      How do max perk rewards work?

      If you use a coupon on an item you are supposed to get rewards on, for instance the batteries- buy 1 at $16.99 get $16.98in rewards, if you use the $1 off coupon will you still get $16.98 in rewards?

      Alsoif you use rewards to pay for an item that is supposed to give you rewards, will you still get the rewards?

      • tala

        if you will use $1.00 coupon you will get in reward $1.00 less.  I would like to know too if you can use reward from the prevouse purchases ( one month old to uy a nww maxx reward items.

        • mary

          Yes, this is what I’ve found, too.  I used MQ for batteries and they just gave me less in maxperks. 

      • Ginger

        For you and Tala, you can use the rewards to buy more rewards items. I have done this. From what others on here have said, though, you have to pay SOME AMOUNT of your own money in order to get your reward. So if you have 50$ in Max perks rewards to spend, you should buy something worth maybe $51, so that you actually pay some amount OVER what your existing rewards are. I have heard that if you don’t do this, you won’t get the new rewards. I’ve always been careful to go a little over, so I’ve never lost rewards. That’s always how it’s worked for me, so if anyone knows differently, please correct me if I’m wrong.

        • JessicaF83

           I haven’t actually paid anything since my first purchase. I originally got the bookbags last year when they had 100% max rewards. I spent a little over $50 and that qualified for free shipping (we don’t have a store near us). When the rewards post to your account (time depends on your type of account) you find something else that has 100% maxperks reward or only cost you a penny after rewards. Its a great  program. They will send you coupons periodically as well especially when you first enroll.

        • mary

          From what I’ve heard, it might used to have been this way.  However, I’ve used perks to buy things without spending any of my own money and still gotten the perks back for the new purchase. 

    • Raynesmw

      Be sure at Office Max to look at the ad I from the newspaper. Last week, there were coupons in the newspaper ad that were not in store ad.

    • rs

      Are some of these things from last week’s ad?

    • Jess

      why aren’t they doing the penny deals this year??

    • Ed In Ncarolina

      The Maxperk items are not listed in the online ad, but are at Officemax main page. However, when I select “more” to see the 20-pk batteries $16.99, I get offer for 10-pk $9.99. Anyone know which is actually on sale?

      • Acdeb5

        i called officemax online and the website needs to be updated still. the offer this week is limit 1 duracell 20 pk aa or aaa

    • mary

      Just a reminder that these office max deals are regional.  My store is having a totally different sale and none of these, except the batteries, are on sale.  Just a heads up to check your own store’s flyer.

      • Acdeb5

        go online to officemax dot com and you can take advantage of all these deals. i always order online versus the store because they have many more deals the store doesn’t offer.

    • Kcreviews

      All those deals are available online. Over $53 worth of stuff for 6 cents after cash back? That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

      • Kcreviews

        I meant all of the MaxPerks (for 1 cent) deals.

    • Londonbridge19

      I understand that with the max perks rewards I am able to use those to purchase other items. How quickly can I use these? Am I able to make back to back transactions or do  I need to make one big one and use the rewards at a later date?
