    From 6/7/2015-6/13/2015 purchase $300 or more in American Express gift cards and receive a $20 Staples gift card via Easy Rebate.

    • Limit 1 per household.
    • In-store only.
    Math & Maximizing
    The best way to take advantage of gift card deals at Staples is to use a Chase Ink card that earns 5x Ultimate Rewards points. You could also use an Amex SimplyCash Business card that earns 5% back. My scenario below will assume you use an Ink to pay.

    I think the best way to go with these deals is to purchase 2 x $200 cards. The math in this scenario works the same as with previous Visa/Mastercard deals since the cost of the cards is the same.

    • Cost of 2 cards: $413.90
    • Rebate: $-20
    • Total Cost: $393.90
    • Total Profit: $6.10
    • Ultimate Rewards Points: 2,070

    Costco....any time I can make my spend go to 5X, I will use the GC, and leave the CC in the wallet.

    Not much on MS, with a business, expenses' are always there...

    I ran a business on CC for many years..LOC, with air miles...
