I tend to shop at Office Depot a lot, whether I'm buying stamps, using the print services, or shopping for a new laptop. Because I'm always looking for a way to save a few dollars, I signed up for the Office Depot Rewards program. Now every time I flash my rewards card it's like I'm getting paid to shop!

Sign up

Join the Office Depot Rewards program online or by calling 866-562-3872. You can also sign up at your local Office Depot store, but you'll need to complete the registration process online anyway. Don't worry–it only takes a few minutes, and you get 10 points just for filling out your member profile! If you lose your membership card (I think I've lost three of them), you can log in to your online account and print out a replacement card, and your local Office Depot store will laminate it for free!

Earn rewards

Show your Office Depot Rewards card when you check out. If you tend to forget your rewards cards like I do, you can just give the cashier your phone number. You'll earn 10 points every time you buy paper, ink, toner or use the print/ship/copy services. Plus, you'll get an additional 200 points for every ink cartridge that you recycle (up to 10 every month). Once you accumulate at least 1,000 points, you'll earn a $10 Reward Certificate to use like cash at your local Office Depot store.

Choice membership

Your membership will automatically be upgraded to a Choice Member once you spend at least $200 in one quarter. As a Choice Member, you'll be able to choose five product categories (just select your preferred categories under the "Choice Members" tab in your online account) and receive 5 points for every $1 that you spend on items in your chosen sections. My favorite part is that you can change your categories at any time!

Keep track of your rewards

You can check your point balance under the "Account Summary" tab online. Point balances also print on the bottom of your store receipt when you make a purchase—how convenient!

Use your rewards

Log in to your online Office Depot account to access and print your Rewards Certificates. You can also visit the Copy and Print Depot at your local Office Depot store and a store associate can print out your Rewards Certificates for you. Or if you prefer, you can choose to have your Rewards Certificates mailed. Certificates do expire 60 days after they’re issued, so be sure to keep track of the expiration date printed on your Rewards Certificate!

Other ways to use your Office Depot Rewards 

You can use your rewards account to take advantage of Office Depot Reward Bucks, which are online rewards (just like cash) for buying select items. For example, Office Depot recently ran a promotion where you earned 100% back in Office Depot Reward Bucks when you purchased certain office supplies (staplers, pens, file folders, etc.). Four weeks after the promotion ended, Reward Bucks were available to me under my online Office Depot account. It was like getting all of my items for free!
