Office Max is running an in-store promotion. When you buy two $50 Visa Gift Cards, you will receive a $10 discount. Each card has a $4.95 activation fee. They allow you to make two purchases (2 cards each), so you can buy four $50 Visa Gift Cards for $199.80 after the discount (4 x $54.95 – $20). The discount should be taken off the price at the time of purchase, but make sure to ask your local store before purchasing the cards.
The GCs are issued by MetaBank and will function as debit cards. The last 4-digits is the PIN.
You should go for it if you have a credit card that earn points for office supply stores (ex. Chase Ink) or even if you need to reach a spend requirements. The GCs can be loaded to Bluebird or Redbird, but don’t forget that these are $50 denominations so it will take much longer to unload them.
