$25 Statement Credit at Staples with Amex Offers!

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

I just came across another great Amex Offer where if you spend $100 or more at Staples, you’ll get a $25 statement credit. Unfortunately though, this is a targeted promotion and only available through your AmericanExpress.com account, not Twitter. This means you must check your account to see if you are eligible.  his is for online purchases only at Staples.com (not in-store) and expires February 7, 2015.

Staples Amex OffersTo sync your Amex card to this promotion:

  • Sign into your AmericanExpress.com account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab
  • Find the Staples offer and make sure to select the “Save Offer” button (not everyone will see this promotion in their account unfortunately)

I am 9 out of 9 with cards eligible for this offer, so it seems to be not too targeted. Hopefully all of you are eligible as well! Now, if you see this offer on more than one card in your account, make sure to follow these instructions first on how to sync multiple cards. Do not click the “Save Offer” button right away. Also, make sure to save this offer to your account sooner than later since enrollment is limited.

Taking advantage of this offer:

  • While the terms state the physical and eGift cards are excluded, this typically just applies to Staples gift card purchases online. You can still purchase a gift card for another merchant or a Visa gift card and that will trigger the $25 statement credit. Physical gift cards that are sent to you in the mail come with a $1.99 fee while eGift cards are free. A $100 Visa gift card comes with a $6.95
  • Purchase a free after rebate item. Many times Staples sells many items that ultimately end up being free after you submit a rebate for the exact same amount you paid. American Express just sees the amount you pay for the item on your synced card and doesn’t care/know if you are getting a check back for the purchased amount.
  • Go through an online shopping portal. Many online shopping portals will give you cash back, points, or miles for your purchase.

  1. Wow, this is awesome. Will you be able to definitively confirm buying visa or other giftcards (but not staples cards) will trigger the bonus? Are you trying it soon? Thanks.

    • @egao – I’ve taken advantage of similar offers in the past and have always received the statement credit. When I do purchase a gift card I’ll be sure to update you on my success, just not sure when that will be. Need to decide which gift card to purchase 🙂

  2. I bought a Visa gift card and got an email from amex thanking me for the purchase and triggering the $25. Unless it gets revised later it seems to work with visa gift cards.

  3. Any idea if iTunes gift card purchases trigger this? I note that “gift cards” are excluded from the deal, but sometimes that only applies to the store’s own gift cards.

  4. I just bought a $100 physical Toys-R-US gift card (for $101.99) and got the email from AMEX about 30 minutes later. Worked for me, thanks!

  5. Just purchased Fleming’s gift card for $101.99 and got the email from AMEX to congratulate my use of the my card within 5 minutes.

  6. I’m willing to try buying egift cards to non-Staples merchants, but all the online shopping portals seem to exclude gift cards. Any suggestions?

    • @Pat – I personally went through TopCashBack.com and am waiting to see if it goes through. Currently it is at pending status, but it does say $0 pending, so I am not sure.
