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.

For some odd reason it said I hit Premier. Only thing I spent on was these gift cards. Is that a fluke? I spent it on 2 accounts when I purchased the gift cards. There was another $1000 that I did not add a Staples rewards account to because it did not apply. Is there anyway I can go back and add those purchases now? Make a rewards account and add it? I would love to have 4 Staples premier accounts for ink recycling.

If that is the case then I can get premier easily every year. Ill just buy $1000 with my ink bold. The cashback will negate the fees.

I have always presumed it was ALL Gift Cards, maybe the exclusion was only Staple Gift Cards?

Just some food for thought.

Nope. Bought plenty of gift cards that were not Staples last year when Amex was running a $10 Amex Twitter promotion and none of those purchases were included in my spend total for premier. For whatever reason, sometimes the system screws up and includes them in the spend total. Seems hit or miss.

Now this is really weird.. I has submitted 1k under an account. Just submitted another transaction of $200 x 3 and..

Right after my submission, got an email..

-----------------------------------------------------------
Information about your Easy Rebate inside.
Looks like these rebate product(s) were returned to Staples:

$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT


Since it/they were returned, we've gone ahead and cancelled the rebate process.

But here's the good news: If you purchased more than one rebate-eligible product on this submission but did'nt return all of them, you'll still receive your rebate(s) for the products you kept. Only the submissions for those products you returned have been invalidated.

And then another email
---------------------------------------------------------
We got it. And soon you'll get it back.

Thank you for submitting your rebate request(s) through Staples Easy Rebates! We have received rebate information for this/these product(s):

$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT
$200 VISA GIFT

--------------------------------------------------------------
Both had the links for the tracking and SER # that was just submitted. I have no clue what is going on..



Thanks, I did that and verified the amount. And proceeded with the rest of submissions. But something weird happened, see my other post..
I think I know partly whats going on.. the emails I received were in wrong order. Basically, the 1st email says that I submitted 6 cards and then the 2nd email says that they have canceled 3 and 3 are left. I guess it might be related to the glitch that they had earlier.

During the feeding frenzy for the Visa/MC gift cards, I usually did not give a telephone number because I did not want to "confuse" any addresses, etc during the rebate phase. I just went back and looked at my premier accounts - three of them had GC purchases in the totals. Your right, it looks like it is a matter of luck.

If and when Staple runs a similiar promotion, it would be worth it to give the reward number - just in case

Same thing happened on my account (the total spend included the Visa gcard purchases) and I got Premiere status notification. So, I'd say it's worth a shot using your Chase Ink card. Something peculiar I noticed though was that the Visa GC spend amounts didn't seem to be accounted for in the month of december as far as my rewards status (even though the GC purchases were made in Nov), it only seemed to be taken into account after the end of year calculation. I'm just pointing this part out since it's only January and if this 'fluke' only occurred at the end of the year calculation it may not be worth it to do it right now. Hope this all makes sense.

for some kinds of reasons, my rebate for 5*200 Visa GC is still Validation in progress. Reward Amount Pending . I purchased and submited the rebate on Nov 24. It looks like that other people might have already recevied the GC, but my schedule is delay. Do I need to call Staple or should I wait for a couple of weeks? Thanks.

I hope you are right. I did $200 x2, $200 x3, and $100 x10. So far I have received $60 and $90. Last one was submitted later so it's still validation in progress.

I still have a few more days before the submission deadline.. Will you please keep us posted if the status of your submission changes? thanks
They validated my $100 x10. Go go go!
