Update: I just received an email that this doorbuster has officially been extended to Saturday while supplies last. I’m sure it’s likely still not meant to work with gift cards, but several readers had success on Friday afternoon / evening. I’m going to make a trip out to the store Saturday morning to see if I can still grab this one.
A reader reached out to let us know that they received a free Google Home Mini at Office Max / Office Depot when buying Visa Gift cards just a little while ago. Office Max / Office Depot was offering a free Google Home Mini with purchase of $150 or more from 8am to noon. Surely that was meant to exclude gift card purchases, but you might luck out.
The reader who shared this told us that the stores he has visited were honoring the free Google Home Mini until store closing while supplies last. A couple of people over at Doctor of Credit reported the cashier automatically pulling one out from under the register.
There is definitely no guarantee on this, but if you are planning to stop by for gift cards, it’s worth a shot. This is supposed to be limited to one per household and again, I imagine it is supposed to exclude gift cards. If anyone scores one, let us know.
