    Default What counts for credit card "office supplies" category?

    What stores do you get 5% from Chase Ink Cash in their office supplies category? I just bought a computer from Apple online. Does that get me 5%?

    Do they give you 5% from Office Depot, Staples? Confused.

    office depot and staples would obviously count as office supplies on your credit card.

    but if you bought something online that might not count. why would you want to pay shipping and handling and you have to wait for the merchandise to be delivered. what would you do if the product is damaged a little and the delivery truck left? you have to waste more time sending the product back
    and wait again for it be delivered, plus you have to call them to let them know.

    Doesn't it make more sense to go to the store?

    As stated above, mainly it's office supply stores that count for that category. Buying office supplies at a store like Walmart or Target unfortunately will not count.
