Mastercard Gift Cards On Sale From Office Max/Depot And Staples

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook has $100 Mastercard gift cards on sale with no purchase or shipping fee, a $6.95 savings.

-Office Max and Office Depot have $15 off $300 of Mastercard gift cards in store only through 8/25.

Use your Chase Ink Business Cash or Ink Plus card and get 5 points per dollar spent. Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other business travel cards!

Some stores may limit you to 1 transaction, but some stores won’t have any limits at all, which would allow you to scale the savings quite nicely.

If you buy 2 $200 Mastercard gift cards in store you’ll pay $398.90 including fees and you’ll earn 1,995 points by charging it to an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.

If you buy a $100 and a $200 Mastercard gift cards in store you’ll pay $297.90 including fees and you’ll earn 1,490 points by charging it to an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.

You can pay bills up to $250 each with Plastiq using a Mastercard and Masterpass without paying any fees until 9/30. If you signup via this Plastiq referral link and make a $500+ payment, you’ll get the fee waived on your next $500 payment.

Mastercard gift cards should have the PIN number in the package. They’re a bit trickier to use at WalMart, you need to hit cancel on the keypad after swiping it in order to change it to a debit payment before using it to load Bluebird, buying money orders, or using bill pay. You can also buy money orders at various grocery stores and gas stations.

Or you can donate the gift card to charity and get a receipt for the full face value.

Or you can give away a gift card as a wedding or Bar Mitzvah gift.

Or you can always use it for everyday spending while earning 5% or 5 points per dollar everywhere.

It’s worth noting that some people have reported that their Mastercard gift cards have been hacked and they have had to file a report in order to get their funds back. That hasn’t happened when I bought Mastercard gift cards, but you may not want to hang onto them for long just in case.

They allow buying gift cards with a credit card?

david gabay

yes 3 only…. per transaction


It’s worth noting that many ppl have Amex offers at Staples (10% back up to $100 & 5 / 25) or 10% back at “Office supply stores”


Keep in mind that some of the Staples offers are In-Store Only!


5 off 25 in store only


3 cards limit from staples?


Staples had same offer a few weeks ago and I ordered 3 twice with no problem.


yah its 3 per order.

chicago rocks

walmart sells no fee money orders?


Awesome! Thanks Dan!!


what stops you from paying your wife $250 invoices every day?


They ask for proof


I’ve got plenty of proof. My wife costs me much more than that.


lol. It has to fit one of their categories but maybe your wife can fit all of them 🙂
idk if they will press for proof for a small charge (unless you do it more than once)


This triggered the Amex “Great news! You just used your Amex Offer” on different cards (ordering for self and spouse).


No $6.95 discount on the $100 mastercard on It is coming up $106.95 total


Worked for me $100

Can these easily be cashed out at WMT?

Amex has an offer of 10 percent back in cash at office supply stores this month. Wonder if this purchase counts!


It’s through November 30th


Worked for me bought 2 $100 no fee charged thanks


If you have the Amex biz card, there’s a chance at 15% back, the standard 5% at office supplies retailers, and the 10% Amex offer w/ Staples through 11-30


Ordered and staples canceled the order due to using a card with the 10% Amex offer.


any other way how to liquidate them besides money orders?


The Plastiq offer when using a Mastercard and Masterpass, has some fine print according to:

The one I found most useful: “Must have made $500 in payments in account history to qualify (this blocks people from creating multiple accounts).”


Has anyone been able to cash out with money orders at USPS? Clerk said my card came up as a credit card and that it couldn’t be used!


It doesn’t show in the Office Depot weekly ad why?


Can’t find any store in Brooklyn. Heading to the Catskills later today.
Any suggestions where I can find a good OM/OD on the way?


can one just check out as a guest multiple times


I did that twice (2 x $300 giftcards) and encountered no problems


Does purchasing gift cards at Staples go towards the $3000 spending threshold to receive the signup point bonus on the cash ink business cash card?


any info on amex having on issue with heavy visa cards from staples ?
Dan, can u see an issue?

Joseph Landsberg

Don’t do what I just did. Don’t use mileageX to pay for them, they don’t accept it as a form of payment.


savta just received my cards that i bought last week and there is no money on them now it has become a pain to fight around and get my money


savta now i called another number the gift card mall and the gentleman said my card will be activated in 2 hrs we’ll see
thanks Dan for all your information


I also received mine yesterday and none of them have any funds loaded on to them. Staples outsources all of these cards to gift card mall. And guess who isn’t picking up their phone…Giftcard mall. What a gigantic pain. Never again.


same happening to me….


Apparently these new Mastercard Gift Cards from Staples cannot be Activated from the website ( as indicated in the included letter and shown on the back of the card. You must call “Gift Card Mall” directly to get them Activated. You’ll need to have your Order Number available when calling. Please call Gift Card Mall at (877) 426-2551 and they will assist you.


Walmart isn’t working for me. I’ve been to 2 walmarts. No success in getting money orders at either. Also cards are not working at Food Lion. Any suggestions for eastern NC to convert the cards? Thank you
