Gift Card Deals

$200 in Visa Gift Cards for $199.80 at Office Max

The Offer

  • Purchase 2 $50 Visa gift cards for and receive a $10 discount. The gift cards cost $54.95 each. Limit two offers.

If you buy 4 $50 Visa gift cards, you’ll pay $199.80 after accounting for the discount. These Visa cards are issued by MetaBank and can function as debit cards to do things like loading Bluebird/Serve at Walmart. The last 4-digits is the PIN.

This offer is not mentioned online, it’s being promoted in-store. From what I gather, the discount is automatically taken off at the time of purchase. It may be worthwhile verifying that your local store has the offer as well.

The Fine Print

  • Reportedly the offer expires on March 7, 2015
  • FrequentMiler notes that this offer is only at Office Max, not at partner Office Depot [UPDATE: A reader pointed out that he did get the deal at Office Depot]

Our Verdict

This offer could be useful for someone who has a credit card which earns bonus points at office supply store. That being said, there is the hassle here of having to deal with multiple small-denomination cards. To some this will be worth it, to others it won’t be.

I got the deal at Office Depot.


While $50 gift cards can be a pain to liquidate, this promo is definitely worth your time. For some reason, the discount on the receipt applies on each gift card on the order, resulting in the total transaction being $89.90 for both gift cards. Go forth and do your two separate transactions and make a quick twenty bucks! 🙂

(If this promotion weren’t only a week long, I’d be much more tightlipped about it. That being said, I don’t intend on doing it more than just this once – it would cross the line for me to exploit it intentionally.)


At the Office Max in Phoenix, 7th Ave/Camelback Rd, they knew nothing of this promotion this afternoon.

Missed this deal because I waited til I travelled on Sat. and thought OM is easier to work with than OD. Actually, would not have had the time to go to the OD MANY miles away versus OM which is 3.5 miles from where I stay when I travel. Arrived after 9pm.

Didn’t realize the date expiration and actually showed up there at the OM yesterday, 3/10. Staff advised that was last week. Guess that happens when one reads the blog in a hurry….
