Office Depot and OfficeMax stores have returned with a new profitable gift card deal this week, although this time it’s on Mastercard gift cards rather than Visa gift cards.
- Buy $300+ Mastercard gift cards at Office Depot/OfficeMax & get $15 off instantly.
- Expires August 21, 2021.
- Limit 1 per household/business(?)
As always with these types of deals, the best option points-wise is to buy two $200 Mastercard gift cards. Although you’ll pay an additional $1 in purchase fees, you’ll get an additional $101 worth of spend which can be worth far more than $1 if paying with a card that earns more at office supply stores such as the Chase Ink Cash or Ink Plus cards.
With two $6.95 fees, you’ll make $1.10 profit in addition to 1,995 Ultimate Rewards points for every two $200 Mastercard gift cards that you buy.
You’ll come out even further ahead by linking your payment card in the Dosh app. Dosh offers 2% cashback at Office Depot/OfficeMax with a limit of $10 cashback per day. Gift card purchases are excluded, but that doesn’t mean it’s enforced.
I know some people aren’t keen on buying Mastercard gift cards due to fraud issues/compromised cards in the past. It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard reports of issues of that kind, so I wouldn’t be unduly concerned on that front.
