Ebates Limits In-Store Cashback at Office Depot/Max
Ebates is one of my favorite cashback portals. They often have the best cash back rates and run promotions with increased rates. They also have in-store cash back offers that come in handy and are very easy to use. One of those offers is cash back at Office Depot and OfficeMaxx.
Previously this offer was unlimited, but Ebates has now changed the terms. Maximum cash back per qualifying transaction is now capped at $5.00.
This change has likely something to do with recent gift card offers at Office Depot and OfficeMax. Gift card purchases are excluded from earning cash back in the terms, but sometimes they do work.
Bed Bath and Beyond also earns in-store cash back from Ebates, a rate of 2%, and for now is not capped yet.
Keep in mind that when using these offers, you need to link your card first and activate the offer. You then need to activate again after each use.
