Not many details here, but I've just received a usual coupon mailing from them, and that's what it says - a new rewards program, July 2017. 

Member Summary
=====

June Rewards that have been paid out so far:

Week of 06/01-06/03:
-- X-9 reams (???). Paid 07/15. No detail.

Week of 06/04-06/10:
-- X-9 reams. Paid 07/19 (dated 07/18).

Week of 06/11-06/17:
-- X-9 reams. Paid 07/19 (dated 07/18).

Week of 06/18-06/24:
-- Duracell batteries. Paid 07/15. No detail.
-- X-9 reams (???). Paid 07/15. No detail.

Week of 06/25-06/30:


Notes:

07/15: I received $37.96 in Rewards. These Rewards were made available without a line item in the Rewards Activity explaining where the Rewards came from. It's pretty clear that $27.96 of it came from the Duracell batteries. I'm not sure about the other $10 but I think $5 of it is from the X-9 reams from the week of 06/01-06/03 and $5 from the X-9 reams from the week of 06/18-06/24. UPDATE: I received a PM from a member that he received all of his Rewards for the X-9 reams for purchases in June thru 06/24 on 07/15 and did not receive any Rewards on 07/19.

07/19: I received $20.00 in Rewards. There are no issues with determining where these Rewards came from as Office Depot noted it in the "Rewards Activity" as a "Special Reward" dated 07/01 and in the details noted the payout as an "Adjustment for 6/4-6/17: $5 Back in Rewards on Boise X-9 Ream Paper (sku: 968627, 332063)".

Posted it over at SD...

OD/OM is updating the Rewards program July 2017.
Got this in the mail (part of the coupon mailer).

Looks like the Big Change will be the elimination of the "Choice Member Benefits".(already in effect for new members after April 1 2017)

Also looks like they are implementing
Rewards Member Pricing •Rewards Member Pricing is an exclusive price on select items specifically for Office Depot OfficeMax Rewards members. In store, members must provide their member number or phone number at time of purchase. Online, members must be logged in to receive the Rewards Member Price.
•Coupons and Free Gift offers cannot be combined with Rewards Member item prices. If you present a coupon or if there is a free gift offer, we will do the math and calculate the better price. You will get the in-store price/free gift offer or your Rewards Member price, whichever is the lower price/better value.

ALL SUBJECT TO CHANGE can't find anything online about changes.
But here is current TOS with "changes" listed above.

OD closed the 4 local stores by me so I no longer shop there. Plus the manager's at the stores made price matching a hassle, even when following OD rules.

I made a $12 free delivery order this am, 7-2, to make my ink recycle good for the month. Still free ship for me, so far.

Clicking on "Free Delivery on $9.99" brings up a page where it states the offer is good thru 07/01/2017. Maybe OD will extend it, maybe OD is waiting for after the fourth to change it, or ....

The Rewards Certificates from Bonus Rewards Promotions are made available not sometime after the end of the quarter but soon after the Bonus Rewards items ship.

The relevant section of the Terms and Conditions:
Bonus Rewards Promotions

  • Periodically, Members can earn additional rewards on purchases of select products through bonus rewards promotions. Members are subject to the terms and conditions of each bonus rewards promotion.
  • Rewards for bonus rewards promotions are paid out the day after the purchase posts to a Member’s account as a reward certificate for the full value of rewards earned. All rewards can be redeemed in accordance with the "Rewards" Section above.

* - I added the underlining.

Attached are graphics of when my Rewards "Get My Rewards" updated for the pens and x-9 reams purchased on 07/01. I noticed that at least this time the Rewards for the x-9 reams updated in stages.

One aspect of the new Rewards program that is going to cause confusion is it appears that all Rewards -- at least all Bonus Rewards -- for the quarter are posted to the same Rewards Certificate. Notice how the amount of the Rewards Certificate went from $8.31 to $18.31 after the Rewards for the paper where added to the Rewards from the pens.

I placed my orders for the pens and the paper soon after midnight on 07/01 so do not be surprised if your Rewards Account is a bit behind mine in updating.

(The Rewards for any purchases prior to 07/01 are governed by the terms and conditions of the old program and will be paid out accordingly: Rewards Certificates from separate Bonus Rewards offers within 5 weeks after the end of the offer. Rewards Certificates from all points offers -- standard, bonus and recycling -- earned in June sometime in the middle of July.)

Office Depot is starting to pay out on Rewards earned in June. Unfortunately, OD is placing the Rewards earned in June into the same Rewards Certificate dated 07/01/2017 - 09/30/2017 that it is placing Rewards earned in the third quarter for the new Rewards program.

What was paid out for this quarter is easy enough as those are on the "Rewards Activity" page. Click on "Details" to see which have been paid instead of earned. Then subtract the the quarter's total from the total of the 07/01 - 09/30 Rewards Certificate. That only leaves the difficult part of figuring out which Rewards earned in June have paid out.

The difference for me so far is $37.96. That total clearly includes $27.96 for the batteries. That leaves $10 unaccounted for. I have no single payout for $10 -- presuming the rewards from the 3reams are paid out together -- so that leaves a couple of x9 ream purchases. I am pretty sure the x9 reams from the June days in the week of 05/28 - 06/03 have been paid out as well.

Good luck.
