Office Depot rewards military veterans


Office Depot is seeking to attract more veterans and their families to its stores with a new discount program.

The retailer is teaming up with Veterans Advantage to reward active duty and retired military, veterans, National Guard and Reserve, and their families with a 20% discount on office supply purchases. Veterans Advantage discounts are available every day on regularly-priced items and can be combined online with the company’s standard free delivery on qualifying purchases of $50 or more within our local delivery areas.

“We are honored to offer Veterans Advantage discounts for our active-duty military, veterans and their families,” said Tim Rea, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Office Depot, Inc., a former Army officer. “Having served in the U.S. Army for four years, I know firsthand the importance of giving back to the members of Veterans Advantage, who have served and defended our country every day.”

In addition to the exclusive 20% everyday savings, Veterans Advantage members will be eligible for a limited-time offer of 300 free business cards (a nearly $20 value). Veterans Advantage members may redeem the free business card offer at Office Depot and OfficeMax retail stores through May 31, 2015. Other exclusive savings for members will be refreshed throughout the year.

“We are delighted to partner with Office Depot and the opportunity to offer Veterans Advantage members these excellent discounts every day, including this Memorial Day,” said Scott Higgins, founder and chief executive officer of Veterans Advantage and a Vietnam War veteran. “Veterans Advantage is about recognizing the debt of gratitude we owe those who served and continue to serve our country and their families. Our partners are committed to providing real financial benefits for our members with meaningful lifestyle savings on travel, entertainment, electronics, athletic gear, financial products and healthcare purchases. Office Depot has worked to create a Veterans Advantage discount on its office products, supplies, and services for an important and tangible ‘thank you’ for service."
