Office Depot Visa Gift Card Deal
Earlier today I reported that Office Depot & Officemax ended their very lucrative Mastercard gift card promotion quite a bit earlier than originally published. It was a fantastic deal. RIP.
Anyway, according to Frequent Miler, a reader has been tipped off that the company will be running a Visa gift card promotion beginning on Sunday. Apparently this reader saw a copy of the upcoming weekly ad which is not yet available online. If this is true, the deal will be advertised, unlike this week’s deal which wasn’t in the ad.
The Rumored Offer
The deal if it surfaces will be:
- Get a $15 instant rebate on the purchase of $300 or more in Visa gift cards.
This is more in line with past promotions that they have run. Expect there to be a limit of 1 or 2 per household/business, although you can sometimes get more in separate transactions if allowed by the store.
How to Maximize & More
I’ll post with the full details as soon as they are known, but generally it is best to pay with a card that earns 5X at office supply stores and to purchase 2 X $200 cards. Each card has a $6.95 fee so you will earn $1.10 profit plus your credit card rewards.
Visa gift cards sold by Office Depot are issued by Metabank or Sunrise Bank and are PIN-enabled. They tend to work better at Walmart than the Mastercard gift cards which is good news for some.
As soon as we get a look at the weekly ad I’ll follow up to let everyone know the full details. For now this is perhaps a small nugget of positive news after the death of one of the better deals we have seen this year. Happy 5Xing!
