Office Depot and OfficeMax stores have returned with its profitable gift card deal on Mastercard gift cards from 6/30/26 – 7/6/24.

Mastercard gift card

The Deal

  • Buy $300+ Mastercard gift cards at Office Depot/OfficeMax & get $15 off instantly.

Key Terms

  • Valid June 30 – July 6, 2024.
  • Limit 10 per household/business (different stores may try to impose various limits that don’t correspond to the ad).

Quick Thoughts

As always with these deals, the best option is to buy in three card increments as Office Depot/Max gives a $15 discount for every $300 you spend. So, buying three cards means you’re spending $600, which takes off $30. Buying nine cards means you should get $90 off, but YMMV as to whether a store will let you do that.

For every three cards you buy you’ll pay $23.85 in fees (3x$7.95), giving you a net $6.15 in profit in addition to any additional rewards. Buying nine cards at a time triples both the profit and rewards (but will likely involve an ID check to make sure that the payment that you’re using is yours).

Here in Portland, It is a waste of time to try and even get these or the Visa cards anymore.
Office Depot/Max has closed several stores in the Metro Area. And the Two that are left never have the cards, even on the 1st day of the event!

I’ll be closing my Ink card, which was offering 5points per dollar, not worth the $95.00 annual fee anymore.


Don’t close. Just downgrade. Your credit score would be affected if you close it.


Once again, too late. Already all sold on Sunday.

People usually really slow on buying Mastercards. A lot of folks still scared of them. Surprised your town sells out so quickly.


Well… apparently, not in my neighborhood. Either Visa or Mastercard, they are all gone on the 1st day of sales.


Just picked up a couple $200 MC GC and the fee is now $7.95 per card. No longer profitable.


Really? They been that for a few months at least. Are you using a 5x card? buy 3 of them at once and you’ll come out way ahead in pts and $$


You are right. I should’ve bought 3 GC. This is the first time at this store I have had the higher fees. There is not much traffic at this store anytime I have been there.


I found out about the sale “accidentally” on Sunday when it started. I was thinking it might be time for it and I had guessed right. How can we let you know about it in the future?


Is this deal coming back this week 6/2-6/8?


Is there a trick to spending these online? I registered at the giftcardmall website, but I still can’t get WM to process it.


MC do not work at WM


Just a data point in case anyone else has the same question. I was able to use my MasterCard gift cards from OfficeMax at Walmart but only when I added them as a payment method to my wallet. If I went through the process flow of buy a gift card and adding a payment at checkout they failed.


Why does this usually get posted late compared to staples deals?

Sea Pea

So what should my total receipt say if I buy Nine cards? I get different amounts sometimes.


$1781.55, the fact that i have that number memorized gives me strange feelings




thank you, i dropped what i was doing and immediately went when i read this

Sea Pea

Your Doctor of Credit was wrong about that expiration date….

Sale was over Saturday day night…

Lying Doctors!!!


Your email said “master card” but the headline link was later corrected to this website Visa. You never sent out a corrected email!
Everybody makes mistakes, but why not correct your mistake and send out a new email with the correct headline?
You cost me $31.80!
This should be a trusted source!


can we buy Visa 5% back gift card and still get the $15 discount?? anyone tried it??




Just a heads up – some OD stores are running into an activation issue with their cards and thus removing their entire stock until resolved. This was true at a store in Beaverton, OR recently, and at a store in Portland, OR this week. The fact that it happened at two different stores is a bit concerning.

Sea Pea

And for that reason….I’m out.


Yeah, it gives me some pause as well. I’ve bought enough over the years, and ran into issues infrequently enough, to know activation issues haven’t been a consistent problem (at least in my case). But the two times I did run into that issue it was a MAJOR pain to get it resolved, with both OD and the card manufacturer pointing fingers at each other. Took at least 2 full weeks to get my refund, with a ton of phone calls and emails in between. (But I have a high tolerance for dealing with that kind of stuff. I can imagine others being really stressed out by something like that.)

The good thing is that OD is at least trying to be proactive here, removing the problematic inventory.


Latest update – Just went to the OD that was having issues a few weeks ago, and now the problem is even worse. They literally are blocking sales of ANY gift cards (not just V/MC), including all third party cards, because they were running into so many activations issues. I just spent 5-10 min. chatting with a really friendly employee who was giving me the low down. He said his store was told they were the only one affected, but I know that isn’t true (see my prior post above). It sounds like there are definitely some stressed customers as he was telling me about a lady that keeps coming back in every other day trying to get it all resolved.

Obviously hopefully this is an isolated situation (even if already affecting multiple stores in the general area). Knowing me it won’t keep me from checking out other ODs, but there is definitely a heightened “at your own risk” mentality that I’d be bringing into it, at least right now.

Does WM let you buy money orders with these anymore nowadays? I haven’t tried in years, what are the new WM restrictions. Thanx, George.

I would like to thank everyone who helped me


Can you share?

Is there a YouTube or blog that tells us how to resell of “cycle” these cards for MS purposes. Stephen mentioned in a recent podcast he does a lot of that but I’m sure others would also would like a simple tutorial on how and what to do.
Thanks as always for your fantastic blog
