I’ve written about the Visa Savings Edge program before here and here, but the last day to get your 1% rebate at Staples is December 31, 2014.

You can get a 1% rebate on purchases of $200 or more at Staples when you use your enrolled Visa business card.

When Staples leaves the Visa SavingsEdge program, is it still worth buying Visa gift cards at Staples?  Let’s take a look.

You earn 1% cash back on purchases of at least $200 at Staples using your registered Visa business cards through the Visa Savings Edge program through December 31, 2014.

Most Visa business cards are eligible:

And similar to AMEX Offers the cash back automatically appears on your statement!

Is It Still Worth Buying Visa Gift Cards at Staples?

You can buy $200 Visa gift cards for a fee of ~$7 at Staples which can be loaded to your Bluebird card to pay bills which normally can’t be paid with a credit card.

When you use your Ink Bold, Ink Cash, or Ink Plus card at Staples you earn 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points which can be transferred to airlines and hotels:

 Chase Ultimate Rewards Airline Transfer Partners 
Aer LingusBritish AirwaysFlying Blue (Air France/KLM)
IberiaKorean AirSingapore Airlines
SouthwestUnited AirlinesVirgin Atlantic
 Chase Ultimate Rewards Hotel Transfer Partners 
HyattIHGMarriott
Ritz-Carlton

Emily and I use Chase Ultimate Rewards points to get Big Travel for Small Money.  If you do the same, it could make sense to spend ~$7 to get ~1,035 Chase Ultimate Rewards points (~$207 for the Visa Gift Card X 5 points per $1 spent at office supply stores.)

That’s because those 1,035 Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth ~$20 in travel when you transfer to partner airlines and hotels.  But even as a statement credit, 1,035 Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth ~$10.

Some folks might find it convenient to buy these gift cards at Staples.com while other folks have different methods to load Bluebird that they like better.

As always, do what’s comfortable for you!

Other Ways to Save Money on Visa Gift Cards at Staples

Because Staples frequently offers rebates when you buy gift cards it makes sense to keep buying them at Staples.

Bottom Line

You get a 1% rebate on purchases of $200 or more at Staples using your enrolled Visa business card through December 31, 2014.

The cash back automatically appears on your statement like AMEX Offers rebates.

Any definitive comments on if this Savings Edge program is going to end?

I’m hoping they will extend this, otherwise it’s time to make the drive to get another target prepaid card.
