Staples is offering 20% off when you buy $50 in select gift cards. The ad shows Toys R Us, Xbox and Petco GCs. More GCs might be eligible (need to check when deal goes live).

 

There is also a 'Get a $20 Staples® Gift Card

after Staples® easy rebate' when you buy $300 in American Express® Gift Cards. Adding this in case it is possible to double dip on the discounts.

PS: One of CAG user confirmed this works in-store but is applicable to GCs only for $50/multiple of $50s. Credits: Steve Box

I assume Toys r Us sells Psn cards and that you can use gift cards to buy them--does anyone know?

Anyone know how this works? Is it supposed to be automatic or a code?

2 weeks ago it just worked.  I bought two $25 XBox live cards.  $10 came off.  Cashier was aware of promotion but didn't do anything special to get it to work.  Just scanned them and it came right up.

I believe it ONLY works in store.  At least that is what people said 2 weeks ago when the did the same promo.  It is in my local stores flyer for this week.

So you can buy separate gift cards and as long as they add up over $50 you're good?

I was just at a store...said that gift cards must be from the same place...but there was nothing in store to indicate which gift cards work, so I left without anything.

No you can't buy PSN cards with a gift card cause they consider the PSN card a gift card. I found this out a couple a weeks ago when I tried to buy one.

Are PSN cards not part of this deal?

I was wondering the same thing. Curious about iTunes cards too.

I went. Xbox cards worked. It wouldn't work with the toys r us cards though. I just left with Xbox cards. Also the register only Let me do two $25 cards per transaction to get the deal. I had to do two separate transactions.

If this worked on best buy gift cards, I would be so happy.

If you were really going all out on stocking up Xbox credit, could you buy $300 worth of Amex cards then use those Amex cards and the staples gift card to buy Xbox credit at 20% off?

Not seeing this in the weekly ad for San Francisco, sadly.

They didn't have it advertised anywhere the week of Black Friday, but the deal was good...

Same with Staples if anyone is wondering. That is, you can't use a Staples gift card to buy another gift card.

Does anyone know if Staples stores even sell PSN cards?  I checked their website but their website doesn't seem to have them.

Yes, they do. At least, my store does.

Was able to get 2x$25 XBL and 1x$50 ToysRUs to work.

My staples only had $20 denomination for PSN and no combination would work sadly.

I went to Staples and only the three cards shown in the ad worked, and they had to be the $50 denomination cards (i.e. x2 of the $25 Toys R Us gift certificates did not work). They were out of the $50 Toys R Us cards on the floor but a manager found more in the back. I tried to get other gift cards to work (e.g. Amazon) and they did not scan with the 20% off savings) :(

I bought 2 $25 Xbox cards with no problem and no intervention required just a few hours ago.

Any limits on the TRU gift cards at Staples? I would like to buy $400 worth (i.e. PS4 Pro). Can I do that all in one visit?

IIRC their website says the limit is like $2000 for regular gift card purchases. Not sure about the sale, though. My area's weekly ad didn't have much detail in the fine print.
