Duracell 1c After Rewards return to Office Depot-Max

If you like Duracell AA or AAA single-use batteries, and shop at Office Depot/Max enough to spend the future rewards, their Duracell 1-Cent After Rewards (no rewards on the sales-tax amount) are back at the Office Depot/Max Rewards. The terms are as before, maximum two 16-packs per customer during the week of Sunday 10/22/17 until Saturday 10/28/17 night. This is good online or at their B&M stores. A rewards account is required for all the Rewards promotions.

Sears Cashback Bonanza for October 2017 (up to $50 in Rewards)

For the whole month of October 2017, if you are a member of the Sears SYW (Shop Your Way) Rewards program, or you don’t object to signing up for it, you can earn cashback up to $50 in Cashback Rewards per purchase. The percentages vary by product category. More details at the Cashback Bonanza promotional page.

The Cashback Rewards can be used in future purchases, following the terms, conditions and expiration rules of their rewards program.

Speaking of Sears, you can buy $200 Sears e-Gift Card with a 15% off discount, paying $170 for it. This is sold by PayPal, so you don’t have to worry about getting cheated on plastic gift cards and then having a big kerfuffle to sort it out.

Duracell Battery AA/AAA Rewards are back at Office Depot/Max

If you are a fan of Duracell Single Use AA or AAA batteries, and also a fan of shopping at Office Depot / Office Max, their weekly rewards promotions running 10/1/17 until the close of business on Saturday 10/7/17 include the return of the Duracell Coppertop battery rewards.

As before, using your rewards card during the in-store (show it to cashier or give them your phone number) or online purchase (make sure it’s in your account profile), you pay full price + sales tax in the store. A few weeks later, the full price of the batteries minus $0.01 will appear as an Office Depot Rewards in your OD/OMX rewards account. The sales tax is not included in the reward, that’s out of pocket.

As before, it’s limit two total per customer, any combination of eligible 16-packs of AA or AAA Duracell Coppertops.

Only these two specific packages of Duracell are eligible!

YMMV: 8% back in eBay Bucks on $50+ items

If I ever use the term “Fall into Savings” please feel free to e-yell at me in the comments! Because every other email I open today says “Fall into Savings” 🙂 Might as well fall into a pumpkin spice latte while eating a pumpkin kringle and wearing harvest-orange head-to-toe 😉

Which brings us to another eBay Bonus Bucks promotion 🙂

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

YMMV eBay Bucks: 6% to 10% depending on purchase price

It looks like we may have a pattern here. The ebay coupon expired last night, and lo and behold, a new eBay Bucks promotion is running today. So they may be alternating? I’ll pay attention to see if this is an on-going pattern…

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Friday 3am eastern (6/23/17), you earn eBay Bucks on your purchases depending on the item purchase price. Items over $50 get 10% eBay Bucks, items between $25 to $50 get 8%, and items under $25 get 6%.

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

One great way to take advantage of this promotion is the new condition factory unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Midnight Black) offered for $700 with free shipping by Samsung’s official eBay store. No contract, no obligation to any carrier, and you can use it on all four major US carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon) and their assorted sub-carriers (MetroPCS, Cricket, etc) and MVNOs (Page, Republic, TPO, etc). 10% of $700 = $70 in eBay Bucks to be spent in future eBay purchases!

Valid in-store, online, by phone or fax. These rewards will be issued separately from the monthly rewards, which is good, because they are not subject to the sneaky $10 multiple restriction.

Duracell Batteries Rewards are back at Office Depot (Sun to Sat)

The Duracell Batteries Penny (+ Sales Tax) After Rewards promotion is back at Office Depot and Office Max stores. You can find the offer online at their Rewards page and in-store in their Weekly circular ad. The terms are as before, you can buy one or two 16-packs of Duracell single-use AA or AAA Coopertop batteries, and get back the purchase price (minus one penny) in Rewards a few weeks later. The Sales Tax amount is NOT included in the Rewards amount. Rewards do not roll over, so don’t pay with rewards if you expect to get rewards on the offer. These Rewards will arrive separately from their monthly rewards (a good thing because regular monthly rewards are only issued in $10 increments). Offer runs Sunday 5/21 until the close of business on Saturday 5/27/17.

