Officemax is offering a $15 instant rebate with the purchase of $300 in Visa gift cards through 8/29/15. There is a limit of 2 per customer, meaning you can purchase $600 in cards in one transaction and receive a $30 instant rebate.
This deal is unpublished and doesn’t show in their ad, however I was able to confirm its existence at my local store. In fact, several local Officemax stores all had a sign advertising the offer when I visited.
Deals like this are popular because it is possible to earn 5% back or 5X points with cards such as the Amex SimplyCash and Chase Ink. Purchasing 3 x $200 cards for example would generate a $9.15 profit plus 2,955 points if you use a Chase Ink card to pay.
Visa gift cards sold by Officemax are issued by Metabank. For more info on setting the pin on these cards and liquidating them, see: Beginner’s guide to buying & liquidating Visa & Mastercard gift cards
