Staples Limit On Gift Card Purchases
« on: August 07, 2013, 09:55:26 PM »
Hi Guys, did anyone else notice if their local Staples store put a max spend of $2,000 on gift cards per day per credit card?
Hearing from numerous members that a couple of stores have hung up such a sign..

+1 in NJ, for awhile its been this way it's the state law they claim and the system is set up this way. It includes the fees, meaning only 9 GC a day which then for BB means an extra trip :( To get around it tho you can do 2 purchases of 5 and they won't usually catch on.

I didn't see a sign, but they were not able to process over 2K for me in one transaction. They just did a separate transaction and i used the same card. Maybe the limit of "per card" is not actually true.

I have never been able to buy more than 1k in a shot but they have always let me do separate transactions.

It is 2k in one transaction. Some enforce that as per visit/day and some don't.

Anyone else interested in finding out about ordering GC's in bulk from Staples?!


ETA: The dates it shows as going into effect is 2/19/13. Doesn't seem "new" or "updated."

Definitely - I just read that and didn't know it was possible.  Perhaps we could get a discount.

Like I said, in NJ it's been this way for quite some time and there's no way of bypassing the system.

I don't mind buying 2k a day - no big deal.

That is true, however they are only starting to enforce it in NY & some NJ stores this week.

2 Staples stores in queens, all I know of in the 5 mile radius of mid ocean parkway in Brooklyn, the 2 Paramus NJ stores etc etc..

I guess they are really clamping down
