      Thanks for the heads-up, Jenny! I really like the maxperks program, we've gotten several freebies and also applied our rewards towards a new laser printer cartridge.

      Oh–here's a money saving idea that I got from a user review on our printer: Our new printer came with a starter cartridge, only designed for 1000 pages, I think. Not many for us couponers! Anyway, after a few weeks, we got a message that said our cartridge was low, then that it needed to be replaced. And once it said it had to be replaced, it wouldn't print at all, even though the printing was still very dark. A user review mentioned the same thing and suggested using some tape over the sensor, basically fooling the printer into thinking that that it's not 'empty'. It works, and that has been several weeks ago and I'm still printing like crazy with it. This might work for other printers that refuse to print once it “thinks” that the cartridge is empty. :)

        Wow – Thanks for the tip. I will try it. I often feel like I am replacing cartridges w/ more life in them – – plus what a waste. THANKS!!

      will you earn rewards on this purchase if you use previous maxperks rewards to pay for it?

      • Suemh

        I called and asked them this because I have almost $200 in MaxPerks due to Office Max's mistake of not giving me the credit when it was due. If I have to spend this on something that is not a good buy, then I will feel that this program has costed me instead of saved me money.

      Use Code SAVEMAX20 to get an additional 20% discount off most of these items!

    • Mary

      So, even if we bought the exact same items when they were part of the MaxPerk freebies before, we can get them again this time and still get the points? And, can you earn MaxPerks rewards if you use MaxPerks rewards money to purchase these items?

        I emailed Office Max the same question, and unlike the comment below, they said YES. Here is the reply:
        Dear Laurel,

        Thank you for your MaxPerks Inquiry.

        Yes. If you use a reward card towards a purchase you'll still receive the Bonus Rewards but the amount that's paid for with the reward card, it won't qualify towards Qualified Purchases.

        I guess the 'Qualified purchases' means you won't earn the piddly % amount that all OfficeMax purchases normally generate. But I am fine with it as long as I can roll my MaxPerks into new freebies!

      I just signed up for MaxPerks and ordered $50 worth of 100% reward items (I carefully checked the product codes!). How long until the rewards show up in your account?

      • Patty

        You look for them at http://www.officemax.com/maxperks around the middle of the month. You need to signup with your MaxPerks Id and password. I just checked and mine for last month are already posted.
