We’re back at Office Depot/Office Max again this week and we’re scoring BIG! Our secret saving strategy here is to get in, get the loss leaders (items priced so low, the retailer actually loses money), and get out without making impulse buys. Here’s what you need to know about shopping at Office Depot/Office Max:

1. If you don’t have an Office Depot/Office Max Rewards card, sign up in-store or online.

2. You must reach $5.00 (penny items included) to get the advertised penny prices.

3. To help you reach the $5.00 minimum, look for items with rebates. Your out-of-pocket cost may be a little higher, but you get money back!

4. After you've reached the $5.00 minimum, STOCK UP and purchase the limit of each penny deal.

This week at Office Depot/Office Max, multipurpose paper reams are on sale for $6.00 and you get $5.00 back in Rewards, making the final price $1.00. You will need an Office Depot/Office Max Rewards card to receive rewards. After your purchase, your Rewards will be added to your account, and once your reach $10.00, you can print out a certificate to redeem in-store.
