Office Depot Visa Gift Card Deal

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

RELATED: $5 Off Visa Gift Cards at Staples deal ends today as well.

The Offer

  • Buy $300 or more in select Visa Gift Cards, save $15 instantly.

Key Terms

  • Limit one (1) offer per customer.
  • Discount applied at register.
  • Offer valid 12/16/18 through 12/22/18
  • 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/Cost: $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 American Express 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.

Liquidating

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

Conclusion

The best deal we see from Office Depot. You get a $15 instant discount, which already takes care of the activation fees and gives you a $1 profit. Then you get your credit card rewards. A good way to buy very cheap Chase Ultimate Rewards.

  1. Wish this was going on for another week. I was able to buy $3200 worth of the Anywhere vgc that had fees of only 4.95. I liquidated $2400 already.
    I was hoping to buy more but unfortunately I ran out of time!

    • Nice – I wasn’t able to take advantage since I am housebound for 30 days after surgery 🙁

      I’m missing out on so many points! 🙁
