Maximizing The Offer
Office Depot and OfficeMax carry $200 Visa Gift Cards with a $6.95 fee. To qualify for the instant discount, you need to purchase two of these. That would cost you $413.90, but after $10 instant discount, your final cost will be $403.90. That’s a small loss of $3.90.
These deals are best when combined with a Chase Ink Cash/Bold/Plus credit card since they earn you 5X Ultimate Rewards at office supply stores. That gives you 1,995 UR points when purchasing two gift cards. Check out Visa SavingsEdge for some more savings.
You can also use a Amex SimplyCash Plus card which earns 5% cashback, or $19.95. This quarter you can also use Chase Freedom through a mobile wallet to earn 5X, if you haven’t maximized it already.
You can get another $4 total through their rewards program which gives you 2% back, but it’s capped at $200 per quarter.
This is not the best deals that we see from Office Depot and OfficeMax, but it’s still a profitable promotion. If you have a location nearby, it’s worth a trip. 5X opportunities have been drying up, so these deals are some of the best opportunities if you need Ultimate Rewards.
