[…] their recent Visa gift card deal, Office Depot & Officemax are running a similar Mastercard deal this […]


Joe. Ot must be a single store issue. Ive been cashing out Dining Everywhere vgc’s all week at several wallmarts in north houston. Some had the old swiping machines and some had the very latest. Theyve worked at them all here. Try others stores?

@Ken. I did not. Don’t get me wrong last week was just madness and I was able to get many 3*200s through out the week. Now that the deal is done I want to go back try again. All the Dinning out Cards were $6.95 (not the $4.95) which some folks were able to get. I am going to buy a couple of these cards and the 5% refund cards to test them out. My guess is the OD deal will come back during the holidays.. Just a fantastic week..

Sam Dunnaby

Thanks Ken… Yeah, I definitely jumped the gun here. But worst case scenario I figured I can use them for spend if absolutely necessary.

So today, I went to walmart, and found out that at my burbank, ca walmart, the load a prepaid card is “70 action code” (for anyone wondering). I deposited 2200 and sent a payment to one of my ccs. I then went to buy a money order, but she said she can only split it into two payments. So, doesnt make much sense with these $200 cards, so I said no thanks. My concern of course is getting my Serve account shut down like Ive heard happening to others. Im staying a bit below the limits, and hoping that helps. Maybe Ill do some other transaction that makes Amex a few bucks like an ATM withdrawal.

Since I was there, I hopped by the Burbank OD, and lo and behold they still had $200 GCs? I was shocked to find them since they were nowhere else. I bought $1200 more. Couldnt help myself.

Looks like Ill need at least one more trip to the walmart and a couple trips to the post office to get the money orders since they can split the payment to as many cards as needed… I just hope both liquidation methods continue to work for at least one more month.


Item 1. Please never , never , never buy into an ms deal unless you have at least TWO viable ways to liquidate that you are somewhat familiar with.
Item 2. Besides the obvious one of depositing mo’s sparingly into your checking /savings/ loan accounts at your bank, or at bank too to pay off your credit card (be very sparing on this one), you can mail them to mortgage companies (for regular or additional principal payments), pay tuition fees, college dorm bills, pay irs , overpay utility companies and use up the credit in future months, and pay off medical bills etc etc.
These are just the obvious ones. – im sure some other bloggers can suggest more creative ways.
Ps: can you tell i went heavy in on this deal too!!!!
Have fun with your 36k ur, which is $450 in travel at chase ink 1.25 factor, and a whopping $540 if you get the new chase reserve card at 1.5 factor!

Sam Dunnaby

OK, so Ive got 7.2k in these cards. I went a little overboard at my local ODs…

So, 36k UR, and about $100 in profit… NOW WHAT? Ive purchased money orders at post offices before but worried about doing 7k in MO deposits within a month. I have a serve card, but I cant find clear instructions on loading limits and split loads at walmarts. Any suggestions on where to find clear instructions? I think all of us need to liquidate soon, cause this wave might spark some new regulations…


Went to three different Officemax’s last night. People in my area are savage. Not a single card!


What area might that be?

Does anybody know SKU or coupon code for this promo?

Didn’t work in Chicago downtown store where it was not advertised. Anybody would know why? Thanks


If youre gonna buy more than a few transactions, dont forget to call your card issuer first to put a spending alert on that youre gonna make mutiple transactions to a certain limit before saturday. Itll prevent card declines at the register.


Make sure to buy in increments of 3×200 per transaction. I bought 9 in one transaction, related only $30.

Raleigh Chen

Bought 3x$200 variable and got $30 off just fine paying with ink credit. Worth noting also that the recently featured “Dining Everywhere Visa” gift cards (that are said to actually be accepted everywhere, not just at dining places) have a purchase fee of only $4.95 instead of the normal $6.95 and are issued by Metabank and are valid for the promotion. $600 worth of gift cards for $584.85 + 5x points on the deal… Works for me.


oh the dining ones work, it was not mentioned on the banner above so did not try , well still fingers crossed about bill pay.


Confirmed. Dining everywheres work at od. And they are cashing out ok at wallmart for mo’s


The 6.95 ones at my OD did not work for some reason. The 100 and 200 VGC are working great.


No go over here. And to think I risked getting Zika visiting OM this morning….


Just bought $400 in variable, 2×200 at my local OD. Total came to 398.90. They didn’t have any fixed value 200 in stock.

No signs were posted to describe the deal or terms.


Buy 3 200s = $600 + fees for $30 off, right?


Never mind – should have read upthread.
