100% back in Rewards on 24pk of AA Energizer Max alkaline batteries

If you are a frequent Office Depot customer, and you are looking to stock up on Energizer AA alkaline single-use batteries, their 100% rewards promotion is back. The offer is this: you receive 100% back as Rewards (on the product price; not the sales tax) on a 24pk of Energizer Max AA alkaline batteries. You can buy two of these per day, each day, for the week of Sunday 1/5/14 until the close of business on Saturday 1/11/14. This is good for online, brick and mortar and by phone purchases.

If you want to max out on this deal, it is two 24pks per day, for seven days (Sunday AM until Saturday PM), so you will end up with 14 24pks. A few weeks later, you will receive the purchase price back as Office Depot Rewards. The sales tax is not covered/included. You receive Rewards (think along the lines of Office Depot store credit with an expiration date), not cash/check!

The offer is only good on this specific 24pk, Office Depot item #626-049, not every Energizer set. You can check availability, terms, conditions, and local store hours through the Office Depot website.

TIP: if you are not familiar with how these rewards work, do not jump in unless you research them first. You cannot easily convert Office Depot rewards to cash, and you cannot roll them like you can with Office Max rewards. In other words, if you are not a frequent Office Depot shopper, you have to plan how you are going to spend them before you commit to the purchase. I've done these a few times, and if you follow the rules and the deadlines and understand the terms and restrictions, they are reliable.

eBay Bucks changes starting 1/1/14: only quarterly balances of $5+ will be paid

eBay is making changes to their "eBay Bucks" rewards program starting January 1, 2014. With the new terms, your quarterly rewards total will only be sent to you if it is $5 or more. If it is under $5, it will disappear into the void, and cannot be carried over to the next quarter. You can learn more through the eBay Bucks FAQ page.

In other words, you must spend at least $100 every quarter in order to receive eBay Bucks. eBay Bucks are paid at a flat rate of 2% of your purchases (only the purchase price; not shipping/handling/taxes/fees). Occasionally they have additional offers. You can also earn eBay Bucks by participating in their "Trial Pay" offers (eg start a first-time ever Hulu+ free trial, and get $X eBay Bucks).

AMEX cardholders (YMMV): buy $75+ at Amazon, get $25 statement credit (may be targetted)

If you have an American Express credit card of any kind, check the "Offers for You" section on their website (after you logon to your account) or check your email if you are in their emailing lists. The offer is this: "Get a one-time $25 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $75 or more online at Amazon.com by 12/31/2013. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/13". Check all the details over there. You must manually enroll for the offer by simply clicking on the option next to the offer. I have no way of knowing whether everyone is offered this, or it may be targetted based on credit card (I am seeing it on an Amex Blue).

American Express Card Holders: Offers include Statement Credits on Various Popular Electronics Retailers that Sell Cameras (YMMV; may be targetted)

Please note this is a YMMV promotion, it may be targeted or semi-targeted or not. I am using my own account as a guinea pig (AMEX Blue; this is a poor blog, we can't afford the designer AMEX cards!), so the offers may (or may not) be different in your situation. If you have an American Express credit card of any kind, logon to your account and check the "Offers For You" tab on their website. It is on the right of the "Latest Transactions" tab.

These are statement credit offers, meaning you buy something and you get a predefined amount back as an AMEX Statement Credit later on. Each promotion has its own terms, conditions, restrictions and deadlines, so be sure to read them before purchase! Some may be good online, others at brick and mortar, others at both places. Some of the places that sell cameras that have offers:

+ spend $79+ at Walmart, get $20 statement credit
+ spend $100+ at Sony, get $25 statement credit
+ spend $100+ at Tigerdirect, get $30 statement credit
+ spend $150+ at Zappos, get $30 statement credit
+ spend $200+ at Abt Electronics, get $20 statement credit
+ spend $250+ at Best Buy, get $25 statement credit
+ spend $599+ at Dell, get $50 statement credit
+ you must click on the button next to the offer to activate it for your account _before_ making a purchase. If you have multiple AMEX cards in the same AMEX online account, make sure you are looking/using the correct card
