$200 Visa Gift Cards Online at Office Supply Store

I can’t remember off-hand ever seeing $200 Visa gift cards online at Staples.com before, but they are there now!  Thanks to a tweet I saw earlier this morning I saw that they are available (can’t find that exact tweet anymore to see who did it!).  I have already purchased a few for myself with a rewards credit card that earns 5x on office supply stores.  I also went through a shopping portal that was paying out 2x on Staples.com.  That is a total of 7x points for a $200 gift card that costs an additional $6.95 in fees.  That means I am purchasing these points at a cost of about 1/2 of a cent each – a price at which I am happy.  If you have access to the Discover portal or use Upromise, you can get 5% back instead of the 2x points. 

Visa Gift Card

Once I have theses gift cards in hand (assuming the order actually ships and the site isn’t over-run with points hungry folks), I will likely use them either to pay some bills online or head to my favorite machine at Wally World.

This isn’t for everyone as you are absolutely paying a time and financial price for these miles, but it is a price at which I am happy, and I have many ways to spend the money on the gift cards so it is very low risk for me.

Happy shopping!

    • hdawg, wasn’t removed. Just was in pending status as it was auto-flagged I guess for having a link in it. Should be there now!

  1. Nice tip! Saves me a trip to Staples and gave me a chance to earn some extra pts. Like you, I think the cost of the points is very acceptable in this changing world of reloads etc. I am so lucky to live between a Staples, CVS, and Wal-Mart.

  2. Good catch! Thanks to Evolve we are able to pay down our mortgage with credit cards, so this is a great tip to rack up UR points since we don’t live near a Staples.

  3. Evolve and Chase Ink has enabled me to pay off my student loan and earn 131,000 points in the process; in combination with gift card promos those miles are cheap and MUCH better than just an automatic bank account withdraw!

  4. Which shopping portal did you use? Through Ultimate Rewards it states in the terms and conditions that gift cards are not eligible for the 2x points at Staples. Also read it will not work for UPromise. Thanks!

  5. I’ve purchased Visa gift cards from Staples in the past (like a year ago) and got the portal points. Don’t know if anything has changed.
