Amex Gift Card Sale at Office Depot/Office Max, Stack with Amex Offer

The Offer

Direct Link and go to page 12 of the ad.

  • Purchase $300 of Amex gift cards at Office Depot and get $15 off. Valid December 7 – December 13.

NOTE: The terms exclude variable load cards.

Since we can’t buy variable load cards, the best option would be to purchase two $200 Amex gift cards. Since the fee is usually $6.95, it would end up $13.90 for the fees.

Stacking the Deal

This would be a nice deal for someone with a credit card that earns bonus points for office supplies.

An even better idea is to stack this together with the Amex Offer of $10 of $50 at Office Depot/Max. That Offer is still around until 12/31/2014.

Technically, you can split the charge between at least 6 registered Amex cards, as reported by Grant, and you’d end up with a great money-maker here. Of course, some cashiers may not appreciate splitting a charge 6 ways or more, so do what you’re comfortable with.

The Fine Print

  • One offer per household/customer.
  • Offer EXCLUDES variable load cards.
  • Purchase fees apply.

Our Verdict

This deal is mainly good for those with office supplies as a bonus category or for stacking with the Amex Offer. Without that, you’d just be profiting $1.10, since you’d have to liquidate them in place of regular credit card purchases, being that Amex gift cards don’t have PINs.

If I had an Office Depot nearby, I’d buy $300 worth of Amex gift cards, and try to split them between a few Amex cards that have the Amex Offer of $10 off.

On second thought, if I had an Office Depot nearby, I’d probably have already used up all my Amex Offers at Office Depot…

Remember also that you can get a $15 Staples gift card with a $100 Visa/MC/Amex gift card purchase from 12/7 – 12/13.

Split up to 8x. I had two CSR at two different stores insist that store policy was only 2 cards per transaction, but then I hit a gold mine last Friday when it was $15 off $300 VGC/MCGC. The CSR let me split 2 x $200 MCGC x 8 Amex cards registered for the $10 off $50 promo. I did 4 transactions like that. YMMV. There are still some rad CSR out there.

Points With a Crew

Hopefully this will work well at Office Depots – the last few offers have only been at Office Maxes which are much less conviently located for me
