I posted many times before that my big moneysaver on printer ink was the $3 credit OfficeMax gives for every empty ink cartridge you bring back to the store with the Maxperks Recycling Program. I’ve saved so much on printer ink ( and I do print A LOT ! in the past couple years that I really started utilizing those savings.
And now they go and change it on us!
Long story short – they’ve reduced the Maxperks Recycling Program Rewards to just $2 per ink cartridge with a limit of $20 per month, per member.
I’m including the Full Details for you below, outlining all of the changes to the OfficeMax MaxPerks Rewards Recycling Program.
Not a huge change, but ya know what I say…every single dollar counts and that’s an extra $1 per cartridge that we’ve lost – BOOO !!
