I’m a bit late reporting this offer, but here goes: OfficeMax is currently running an in-store promotion in which you will save $15 for purchasing $150 worth of American Express gift cards. Unfortunately, the terms explicitly disallow $200 denominations. Best bet: buy three $100 Amex gift cards and the total should ring up with $30 off. Each card has a $5.95 activation fee, so your total should come to $287.85. If I did my math correctly, that’s only a 4 percent discount off the $300 face value, but remember that you can pay with a card that earns bonus points at office supply stores (such as a Chase Ink card) and do pretty well.
You could also, most likely, use these cards to buy Staples $50 e-gift cards to get $10 bonus ePromo cards as I reported earlier today.
