Today I needed printer ink. I went to Office Max since I had just opened a Max Rewards card and also knew they had the exact printer ink I needed. Here is the breakdown of what I had purchased.
12” ruler (2) .05 each (.10)
Scissors (2) .50 each (1.00)
3x5 lined index cards 300 pk 2.00
2 pack Canon ink 49.99
4oz white glue (2) .25 each (.50)
3 pk Pink Pearl Erasers (2) .75 each (1.50)
1 subject notebook (5) 5 Free – promo deal
$5 off a purchase of $25 -5.00
TOTAL $50.09 the price for ONLY the printer ink.
Just by getting the items advertised in this week’s Office Max ad (as Max Perks), and taking advantage of the 5 free notebooks, and using the $5 off coupon, all the items (rulers, scissors, index cards, glue, erasers) I purchased above was FREE! How can you not say “Woo Hoo” to that deal! With two elementary aged children in the house, I know eventually I will need these items.
I have two ink cartridges that are empty. If I take them back to Office Max, I get 2 rewards, which equals $2, for each empty ink cartridge I return, the store will put on my rewards card. That is $4 free bucks. You can do that up to $20 a month for any kind of ink. Multiple that by 12 months and that equals up to $240 back a year.
Also at the end of every receipt (that I have received so far) if you take their survey you get a $5 off of $25. It is $5 free bucks for just a few minutes of your time.
