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.

Did you send money in quick succession? More than one transfer in a 24 hour period (to the same person?)? Yep, it will go through but if you want to avoid the review do not shot gun your transfers AFAIK.
I did exactly that and worked fine:
I newly created a AP account in a "friends" name, but with my address.
Immediately added 3 of the $200 Visa's to her account (i registered the VISA's to mygiftcard.com first, in her name/with my address)
Immediately sent money 3 times, $200 each from the new AP account to my old AP account.... This happened in like 50seconds...all 3
A minute later I logged in my old AP account and all money was there $600.
Withdrew to bank account.

Yep, and others got held for review when they did them in quick succession. IDK.

Right now the system seems to limit 10 cards/name regardless of purchase amount but you if you got your 2x200 shown up as four $200's and your 3x200 as six $200's, you're basically maxed out. It's just my guess but I don't dare to try more under same address.
what will happen to those who bought a set of 4 x $50 visa cards? i think that set has only 1 single UPC. is it right?

how did you pass the SSN question? Just make up a number?

do we have to register visa cards to mygiftcard.com or no? somebody told me just enter any name/address when doing AP.

I am at staples and they are saying I cannot buy these with my cc. Is this a store policy or corporate policy or am I just not educated about buying debit cards
FYI: I got same BS last night from cashier and assistant manager. The BS of company policy.
But i was smart enough to hide 6 cards in the store, so i went back today when somebody else was working, and bought 3 with cash, and used them immediately to pay for the other 3.
She said absolutely nothing.... it all depends on the cashier

I added a Visa card to an AP account today and sent money right away w/o registering the card. Worked fine. Someone else posted yesterday that this worked as well. And so it does.

Yep.. But the problem is they increased the number of items to 6.... Oh well, now I remember... Even though I purchased only 3 x $200 GC yesterday (and even today) my receipt showed as 6 ITEMS purchased.... Someone please check and let me know too... Big Grin

So, the question now is, 3 cards purchased is considered as 6 and bumped to $150 GC.. Will the number "6" affect the housefold limit? I was planning to do 3 x $200 transaction thrice for each address.. Now since it has doubled, I am confused.. Frown
Thats what I was thinking too.. If thats the case, I am officially out of address.. because if they count as 6, then you cant even submit 2 sets of 3x$200, forget about 3..

I entered her actual SSN... although i personally don't think they would run a credit check (how else would they check if ssn is valid or not)

I registered them... maybe thats why i had no issues ? donno.

So if we spend $1200 in buying these Visa GCs we get upgraded to Premier status or not?
I don’t know if it isnt not true or not, it wouldn’t be inaccurate to assume that I couldn’t exactly not say that it is or isn’t almost partially incorrect but on the contrary. I’m possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way with any amount of uncertainty that I undeniably do or do not know if it shouldn’t probably be, if that indeed wasn’t not to be or isn’t. Even if it wasn’t that I knew it was that’d mean I’d really have to know that it wasn't.

I know that people have different ideas on just how much money a person can make on this deal.
I haven't seen any screen shots showing a "Rebate Offer" higher than "Staples Gift Card for $150.00."
"Limit 10 Staples Gift Cards per name/address/household."
This would seem to indicate that it would be possible to receive $1,500.00 in Staples Gift Cards. ($150.00 X 10)

But Wait

Just for a moment forget the results of any past similar deals. Also forget anything Status information you have seen at the Staples Easy Rebates site.
These are the terms of the promotion:
Promotion: Get a $15 Staples Gift Card on Purchase of $100 or more on Visa and Mastercard Gift Cards at Staples Stores Only
The word "a" is normally thought to be singular, meaning "one."
I have not heard of anyone making a single transaction of more than $1,000. So the phrase "on Purchase of $100 or more" could be $100, $1,000, or any number in between.
Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to conclude the promotion means:
Get one $15 Staples Gift card on one Purchase of anywhere between $100 and $1,000 on Visa and Mastercard Gift Cards at Staples Stores Only

If you were to make ten different transactions you would receive ten $15 Gift Cards.
You might spend a total of $10,000 for $150 worth of Gift Cards.
I do not believe the above scenario will happen, but I urge you to carefully consider the risk vs. the reward when deciding what action to take.

Quote from mathfaster View Post :
Jatan posted something on that other forum which makes the most sense as to why there were double postings of line items today. My new educated guess is that they had an unscheduled outage last night. They did not know what transaction detail had gotten transferred to Parago and what did not. So, they transferred all transaction detail for purchases during the outage period and reprocessed the rebates which is why some people got second processing emails and why there are duplicate lines on some rebates. The rebate amounts went up due to the extra transaction detail. Now when and if they fix this is anyone's guess but IMHO it was not to fix the amount glitch. Now a good IT system would have spun off those duplicate transactions but apparently their process is not that good.

Jatan asked a good question. For those who had double line entries, did you make the purchase during the outage period? Or just before or after the outage?

i dont know why you still quote that question. people have answered to that one many times. each card purchase will counted as 2 puchases: 1 is the card itself + 1 activation fee.

they dont say it's 10 transactions. i'm only interested on the phrase "limit up to 10 staples gift cards". but yes, that also sounds like 1 staples gift card for each transaction/rebate form.
