Quick Thoughts

Note that Mastercard gift cards have been subject to a higher rate of problems than Visa gift cards in the past. I haven’t kept up with recent data points on that, but if you buy these, I recommend using them as soon as you can.

That said, if you’re buying, make sure you’re using a card that earns one of the best category bonuses at office supply stores. For example, with the Chase Ink Cash card, you’d earn 1,000 Ultimate Rewards points for each $200 Mastercard you buy. If you can buy 5 at a time, that’s potentially 5,000 points per day. Alternatively, this could be an easy way to pick up spend towards a big spend bonus. Note that there is usually a limit of 1 per customer, this week’s ad states 5 per customer per day.
