One of the absolute best deals going right now is the 11x deal buying Visa gift cards at Staples as I have talked about in the past. Readers have asked how things went and how did I get 11x? First what you need:
- An INK card
- A Discover card
With these 3 (card links here btw) you are good to go. Since we all should know by now that INK cards pay you 5x for shopping at office supply stores, like Staples, it is a great place to shop for all sorts of things.
Next, one of the reasons I love my Discover IT card is that it also pays you 5% cash back via ShopDiscover for shopping at Staples and the really neat thing is you don’t have to pay for what you are shopping for with your Discover card. However, you do have to have a card to get the cash back.
Lastly we have VisaEdgeSavings that gives you 1% back in the form of a statement credit for shopping at Staples.
The simple results are 11x but I do have to take off the fee for the cards that is $69.50 or as a percentage or “X” of the deal a little over 3x. So net almost 8x for a few clicks. Not to mention the fact that the over 10,000 in UR points I will get if I choose to spend them on Delta tickets gets me 1.25 cents each making them worth even more to me!
Gosh I love all things points and miles – don’t you? – René
