$15 office max deal

 

The Fine Print

  • Valid 8/23/15-8/29/15
  • Limit 2 offers per customer
  • Discount applied at register

Our Verdict

It been confirmed that you can purchase $600 in one checkout and get $30 off. Your best bet would be to purchase three $200 Visa cards and you’ll end up paying $590.85 for the $600 cards. This is obviously a great deal since you’ll end up with almost fee-free Visa gift cards at an office supply store. INK here we come!

The limit of two per customer is presumably a limit per checkout; if the cashier is willing to do multiple checkouts of $600, you should be able to do multiples of this deal. In any case, you can go back the next day or a different time and get more. Stock up early as the Visa cards will run out!

Be sure to use up any Amex Offers that you may still have at Office Max as the end date is soon.

if I use chase ink cash card? do I still get 5% cashback together with this discount?

I purchased 6 x $100 cards on my Amex SimplyCash – checked my Pending amounts, and I have a flat $600 authorization (they did some sort of security check on the card prior to swiping) which shows as Office Supplies, however, the pending $605.70 (after the card fees and discount) shows as Merchandise & Supplies – Wholesale Stores.

Has anyone had Office Max show as that while Pending but then switch over to Office Supplies? Without the 5% cash back on office supply stores, this was just a giant waste of time.

Avi,

Did you find any answers to this question.

I purchased some gc from OM with Amex SC and they also posted as Merchandise & Supplies – Wholesale Stores. I tried chatting with them but they can’t tell me if the transactions earned %5 until well after the statement closes. Def waste of time if they don’t give 5%.

Did you end up getting the 5% for the purchase?

Don’t even bother with this deal if you’re after the $200 VGC’s. I checked 5 different Office Max locations while driving between two states. Two of them even commented they hadn’t had $200 VGC’s in stock for weeks. Another said people with American express cards wiped them out. Ha ha.

So if you pick up 3x $100 = $317.85 – $15.00 promo discount) = $302.85. Charged to INK card, $302.85 x 5 = roughly $12.00 profit. (FREE) Lunch money !!! I’ll take it!!

Not offered at Office Depot even though they’re well stocked.

Just my opinion and I’m sure I’ll get flack for it, but these deals aren’t worth the time unless you’re very confident your local store will allow you to buy three cards at a time AND that they’re not out of stock (including faking that they’re OOS).

In my area it’s a waste of my time and I’m sure there’s people who have had enough experience to feel the same way. I’m just throwing this out there as a data point that’s going against the grain because there’s people in time-strapped situations as I that don’t like investing time with a decent chance of having issues surface and yet every blog posits these deals as if they’re a slam dunk no brainer. Very rarely are such deals put in a realistic light and that’s all I’m trying to do here.

This is certainly true. Those that drive an hour or two do do 1-2k on their ink are hurting their car and wasting time. Sure, if its a ‘hobby’ to them, then they’ll accept the loss. However, people think they are getting some incredible pay off or something, haha.

I literally live across the street from an office max, so this is too easy for me. I pass it every time I get in my car. There are two more within 15 minutes of me- I won’t be driving to either if mine is empty.

Guy in front of me got the last 6 $100 Cards. $200 ones were already gone.

Chicago really needs more Office Max locations.

Considering they went bankrupt and OD had to buy them out, I wouldn’t count on it.

I went to my local Office Max today shortly after the deal was posted on this site, no $200 cards but there was a full rack of everything else, My guess is they are not putting the $200 visa cards out. Maybe call before you stop in so your not wasting your time.

I can unfortunately confirm that the deal does not work at Office Depot. I had the cashier ring up 3 $200 cards and no rebate. Unless you can get a manager to manually override it, you’re unlikely to find this at OD.

That’s so dumb! They are the same company since the merger aren’t they?

Can you go to multiple stores?

From my experience – YES.

You can go to multiple stores and have this deal apply. If the cashier doesn’t care, you can actually do multiple transactions at the same store and get the rebate.
