Office Depot seems to like its gift card deals that aren’t listed in their weekly ads. They’ve returned with another one this week, this time offering a $10 instant discount when buying $300 or more of Mastercard gift cards.
- Buy $300 or more of Mastercard gift cards at Office Depot or Office Max and get a $10 instant discount.
- Expires September 28, 2019.
- Limit 1 per household/business.
$200 Mastercard gift cards come with a $6.95 activation fee, so buying two of those means you’d still be on the hook for $3.90 of activation fees. Paying with a 5x or 5% Ink card means that you’d earn 2,020 Ultimate Rewards or $20.20 cashback though which more than offsets those activation fees.
Both Staples and Office Depot have been running a good number of fee-free and $15 off deals on Visa and Mastercard gift cards in recent months, so it might be worth waiting for those to come along if you prefer for these deals to at least be break even before liquidation costs.
There’s a limit of 1 per household or business, but you can get around that by visiting different stores or on different days. If you have a friendly cashier who doesn’t have anything else to do, they might also be willing to sell you more than two cards in separate transactions.
