Office Max/Depot Caps 2% Rewards to $200-Spend/quarter on Gift Card Purchases
Office Max/Depot’s 2% Rewards program can only earn rewards on up to $200 in third-party gift cards per quarter ($4 in rewards) and up to $50 in Office Depot/Max gift cards per quarter ($1 in rewards).
Office Max/Depot’s new rewards program is now available nationwide. It earns a flat 2% on all purchases, including OD/OM gift cards and third-party gift cards. Previously it was only available in select markets, and it’s rolled out nationwide as of today.
Unfortunately, as part of the national rollout, they capped rewards on gift cards and the like:
- 3rd party gift cards capped at $200 in spend per quarter
- Office Depot/Max gift cards capped at $50 in spend per quarter
- Postage capped at $75 in spend per quarter
In the end, there’s a max of $4 in rewards per quarter for third-party gift card purchases, which really isn’t much. This limit is being enforced already.
Visa/MC/Amex gift cards should earn rewards as well, as had been the case in the past, subject to the $200 max.
I’m not sure if VIP members will earn 5% on the $200 in gift cards, but I’d guess so.
