Printing listing-presentation materials? Upgrading your office furniture? Before you make these or any other business-supplies purchase, here are two testimonials proving how it pays to use your Office Depot/OfficeMax TAR member discount card.



The Office Depot/OfficeMax member benefit is the best thing ever! I needed to print course materials for a CE class. The quote was almost $700, but after processing my savings, I paid just a little over $200 for the entire job! Another time, I needed to purchase a new chair for my desk. The one I selected was $389, plus I wanted a wooden floor mat to go under it, which was listed for $75. Instead of paying $464 for both, I paid $350 plus tax for both after my discount.

TAR member benefits have saved me so much money. The Office Depot/OfficeMax card alone saved me a ton on print jobs for my real estate office. I needed our policies and procedures manual printed, bound, and with a front and back cover. It would have cost more than $800 because of the size of these manuals, but with my TAR discount I paid a little over $200. That is true savings, and that is only one of many visits to OfficeMax I’ve made in the last couple of years. I save a large amount every time I walk in the doors.

I just visited OfficeMax in Rosenberg and attempted to get the TAR Member discount and the manager refused to give a discount. Said they do not give discounts to anybody (teachers, military, or realtors) of which I am two of the three. Even after I showed him this article, he still refused to give any discount and seemed very apathetic. I will not be shopping here again. The Katy OfficeMax honors military and Teacher discounts but not this one @ 24212 commercial drive Rosenberg.

@Cindy: A new card was issued after the merger, which you should get from It can be used at all Office Max and Office Depot retail locations. That link gives you the option to request a laminated copy of the card, pull up the digital discount card (perfect for showing at the register on your phone), or set up an account and shop online. If you need further assistance, please call 800-873-9155 and ask for the Member Benefits manager.

I have an Office Max card. The last 3 times I’ve been there and used it, there was no savings. I had thought that maybe since they combined (Office Depot & Office Max) that they weren’t honoring it any longer. Am I supposed to have one that says Office Depot/Office Max?

I always use the Office Max retail connect discount for everything!  It typically saves me 10% even on the smallest purchase such as ink cartridges, calendars, etc.
