Office Depot and OfficeMax have returned with their semi-frequent deal by offering a $15 instant discount when buying $300 or more of Visa gift cards.

Visa Gift Card

The Deal

  • Buy $300+ Visa gift cards at Office Depot/OfficeMax & save $15 instantly.

Key Terms

  • Expires October 24, 2020.
  • Limit 1 per customer.

Quick Thoughts

Even though you only need to spend $300 for this offer, the better option points-wise is to buy $400 worth of Visa gift cards. You pay an extra dollar in activation fees, but the points you earn will more than offset that so long as you pay with a card that earns points worth more than 1cpp.

The best option of all is if you have a Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash card seeing as they earn 5x at office supply stores. Buying two $200 Visa gift cards will earn you 1,995 Ultimate Rewards points while also making a profit of $1.10.

must be regional. not in miami


There is a comment from a reader on DOC that this deal is also online.


man, just finished the staples vgc deal yday… now this along with safeway’s; can’t catch a breather


I went to office max after reading the article and the discount didn’t show. I am not sure where did you see this deal?


Yes I know. I selected printed receipt. I was about to pay but it didn’t show the discount.

I just came back from an OMax in the Northwest and got no discount at all. This may be spotty.

Melissa J

No discount showed up at my local ODepot in CA, Orange County too. Sad.


I had the same happen to me. office m/d needed to reboot each register.

Richard Bupkis

To be clear: are you saying, you bought $300+ in VGCs at OD, no discount. Then the rebooted the register, you bought again, and after they rebooted, you got the discount?


after they rebooted, I got the discount?


I am here in Roanoke and confirmed this did work today.


Activation fees? When I bought my $300 worth last week I paid $285. There wasn’t any activation offsetting it. Just a straight $15 off.


This is what my e-mail said:

Card Value:






TOTAL: $285


Sorry.. yes… the online offer


Ahhh. gotcha. I knew about the instore stuff. I was REALLY surprised on my checkout that they didn’t charge for the activation fee.


If you’re MSing the cards, the everywhere cards are much cheaper ($2/card). Don’t forget 2% on Dosh


I wish the triple dip would come back


Can’t find the everywhere cards on GCM anymore, did they pull them?
