Visa Gift Cards: $15 Off $300 at Office Max, $600 for $591

The Offer

  • Purchase $300 in Visa gift cards at Office Max and receive an instant $15 discount at the register.

This offer is not found on the website but is being shown in some/all Office Max locations.

$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.

Will this work with $200 Vanilla cards? My local OD doesn’t sell the regular Debit Visa cards.

This is OM, I don’t think the same deal applies at OD At least it didn’t last time.

Like a retard, I went to Staples and was confused they had no idea what I was talking about.

I went to a local OM, only one $200 vgc left, they hide a bunch of $100 vgc in the drawer, so i searched and found them, picked 4, paid $600 in the end with ink, nice deal

Just visited 4 stores in Pittsburgh and was only successful at 1. $797.80 for $800 in VGCs and 4,000 UR points is still not bad for 90 minutes of driving around. Thanks for posting!

The only $200 visa gift cards that were sold at my local Office Max were $50 x 4 packs – with a $15.95 activation fee. I looked high and low for single $200 cards and couldn’t even find a place where they would belong if they had them.

Avi, if your local Office Max had any of the $200 VGCs in stock they would be right next to the 4 packs. Most likely they were sold out and only had 4 packs and $100 cards left. This was the case at my local Office Max too. When they’re in stock they’re right next to the packs.

Four stores: One had $200 cards, two had $100 cards and one had neither. Even the $100 cards are a bargin if your trying to meet a minimum spend. I’ll be checking back tomorrow.

Can you do it online?

NoonRadar

Do what online the deed or this deal?

J/k, can’t do it online, its an in-store deal only, and it comes up periodically.

Jim

Can you go to multiple stores?

Randy

From my experience – YES.

Justin

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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!!
