Office Depot Visa Gift Card Rebate

Are you getting excited for the holidays yet? If not, then how about some negative cost 5X action for you? Office Depot has one of their famous unadvertised Visa gift card promos going on this week. Let’s take a look!

The Offer

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

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per household/business.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 11/17 – 11/23/2019
  • Offer valid in store only

Generally the limit of one discount is hard-coded at Office Depot registers, however stores have been known to occasionally allow multiple transactions so it never hurts to ask. 

The Math

You can purchase $200 Visa gift cards with a $6.95 fee. Alternatively, they may also have “Everywhere” cards which are locked to specific merchant types at a lower cost. 

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

Did Someone Say 5X?

It is best to pay with a card that earns 5X at office supply stores. Here is an example:

Chase Ink Cash 5X Earn 1,995 Ultimate Rewards points on the sample transaction above

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 one of the better recurring deals we see for Visa gift cards. The ability to buy these cards at a negative cost combined with 5X earnings potential is incredibly powerful in my opinion. Happy 5Xing!
