Update 11/17/19: This deal is back for another week and so expires on November 23, 2019.
Office Max / Office Depot are once again offering $15 off on $300+ in Visa Gift Cards. That’s a nice way to pick up negative-cost gift cards for some free and easy points.
- Get an instant $15 off when you buy $300 or more in Visa Gift Cards at Office Max / Office Depot from 10/20/19 to 10/26/19
- Limit of 1 discount per household (YMMV on enforcement)
To get yourself the best deal, you’ll want to buy two $200 Visa Gift Cards. Here’s how the math works out on that:
$413.90 (2 x $200 Visa Gift Card + $6.95 activation fee for each)
– 15.00 (Instant discount)
$398.90 for two $200 cards plus 1,994.5 Ultimate Rewards points
As you can see, you’ll come out just over a buck ahead (enough to cover the MO fee) and pick up nearly two thousand points in the process. That’s a solid deal.
The terms indicate that it’s one per household, but YMMV in terms of potentially being able to do multiple transactions / visits. At the very list, you should be able to visit more than one store.
