Update: We now have a picture of the sign in-store and our own Stephen Pepper reports that you can buy a limit of 2, but they need to be rung up in separate transactions (otherwise the system will only take $5 off of each card).
A deal popped up over the weekend at GiftCardMall to get a $60 Happy Gift Card for $50. Doctor of Credit reports that there may be an even better deal running at Office Max this week: $10 off $50 on Happy Gift Cards. That’s 20% off (as opposed to 16.667% off) and stacks with 5x on office supplies if you use a card with one of the Best Category Bonuses.

DoC reports that he only had one datapoint, but sales like this are usually nationwide and it isn’t altogether uncommon for Office Max/Depot to offer an unadvertised gift card deal.
Whether or not these cards make any sense for you depends on how you’re able to use them and whether or not you have a use for the included merchants. I haven’t yet seen these Happy cards in person, but I see a commenter at DoC mentions that the entire card number is exposed on the packaging, which certainly seems like it would make them susceptible to rampant fraud. If that is the case, I’d suggest only buying them with a plan to use them almost immediately. If that’s the case on the packaging, I’d have to imagine that changing sooner or later when they deal with lots of reports of fraudulent use. At any rate, if you’re stopping by Office Max/Depot, this might be worth checking out, just be aware of any risks.
