There are Visa and Mastercard gift cards for sale. The fee to purchase these can range from $5 to $6. This week they will bring back an offer that waives the fee entirely. Let's see what we can find.

There was a new update on 10/30-22.

The Offer

  • No purchase fee when you buy a $200 Visa® Gift Card (up to 8)

Key Terms

  • Offer valid 10/30/22 – 11/5/22
  • The Visa® Gift Card is issued by Metabank
  • Limit of 8 per person, per day

Maximizing This Deal

The Chase Ink Plus, Ink Cash, and Amex SimplyCash Plus will all give you 5X/5% back on your purchases. I assume you can visit multiple stores and ask to do multiple transactions despite the terms.

Spending the Visa Gift Cards

Wherever Visa is accepted, these Visa cards should work. I am aware that people have had issues with these cards at Walmart, but they can be used at some places and can be used as credit if you use them to buy normal products.

You can see how to liquidate gift cards.


I always love when Staples brings back this offer. Most people probably prefer Visa gift cards and will be happy for this offer. Happy Ultimate Rewards’ing next week.
