Couldn't find under that SKU or any SKU?

The reason I ask is that, for example with the mp reams, there is one SKU for online and a different SKU for in-store:For the 5 ream cases:
While I know the 2nd SKU qualifies for the mp reams, it is just a guess that the 2nd SKU for the 5 ream cases qualifies. It would be nice to have in-store signage and I would keep the item in returnable condition until the rewards post.

Of course it might be that your stores do not carry the item.

This is a general question about Office Max/Depot and their rewards.

I made a computer purchase in August 2016 and also recycled 5 toners that same day. I was just chatting with a rep since my account shows nothing for the recycle or the computer purchase. She tried to tell me I had to purchase paper, toner, or ink in order to get my $10 in recycled rewards. My computer purchase should show up in a week she claims. So if she right about the paper, toner, and ink in order to get the credit for the recycled toner? So confused!!

The rep is mistaked.

Per the terms of the program, the purchase of a computer is a qualifying purchase for qualifying to recycle up to 10 carts for the month of the purchase as long as the purchase is not paid for with Rewards and Merchandise Cards:
Ink Recycling
Members can earn 200 points (= $2 in rewards) for every cartridge recycled in-store, up to 10 per month. Minimum qualifying in-store or online purchase totaling at least $10 or more each month is required to earn monthly rewards for recycling. Qualifying purchases exclude taxes; delivery fees; postage stamps; gift and prepaid cards; and purchases made with Office Depot or OfficeMax Rewards and Merchandise Cards/Certificates.
What is probably confusing the rep is that also per the terms of the program, the purchase of a computer does not earn Rewards:
Rewards
Members earn 10 points for every dollar spent on ink and toner; case, ream and photo paper; copy, print and other products/services in-store at Copy & Print Depot (excludes thermal fax paper, paper rolls used in adding machines and cash registers, postage stamps, delivery orders of online purchases of photo products, and subscription orders set up prior to joining the Program). It's like getting 10% back.
The Rewards points from recycling do not post to the Rewards Accounts at all until Office Depot is nearly ready to post the Rewards Certificates. When the Rewards points from recycling do post to the Rewards Accounts, they will post only to the "Account Summary" for that month not the "Purchase Details" for that transaction in the "Purchase History". Soon after the Rewards points from recycling post, they will be made available as a Rewards Certificate with all other Rewards points earned during that month. This usually occurs sometime in the middle of the month in the month after the transactions earning the Rewards points. AKA earn Rewards points in August, Rewards points post mid-September and Rewards Certificates from Rewards points made available soon after a little later mid-September.

That's kind of what I figured. I even copied and pasted the info Office Max has online about recycled rewards and she kept saying I was wrong. Hopefully everything shows up soon. My computer purchase was first week of August. The computer purchase isn't showing under Account Summary, so that had me worried. Hopefully it shows up soon. I had computers selected as a Choice Member option, so it should be fine.

recycling at ODOM is simple spend, staples requires additional carts purchase, no?

In case you do not know, "Choice Member" has to be earned and applies to the quarter after the quarter the qualifying purchases occur:
Choice Member Benefits
Members with a minimum of $200 qualifying quarterly purchases will be eligible to receive additional benefits during the following calendar quarter. Qualifying purchases exclude purchases of third party gift and prepaid cards and postage stamps; taxes; delivery fees; and purchases made with Office Depot or OfficeMax Rewards and Merchandise Cards.
I have been a "Choice Member" for once or twice for a quarter during the time I have been a Rewards member but I have never made a purchase in my five categories while a "Choice Member" -- first time forgot to make the selections -- so I do not know the details of how the "Choice Member" Rewards post.

Not to mention not everyone who has an OD/OM nearby has a Staples nearby.

And the use of Rewards offers to qualifying for the recycling program.

Hmmm. I don't know the particulars either since this is the first time I've used it. The CS seemed to think I would get it. We'll see!
