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.

I've never bought a visa gc before, just wanted to know how do I activate it? Does the cashier do that when I make the purchase? Tia.

It's automatically activated at the register after the sale.

so if we buy one MC =$105.95, roll 10 times

OOP = $100 MC
OOP =$59.50 activation fees

sell staples $150 GCs on plasticjungle =$118 cashback (78.75% payout)
=total "quick" cash money maker $58.63

is that right?

yes you could do that, but would be throwing away $32. You can easily use those Staples gift cards on many deals posted on here and get all of that back, plus whatever profit on the deal.

Looks like a good deal. Going to buy $2000 worth of visa gift cards (through 2 accounts) through my chase card which yields 5 points per dollar spent. Essentially a little over 5% cashback which will negate the $5.99 fee. Will liquidate these cards easily. Will then use the 2 $150 staples cards to buy $300 worth of amazon gift cards. Any flaw in my logic? Amazon gift cards is like money to me.

Someone above said that you can't use Staples gift cards to buy other gift cards. I'm not sure if you could get away with it but could give it a shot.

Either way you'll get the GCs, but it falls on how much you to spend OOP
The first method if you buy the MC with the one you just got until the 10th one, then you pay $100 and get $100 to spend
The second method, you would pay $1000 but get $1000 to spend

Question: does the register charge you the $6 at the register?

I think the matter is getting 15 or 30 for a $200 gift card. Maybe none?

I'm using my ink bold to make purchases and i'll be needing those gift cards anyway since there is no officedepot nearby. anyone confirm that you can get staples gift cards by purchasing the $200 gift cards?

No one knows AFAIK. The last promotion was for MasterCards only and IIRC no one bought a $200 card as the only ones available were $100 cards. 2x$50 did work to get a Staples gift card but that is paying way more in activation fees than necessary but the person who did it only needed $50 cards.

Someone asked for the terms on the MasterCard/Visa gift cards. I purchased a Mastercard today at Von's(Safeway). It was issued by US Bank National Association. Same issuer of the Staples MasterCard. BTW, you can only get one $10 bonus coupon at Von's per DAY when buying $100 MasterCard. I bought two in 2 transactions and did not get a $10 bonus coupon on the second MC purchase. No biggie. Amex is paying the fee with 6% back on groceries with my Amex Blue Preferred.I did use the original $10 bonus coupon on the second transaction.

"U.S. Bank will deduct from your balance an inactivity fee of $2.00 per month after 12 consecutive months of inactivity, except where prohibited by state law."

To use online REGISTER your card at www.mygiftcardsite.com before you make an online purchase.

ETA: I am going to use the 2 $100 MasterCards I bought today to purchase $200 in Outback gift cards. You get a $20 bonus card for each $100 in OB gift cards. The $20 bonus card(s) can only be used between 1/1/13 and 2/10/13.
