Is it safe to use the Staples rebate gift cards among different Staples account or will this risk a merge? I'm just wondering because I have two accounts for a total of $300 ($150 per account) and I don't want to risk using all the rewards on one account. Thank you.
I have many times used a GC received on Account A on something I posted to Account B.
I have done this among four premier accounts and never had a problem.

Short story: Please check the balance on your Visa gift cards again even if you have already used all the money from the card.

Long Story :
Guys - I noted that couple of my $200 Visa GCs, which I loaded on Serve, in $100 per transplantation (because serve somehow limited me to $100 per day), came down to $0 balance few days ago per the gift card mall website. But today when I went to gift card mall site, I noted two of my gift cards are showing $100 balance each! First I thought that this website is showing something wrong...and went to serve, and double confirmed that it loaded a total of $200 on those cards in the $100 each transaction!

So, I took chance and added those cards on amazon payment, and sent out $100 from each of those cards, and transactions were successful :-). Then I went back to gift card mall site, and it showed $0 balance on those card...when I clicked to see the transaction details for those cards, I get a popup error message, error code 500...

Just now when I went to gift card website to check the balance, it shows $-100, and all 3 $100 transactions underneath (2 from serve, and 1 from Amazon).

Bottom line, please checkout your Visa GCs for the balance again even if you sucked out everything from those. You may get lucky...

Not sure if Serve or Amazon would eventually reverse my transaction or not, but at present all look well and I got some extra money!

Ya same thing happened to me, i noticed it a few weeks ago though, i did the same 2 $100 loads to serve and both of them credited to my serve account but only one of them came off of my prepaid visa card. So i waited about a week and it still said i had $100 left on the prepaid card. So i bought some movies from foxconnect to sell to amazon and made another $50 on that already free $100 Smilie

It happened to one of my $200 card. I didn't use it since I think they can go after you to get the money back. After about two weeks, the money was withdrew with a description of "Settlement Adjustment Debit". The adjustment happened actually several days after I closed my account.

i got the email saying cards had been mailed on 12/18 and just received the cards yesterday, so it was about 11-12 days and i live fairly close to where the cards ship from which i believe is dallas, tx. i'm sure yours will get there probably Monday or Wednesday/Thursday due to the holiday.

Never would have thought of this! Shredded my cards (for security), closed Serve in favor of Bluebird, and can't remember my giftcardmall loginFrown. I hope there isn't any free money left hanging around.

Finally got mine today.

Went to Staples and took OfficeMax paper coupon ($30 off $150) that I got in the mail. Manager told me that they do not take/accept competitors coupons.

This is a news to me. Anyone had any luck with this?

competitor coupons are a big YMMV because it depends on the store. I was able to grab a paperwhite using a OM coupon so it just depends,

Same SER account
Quote from ddhunter View Post :
Nope. The theoretical max. per SER account would be 10 Staples GCs and each of it can be worth a max. of $150. So, if someone had the means to buy/drain Visa/MC GCs worth $10k (in a series of 10 transactions each worth $1k) and the guts to submit them all in a single SER account, he/she would have received Staples GCs worth $1500 (10 each with $150 payout). Man that would have been one hell of a ROI!
I just sat down to submit my rebates, I have a few sets of 5x$200's. I am wondering whats the max I can submit per SER account. From what you have posted, it seems like at least 10 GC's per SER account is safe.. so I am thinking 10x$200 for each SER. Does that make sense? thanks.

From what has been posted here in SD and my personal experience, each SER account is entitled to a max. of 10 Staples GCs and each Staples GC can be worth a max. of $150. In other words, each SER account can have 10 transactions with each transaction being a max of $1000 worth of VISA/Mastercard GCs. HTH.

I will give it a try and will keep you updated :-) I am submitting 10 x $200 for a SER account ( 4 different transactions, 2,2,3,3)

For your case, you should be just fine. You should receive 4 Staples GCs respectively worth $60, $60, $90 and $90 for this SER account.
