Last month, Doctor of Credit shared a deal from Office Depot / OfficeMax where you could buy $116 worth of paper for $60 (with coupon) and get an $80 OD/OM Gift Card as a rebate. I immediately jumped at the offer to spend $60 and get an $80 OD/OM Gift Card, plus I could donate the paper to my girlfriend’s elementary school (win-win).
A few days later, Office Depot changed the terms of the rebate so that you had to buy the paper in-store, not online. I was waiting and hoping for the best since I had already submitted my rebate before the rebate terms were changed. I have good news to share. I purchased 2 cases of paper online, submitted 1 rebate form, and received an $80 OD/OM Gift Card. In this post, I will document the dates of the rebate. I purchased the 2 cases of paper on April 10 around 4pm.
Here is the breakdown of the order, showing the original price ($115.98), the $60 coupon discount, and the total price ($60.81).
I then went to the rebate PDF and saw that I could submit the rebate online.
I submitted the rebate a few minutes later on April 10.
The following day(April 11), my order was shipped and I believe the cases arrived that same day.
Fast forward almost a month and I received an email from Office Depot on May 8 stating that my rebate was approved and the OD/OM Gift Card would be mailed to me. The rebate only showed the $40 amount, so I was worried that I would only get a $40 OD/OM Gift Card and not the $80 OD/OM Gift Card I thought I would get.
Luckily, I received an $80 OD/OM Gift Card yesterday (May 14). I don’t have any plans to buy anything at OD/OM, so I plan on selling my $80 gift card.
It all worked out fine for me, and I hope it worked out well for everyone who participated in this rebate. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
