OM sells Metabank Visa gift cards up to $200 denomination. These Metabank gift cards can be loaded at WM B&M to BB.

OD sells Vanilla Visa gift cards which cannot be easily liquidated at WM. Also, OD only takes cc for fixed-value gift cards, not the $20-$500 variable load Visa/MC GC - rule enforced and hardcoded in the OD register.

Your local store may enforce their own rules on not accepting cc as payment for any gift cards. YMMV.

Maybe, but you can use them for reloading your RedBird AMEX at Target with no problem.

Even if you could find one that lets you use a credit card, is there an easy way to cash these out? They're all Vanilla cards aren't they?

Don't these have something like a $4.95 or $5.95 activation fee per card and typically a $100 max value per card? If so, you're only netting about $5 or less if you have to buy 3 cards to get to $300..

The key here is using a Chase Ink credit card to buy these. It gives 5% (or 5x Ultimate Rewards points) cash back on office supply store purchases. You are correct that buying them any other way is not really making any money. Its really more of a miles and points junkies' deal. If you aren't sure what the miles and points strategy is, this deal is clearly not for you.

Office Max/Depot is very hard on purchasing GCs with a CC

Not hard at all. I loved this deal last time by buying $10,000 in vanilla GCs using Chase Ink (my stores were VERY well stocked daily). Thanks OP for the heads up!!!!

Is there a coupon to get $20 discount or Discount will be automatic @ register ?
The limit is 2 so can we by 3 x $200 cards and get $40 in discount or need to do 2 separate $300 order

Thank you

Reading your comment I at first thought you were naive and .. uninformed. Then I looked at your post and reputation number, and realized that you are a desinformant.

For everybody's information, Office Max and Office Depot sell Visa, MC and Amex gift cards of upto $200 value with credit cards. I personally have never had, heard or seen anyone reporting a problem.

Furthermore, the VGC sold at Office Max are NOT vanilla GCs, and can therefore be used to load BB without problem.
