For a long time, Staples ran mail-in rebate deals, but now they seem to have switched to instant discounts. They have a Mastercard discount that could be of interest to some. Let's see what we can find.

The Offer

  • Get $6.95 off when you purchase a $200 Mastercard gift card.

Key Terms

  • Offer valid 12/4/22 – 12/10/22
  • The Mastercard® Gift Card is issued by Metabank, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International.
  • 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 Mastercards

Wherever Mastercard is accepted, these Mastercards 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.


Office supply store gift card deals are hard to come by. I think this one is my favorite because you can spend a lot of money in a single trip. I will give up the small profit for the extra 3 cards for the Office Depot deals, even though they are slightly profitable.
