I’m confused about this offer. In the email that brought me here, it it stated limit is per household/individual.

If this is a direct discount, what’s to stop my wife and I from doing two separate transactions to get two $15 discounts? The only way the household limitation applies is if this is a MIR, right?

I’m looking to stack this with the amex offer $10 off $50 purchase on several cards.

My Office Max wouldn’t let me spilt tender on my last purchase there (also looking to take advantage of the 10 off $50 Amex deal), and oddly even when I only used one card last week it still has yet to credit me the $10 off $50.

Wow, really?

The closest location is almost half an hour away. I’ll be pissed if I go there and they don’t allow it. I’m wondering if this is their policy or if it’s YMMV and you got unlucky with a bad cashier.

I used one of my offers last night and bought some stamps $49 +$1 fee = exactly $50. Got the email a few hours later w/ Amex thanking me for using my offer.

Now I’m re-thinking if I even want to go all the way there if I’m not getting the $10 amex offers + these $15 discounts. Hoping others chime in with their experiences who read this post.

I should also add I used my offer online, but I don’t think that should matter as the amex offer isn’t specific to brick and mortar or online.

The Amex Sync deal for officemax/office depot is only good in-store as far as a know

As stated, I’ve used the offer online successfully.

My assumption here is their policy is no splitting tender, however it’s not hard coded and is YMMV.

I’ve not picked up gift cards from office depot/max (just staples). Anyone know what the lower pin based gcs are they have and the fees?

Best bet from OM for visa or mc are the $200 + $6.95 issued by US Bank

Well, depending on the fees, it’s not worthwhile to use 1% cb amex beyond what’s required for the amex deal. If it were my chase ink card with 5% then definitely I’d go the $200 route.

“Purchase must be one transaction”…this seems to be new language added to these deals, meaning you can’t split tender. I always have varied success getting cashiers to split tender for me. At my local OM I do one transaction, walk around the store and do another…there’s no way to tell the 1 person / household limit.

[…] Last but not least, Office Depot has their own gift card deal.  Purchase $300 or more in AMEX gift cards and get $15 off your purchase (hat tip to Frequent Miler). […]

How much are the activation fees on AmEx? $5.95? $6.95? And then one would have to liquidate AmEx in addition to a stack of other AmEx cards…Who this offer is good for?

@Katrina. Amex Fees are the same as visas. $6.95 on $200, $5.95 on $100. FYI, I confirmed that buying $600 worth does NOT get you a 2nd discount. $15 max discount per transaction apparently.

@Gabriel, so $13.90 for 2 x $200 leaves only $1.10. Not good enough. Especially for AmEx.use miles

That’s precisely why you need an Ink and Target RED Card. VERY worth it in that scenario.
