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.

staples ALWAYS has photo paper and other stuff that are free after rebate. You do no need to lose money. Staples rewards/gift cards are like cash. It just takes a bit longer to convert it to cash, but it is easily done.


On Black friday, staples has a TON of stuff that is free after rebate, that you could easily cash out on. If you have friends/family (with different addresses), that are willing to help you cash out those gift card, you can expedite the process of converting it to cash.


Each week, or nearly each week, staples has things free after rebate that you convert this to cash with..


by the way, im pretty sure buying amazon gift cards will not fly with the store.
Unlike Staples Rewards, use Staples gift card does not eliminate sales tax on the purchase. Unless coupon is used for the free after rebate items, the sales tax and card activation will pretty much cancel out the "profit" unless you are in a state where there is no sales tax.

Yes on the $100 gcs based on the last promo. No one knows how $200 gcs work with number of rebates given. Been discussed thoroughly in this thread.

For Amazon payments, is there that $1 hold? If I send $100 to another account, will that fly?

Input the expiration date wrong when setting up the card to avoid the $1 authorization charge and then fix the date. It works sometimes and not others. If there is no $1 authorization fee using the trick with the expiration date then you can send the whole $100. Else you have to wait until the authorization fee drops off. Or just incur the $1 auth, send $99 and use the card for Redbox with the free codes after the auth falls off the card. You will have $1 for Redbox authorizations.

No before. Just after adding the card to AP with the wrong expiration date. Believe there is a message that the expiration date needs fixing IIRC. Just posting what others have posted. I usually just add the card, check if there is an authorization, and let the authorization fall off.

Except that there is no sales tax on these VISA gift cards. It doesn't matter if the Staples gift cards don't magically make sales tax go away when you buy something. You are the only one who even suggested that anyone would think of that odd possibility.
