Key Terms

  • Limit 1 per household/business (YMMV)

Quick Thoughts

The best option points-wise is to buy two $200 Visa gift cards. Although you’ll pay an additional $1 in purchase fees (compared to buying a $100 and a $200 card), you’ll also generate $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 Visa gift cards that you buy.

In addition, my wife noticed a Chase Offer this morning on her Chase Ink Cash card that’s good for 10% back up to $11 back, which makes for a nice stack to add some extra profit here.

Rakuten is offering 2x/2% back for Office Depot (including in-store), so it’s worth linking your card before you go to see if it will track. Dosh has 2% for some folks as well.
