- Limit one (1) offer per customer.
- Discount applied at register.
- Offer valid August 29 – September 4th.

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!
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, but if you are comfortable and know they work for you then go for it.
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
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 2,060 Ultimate Rewards points. Alternatively, an American Express SimplyCash Plus which earns 5% cashback at office supply stores would earn you $20.20 cashback. But might be best to steer clear of gift card purchases with Amex cards.
Normal Visa gift cards sold by Officemax/Office Depot are issued by Metabank and are pin-enabled. These cards should work fine to load 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
This is one of the best deals out there when it comes to Visa gift cards. While it is not as easily scalable as the Staples fee free deals it does come with a small profit to offset liquidation costs.
