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.

There's been a small loophole for awhile. Many of the prepaid cards can be loaded to serve, you wait a day or two, and they get coded as a "debit" card in their system, thus circumventing the low $250 credit card limit.

Serve does get a little more picky about sending money, there have been reports of warnings (though few account closures) for people abusing this. I closed one of my serves to do a bluebird account, regretting that now Frown
What is a bluebird account?

I think you are fine upto $20k per year (receiving payments)... Should NOT really worry abt sending payments though..
So if I go ahead and open an AP account under my name and then have my friend/brother/mom/dad open one under their name I will be all set. Then once I get the 3 x $200 Visa cards I then load each one to my AP account which will drain those cards and my AP account will show $600. Then I start a transfer to the other AP account and wait til they get it into their account. Then once that is complete they can transfer that from their AP account straight to their bank account. After that they can transfer from their bank account to my bank account. Transaction complete.

So with AP I can only load up to $1000/mo and transfer up to $1000/mo as well?

There are no fees whatsoever with using AP?

$20K per year AND 200 transactions is the threshold for reporting purposes as I understand the requirements.
So they use the same report criteria as ebay?

You dont have to load your AP account from the prepaid Visa.. You can send directly from Visa to your friend's account thru your AP account....

No fees.. Make sure you choose Goods/Services when sending money..

I guess. I would assume they all fall under the same reporting criteria required by the IRS or some government body edict.

You cannot. Third party services Staples gift card racks and Staples does not keep those skus in their system per other posts in this thread. You need to call the store or visit the store.

So I would initiate the transfer using my AP account and select the $200 amount from Visa GC to send to his account without having to load it first into my account. Once he gets the $200 amount transferred at that time he can transfer it out to his bank account as cash and then transfer from his bank to my bank again.

So do I need to register or do anything with these $200 Visa GCs to have them eligible so that I can transfer the amount from these cards to someone else thru AP?

You do not add funds to your AP to send money to another AP account. You fund the transfer by sending money from the gc you have added to your AP account. Per a previous post, you do NOT need to register the Visa gc in order to fund a transfer from the Visa gc that you added to your account. Not sure if same goes for the MC card or not.

I did the same thing last $1000 Master Card deal, but the Serve site kept showing error with billing address. I called to Serve Customer Service too, they said Serve doesn't accept adding any gift cards, whatever Visa/MC/or Amex. Prove it or it never happened shake head .
the mastercards from us bank can NOT be unloaded on serve. no problems using them on AP. the visas from metabank CAN be unloaded on serve. the cards need to be registered on giftcardmall.com prior to adding to your serve account. $200 limit/day and $1000 limit/month using debit card option. hth!

Thanks (I am so stupid).

I tried reading a few pages but wanted to check if someone has submitted rebate for more than $1000 total.. lets say 2 transactions of 3 x $200 cards each (total amount $1200 or more) and have they gone through? Will appreciate any input.

And while adding the card to Serve, should I add it as a CC or a Debit Card? thanks

I think there was a post from Damnyou earlier in this thread, he had a chat with Staples providing them the SKU that was on the receipt with the 6.95$ Fee for the card when we purchase it, and staples CSR mentioned that there were none in stock around the zip that he provided. Not sure if that was the correct one though.

Can we pick any $200 Visa/MC or there's certain one that's qualified for extra rebate amount? So it looks like best way is 3x$200 and 2x$200 for $135 +$75 total in GC's. Or take a risk and do 3x200 9 times and 2x200 1 time?

So you can add as many of these Visa GCs to your AP account regardless of the total value of the Visa GCs or is there that max limit of $1000 per month imposed? So I could only add up to 5 of the $200 Visa GC to my account and once I transfer from each of those to my friend's AP Account I can add in another $1K and so forth?

Just trying to see what sort of limits are there with AP as far as number of GCs you can added, amount you can transfer, etc.
