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.

Visa Gift Card

The Deal

  • 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

Key Terms

  • Limit of 1 discount per household (YMMV on enforcement)

Quick Thoughts

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.

I wonder what the marketing plan for OM/OD is here. These discounted VCG sales have been coming pretty close together. There is obviously no profit for it in giving $1.10 payback + whatever merchant fees they have to pay VISA.

I’m guessing that some people that buy these cards don’t use them all the way up and that Blackhawk is running the promotion in an effort to get more people to buy these and not use them all the way up.

So do I just go to the store and use one of my Chase cc and I will get 5X?

No, you have to use a card that specifically earns 5x at office supply stores.

So Chase Sapphire and Freedom Unlimited don’t qualify?

Correct. Chase Sapphire and Freedom Unlimited will just earn at their respective rates. 1UR for CSR, and 1.5UR for CFU.

If I am allowed to buy more than 400 in gift cards in one visit, can I buy $800 with one purchase to get the discount,($15 X 2) or do I need to do separate purchases (400 X 2) to get the $15 off?

No, You have to do it in 2 separate transactions $400 each to get $15 off each time.
