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.
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
Flying Blue (Air France/KLM)
Chase Ultimate Rewards Hotel Transfer Partners
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.
The cash back automatically appears on your statement like AMEX Offers rebates.
