There are more Office Max Freebies again this week!

Order as many or few as you like, pay up front and then get it all back in rewards later. Max Perks rewards can only be used at Office Max. You will need to sign up for a Max Perks account (choose Teacher or Business – everyone has their own business of some sort so you are good).

You are able to roll your Max Perks rewards. They do take a little while to come in, but you can use them on future free Max Perks deals and then get more back… fun times!

These deals are only available online but you can get up to 6 of each item for FREE. Remember orders over $50 get free shipping as well.

One other deal:

Get a case of Printer Paper for $9.99 after MaxPerks Rewards!  (That’s 5000 sheets of paper).

Go through Ebates first and get 3% cashback.

(thanks Jeff!)

      so I am new to the officemax thingy. so if I bought 6 , 12pk sharpie marker then it will cost me 9.79*6 = 58.74 i.e. no shipping. and will I get all 58.74 back?

      • Yep! It will take a little bit to get it all back but then you can wait for the next free deal use it all then and then get it all back again!

        • Mrsarkie66

          Does anyone know if you can use the above idea and then when you get the rewards back in the future use them to go in the store and purchase giftcards that they sell for stores such as starbucks, restaurants, etc.?

          • Ronda_in_Carolina

            Oh what a great idea!! Does anyone know??

          • Abrshafer

            No, they have a list of items you can not use your rewards money on (gift cards, computers, stamps, etc).

            • I had accumulated $190 in Maxperks that were going to expire at the end of July. The reason I had so many was that some were not credited at the right time, so they went into the next quarter. Anyway, I did not want to buy a bunch of stuff that I did not need, or anything that was overpriced. I WAS able to buy an HP Mini computer that was on clearance for $249. I only had to pay about $75. When I tried to do the order online, it kept telling me that my Maxperks code was invalid so I called them. They put the order through without a problem. Maybe it was not accepted online because I was buying a computer. I had not seen that exclusion anywhere.

          I totally hate to be the bearer of bad news if this is true, but I actually signed up for MaxPerks a couple weeks ago because they had 100% MaxPerks bonus on a $40 box of paper which I needed anyway. Aside from not getting your rewards on-the-spot, I thought this rewards program was going to be just like CVS. However, I called and specifically asked if I could use the MaxPerks rewards I earn to purchase future reward-earning items and was told “NO”…that I could only earn MaxPerks Rewards for items I paid for with actual money. Rewards are issued on a card and in their fine print it says “Purchases with your MaxPerks Reward Card do not count toward the qualifying spend requirement.” Has anyone had a different experience? I haven't received my first rewards yet so I haven't been able to test it out. I hope I'm wrong!!!

          • Jenny R

            I have been rolling mine for about 6 months now with no problems of any kind. I print my rewards from my account on their website and there is no fine print.

            • Melanieplynch

              Sweet! Thanks Jenny. That's great to hear. Hopefully my local store won't give me a hard time. We shall see.

          • Corrine R.

            I have had no issue rolling mine as well. In fact, I just did again a few minutes ago with an online purchase. Im thinking what they may mean in the fine print you quoted is that purchases using MaxPerks Reward Card dont count toward the $10 reward you get everytime you spend $75. I never get that $10 reward because I have been spending their money for a while now.

          • Shannon

            You can roll your MaxPerks for Bonus MaxPerks. What they mean is that anything you buy with your MaxPerks “gift card” does not qualify towards your “regular” MaxPerks which is “receive $25 for every $500 spent on qualified purchases”. An item gotten free because you used your MaxPerks GC is not a qualified purchase. Hope that helps!

      • Rebecca

        I usually get these rewards back far quicker than the Office Depot rewards. Most of the time I have these within 2-3 weeks rather than the 3-4 months with Office Depot!

        • sandra

          Do you know if you can roll Office Depot 'rewards'? I thought you could bc i read it on one of these sites but then weeks later I went to get my money and checked again on these sites and people were saying you could not. (I sold the gift card at a discount and % loss through ebay but I would still like to know.)

    • Gilli001

      I am new to the office Max rewards program as well…. I went to sign up and the only options I saw were a business and a teacher card. Is there not another type of card?

    • Ronda_in_Carolina

      I have the Business card. Do I have to spend the 500 dollars before I get the rebate for these items….or does that come immediately? Is it a rebate or in store credit?


      • Kelleyharold

        No, the $500 accumulated in spending is for regular “normal” MaxPerks. These deals are “bonus” MaxPerks so you get them separately. They usually show up in your account the next month. You can print your rewards after they are awarded to you and then use them in the store or online to purchase from Office Max. Whatever you purchase that is a bonus MaxPerks item will not be added into your spending for “normal” MaxPerks, though. Doesn't matter because you are getting 100% of the retail cost back already. There are also certain things for which you cannot pay with your MaxPerks rewards, too – like gift cards, stamps, etc. Hope that helped.

    • Shelley

      Some of these items are on back order. Does anyone know if I purchase them now will I still get the rewards?

    • Thanks for sharing the tut with me/us. It was beautifully described. Well done. Looking forward for more tuts from you!
