Amex Gift Card Rebate

Office Depot Amex Gift Card Deal

Office Depot and Officemax have a new gift card deal this week. This is one is for American Express gift cards and the rebate comes in the form of a $10 OD/OM gift card.

The Offer

  • Get a FREE $10 OM/OD gift card when you buy $200 or more in American Express Gift Cards.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per customer.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer Valid 12/3/17 to 12/9/17.
  • Offer valid in store on American Express® 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 Amex gift cards with a $6.95 fee.

Since the spending requirement for the rebate is only $200, you can purchase  of the $200 Amex gift cards. When doing so, the math works out like this:

  • Cost of cards: $206.95
  • Minus instant rebate: -$10 (assuming face value)
  • Final cost: $196.95
  • Profit: $3.05

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 1,035 Ultimate Rewards points besides the $3.05 profitAlternatively, an Amex SimplyCash Plus which earns 5% cashback at office supply stores would earn you $10.35 cashback, or a $13.40 profit total.

If you were targeted, an still haven’t used this Amex Offer, you can get a 1,000 MR points (or $10) when you spend a minimum of $50+.

You can get another $4 through their rewards program which gives you 2% back, but it’s capped at $200 per quarter.
