Office Max Complaint - MaxPerks may be a scam
LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA -- In my experience, the means of accessing one's "profile" or "account" or "rewards" for MaxPerks for Teachers are counter-intuitive. They are in fact so convoluted that I suspect something similar to the what others have cited as OfficeMax rebate scams. The strategy seems to be to lure one into purchases with the promise of rewards and gift cards, but then make the means to access these rewards and gift cards so difficult that the customer is likely to give up in despair. There are some genuine good deals to be had in simple purchases at OfficeMax. Continue to seek those if you will. But I'd advise you avoid MaxPerks. Why an otherwise reputable company would stoop to the equivalent of street muggery, I cannot imagine. My deep suspicion is that they have preferred "the bottom line" in this matter, and have let honest dealing go by the board.
