Office Depot and OfficeMax are running another profitable deal on Mastercard gift cards this week, although it’s a return to an old type of deal rather than their more recent “Buy $100, Get $10 Off” deals.
- Buy $300+ Mastercard gift cards at Office Depot/OfficeMax and get $15 off.
- Expires September 26, 2020.
- Limit 1 per customer.
To maximize the number of points you earn, it makes sense to buy two $200 Mastercard gift cards, especially if you have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash card seeing as those earn 5x/5% at office supply stores.
The $200 cards come with a $6.95 activation fee, so buying two cards costs you $398.90 after the $15 instant discount, meaning you make a $1.10 profit. Paying with a 5x card earns you 1,995 Ultimate Rewards points too.
Some people have had issues with Mastercard gift cards in the past, although it’s been a year or two since I heard of any significant issues, so hopefully those problems have been resolved.
