Types of DealsStay Alert
Office Depot offers two ways to receive notifications about upcoming sales, deals and discount. You can sign up to receive alerts as either emails or text messages. Messaging and data rates may apply to the mobile opt-in, and Office Depot typically sends no more than five text alerts per month.
Use Free Shipping
Certain merchandise ordered by 5 p.m. will receive free next day shipping within qualified zip codes. A minimum purchase of $50 is required, and that total is calculated after discounts and before taxes. There are many exclusions, such as heavy items and special orders. You can also get free shipping on most items if you choose to ship to a nearby store location. If the item you want is in stock at your local store, you can receive free one hour store pickup as well.

Office Depot offers both a personal and business credit cards for even more deals. With the personal card, you receive special offers throughout the year and deferred interest plans are available. For the business card, there is no annual fee and you can save 10% off your first purchase up to $500.
Use Coupon Codes
By searching for coupon codes before completing your purchase, you can add up the savings. Most codes are generous, offering 15% to 50% off items or free gift with a minimum purchase. You can also typically find free shipping codes as well as dollar off minimum purchase amounts, such as $30 off $150 or more. Office Depot has also put together a coupon offer page, but they can only be used online. The best part is that most dollar off coupon codes can be combined with free gift offers for a great value.

Office Depot offers a price match guarantee on most purchases. If you see a lower price on any item, they will instantly offer you that price. If any item you have purchased in the past 14 days is reduced, they will refund you the difference. However, they only take the point-of-sale price and will not match any mail-in rebates of competitors. There are also exclusions to the price matching, such as service warranties, refurbished items, and all Cyber Monday and Black Friday purchases.
