# Office Depot/Office Max: Save \$15 When Buying \$300+ Visa Gift Cards

7

Last week Office Depot and Office Max offered a \$10 instant discount when buying \$300 or more of Mastercard gift cards. They’re running an even better deal this coming week as you can get a \$15 instant discount when buying \$300 or more of Visa gift cards.

#### The Deal

• Buy \$300+ Visa gift cards at Office Depot/Office Max and save \$15 instantly.

#### Key Terms

• Offer valid September 29-October 5, 2019.

#### Quick Thoughts

\$200 Visa gift cards come with \$6.95 activation fees at Office Depot and Office Max stores, so you’ll make a \$1.10 profit for every two that you buy. If you buy two of them and pay with a 5x or 5% card, here’s how the math will work out:

• 2 * \$200 Visa gift cards = \$400.
• 2 * \$6.95 activation fees = \$13.90.
• (\$15 instant discount).
• Total = \$398.90.
• Rewards @ 5x = 1,995 or @ 5% = \$19.95.

The terms specify one \$15 discount per household or business, but you can scale the deal by visiting more than one store, visiting the same store on different days or by having a cashier who’s happy ringing up more than one transaction for you.

Staples is also running a Visa gift card deal this week, except that’s only for fee-free cards so this Office Depot deal is a little better.
