Staples will have a Buy: $100 VISA or MasterCard Gift Card, Get $15 Staples Gift Card (SER) promotion this upcoming week 11/11 – 11/17. We had a similar deal a few weeks ago w/ limit 10 so there’s a potential $90.50 MONEY MAKER!
Basically, each transaction you’re paying $100 to get $15, but there’s a fee of $5.95 so effectively you make $9.05 per transaction. You can buy $100 gift card, activate it, then use it to pay for the next transaction (you’ll need to cover the difference). Do this until you reach the max limit per rewards account.
Here’s a diagram:
Note: The best MONEY MAKER is with $200 Gift Cards. More initial out-of-pocket, but you come out ahead since you’re paying considerably less in fees.
Note: Safeway is running a promotion currently to get a $10 ONYO CAT when you buy a $100 VISA or Mastercard Gift Card too so you should be able to use these at Staples. Then, you can take them to OfficeMax the following week since they’re doing the same $15 offer.
You can choose to buy a $200 Gift Card (five per address) to make it go faster:
