Happy Monday readers!
Money, miles & points lovers should all rejoice this week, as Staples is throwing out three solid freebies!
This week (March 3 to March 9, 2013) you can buy the following items in-store at Staples:
- MONEY MAKER: Get a $15 Visa prepaid gift card when you buy $150 or more in Visa prepaid cards. (Limit 1 $15 visa gi(That’s a MONEY MAKER deal right there!)
- FREE AFTER REBATE (FAR) item: Hammermill 8.5″ x 11″ CopyPlus copy paper (500 sheets): $6.99 – $6.99 easy rebate = FREE (limit 2 per household)
- FREE AFTER REBATE (FAR) item: Staples photo plus 4″ x 6″ paper, gloss (60 pack): $9.99 – $9.99 easy rebate = FREE (limit 2 per household)
Use your favorite points/miles earning rewards credit card to rack up not only some easy miles from this week’s deal, but also make money off of it because of the Visa prepaid card offer!
Remember, if you have the Chase Ink Bold or Ink Plus cards, you get 5x per $ you spend at office supply stores including Staples. So if you bought all three items that should come out to roughly $172.94+tax on the two FAR items. (Gift cards and prepaid cards are not taxed in California. Gift card/prepaid card tax varies by state.) (I also added in a $5.95 activation fee for the Visa prepaid card into that grand total.) Multiply that amount be 5 and you should be scoring approximately 865 Ultimate Rewards points that you can convert into miles or points!
And if you count the $15 prepaid gift card you get as part of the promotional offer, you’re making approximately $5 after subtracting both the activation fee and taxes. It’s not much, but definitely worth the trouble and hassle to make not just a few extra bucks but almost 1,000 free miles/points!
Hurry to your local Staples store though as supplies for these promotions usually run out fast! (Depending on how many miles enthusiasts live around your area.)
