Isn't there some crazy rule with their reward redemption in that you have to have a certain dollar amount of spending before being able to use a reward certificate or  spending reward dollars earned?

Or am I thinking of redemption of rewards earned with recycling of ink cartridges?

You are probably thinking of qualifying to recycle which requires $10 or more in qualified purchases in the month or rewards offers that earn points which payout in $10 increments. This is not a points offer. It is a fixed offer that will payout to the penny.

Can't be sure of what you're thinking of but regular reward point are earned in $10 increment (1000 points).  Anything less than 1000 points is lost when the cycle changes quarterly.

Unless you're thinking of the recycling rewards like bpvh suggested.  Then you need to spend $10 minimum in the same month you recycle, whether you recycled 1 or 10 carts, in purchase(s) tied to your rewards account.  Only then do those rewards earned (by recycling) become valid to be issued the following month.

Okay. They are on sale today for $12.59 each so is this a money maker or will they cancel the rewards or order?

Possibly a MM. Neither the order nor the rewards will be cancelled because of the sale price on the batteries.

Was that a Sunday only price? I guess it was as now online the batteries are $13.99. Bummer. I wish I would have known the online price was cheaper. It will be interesting to see if those who bought at the cheaper price get only what they paid back or if they get $13.98 back.

I do not know when the online price went from $12.59 to $13.99. There is a sale this week on select Duracell batteries at least online. I presume that the batteries in this deal were initially tagged with a sale price, incorrectly, and at some point that was discovered and corrected.

Gift card purchases do NOT count the purchase requirement to qualify to recycle for the month:

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. Additional cartridges can be recycled, but rewards will only be earned on the monthly limit of 10.

Yeah, i thought so too. But it got me confused when last week i was reviewing my purchase/receipts detail online, the visa gift card purchase amount was listed as eligible purchase amount.

If you mean the "Qualified Purchase" amount for the transaction in the "Purchase Details" of the Reward Account's "Purchase History", the "Qualified Purchase" amount only relates to the amount paid excluding "tax and payments made with Reward Certificates or Merchandise Cards".

Two separate qualifications have to be met to qualify to recycle:

  • The items purchased have to be qualifying (aka excluding tax, delivery fees, purchases of all gift and prepaid gift cards, postage stamps).
  • The payments of $10 more have to be qualifying (aka not purchases made with Office Depot ® OfficeMax ® Rewards and Merchandise Cards/Certificates).

You meet the second but not the first.
