Recently, I read an article at MoneyGreenLife titled “Get $150 In Staples Gift Cards By Buying Gift Cards at Staples“. It describes how you can get $150 worth of free Staples gift cards, which could come very handy in preparation for the holiday spending season. The best way to take advantage of this free gift cards is to spend $1000 to buy VISA or MasterCard prepaid gift cards using one of your credit cards that accumulate points. You can use them to spend anywhere just like a debit card. However, be aware that there is an activation fees for these gift cards that you buy, totaling $34.75. So, in the end you will gain $115.25. I think this is still worth it because not only do you get more than $100 worth of Staples gift cards, you also accumulate credit card points. If $1000 is too high, you can spend as little as $100 to take advantage of this offer. I recommend spending at least $200 so that you can maximize the activation fee. You can easily submit a Staples online rebate form, which even tracks rebate status.
