No Fee Visas at Staples

No Fee Visas at Staples


Starting tomorrow, you can pick up some fee-free Visa gift cards at Staples. I use my Chase Ink Business Plus to get 5x Ultimate Rewards at office supply stores. While Chase no longer offers this card, you could use my referral to get the Business Preferred (which does not get 5x at office supply stores), and then downgrade to the Business Cash (which does get 5x at office supply stores), as long as you have another premium Chase card, like Chase Sapphire Preferred or Reserve to use your Ultimate Rewards for travel.

Stack with DOSH Cash Back

This deal may not work on Visa gift cards, but it’s worth a try. Sunday only, you can get up to $5 back at Staples from DOSH. You just need to link the credit card you plan to use at Staples, and the cash back should be credited to your account the week of May 13, 2019. Check yesterday’s post for more information.

Get 5x Spending EVERYWHERE

The great thing about these fee-free Visa gift cards is that after buying them with my Chase Ink Business Plus (or Business Cash), I know that when I use them, I’m essentially getting 5x on all of my purchases. This is how I maximize my spending! 5x at the dollar store, 5x at the movie theater, 5x at the doctor’s office, 5x on my kids’ field trips and church pledge. That’s right! By using these Visa gift cards to get a money order at Walmart, I can earn 5x on any spending that requires a check or cash! This is where the beauty of the fee-free Visa gift cards really comes into play.


The terms of this offer state that you can get one $200 gift card per household, but users have reported being able to get as many as 10, since the store’s limit is $2000. Your miles may vary and be sure you have the cash to be able to pay your credit card balance when it comes due. Otherwise the interest will negate your rewards three times over.
