This is the thread for 2017. The previous discussion can be found here.

The VGCs sold at Staples are issued by Metabank. The activation code for online purchase comes with the card. Cards purchased at store are activated at check-out.
To activate cards over the phone (without activation codes), call (877) 426-2551 to talk to a rep.
To activate cards over the web, www.giftcardkey.com.
The default PIN number is the last four digits of the card number but can be changed online.

The max VGCs sold at Staples.com are $300. No $500 cards. With its $8.95 or 3% card fee, it is only good if there is promotion (or rebate).

As of 5/12/2014, all known portals are dead.

Earn 5x points with Chase Ink, or Simply Cash for 5% cash back

Buy Visa gift cards (Metabank) at Staples ($200 for $6.95) or the website ($300 for $8.95).

2k Limit per transaction / 10k per day for online. In-store is usually 2k but YMMV

Often times, there are promotions with no or reduced activation fees

At Staples, easy rebates. In Store. One per household.

Thank you. Glad to see that they have upped the ante from the $15 Staples card in the last promotion.

Any idea if the rebate is given at the store or mailed to your home address?

Sheesh...... 1 minute of "research" would bring you to the answer. Try searching at Staples.com...

Does anybody know if the rebate cards are forwardable?

I will be moving and don't know if the card will mail out before I move. If it'll forward, I won't worry about putting my current address.

I think mail is mail to the USPS. It's all forwardable.

I finally found a local Staples that stocked the $200 VGCs for this promotion. Any recent DPs on whether you can use multiple addresses for the rebate? I've done it in 2016, but was sloppy last year and didn't get around to more than one rebate at a time in 2017.

Why would Staples know if you are using different addresses. I've used friends/family addresses for years. All fields on rebate MUST be unique.

UGH, I know it was kind of an embarrassing question, but I didn't know if Staples had cracked down on multiple rebates with different addresses linked to the same CC (in my case an Ink+). I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes.

The credit card used is not part of the rebate process. You will be fine.
