Office Max: Mr. Sketch and Sharpie products for free after MaxPerks Rewards

OfficeMax is offering Mr. Sketch Markers and Sharpie pens for free after MaxPerks Rewards this week. If you order $50 worth of products, you’ll also get free shipping.

I’ve been rolling my MaxPerks Rewards — using rewards earned from one transaction to buy more items that are free after rebate, thus paying nothing out of pocket for lots of great items!

Shop through Ebates to get 3% back and make these deals even better.

    I want to make sure I got your wording correct.. You can roll the Max Rewards from one offer to another like CVS? Can you use Max on Max or is it only for “rebates”. Staples you can’t roll but you cn use a reward on a rebate and get the full rebate..

    • says

      You can’t roll them instantly like at CVS, you will get a rewards certificate added to your MaxPerks Rewards account every month. You can use the balance of your rewards certificate either on-line or in the store towards items that will also give you MaxPerks Rewards. You don’t have to use the entire certificate in one purchase but you do have to use it before it expires or you lose the amount. The MaxPerks Rewards can also be applied to tax. I purchased several items that were giving me 100% back in MaxPerks with a rewards certificate and added a box of staples to put me up to $50 for free shipping. I entered the MaxPerks certificate info and paid $0.00!

        Thats awesome you can use them for more max-perks.. That is something I hate about Staples program b/c its rare they do rebates. But luckily the other month they had 2 weeks in arow with them and I was able to use all my rewards with them..

      Are you sure? I just bought the 100% back batteries at Staples with my rewards and it came across as a coupon and a minus and corporate told me using a reward would lower my rebate by that amount.

      • Mary says

        You can’t roll at Staples, only at Office Max.

        And I think ebates gave me 5%, not 3%. Almost pays the sales tax each time.

      • says

        I called customer service about this a while ago and they told me that if you use rewards to buy another 100% back in rewards item that they don’t “roll.” You SHOULD however, be able to use your rewards on a 100% back by rebate item and get your rebate in full. Is it possible that you mistook something that was a reward to be a rebate? We did that a while back – I luckily realized not long after that I didn’t get the rebate receipts that normally print… & at that time I didn’t know much about rewards & didn’t want to do them, so I returned the products to the store.

      I use it on ink all the time! Last time I waited until they had a good deal and got 5 carts for $5 after rewards!

      • Mary says

        Typical on ink is 20% back in rewards at Office Max. I’ve never seen it free after rewards and I’ve been doing the Maxperks thing for years. It’s supposed to be for business owners – when I signed up, I had to bring in a copy of my business license before they’d give me the card.

    Where it says limit three and has four options you can buy, does this mean you can buy 3 each of the four items available and receive the amount spent(before taxes) back for all 12 items? TIA!

  3. says

    How do you use your Max Perks reward? I can’t figure out how to apply them and use them. Have messed with this since seeing one of your deals with Max Perks last fall. I couldn’t ever figure it out and then my balance expired, but they reissued it for me and I’m still having trouble! I’ve been wanting to get free Sharpies when they’re offering a Max Perks deal.

    • Jessica says

      I agree! I don’t quite understand how Office Max works. I have an account (teacher/homeschool) and I recycle my used ink cartridges there ($3 credit each) but I don’t quite get how to do the good deals and then my credit expires…
