Office Depot Visa Gift Card Rebate

Gift card deals at office supply stores have been plentiful in the last few weeks. Office Depot and OfficeMax now have a new profitable promotion this week with a discount on Visa gift cards. It’s being promoted in stores. Let’s take a look at the details.

The Offer

  • Save $15 instantly when you buy $300 of Visa Gift Cards.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per customer.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 12/15 – 12/21/19.
  • 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.

Generally the best option is to purchase 2 of the $200 Visa gift cards. When doing so, the math works out like this:

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

Maximize

It is best to pay with a card that earns 5X at office supply stores such as a Chase Ink Cash/Plus. For example, a Chase Ink card would earn 1,995 Ultimate Rewards pointsAlternatively, an Amex SimplyCash Plus which earns 5% cashback at office supply stores would earn you $19.95 cashback. But might be best to steer clear of gift card purchases with Amex cards.

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. If you prefer Staples, they have a no fee Visa deal this week.
