Staples gift cards can come in handy if you need any office supplies, and you may have gotten one as a gift from a coworker, friend, or family member.

How Does a Staples Gift Card Work?

Staples gift cards can be used like cash in any Staples retail store across the U.S. or the Staples web store. Gift cards are shipped inactive, and you need to manually activate them so you can use them. Activation is easy, and it only takes about a day for a card to become active. You can always add more money to a Staples gift card in any Staples retail store.

You cannot refund or return Staples gift cards, nor can you use them to buy more gift cards.

If you lose or damage a Staples gift card, you can only replace it with valid proof of purchase and receive the remaining card balance. These cards have no transaction or dormancy fees and no expiration date.

There are three types of Staples gift cards you can buy:

  • Physical gift cards come in $25, $50, $75, and $100 denominations
  • Electronic gift cards come in denominations from $5 to $500
