The title says it all. Staples is currently having a gift card sale for 20% off select gift cards. It only applies to $50 cards not $25. One of the gift card brands available is: Toys R Us. This means you can buy a $50 Gift Card for $40.
Cardpool.com is currently buying Toys R Us at 81.5%. This means you’ll get $40.75 for each $50 gift card you mail in. Essentially you’ll make a profit of 75 cents per $50 card. You’ll also earn whatever reward points your credit card offers. If you have the Chase Ink+ or Chase Ink Cash, you’ll get even more back (200 UR) since you earn 5x UR for Office Supply Store purchases. It’s also a great way to meet minimum spending for free.
Cost and Earnings Summary:
- Cost: $40
- Payout: $40.75
- Earned Rewards: 200 UR = ~$2-3
Keep in mind there is no limit stated on the weekly advertisement. This means this deal scales up pretty easily depending on how many $50 cards you want to buy. It is valid in-store from 12/4/16-12/10/16 or until supplies last. I was able to clear out most of the $50 Toys R Us gift cards at my local Staples.
