20 rebate (1 per household)!  That’s more than enough to cover the ~$7 in activation fees per card. […]


What is the easiest/ most cost efficient way to unload these? I really miss evolve.


I tried the last 4, and it did not work. Those cards really do NOT have the PIN feature. The instructions state that they must be used as credit (despite the word debit clearly printed on them).

[…] special thank you goes out to The Frequent Miler for posting about this […]


So the Visa Gift Cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted at anytime? There is no connection to Staples (other than that is where you need to buy the cards). Right?




In my past experience, those $20 Visa cards were difficult/impossible to use on split transactions (i.e. when the total is >$20). They will not have PINs. If you care about and track your rebates, it make take several months of effort. I’ll pass on this deal — it doesn’t pay enough to compensate for the nuisance factor.


How does one load a staples rebate card to an Amazon account? Thanks.


Just use on Evolve and sacrifice the 60cent cost.


1st time doing this. So are you saying to buy 2 gc’s @ $100 or $200 each? And then further explain why please.


Thank You Very Much! I got it a lot better now. Now if you don’t mind, if I were to book a rm in a IHG program, pay w/ the GC’s and the balance w/ the IHG cc, would it still count as a stay? Between Mom’s Day and proms along w/ graduations, I can’t go wrong. Taking the wife and mom-in-law to Michael’s Restaurant in Vegas would nearly cover this period.


I guess most of us here more interested in points, therefore I see 2 options…
1) 2 x $200 and 1 x $100 for $519.85 and make a profit of $0.15 + 2,599 points
2) 3 x $200 for $620.85 and pay $0.85 for 3,104 points

I would go for the second option.

Thank you for heads-up.


Agree on the 2 x $200. This is a rebate, not the OM instant discounts where you could potentially get 2 in the same transaction.

The way I am looking at this… I am getting 2,599 points for Free or 3,104 points for $0.85.
