Officemax Now Selling $500 Variable Load Visa & MC Gift Cards

Variable Visa sold by Officemax.

UPDATE: Unfortunately OfficeMax is now cash-only for variable load gift card purchases.

Many Officemax locations have started to sell variable Visa & Mastercard gift cards which can be loaded with up to $500 each for a fee of $5.95.

Some people have been reporting that the fee only rings up at $3.95 for the Visas. Additionally, it seems like the Mastercard gift cards aren’t ringing up properly yet. (Update: Mastercards are now ringing up properly as of 10/20/15. A $500 card costs $505.95.)


  • The Visa cards are issued by Metabank and should work at stores like Walmart and Family Dollar as debit cards. Use the last four digits as the PIN.
  • The Mastercards are issued by U.S. Bank and have some quirks when loading at Walmart. You can find more info here.
  • Rene’s Points is reporting that these cards can be purchased with a credit card such as the Chase Ink which earns 5X points.
