Today I Tried (Unsuccessfully) To Buy a Vanilla Visa

I’ve posted numerous times about buying $500 Vanilla Visa gift cards at Office Depot using my Chase Ink Bold card. It’s been a great way to rack up 5X points/miles.

Alas, no longer.

Office Depot has pulled all of the variable  (ie. $20-$500) Visa gift cards. The best they have to offer, now, are $200 Visa gift cards, with a $6.95 activation fee – a far cry from the $500 gift cards with a $4.95 activation fee I was buying every couple of weeks.

I’m hoping it’s temporary or that they reappear at another office supply store, like Staples or Office Max. But I’m not optimistic. 🙁
