Office Depot Visa Gift Card Deal

Have you been a little sad with the lack of negative cost Visa gift card deals lately? Then you are in luck! Office Depot has another unadvertised Visa gift card instant rebate deal that is worth taking a look at.

The Offer

  • Save $15 instantly when you buy $300 or more in Visa Gift Cards.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per household/business.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 3/8/20 – 3/14/20.
  • Offer valid in store on Visa Gift Cards only.

While the limit of 1 is probably hard-coded into the register, some stores will allow you to do multiple transactions. This varies from store to store and even sometimes from cashier to cashier!

The Math

You can purchase $200 Visa gift cards with a $6.95 fee. Some stores have specialty cards which may work at a lower cost. We’ll base our math on the most expensive cards, because you still make money!

Here is how the math works out on the purchase of 2 X $200 Visa gift cards from Office Depot with this unadvertised promotion:

  • Cost of cards: $413.90
  • Minus instant rebate: -$15
  • Final cost: $398.90
  • Profit: $1.10

How to Earn 5X/Maximize

It is best to pay with a card that earns 5X at office supply stores such as a Chase Ink Cash. For example, a Chase Ink Cash card would earn 1,995 Ultimate Rewards pointsDeals like these can also be useful if you are working towards minimum spend on new card offers too.

Liquidating

Visa gift cards sold by OfficeMax/Office Depot are issued by Metabank and are pin-enabled. These cards should work fine to load Bluebird/Serve at Walmart and work many other places. For more detailed information on liquidating these cards, see: How To Liquidate Prepaid Visa & Mastercard Gift Cards

Conclusion

This is probably the best deal you’ll see from Office Depot and OfficeMax. It’s a good way to add more Ultimate Rewards points to your account especially with many 5X opportunities drying up. Happy 5Xing!

  1. Shawn is THE expert here and will most likely give you better examples than me BUT, I used my cards to pay utility bills that are not covered under another bonus program. ex. Paid my car insurance with a $200 VGC. That left a little credit on my next month’s bill. Could do two or three months worth if I had enough cards.
    Was hoping to buy bed at IKEA for daughter soon using these cards, but from what I hear, IKEA will not except VGC. : (

  2. Shawn, how do you usually cash out your cards?
    That’s my biggest issue with buying these, the pain of cashing them out.
    I’ve been use the Chase and AMEX offers lately to get 10% back at Staples and Lowes for Uber/Target GCs since I will use them and can load them on my app and throw away the card.
