You can get $15 off $300 of Visa gift cards from Office Max or Office Depot stores from today through 3/13.

Use your Chase Ink Cash Card or Ink Plus card and get 5 points per dollar spent. Office supply stores never charge a fee for retailer gift cards such as Amazon and hundreds more, but these Visa gift cards can be used anywhere! Read about the current offer to earn 75,000 points on a new Ink Cash card here!

The IRS recently lost a case trying to tax a couple that bought millions of dollars in Visa gift cards, which they subsequently cashed out in order to earn 5% cash back. The court ruled that rebates for gift card purchases are not taxable.

Some stores may limit you to 1 transaction, but some stores won’t have any limits at all, which would allow you to scale the savings quite nicely.

If you buy 2 $200 Visa gift cards in store you’ll pay $398.90 including fees and you’ll earn 2,020 points (worth $30-$40) by charging it to an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.

If you buy a $100 and a $200 Visa gift cards in store you’ll pay $297.90 including fees and you’ll earn 1,515 points by charging it to an Ink Plus or Ink Cash card.

You can use the gift cards to buy money orders at various stores and gas stations. Just use the last 4 digits of the card as the PIN number to cash them out.

Or you can donate the gift card to charity and get a receipt for the full face value.

Or you can give away a gift card as a wedding or Bar Mitzvah gift.

Or you can always use it for everyday spending while earning 5% or 5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar everywhere!

Any issues with using an AMEX card when buying these gc to reach the SUB?

Are there really any stores left that do not limit to 1??? I doubt it. I gave up on Office Depot deals already. They became entirely insane in my area (Detroit, Michigan). Last I checked; they had a new rule- gift cards can only be purchased in CASH! That is on top of the limit to 1 🙁 To top it off, I have a $100 dud they gave me which has never been resolved.

Yes. I bought nearly 5k worth of gift cards in one trip recently

What area?

Just an FYI, there was another case written up in the WSJ that split the difference. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

I’m not getting the cheshbon of 2,020 and 1,515 points, if the purchase is even less than $400 or $300.
400×5 is 2000, and 300×5 is 1500.

6.95 purchase fee per card

Zal

But the total is less due to $15 off
