$15 off $300 or more in Mastercards at Officemax!

officemax

Officemax currently has an unadvertised deal for $15 off $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards. Since Office Depot does not sell Mastercards, this deal appears to be available at Officemax only.

The Deal

Save $15 instantly with the purchase of $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards from 8/2-8/8/15.

Terms

Limit 1 per household/business

Amex Offer

This deal should combine well with the recent Amex Offer, although I have had mixed success with splitting payments at Officemax.

Questions?

So where exactly can I see the terms and conditions of this deal?

There is a sign in store. This is not advertised anywhere else as far as I know.

I just added a photo of the sign to the post. You can make out the most important terms, but that is what you want to look for in-store. Hope it helps!

What’s the best way to max this – 2 x $200?

It depends on your goals. $100 cards have a $5.95 fee while $200 cards have a $6.95 fee. So purchasing 2 x $200 cards will generate 500 more points with a 5X card for $1 more.

Officemax/amex deal dead or alive?

The Amex Offer is full. If you already registered your cards, then you can take advantage of it.

Thank you!

Got ridiculous “You cannot use split tender with this purchase” from the cashier

Does this ‘trick’ work at Kate? Or is this just at the cashier counter. I have issues loading the Mastercard gift cards at Kate – but have never tried this ‘trick’.

At KATE the Mastercards should load normally. I just did some today. You only need to use the trick at the normal registers.

You can also load them normally at the kiosk without having to hit “Change Payment”.

Worked great tonight. Had to remind the cashier to take the $15 off but between my wife and I we got $700 on our Ink cards. They only had 3 of the $200 left. Thanks for the heads up Shawn!

I got a different, better deal at my Office Max. This store gave me $10 off each $200 card. I purchased three cards in one transaction and my total came to $590.85 ($206.95 – $10 * 3). It appeared to be hard coded as the cashier had no idea there was a deal. I asked if I could buy more and the cashier said “sure!”, so I got more with same $10 off each $200 card. Needless to say I will be going back multiple times this week.

It seems likely that you just got the normal deal twice, ie $15 off 300 since you bought $600 total.
Either way that is interesting. I will try the same tonight if any are in stock.

If it’s an instant discount, the limit of 1 per household is pretty moot, right?

Gone in South Austin. I don’t think they had any to begin with and did not see a sign about the promotion.

I asked the cashier about the next shipment and he said “with the way things are going we probably will not get anything in”

hummm

Bought 4 $200 MasterCard gift cards in one transaction and was discounted $7.50 per gift card. Receipt shows I paid $192.50 per gift card.

Hilarious how there’s a million mastercards in stock then a quickdeal happens and all of a sudden, they’re gone within 24 hours. There’s apparently quite the readership…

Do you have to register each card to get a PIN number or is there a default that can be used? I am used to VGC and using the last 4 digits as the pin. Thanks

The pin number comes in the packaging. You can call the number on the card to change it if you want. You can find out more info about the pin on these cards under the U.S. Bank section here: https://frequentmiler.boardingarea.com/visa-gift-card-pins-and-example-uses/

I got some from OfficeMax last week. I tried to load them to Serve at Walmart’s register. Cancel and Change Payment buttons both displayed after I swiped my card. Cancel didn’t work at all. Change Payment allowed me to change to Debit. After I entered my PIN, my transaction was declined (I forgot the exact term). I tried this at a couple of Walmarts. Neither one has a kiosk. Is FD my only other load option?
