Use Your Staples Rebate Cards to Buy Items In-Store or Online at Staples

You can only use the $20 Staples rebate card at Staples (in-store or online).  You can’t use them to buy other gift cards, but $20 would get you a lot of free chocolate and candy (if you have a sweet tooth like me!).  Or you can sell them online.

Folks like to buy AMEX gift cards to meet minimum spending requirements to earn sign-up bonuses on credit cards.  Because they can earn bonus points faster, and keep the AMEX gift cards to spend any time.

You’ll also earn bonus points at office supply stores with certain cards:

  • Chase Ink Bold, Ink PlusInk Cash – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% cash back) at office supply stores
