OfficeMax: Teacher Appreciation Day + 2 Items Free After Rewards

This deal has expired and may no longer be valid.

OfficeMax has a special deal for Teacher Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 15th. If you are a MaxPerks Rewards for Teacher member, you can come into the store for a free reusable shopping tote and save 20% on everything you can fit inside. If you stack that deal on top of the great sale items listed below, you can get some amazing prices on school supplies for your classroom.

Additionally, make any purchase at an OfficeMax store now through September 6 and you’ll receive a coupon good for $5 off a $25 purchase at Payless Shoe Source or from Payless.com.

MaxPerks Rewards is OfficeMax’s free loyalty program. Although their website says it is open to businesses or teachers (including homeschoolers), some people say that when they’ve asked at the store they are able to enroll – regardless of whether they teach or own a business.

This is my favorite office store loyalty program since the Rewards you earn can be used to buy other products that generate MaxPerks Rewards (although some people are told they can’t by OfficeMax customer service, I have done this a number of times without a problem). So, you can buy these products, then use the credit you’ll get to buy a future free-after-MaxPerks product. Plus, there’s no paperwork to fill out to get the rebate, just enter your card number online or have them scan your card in-store.

    For the Select Post-It Super Sticky or Pop-up Notes or All Scotch Magic Tape (mix and match)

    you could use the $1/1 coupon from 8/15 Smart Source insert (i got this in my pioneer press insert but NOT in my star trib which is unusual) or $1/1 pdf which is in the coupon data base.

    Final price: ?? but you can use 3 of these to make it a better price!

  2. Kierstien says

    Oh just a question: is office max the store that will accept competitor coupons? if that is the case you could use the 20% off staples coupon from their ad.

    UNOFFICIAL FAQ:

    Do I have to be a MaxPerks Rewards member to take advantage of these offers

    Yes.

    Sign-up online at http://www.officemaxperks.com

    Can only businesses and teachers joing the MaxPerks Rewards program?

    No.

    Teachers should sign-up for the MaxPerks Rewards for Teachers.

    Everyone else should join as the MaxPerks Rewards for Business. Where the business application requests "Business Name" enter first and last name.

    Do MaxPerks rewards "roll"?

    MaxPerks rewards have rolled for 100% back in rewards offers in the past.

    Do coupons impact the reward payout?

    It depends on the type of rewards offer:

    —- if its a 100% back offer, then coupon usage will reduce the rewards payout.

    —- if its a fixed value (buy Y, get $5 in rewards), then coupon usage has not impacted the rewards payout to date.

    Since this offer is a 100% back offer, coupon usage will reduce the rewards payout.

    How long does it take for a purchase to show up online on the MaxPerks rewards site?

    Keep in mind that the transaction might update in stages.

    For an in-store purchase, the transaction information for the purchase should update within several days of purchase. The rewards for the transaction might not update for several days after that.

    For an online purchase, the transaction information for the purchase should update within several days of the order(s) shipment. The rewards for the transaction might not update for several days after that. If the purchase is shipped in several shipments, the transaction and rewards might be updated individually for each shipment.

    The item's online price does not match the item's price in the advertisement. Will the rewards payout be the advertised price or the purchase price?

    These offers are 100% back in rewards. To date, the rewards payout has been the purchase price even when the purchase price has exceeded the advertised price.

    The terms and conditions of the MaxPerks Rewards for Business program appear to have a $500 purchase requirement before reward payout?

    The OfficeMax MaxPerks rewards program has two types of rewards: standard and bonus.

    The standard reward for business program members is $25 for every $500 in qualified purchases (and for teacher program members, the standard reward is $10 for every $75 in qualified purchases).

    Bonus rewards are special deals offered throughout the year. The pay out from the bonus reward deals is not in anyway linked to the $25 standard reward for every $500 in qualified spending. See the following from the program's terms and conditions:

    How To Earn Rewards

    From time to time, OfficeMax may also offer its members MaxPerks Bonus Reward opportunities in which members can earn extra rewards (which may vary in amount) for purchasing specified products or completing a required action. To take advantage of the MaxPerks Bonus Rewards special purchase offers, you must have your MaxPerks member ID number at the time of purchase and it must be applied to that purchase. No MaxPerks Bonus Reward adjustments will be made after purchase. MaxPerks Bonus Rewards will be issued in the next statement cycle regardless of your qualified purchase balance.
