Staples Rebates - "Staples Barcode Coupon"

madcowdisease 806 161 August 23, 2015 at 04:28 PM
A few of my rebates have been mailed (or so the processor says in an e-mail), and when I click on the link instead of saying "Staples Metabank Visa" it says something along the lines of "Staples Barcode Coupon."

What is this? Don't tell me it's store credit...kind of strange because the line right above it, where the rebate title is, it says "VISA card for $XX.XX."

It's a Visa on a letter containing a coupon.

I panicked, thinking I'd just chucked a few rebates that didn't have plastic cards thinking they were junk mail.

Rewards chat says its a plastic card AND a coupon for something in addition to the rebate.

Correct?

I wonder if this is the future of all rebate cards with the advent of pin-and-chip. Plus the cost of producing all these cards. TBH, I don't know why 4myrebates in association with Amex hasn't set up a rebate-card laundering service for a 1-2% fee- easy money for them.

Edit: They don't cos they probably make more money from people forgetting to use them, I know.

I submitted a rebate for paper and got the same response. I did get the usual visa prepaid card in the mail. guess it's just another way they code their rebates.
