Verdict

You've got nothing to lose with Office Depot Rewards — especially if you shop online. When you make an account on its website or app, you'll automatically start earning rewards on purchases. But keep an eye on your email or account so you don't miss your certificate.

How does Office Depot Rewards work?

Office Depot Office Max Rewards is free to join. Customers earn 2% back in rewards until they spend $500 or more in a calendar year and become VIP members. VIP Reward members can earn 5% back in rewards and unlock free shipping with no minimum. So instead of spending $150 to earn a $3 reward certificate, VIP members only need to spend $60.

Members can recycle up to 10 ink and toner cartridges a month and get $2 back per cartridge. And you'll also get $2 back in rewards for leaving reviews — up to three per month.

Here's where it gets tricky. Office Depot issues certificates once a month when you've earned at least $3 in rewards. Unissued points expire at the end of each calendar quarter: March, June, September and December.

You'll get an email on the second Monday of each month letting you know if you have a certificate. And once issued, you have 60 days to redeem it before it expires.

  • If you have an Office Depot credit card, you'll get special rewards promotions when you link your rewards account to your credit card.
