Earn a $20 Visa Prepaid Card When You Buy $300 or More in Visa Gift Cards at Staples

To make the most of the deal, pay with a card that earns 5% cash back (or 5X points) at office supply stores:

  • AMEX SimplyCash – 5% cash back at US office supply stores
  • Chase Ink Bold (no longer available) – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores
  • Chase Ink Cash – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores
  • Chase Ink Plus – 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (5% back) at office supply stores

If you buy 2 $200 Visa gift cards, you’ll pay ~$414 ($400 in gift cards + ~$14 in activation fees).

And you’ll get a $20 Visa prepaid card and ~$21 in cash back when you pay with a card like the AMEX SimplyCash, which earns 5% back at US office supply stores (~$414 in gift cards X 5% cash back).

So you’ll make a profit of ~$27 (~$41 back – $14 in activation fees).  That’s a great deal!

Visa gift cards have a PIN, so you can load them to your AMEX Bluebird, Serve, or Target Prepaid REDcard and then pay bills you can’t normally pay with a credit card.
