Maximizing The Offer
Office Depot and OfficeMax sell $200 Visa gift cards that have an activation fee of $6.95. To get the $15 instant discount, you need to spend at least $300. To maximize credit card rewards, it’s best to purchase two $200 Visa gift cards, which will cost you $413.90. Take off $15 at the register and you’re paying just $398.90. You make a small profit of $1.10 but let’s look at the points that you can earn and other deals you can stack.
If you have a Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Cash card, you would earn 1,995 Ultimate Rewards points. You can also use a Amex SimplyCash Plus Business Card which earns 5% cashback at office supply stores as well. That would give you $19.95 in cashback. However Chase Ink Plus/Cash would be my choices as UR points are more valuable than cash and Amex has been cracking down on gift card purchases.
Also check out this Visa SavingsEdge offer that gives you 10% on your next purchase at Office Depot made with an eligible Visa Business card for a maximum earn of $5 per enrolled card.
This is one of the best deals that we see from Office Depot and OfficeMax so if you have a location nearby, it’s definitely worth a trip. This is also a good timed deal to add more Ultimate Rewards points to your balance, especially now that PPDG and CardCash no longer earn 5X. Also, until tomorrow, you can get a $10 discount on $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards.
