Office Depot Visa Gift Card Deal

Office Depot/Officemax has a new promotion on Visa gift cards. You can get an instant discount and net plenty of credit card rewards. Let’s take a look at the details.

The Offer

  • Buy $300 or more in select Visa Gift Cards, save $10 instantly.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per customer.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 11/18/18 through 11/24/18
  • 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: -$10
  • Final cost: $403.90
  • Cost: $3.90


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 2,020 Ultimate Rewards pointsAlternatively, 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 new deal is not as good as previous ones where they gave out $15 discounts. But it is still a good way to buy very cheap Chase Ultimate Rewards points.


  1. Mark,

    Re. the ‘one per customer’ rule/restriction, I’m just curious as to what the definition and parameters is for this….is it once per day? How is a visit and transaction calculated? I had one local store where the cashier (presumably a manager of some type) enforce the one transaction rule as he would not let me separate my purchase into 2 different transactions of $400. No big deal…but it got me thinking as to when I could return and rightfully do another one. Later that day? Next calendar day? Appreciate any insights.

    • Usually they don’t have an issue with one per day. But I have gone back to the same store later when different people were working.

  2. I asked if they had any left and the cashier contacted the manager who personally delivered it to the register. Was approved even though I only purchased gift cards

  3. One could get a free Google mini assistant if adding it at the end of the transaction.
    Worked for mw thi morning in 2 different stores.
