Free Batteries Start ... NOW!

Office Depot has kicked off their yearly battery-thon!

Energizer AA -
Energizer AAA -

Details are the same as always:

1. Buy batteries
2. Receive 100% back as Office Depot rewards in January
3. Use rewards to pay for USPS/UPS postage, buy stamps or SHOCKER office supplies

The promo runs from November 24 - December 28. Last year batteries were slightly cheaper in-store but assuming you placed all your orders on-line here is some insane math:

34 days x 2 (item limit) x 2 (AA/AAA) = 136
136 x $17 = $2312 wh0a

Some ways to make it better:

1. Office Depot accepts coupons. Energizer sometimes has coupons.
2. Free shipping kicks in at $50 so you don't need to go every day. Buy 4, wait for delivery.
3. Use coupons from RetailMeNot:
4. Pay with Discover for 5% cashback + 5% on-line purchase cashback

I placed two orders today for in-store pick-up and used coupon code 31067892 for $10 off a $30 purchase. If I wanted delivery I would use a $10 off $50 coupon code.

Now it REALLY feels like the Black Friday season has begun!