YMMV 8% eBay Bucks on $50+ items (ends Sun PM)

This is YMMV ~ I do not know if eBay offers this to everyone or a subset of their registered users. Good until Sunday night (5/7/17 at 11:59pm pacific), you earn 8% on $50+ items purchased during this promotional period. Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

eBay could do a better job describing these promotions in the emails since they do not clearly outline the difference between a “$50+ item” and a “$50+ purchase”. The former is clear that it has to be reached with a single item. The latter is confusing since eBay now has a proper shopping cart and you can reach $50+ with 100 $0.50 widgets. I’m assuming this promotion is for the former (individual items priced $50+ individually).

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

CORRECTION: 6% to 10% eBay Bucks until Fri 3am ET (YMMV)

CORRECTION: The original post was incorrect. You get 10% eBay Bucks with individual items priced over $50, you get 8% for items between $25 and $50, an 6% for items under $25. While speed reading I missed the “up to” in the eBay email headline 🙁

This is back, and as before, it is YMMV and ends at 3am eastern on Friday (11:59pm pacific on Thursday). If you received an email/message from eBay about this offer, you can participate by activating it (click on the appropriate place in the email/message). You get up to 10% eBay Bucks on individual items. This particular offer does not have a minimum purchase amount. You get 10% on all eligible items!

Unrelated to this promotion, and NOT eligible to earn Extra Bucks, the PayPal Digital Gifts eBay store is offering $50 iTunes email gift cards for $42.50. This is a 15% off discount. Limit up to four per customer.

Duracell Batteries Rewards are back at Office Depot (Sun to Sat)

The Duracell Batteries Penny (+ Sales Tax) After Rewards promotion is back at Office Depot and Office Max stores. You can find the offer online at their Rewards page and in-store in their Weekly circular ad. The terms are as before, you can buy one or two 16-packs of Duracell single-use AA or AAA batteries, and get back the purchase price (minus one penny) in Rewards a few weeks later.

Offer runs Sunday 2/19 until the close of business on Saturday 2/25/17.

Plan Ahead (February 5-11): Duracell Batteries Rewards offer returns at ODP/OMX

Batteries are included (if buy them that is). If you are a fan of the Duracell Battery Rewards promotions at Office Depot (ODP) and Office Max (OMX) stores, they are returning for the week of Sunday February 5 until the close of business on Saturday 11 in 2017. The terms are the same as before, you can buy up to two 16-packs of AA or AAA, pay full price, and a few weeks later (five weeks or less), you receive the purchase price (minus a penny) as a reward in your ODP/OMX rewards account. The sales tax is not included in the reward. Per the weekly ad on their website, these rewards will be issued separately from the monthly rewards (this means you get the full amount, and not multiples of $10). You cannot pay for the batteries with rewards and get rerwads again (you can’t roll rewards like you could wtih the old Office Max rewards program).

The offer is good for online purchases as well. When the offer activates on Sunday 2/5/17, they will appear on the Rewards page.

Strategically you can combine the purchase of the above with their ink recycling rewards. You get $2 back per ink/cartridge (regardless of size, from the tiny single colors to the elephant size toners), but they only pay regular rewards in multiples of $10 per month, and you need to make a purchase of $10+ (with new money; not rewards) during that particular month. The 16-packs are $14 each, so even one of them gets you over the $10+ prerequisite. You can recycle up to ten cartridges per month and get rewards for them. You can recycle more, but you won’t get rewards for cartridges #11+ for that particular month. Strategically, you recycle the biggest/heaviest and leakiest first, and save the rest for the next calendar month 🙂
