Get Fee-Waived $200 Visa Gift Cards From Staples, Stock Up On Amazon Gift Cards With 5x Points

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

Staples is waiving the $6.95 purchase fee on $200 Visa gift cards through 6/19 in-store only.

Use your Chase Ink Cash Card or Ink Plus card and get 5 points per dollar spent. Office supply stores never charge a fee for retailer gift cards, but these Visa gift cards can be used anywhere!

With Prime Day coming up next Monday and Tuesday, you can also stock up on Amazon gift cards (Amazon Fire and Amazon Kindle gift cards also work for anything on Amazon), while earning 5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent. When redeemed for a value of 1.5 or 2 cents each, that’s 7.5% or 10% back on your Amazon purchases!

Buying gift cards can help you meet the spend threshold to earn the highest ever 75,000 point signup bonus for Ink Cash on top of earning 5 points per dollar spent.

The IRS recently lost a case trying to tax a couple that bought millions of dollars in Visa gift cards, which they subsequently cashed out in order to earn 5% cash back. The court ruled that rebates for gift card purchases are not taxable.

The weekly ad states that there is a limit of 5 per customer per day, though the fee waiver should apply on up to 10 cards per transaction if your store isn’t a stickler for limits.

You can use the gift cards to buy money orders at select grocery stores and gas stations. Just use the last 4 digits of the card as the PIN number to cash them out.

Or you can donate the gift card to charity and get a receipt for the full face value while earning 5 points per dollar.

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% cash back or even better, 5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar everywhere!

What do the Amazon Gift cards have to do with this deal? You can always buy amazon gift cards from staples with no fees…


Just an opportunity to meet your spend threshold if you are already in store


MO’s are no longer readily available in my area. I now turn fee free VGC’s into Amazon GC’s from my local grocery store.

Earn 5x on the VGC and fuel perks on the Amazon GC.

Just got the new chase sapphire preffered… Would it be smart to buy the giftcards with the preffered?


Not as good as the Ink, where for get 5 for 1. If you use preferred, you only get 1 for 1 – ok if you are trying to met minimum spend, but no other point to it.


Most staples here accept cash only and also ID on top of that to buy gift cards and the max they allow is $200 on any gift cards


Where’s here?


Ahhh, thank you so much. I’ve been waiting for this fee waived visa gift card post. I bank a lot of point with these gift card with the ink card, I transfer points to sapphire and redeem them for travel in ratio of 1.5. I love this 🙂


Will this work for amex offer of 5 membership points at office supplies


I’m confused about buying Amazon gc if my Amazon cc already gives me 5% back on Amazon purchases? My point is it’s not worth buying Amazon gc and instead go straight with visa


How can you cash them out for money orders and is there a fee?


What is a money order exactly?
