Staples’ sale for 20% off select gift cards is live now! The deal is valid this week only, and doesn’t appear to be available online, so hurry to your local Staples store if you want to take advantage.
Also worth noting is that $200 Visa gift cards are available for only $201.95:
Should You Buy?
There’s always debate about manufactured spending, fees, clawbacks, and more with these kinds of deals. However, if you do decide to purchase, make sure to use a card that offers bonus earnings at office stores, such as the Chase Ink, which gives you 5x rewards.
A quick look at reselling sites also shows most of these gift cards selling for a 5% (or less) discount, meaning you could come out just about even or perhaps earn a little on these cards.
My biggest rub here is the need to go to the store and purchase a physical card. Lazy? Yes. Will I probably still do it? Also yes. This offer is just too tempting not to take advantage of.
Is anyone here planning on jumping on this? What’s your strategy for buying?
