Office Depot Visa Gift Card Rebate

Office Depot and Officemax have a new profitable promotion this upcoming week with a discount on Visa gift card. Let’s take a look at the details.

The Offer

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

See ad here.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per customer.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 4/8/18 through 4/14/18.
  • 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.

Visa SavingsEdge will also save you 10%, up to $5.

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. Until tomorrow you can also get $10 off $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards.

Happy 5Xing!

  1. Good info. I popped into one of my local ODs a few days ago and seems like they didn’t have any $200 visas left. I wonder how the rest of them are or if they plan to restock.

  2. I’m dissapointed to see this because I just finished maxing out the Mastercard Office Max sale that began 4/1/18 which only had a $10 instant rebate.

  3. Someone please explain: “But might be best to steer clear of gift card purchases with Amex cards.” Why should we not purchase gift cards with AMEX cards? Thank you.

    • Amex has access to level 3 credit card data on office supply store purchases. They can see exactly what you are purchasing. I think buying gift cards with an Amex card is only a problem when you’re trying to earn the bonus. After you earn the bonus, it shouldn’t be a problem unless you’re abusing the system.
