Office Depot Deal Just Got More Profitable! – Last Day for This $$$ Maker
Office Depot and OfficeMax stores have a promotion on Visa gift cards. It started on 7/29 and today is the last day to take advantage of it. What’s interesting about this promotion, is that it is twice as good as advertised. It’s an easy moneymaker.
The promotion is advertised as:
- Buy $300 or more in select Visa Gift Cards, save $10 instantly.
But you can actually get a $20 discount. That is because the $10 instant discount is coming off twice. To trigger the extra $10 discount, enter your Office Depot rewards number. You will receive a total of $20 when you purchase $300 or more in Visa gift cards.
- Limit one (1) offer per customer.
- Discount applied at register.
- Offer valid 7/29/18 through 8/4/18
- Offer valid in store on Visa® gift cards only.
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: -$20
- Final cost: $393.90
- Profit: $6.10
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 Plus/Cash card would earn 1,970 Ultimate Rewards points. Alternatively, an Amex SimplyCash Plus which earns 5% cashback at office supply stores would earn you $19.70 cashback.
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 good deal just got a lot better. With a $20 discount, you make an instant profit and you get your free credit card rewards or cashback. Today is the last day to take advantage of this offer and hopefully you can still find gift cards in stock.
