This deal is listed in Page 9 of staples ad for the week 11/11 - 11/17. Limit 10 Staples Gift Cards per name/address/household. Of course, there is an activation fee of $5.99 on the $100 Visa / Master cards. Even after factoring in the activation fee, it is a potential $9 MM deal(in the form of Staples GC..) per VISA/Master card purchase.

what do you mean? you can't use rewards to pay for this anyway.

Yes ... Exactly !!!! It took about 25-30 minutes and there were about 35-40 visa $200 cards on the rack. In Littleton,CO
So there is no issue with using a $200 Visa GC to buy another $200 Visa GC as far as Staples policy goes? Could certain stores not allow this or this shouldn't be a problem at all?

YMMV. 2 stores today accepted them, 1 did not.

because he found a dumb cashier. they are not allowed to do that. yes, there is no issue to ring it up, if you can find a cashier who doesn't know anything.

I think it depends on the store. When I went today it was completely dead out

They let me do it today although probably weren't supposed to. And Assistant Manager was standing there too and even looked at the last 4 digits of the Gift Card. I had bought it at another store, but still against policy I think...not positive.

That's why tomorrow, I plan to use my Serve cards to do this instead if I can get it to work properly.

it's not store. it's the person who is not knowledgable enough. i got refused last night from the same store. today i got a different girl to ring up 1 of my $200 visa cards.

It seems like they don't really have to look at it...just keep it out of view and tell them the last 4 if they ask without showing it to them....seems like you could get away with it if you didn't just buy it at that particular store.

I asked before where this $1K limit was and no one can verify where this is stated or written.

So I would just do multiple of the 3 x $200 transactions since that gives the best ROI using same name/address since each transaction is counting for 1 GC per address and we know the max stated is 10 GC per address household, but nothing about this $1000 limit anywhere.

A few have posted doing at least 2 of these 3x$200 transactions with same name/address and both rebates are showing up for $135 and this exceeds the $1K limit you are talking about.
I think staples will invalid those excess the limit per address later on. Happened to me once. They cross checked my 2 addresses and disqualified oneEmbarrassment

Doing it your way would mean $270 total out of pocket and you get $300 Staples GC. Take out the $70 fees from the GC you have $230 FREE Staples GC with minimal initial cash outlay. Of course this depends on the store and people ringing you up if they allow this.

the trick is to chat with a rep and let them come to the conclusion that some other person with a similar name as yours lives in the same area. They'll validate it immediately. Just play dumb (oh im talking about the multiple addresses btw not excess rebates per one address)

Btw, one note about Serve, they are known for locking your account and holding all your funds at any time for no good reason. Then they want you to fax/mail them all kinds of personal data so you can use your acct again. I just had one of my accts locked. It said to call one number, so I called that and they told me that I have to call another number, etc, etc. I don't have any money in that acct, but what a hassle.

I never leave more than a couple of dollars in any of the accts because they are known to do this. I had two accts in one name which could be why they froze one of them, but who knows. And other people are saying if you transfer too many funds out of your acct, they will close it as well...just not a very friendly or customer-centric company although people seem to like the main AMEX cards with all the perks.

Serve is somewhat easier to deal with than AP. There is no fee involved in this process. I also believe that Serve is currently giving away $25 when you load $25 from a debit card/bank account (for first-time customers only).

https://serve.com/load25/

what is the monthly limit on serve? i believe someone pointed out in this thread that there is no limit on funding serve and fee free via debit card, it is credit cards that are fee free up to $250 a month?
