Delta Gift Cards Popped Up At My Office Depot

I’ve been known to buy a gift card or two in my day.  It’s probably just a rumor that all the employees at my local Office Depot know me by name.  And they definitely haven’t memorized my loyalty card number just  yet.

I make it a habit to scan the gift card racks for new arrivals.  It’s part of my strategy to maximize mileage earning.  In this case, I’m generally using my Chase Ink credit cards to earn 5X points at office supply stores.  I use these cards pretty heavily for regular business expenses as well, but 5X at office supply stores is one of my favorite deals.

I was surprised to see a new travel related gift card at my local Office Depot this week.

Delta Gift Card Office Depot

There used to be more Verizon cards and another row of Game Stop cards.  Instead, there are now $50 and $100 denomination Delta Air Lines gift cards.  I don’t make it a habit of flying Delta but I’ve definitely bought my fair share of Southwest gift cards from Office Depot and Staples.  I do end up flying some of my employees on Delta occasionally, so I’m happy to have a 5X option for those expenses in the future.

This is the first time I’m seeing Delta gift cards at an office supply store.

Have you seen Delta gift cards at your local office supply store before?

      1. Kroger sometimes has Hyatt cards, too, but those should be approached carefully these days. And the donuts aren’t anything special, either.

        1. John, have you gotten hacked Hyatt cards direct from a retailer? I know there are a bunch that have been hacked lately from secondary sources but I haven’t personally run into any that have been hacked. I’d have to be pretty desperate for Kroger donuts.

          1. Hi Ed. I didn’t have any trouble with cards I got from Hyatt a couple of years ago through Milepoint/ Inside Flyer. I only bought a couple of cards from Kroger, maybe a year ago, and used them right away, so no problems there, either. I believe I’ve read of other people having issues with cards directly from Hyatt since then, though, along with cards through other sources. I don’t know how much hacking is still going on, but it seems that Hyatt has been good about dealing with problems if they are notified. And there might have been some Delta cards, along with Hyatt, at Lowes a few days ago, but I was there for something else and wasn’t paying too much attention. I’ll look harder next time I’m in there.

    1. I don’t think there’s a limit, but you can only use 3 forms of payment. So up to 3 gift cards, or 2 gift cards and your credit cards, etc.

  1. No Delta gift cards at the closest Office Depot, but that store’s gift card selection has never been great. Lowes does indeed have Delta, Hyatt, Southwest, and a bunch of others. Very limited donut selection at both places, though.

    1. John, no donuts at Office Depot???? I do think the Delta thing is new for Office Depot. I hit up a handful of Office Depots around the country and haven’t seen them anywhere yet other than this one.
