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.

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.
These cards do not work with Redbox. I have tried both Visa and MC after registering them.

yeah, people are debating whether to do all 10 cards at once or not.

If you do it at once, there's no hassle, but you will end up with 10 x $100 cards.
If you buy one and use that towards next, and use that one for the next one and so on, then at the end, you will only end up with only 1 card, which is pretty easy to get rid of.

But, rolling the cards to subsequent transactions might be a tedious job, especially if the lines is long or if you don't like that kind of attention, if you know what i MEAN. LOL


I am planning on just getting all 10 cards at once and save it for something big on black friday and use them.

HOW TO TURN THIS $9.05 MM into a $29.05 MM (read below):

These MasterCards can be used at Rite Aid on Black Friday weekend to buy $50 Home Improvement cards and you will get a $10 coupon back, which is valid for 14 days, to buy almost anything at Rite Aid. So you can make $9.05 at Staples for buying the MasterCard and then you can use it to buy a couple of Home Improvement cards at Rite Aid and make another $20 with no additional money outlay. Then you can take the Home Improvement cards to Lowes and use them to buy gift cards for other retailers, such as Staples or many others.

YMMV on Rite Aid allowing you to purchase gift cards with a credit card though. If they allow it the system will process the transaction, but some Rite Aids have been known to insist on payment with either cash or debit card.


By the way, the Home Improvement gift cards are Discover-branded and have no fees whatsoever (inactivity fees or any other fee) and the funds never expire. So it is very safe to convert your MasterCards to these Home Improvement cards.

Yeah, I don't think I will any problem spending them either, just problematic if you want to buy something for more than $100

The cards can be used everywhere otherwise, too bad you can't use rewards to buy them :/

well, you can use multiple of them at the same time, so if you are buying a big ticket item, you can use more than 1.

If all else fails, I can use them for gas, or for phone bill.

I hate retail stores haha, the cards will most likely end up at staples on FAR deals, or on amazon as GC's

well.. couldn't you just buy infinitely many cards at safeway then and essentially get fre groceries -the actication fee?

as long as all retailers accept the cards you should be fine, I don't know about safeway but staples take everything

visa gift cards can be used online.

I don't know if it still works but on one occasion, I was able to use it to order something off of amazon with it. I just used my regular billing address and it took it.

Also, visa might let you add a billing address, too. (Amex did it for customers for sure, but haven't tried visa)


And AT&T website definitely takes visa gift cards. Done it many many times.
Other carriers are YMMV, but I don't see why not. It's money!


I am sure I can spend ways to spend $1000. Not a problem Big Grin

again, no more than 1 $100 card online (with some exceptions, e.g. hp.com), of course it can be used for anything $99 or less (if there is a $1 auth)

I read the posts, but not having tried this deal before it seems complicated. Would someone be able to update wiki with detailed instructions on how to use say only $100 out of pocket and work it to the fullest? I was hoping it could be used to reach Premier status, but appareently not. Also, what does AP stand for ? TIA

Can you still us a coupon to buy Visa Cards? I just did that last week. It worked for a good deal a few months ago. Yet I've had an order pending for like 3 days now.
