Update 6/20/20: Extended to June 24, 2020.
Update 6/13/20: Thanks again to Jeph36 for advising that this has been extended to June 20. It’s interesting that this is an extension of only 6 days versus 7 days as in the past, so maybe this is the last extension?
Update 6/7/20: Jeph36 has confirmed that this offer has been extended again to June 14, 2020 if you’ve not used it yet.
Update 5/24/20: As per jeph36’s comment, this offer has been extended to June 7, 2020 if you haven’t used it already. This sometimes happens with Chase Offers, although there’s sadly no way of knowing right now if it’ll be extended beyond that date.
When checking the Chase Offers on my cards last night, I came across a nice one for Office Depot/OfficeMax. It’s giving 10% back as a statement credit and is good on up to $80 of spend, although it seems to be highly targeted.
- Earn 10% back as a statement credit at Office Depot/OfficeMax with a targeted Chase Offer.
May 25, 2020 June 7June 20, 2020.
- $8 back maximum.
- Offer valid one time only.
- Payment must be made directly with the merchant.
- Offer not valid on third-party delivery services.
This offer seems to be highly targeted as my wife and I only had it on one card between us. The great thing is that the card it appeared on is my Chase Ink Plus card, so not only will we earn 10% back on up to $80 but we’ll also get 5x on the spend too.
The offer is valid for the next few weeks, so it might be worth waiting a little while before using it if you don’t need to go to an Office Depot or OfficeMax store right now. Not only is that good from the standpoint of not making unnecessary trips, but you might also get to stack it with a Visa or Mastercard gift card deal in the future.
If one of those offers doesn’t appear, it might still be best to buy a Visa or Mastercard gift card anyway, especially if you have the offer on an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card. The $8 statement credit will more than offset the activation fee, plus you’ll earn extra points due to spending $206.95. If that spend is done on an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card, you’ll earn 1,035 Ultimate Rewards or $10.35. Those calculations are correct because Chase calculates points based on the spend before statement credits are taken into account, unlike Amex Offers where they only credit points based on the post-statement credit spend.
[…] you were targeted for the Office Depot/OfficeMax Chase Offer but haven’t used it yet, that’s been extended once again and so can save you an extra […]
Hey Stephen, in preparation for your post tomorrow … my OD/OM expiration was extended again this time to Jun 20. At this point it is pretty much just a game for me to see how long they keep extending it :-).
Perfect timing – I’ve just been working on tomorrow’s post. Thanks for keeping me updated 🙂
Stephen, I happened to be near an OD yesterday for the first time in a long time, so I bought a $10-off $200 Visa GC. As the charge is still pending, I can see that the offer is still set to expire on June 20; maybe this is the end of the extensions. Either way, it will be disappearing from my dashboard, so you may have to get someone else to give you info if this offer continues to get extended.
Noooooooooooooo! Just kidding – thanks for keeping me updated these last few weeks 🙂
Last chance … my charge has posted, but the offer has not been applied to the account yet so it still shows. And now it updated the expiration to June 24. Yesterday when I checked it was still showing as expiring on June 20 (today).
I went yesterday… and got charged fee. so I guess it expired on the 20th
Are you meaning the Visa gift card deal? If so, that was a different deal to this one – this is a targeted Chase Offer.
My offers show Jue 14 expiration. Got it on the CSP and the Ink.
[…] Update 6/7/20: Extended to June 14, 2020. Hat tip to FM […]
When it says “Payment must be made on or before offer expiration date” do they mean Purchase? And even if it posts after the expiration date you will receive the credit?
Yes, payment means purchase. As for if it posts after the expiration date, provided it posts with the actual purchase date, you should be fine. If it posts with a purchase date after the expiration date, I wouldn’t have thought you’d get the statement credit.
Ok, thank you. How long does it take for the $8 credit to show up? A Starbucks purchase I made hasn’t posted after 2 weeks.
I most recently used the deal on June 2. I just received an email today (i.e. 5 days later) confirming I used the offer, but the statement credit hasn’t showed up yet.
I checked my Ink Plus statement as that’s the card where I used it first. It looks like the statement credit showed up 5 days later on that one.
I have it on all 3 Ink Cash cards. Are you sure it is valid on VGCs
Yes, it definitely works on VGCs bought in-store.
Is this the correct website? https://giftcardmall.officedepot.com/deal/default/visa-gift-card-92
Gift cards bought from Office Depot/OfficeMax won’t work because the payments are processed by Blackhawk Network. Regular website purchases and purchases in-store (including gift cards) will trigger the offer.
Will this work buying Amazon gift cards? No fee charged on those.
Yep – buying anything in Office Depot/OfficeMax will trigger the offer, including third party gift cards.
any ide if this is a one time $8 or $8 per day or maybe $8 per transaction?
This is a one-time statement credit unfortunately.

Thanks Stephen, saw this on FM and just stopped by my local OD on the way home. To my surprise the 200 VGC rang up as 196…… is there a $10 off promo going on that you know of?
Interesting! No, I’ve not heard of an offer, but new ones come out on Sunday and so that might be a new one for this week.
Thanks Stephen, I couldn’t find anything either, will let you know if the 10% offer works for me, I read it as it should work, even if it didn’t the $10 off was a nice surprise
Did you just buy one $200 vgc or did you buy 2 or more? I ask because usually the promos are off $300 purchase at OD. If its off only one thats a great offer.
Thanks for the heads up about this deal – it’s $10 off when buying $100+.
will hold out til almost last day to see OD may have GCs sale
[…] Save 10% At Office Depot/OfficeMax With Targeted Chase Offer (Max $8 Back) (Expires 5/25/20) […]
Nothing on any of the many Chase cards I have…
I got this offer on Sapphire Preferred but not Ink Plus. My offer says it “payment must be made directly with the merchant.” Not online.
Thanks, Stephen. I have the offer on all three Ink cards, none on non-Ink.
Valid for online purchases only.
Where are you seeing that wording?
Logo. online in Black. Office Depot in Red
Oh, I see what you mean. I’ve a feeling that might have been included to indicate that it can be used online as well, rather than it being online-only. Almost half of the text in the Offer Details relates to using it in a store, so I think it can be used in either way.
I got this offer on two cards, used in store without problem.
