Be sure to enter my Weekend Giveaway of a Delta First Class Companion Certificate!
Staples is running another promotion on prepaid card purchases. This is similar to the one from last month except the gift card offered this time is a Staples gift card, not a Visa gift card. (Also, this time, it is for the purchase of Mastercard gift cards, not Visa like last month.) That you receive a Staples gift card instead of a prepaid card is not really that big of a deal because you can still find many ways to cash out the $20 Staples card!
$20 Staples Gift Card with $300 Mastercard Purchase
This offer is only valid for in-store purchases. It is not a huge moneymaker, but if you are purchasing Mastercard and Visa gift cards at Staples (to earn points), then this little promo will wipe out your Mastercard gift card fees (and then some). If you shop at Staples, you should be using your Chase Ink Bold or Chase Ink Plus so you can earn the 5 Ultimate Reward points per dollar. If you do that with this promo, you will end up with 1,564 Ultimate Reward points (purchasing a $200 gift card + $6.95 + $100 gift card + $5.95 fee x 5 UR multiplier) and have a net profit of $8.10! Those points are worth at least $25 in future travel (when transferred to partners like United, Hyatt, or Southwest). Take advantage of this offer this week, if you can! Easy points plus some free money.
Refer to my previous post to see about the rebate steps (similar to that deal in receiving the rebate).
