I don’t think you should sit on gift cards for too long but this is the right time to stock up in preparation for the holiday sales. Only buy gift cards if you are sure to use it.
I’ve used up all my Home Depot Gift cards and these Happy Guy Gift cards would work out to 20% off.
- Discount: Staples discounted these cards from $51.99 to $46.79
- Cashback: RetailMeNot currently pays cashback back for gift cards. It may only be Staples branded gift cards that are excluded
- Payment: American Express Business Gold Rewards card with 10% back via AMEX deals. Chase Ink Visa would also work here with 5% for Office Supply Stores
Estimated Total: $140.37 + 0.00 (no tax on gift cards) – 5.00 (cashback on 80 spend) – 14.03 (AMEX Deals 10%) = $121.34 + 280 AMEX Membership Rewards for $150 worth of store gift cards
You can buy anything you want with proper planning
