A reader who goes by bitachu tipped me off to this upcoming OfficeMax sale. Starting tomorrow and until May 12th, you can buy Amazon Kindle or B&N Nook gift cards for 10% off. Specifically, they advertise that you will save $5 when buying two $25 gift cards. This is interesting because, I believe that Kindle gift cards can be used for any Amazon.com purchases and that Nook gift cards can be used for any Barnes & Noble purchases.
Double dip the discounts with OPEN or Ink
It’s not clear yet whether OfficeMax will have a per person limit, but if they allow at least 3 sets to be bought at once, you can increase the discount by using an American Express business credit card with OPEN Savings. This will give you a 5% statement credit for all OfficeMax purchases of $100 or more. It’s nice of OfficeMax to offer this deal before the in-store OPEN Savings benefit goes away as I reported yesterday. When you stack a 10% discount with a 5% discount, the total discount comes to 14.5%. Not bad!
Alternatively, use a Chase Ink credit card to get 5 points per dollar at office supply stores!
