$101.95
-6 Deal Score
9,002 Views
Staples.com has $100 Mastercard for $101.95

This 'deal' works for those w/ CCs that earn 5% category bonus for OSS and sweeter for those w/ AmEx offer for 10% at Staples.

Notes:
  • MCs are vulnerable for hacking, in particular for those purchased in stores. Still proceed w/ caution.
  • $100s are PITA to liquidate - just use online to pay bills

NO, you cannot use Staples gift cards to buy these

You save $3 over $300 Visa which is easier to liquidate and more convenient. 4% cashback won't work on gift cards. To me it's not worth it.

If you have a credit card that earns points on office supplies it can be "worth" it to purchase these.

As far as eBay, I think people are just lazy and buy whatever is available first without searching very long. Or they might pay a couple dollars over what it's worth because their state charges alot of taxes. (Thinking about prepaid phone cards specifically)

Some people use them as ice scraper, door lock opener, and some to build a deck house in boredom. Others buy them in hope that they become collectors edition.

I have the 10% Amex offer on Staples plus the 5% simply cash benefit for office supply stores. On eBay, I assume people buy them to use up their ebucks.

By using my Amex Simply Cash I get 5% Casdhback on purchase from Staples, and there an additional offer for 10% Cahsback via Amex Offer.

It mean after cash back each card will cost me $86.95 That's $13.05 of free money

$13.05 x 3 = $39.15 off for $300 gift card

I typically just used this Gift card to prepaid cable/phone bill in advance once I receive it so not much risk for me either.

Thanks -- looks like limit 3 (max $15 discount per order)

101.95 x 3 = 305.85

305.85 - 10% Amex biz offer (30.59) = 275.26 - 5% Amex SimplyCash cash back = 261.50
