How does Office Depot Rewards work?

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.
