    DD3 Maximizing Recycling Rewards Using MIRS

    If you recycle ink cartridges at Office Max, you probably know that you can only get back recycling reward "money" up to the amount you have already spent in the store.* I use FREE rebate items** (NOT 100% back reward items) to get my "amount spent in store" up and thereby maximize the amount I receive in recycling rewards.

    If you are an eBay seller, you can go one step further and sell the rebate items and use the funds on something you actually need.

    *You can recycle up to 20 cartridges per month, which are valued at $3 each provided you spend $3 in the store for each cartridged recycled prior to recycling rewards being issued.

    For example, if you bring in 20 cartridges throughout Month 1 and spend $50 on qualified purchases, your Month 1 Recycling rewards earned will be $60 but the rewards that will be issued to you will be $48 (which is $3 for each of 16 cartridges). The remaining $12 for the last 4 cartridges will be held in your account in a “pending” status until you make additional qualified purchases in at least $3 increments in subsequent months or until January 1 of the following year, when the account balance will be reset to $0.

    **Examples would include software that is FREE after MIR or any other item that uses a MIR. Please Note: Items that are advertised as 100% back in rewards DO NOT count toward the spending needed to obtain your recycling rewards.

    If any of this does not make sense, please ask. I will be happy to help you.
