Make 1000 Ultimate Rewards points and $8 with Staples with your Ink Bold card.

Staples is having another offer this week ending on July 20 similar to the one they had back in March.  This offer gives you a $15 Staples gift card when you buy $200 in Mastercard gift cards via their Staples Easy Rebates program. You can get 1000 Ultimate Rewards points (actually 1034 because of the $6.95 fee) by using your  Ink Bold or Ink Plus card. Here are the steps:

  • Go to Staples and find the gift card rack.
  • Look for the $200 Mastercard gift card with a $6.95 purchase fee that looks like this:

200 Mastercard

  • Buy this gift card using your Ink Bold or Ink Plus card to get 5X the purchase price in UR points.
  • A rebate form should print on your receipt, but you can skip the form and when you get home go directly to
  • Click on “Store Purchase” then fill out the forms with the Offer Number and the Easy Rebate ID number from your receipt.
  • Set up an account with Staples Easy Rebates so you can track the rebate progress, but you will usually get your $15 Staples gift card within about 45 days or so.

So when all is said and done, you will end up spending $206.95 and will have a $200 Mastercard gift card, a $15 Staples Gift card, and 1034 Ultimate Rewards points.  You are basically being paid to take the points!  What a deal!
