Office Depot Rewards (also known as Office Depot OfficeMax Rewards) is a loyalty program that rewards you for buying office supplies like paper, ink, toner, copies, and printed products.

Along with redeeming Office Depot coupons, you can save money on all the office necessities you need through this program.

If you’re not an Office Depot Rewards member yet, we’ll show you how easy it is to join.

1. Sign Up for Office Depot Rewards

To sign up, all you have to do is create an account online or in-store, then you’re ready to receive perks like members-only offers, birthday bonus rewards, and cash-back rewards.

Joining this free program is a smart money-saving move for you because you’ll get access to rewards throughout the year.

2. Earn 10% Back in Rewards on Most Purchases.

When you buy ink, paper, toner, copies, or printed products, you’ll receive 10% back. Just remember to enter your member number at checkout so your Office Depot Rewards points will be awarded.

Additionally, you’ll receive 200 points for each ink or toner cartridge you recycle (up to 10 cartridges per month) when you make a $10 purchase in the same month at Office Depot. All ink and toner brands qualify for rewards, so bring in any you have.

To view your recycling rewards, log into your rewards account at and click on the “Rewards Summary” link on the Account Overview page.

You should note that rewards can take up five weeks to post to your account.

3. Receive A $10 Reward Certificate for Every 1,000 Points

Earning 1,000 points can be done pretty quickly—Office Depot gives you 10 points for every $1 you spend. Once you reach 1,000 points, you’ll receive a $10 reward certificate that can be used toward your next purchase.

Reward certificates are available in your online account within 30 days after reaching 1,000 points and expire after 60 days from when they were issued. So once you receive a certificate, hurry and use it before it expires!

4. Redeem Your Rewards On Any Office Depot Purchase.

Whether you’re buying paper in bulk at the store or purchasing your favorite pens online, reward certificates are redeemable on any purchase. Just give your member number at checkout and your reward will be applied.
