In the last couple months I've gotten this same CAP card, along with the same for my EAA membership:

And yes, yet another one for AAA:

I thought I was 'special' when I got the CAP card, but then the others came and I realized the Office Depot marketing department is  hitting up all the orgs they can find.  :clap:

This is not new. It has been in existence for awhile. If you go to the members area, they appear there. Among others you can get rebates for oil and gas - seem to remember the oil and gas is for airplanes only. Also you can get discounts at hotel chains as well in the same general section.

I can't remember the last time I set foot in any office supply store.
FWIW, this card is thicker then a member ID, so there's that.

Since I worked in Brooklyn, I took advantage of the card. I have lived in Queens ever since I started working in New York City. There has been a Staples nearby. Sometimes not as near as I would like. However the only Home Office Depot I know of is in Brooklyn. Too far for me. I would pass at least 4 Staples to reach that Office Depot. Which negates any advantage...

Aren't they all the same company now?

I can't even figure out what I'd buy at an office store that I can't get cheaper / faster elsewhere.

No, OD bought out Office Max. Staples is still OD's primary competitor.

That was my first thought as well. I miss the late 90s era membership cards...

FWIW, to others who abhor their personal information being shared to third parties.

I'm more concerned as to why, after adding a secondary address, I've now received this, and a wing banker check to my work address vs my primary home address...

IMO, this is a major problem.  Either NHQ is [un?]intentionally provided member names, addresses, and employer addresses to third parties without our consent, or someone has downloaded and sold that list.  As this seems to be a CAP sponsor of some sort, it's probably an unintentional former, but that's both disappointment and concerning if that's what happened.

I had the "Keep my information private" box checked within 5 minutes of my first login to eservices.

Alternatively, did you previously register an officemax/depot card before this using the link on the discount site?

I made the assumption that I got it because I did already register for an account.

FWIW, I'm also opted out for the public release of information.
