I first saw this reported by Miles to Memories, but Staples is having (another) free money deal.  I like to call these “Mad Lib” deals:

Save _____ (amount) when you buy _______ (purchase amount) in _______ (type) Gift Cards at _______.  Refund will be given in ___________

This time, the Mad Lib answers are:

1) $20

2) $300

3) Mastercard

4) Staples

5) Staples gift card

In case you didn’t follow along, if you buy $300 in Mastercard giftcards next week at Staples, you’ll get a $20 Staples gift card.  This isn’t quite as good as some of the other deals, since it’s not cash back and comes as a Staples gift card, but it’s still probably worth doing.  Here’s next week’s weekly ad.

staples-mastercard-rebate

Option 1 – 2 $200 cards

Best option (if you can find them) is 2 $200 cards.  There’s a $6.95 activation fee on both, so it’s a money maker of $6.10, plus if you’re paying with the Chase Ink, that’s 2000 Chase points

Option 2 – 1 $200 and 1 $100 cards

You can also get a $200 and a $100 card for $300 total.  Your out of pocket will be slightly less, since the $100 cards only have an activation fee of $5.95, making it a moneymaker of $7.10, but you only get 1500 Chase points (when paying for the Ink)

Option 3 – 3 $100 cards

If your store is out of $200 cards (probably likely), you can get the $100 ones. There’s a $5.95 activation fee on both, so it’s still a slight money maker, plus if you’re paying with the Chase Ink, that’s 1500 Chase points

In addition, there is also Kaspersky Anti-Virus, which is FAR, with a limit of 3 per household.  So that’s another good way to rack up some Chase Ultimate Rewards points.

Let me know if you take advantage of this deal?
