Simply present your MaxPerks ID when submitting cartridges to ensure you receive credit and your rewards will be issued along with any other MaxPerks rewards accumulated during the month.

I was at Office Max today and at the registers they had a sign up stating effective now you can get $3 for only Dell or HP ink cartridges that are not damaged. Up to 10 per week. The credit will go on your Office Max rewards card and be able to use the fund the following month!

I went to the website to find information and all I got was this, which differs from the announcment that's at each register.

My other half actually is a truck driver on an Office Max account so I checked into this new policy. What you say is correct Billig. Dell and HP only, no more Lexmark. You will get a $3 credit per cartridge up to 10 per week that goes on your OM rewards card which you do not have to have a business to sign up for. This new policy goes in effect on July 1, 2008.

June, July...I'm so simple minded that they both start with the same letter so I just remember them as the same!

SO EVERYONE WHO HAS LEXMARK INK CARTRIDGES TO RECYCLE GET THEM TURNED IN RIGHT NOW!

10 ink x 3.00= 30.00 x 4 weeks= 120.00 store credit.
That would be great if they let you use any amount of the credit on your card at once .

Yea, I noticed that the website says $1...but as long as the stores say $3...

Maybe it's a typo, or maybe it will change to $1 but the stores don't want to offend us.

so here's the deal.

you can take up to 10 carts per week for $3 per ink credit to your rewards account OR you can mail in up to 300 carts for a $300 credit per month on your rewards account.

in addition they are including free mailing supplies on their website.

with the price of gas it might not be a bad idea to just stick 300 carts in a box and wait for your credit. I wish my local staples would do some kind of mail in program.

so if you mail them, it saves them a bundle on time and paying you. thats stupid!

So it's not good for me to mail them,,,even for free, since the postoffice is the same distance as the Office Max.
But for those that don't live by an Office Max but find a deal they want to buy it would be good for them to mail them and get a credit on their account that they can use.
but I want $3, not $1.

From their terms and agreement, here is the information on the ink recycling, the difference between the $1 and $3. HTH!!

In-Store Recycling Program (Low volume recycler):

MaxPerks members may bring in up to 10 visibly undamaged HP or Dell ink/toner cartridges per week (Sun. thru Sat.) to an OfficeMax retail store and earn a $3 reward per qualified cartridge. There is a $30 maximum reward per week per member. All recycling rewards will be calculated monthly and available to you through your MaxPerks account at the beginning of the next month. Customers can sign up for MaxPerks at time of recycling drop off to participate. Recycling rewards will come in the form of a reward card and will be issued to members electronically along with any other rewards they may have earned that month. Recycling rewards can be used online, in-store or over the phone. Customers can always bring as many ink/toner cartridges of various brands to recycle, but will only receive credit for visibly undamaged HP and Dell brands and quantities noted above.

Bulk Mail-in Recycling Program (High volume recyclers):

For customers, teachers, schools, fundraisers and businesses who are high volume recyclers, we offer the Bulk Mail-in Recycling program. Members can go to the MaxPerks website, log into their account and order collection materials. All collection materials are prepaid to the customer and back to OfficeMax. Members will earn $1 in rewards for every qualified item submitted up to $300 per month in the form of a reward card. Qualified items are visibly undamaged HP or Dell ink/toner cartridges, cell phones, MP3 players, and iPods. Rewards will be issued to customers electronically monthly through your MaxPerks account along with any other rewards you may have earned that month. Simply go to our website, www.officemax.com/maxperks, and follow the simple steps to get started. Order the free collection materials from the website and use them to start collecting all ink and toner cartridges and/or cell phones. Customers may mail in ink and toner cartridges of various brands to recycle, but will only receive credit for visibly undamaged HP and Dell brands and quantities noted above. The Bulk Mail in Recycling Program is not available in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands.

I kept my receipts, but me, my wife and about 6 of our relatives all donated 10 per week on the 19th, the 26th and the 27th. Their program stated weeks are Sun - Sat.
We received credit for ONLY the 19th, the last two havn't posted to anyones account yet.

Is anyone else having problems? Are they just backlogged? It says it should show up a couple days later, it's been over a week since the ones on the 26th.

An employee at Office Max told me that the reward comes in the form of a GC and has no expiration date.

I'm still waiting on gift cards from july for me and my wife. I don't know how long it takes them to get them shipped out. Come to think of it, we are actually still waiting on our welcome packets.

Got my rewards today from ink carts I turned in for July. I called MaxPerks customer service earlier in the month and they said check online after the 15th. Checked my account today and my July statement is up, you just print the statement which has your rewards card. Expires 10-31-08.

Rewards card can be used all at once, or a little at a time. Also you can use your rewards card with Officemax coupons it says on their website so try to find a coupon to use with your rewards card for an even better deal. I'm not sure if you can save multiple rewards cards and use them all at once to purchase a large value item but I am trying to find out (so if this months card does not expire until 10-31 you could get 2 more Months of reward cards by then, for a total of $360-$420 for 3 months worth of rewards cards when you turn in 10 carts per week).

I just checked my rewards statement for july and it shows $120 total rewards issued for ink I submitted in july. we all thought a physical gift card was coming but now it looks like you need to login and check your statement.

here is what is says on the statement:
Please note, all statements and rewards will be issued online. Our online statements are a more convenient and environmentally friendly way to receive your account information and will be issued monthly. Simply log in to your secure MaxPerks account at officemax.com/maxperks to view your statements and print out the reward card for any reward you may have earned. Best of all, you can use your reward card at any OfficeMax retail store nationwide, online at officemax.com or by phone at 877.OFFICEMAX.

the upper right corner of the statement is a picture of the max perks rewards card with the number and pin. This is your rewards card. just print it out and bring a copy to the store or use the numbers online to make your purchase.

PLEASE NOTE the rewards card expires in 10 31 2008 which is well beyond the 30 days that was reported earlier. I find that most of the officemax employees I have asked do not know much about the details of the program. yes I agree save all your receipts.

In response to the reply what is the policy with Staples? I am getting my schools(3) and school board to send me all of theirs instead of trashing them. I am hoping to get enough credits to buy a new computer. I just saw Staples had a sale today and the one I need is around$600.00. Think it will work?
