Menards home improvement stores are located throughout the Midwest, with more than 250 stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Menards carries materials and tools for home improvement projects from light bulbs and paint to building a deck or a new home. Menards also carries name brand appliances, pet products, lawn and garden supplies, and groceries.

Menards regularly offers FREE and Discounted Items through the use of mail-in rebates that come in the form of STORE CREDIT. At any one time, Menards may have as many as six+ different sale advertisements, making it difficult to follow all the current good deals.

This thread is intended to keep track of all the current FAR, Rebate, and Sale items being offered at Menards - with (hopefully) regular updates to the wiki.

Questions/Answers about Menard's Sales

  • When can I expect new ads to come out (what is their flyer schedule)
    • While Menards used to be 100% predictable on their schedule they have significantly varied things up in the last year, however a few key pieces remain true:
    • 2-week (15 day) Sun-Sun "General": Most common -- starting on a Sunday and running for 2 weeks and ending the end of day on Sunday 2 weeks later, thus 15 full sale days.
    • 1-week (8 day) Sun-Sun "General": Staggered with this, they typically offer an 8 day, starting on a Sunday and running for 1 week and ending the end of day on Sunday 1 week later, thus 8 full sale days. This sale starts exactly 7 days after the 2 week one starts and ends on the same day the 2 week one ends, thus giving 2 sales overlapping.
    • This 1 week staggered/overlapped sale has occassionally been a 15 day sale depending on when they need to adjust due to holidays and other sale promotions in the future.
    • All of these sales are "general" sales, meaning products from virtually every department are offered on sale. However, they give the sale a name and therefore some departments are skewed to have more items featured. Such flyer names include "Construction", "Stock up", "Menard Days" and they reuse these every year or multiple times a year.
    • 1 1/2-week (11 day) Wed-Sun "Themed": In addition to these "normal" sales, they will often (typically once a month) overlap a 11 day sale starting on a Wedsday and running though the following Sunday. These are always department-specific sales such as "Kitchen/Bath", "Landscaping", "Storage", "Garage", "Flooring".
    • 3 day (Fri/Sat/Sun) "Crazy Day": About once every 2 months they run a 3-day weekend "Crazy Days" sale. These run on a Fri/Sat/Sun and also overlap up to 3 other sales. These sales typically offer some really good after rebate prices on things and the deals are normally larger (e.g. more expensive but with big rebates).
    • 1-week (8 day) Sun-Sun "11% Off Entire Purchase Rebate": Completely randomly handful of times a year they run a 11% off entire purchase sale. Except for 1 occassion, these have always been 8 day sales (Sun-Sun). These do NOT overlap any other sale during the week, BUT do overlap on the start and end date(s) which allow you to actually make money on rebate items as the 11% is a stackable rebate.
  • Why do some posters refer to getting sale items earlier than the official start date?
    • Because Menards is located in the upper midwest, and relies on local newspapers or even "mid week" style home town papers to distribute their ads, they sometimes run into places that don't have a paper delivery on a Sunday, or have chosen to send out their ad (perhaps for cheaper rates) in a Saturday paper.
    • Due to this, many stores will 'set' the ad late Friday night/early Saturday morning and their computer is loaded with the prices+rebates as soon as they open Saturday morning.
    • I have personally confirmed this in all 4 North Dakota Stores (Minot/Bismarck/Grand Forks/Fargo), and many Minnesota stores (Moorhead, Detroit Lakes, Hutchinson, Mankato). In fact, I've seen the ad loaded and set in Mankato on Friday evening's before
    • It often varies if the physical paper ad is set by the front doors or on the C/S counter however. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't but you will usally see the new colored signs (one color for each sale ad to aid them in setting/removal of tags at the end of a sale). Peek around by the department stations and sometimes you can spot the new but not readily available ad sitting around if you don't see it up front.

Questions/Answers about Menard's Rebates

  • Menards rebate credit checks do NOT expire
  • Where do I find the rebate forms?
    • After purchasing your items, the receipt will print separate rebate receipt copies, one specifically for each qualifying item
    • Rebate receipts are numbered, and the corresponding numbered rebate forms are available at the service desk or available online Menards website
    • A summary of all rebate numbers will appear on the bottom of your "master" receipt
    • Rebate receipts MUST be turned over when returning an item with a rebate; otherwise they will deduct the amount of the rebate from your refund with no exceptions (obviously)
  • Can you use Menard's rebates to buy other products that have Menard's rebates?
    • Yes, there is no problem with rinsing and repeating
  • How often are there Free After Rebate (FAR) items?
    • They do FAR all the time, usually anywhere from four to ten items per ad each week
  • Can rebates be combined into one envelope?
    • Most rebates can be combined into one address, provided they are being sent to the same address (Typically Box 155 in Elk Mound, WI)
    • Some rebates are sent to different address - double check
    • Make sure you have adequate postage when combining (8 rebate forms + 8 rebate receipts + standard envelope + stamp total appx .6 ounce)
  • Do I still need to spend $10 or more on other non-FAR items?
    • Mendard did away with this requirement in early 2011
  • Can you track your rebates?

Questions/Answers about Menard's Price Match/Coupon policy
  • Does Menards match prices?
    • Yes, bring in the sales ad and receive an additional 11% discount, however YMMV depending on the terms of the competetor's sale. Typically "% off" sales can be troublesome.
  • Does Menards accept coupons?
    • Yes, although internet printables are not accepted at some locations
    • They do not accept "free" product coupons

Where do I find the Items in the store?
  • Look at the first number of the SKU...Here's where you can find them:
    • 1 - Lumber/Building Materials
    • 2 - Tools/Hardware/Automotive
    • 3 - Electrical/Lighting Supplies
    • 4 - Kitchen/Appliances/Doors
    • 5 - Painting Supplies
    • 6 - Housewares/Plumbing
    • 7 - Flooring

I saw some womens Levis boot cut jeans with a shelf(clearance?) price of $8, but no mention of the rebate, and the PDF rebate form doesn't specify what skus qualify.

If I purchase a pair, it should print out the rebate receipt, correct? thanks
I would buy them. The rebate will print if they work. If not....do a return right there.

Buy them...if they don't print a rebate receipt then return on the spot. I think they will work.

Edit: My pair says Levi's boot cut Curvey cut 528 upc 039307260350..retail 42.00

Hmmmm, actually, I'm in the market for a good pizza cutter. Are you saying this one isn't it?
I got a couple of these a few months back when they were FAR and they are terrible!!! We used 1 and didn't even make it all the way across the pizza once before it broke (on a thin Jack's pizza!), the "cutter" just snapped in half. Junk!

Agree. I definitely don't recommend them for pizza, but the kids like to use them with play-doh.

That is the couch that I have the questions on, also they have a $399 bonded leather one, leather is just going to get torn to shreds if my dog climbed on it right???
I've had this couch for over a year. It's in our living room and doesn't get much use. It's very firm which I like and seems to be very sturdy. I think I paid $249 after rebate.

I don't like cleaning it either!
The one I got from Menards the last time they were on rebate comes apart for cleaning. Is that the same as this one?

I don't know. Due to the nature of what they're cutting, and that most pizza cutters are basically wheels with axles & fenders, (for lack of better words), I always run my pizza cutters under the fawcet to clean the pizza goo off right after cutting.

The Quaker State full synthetic oil has been working well for me from years past. $3 a quart after rebate is a decent price for synth.

Also, cheapo Peak wiper blades FAR.

Perhaps others have had better experiences, but in mine, those wiper blades...absolute junk. Menards would have to pay me to take them again. Got a pair when they were near-free last summer and they basically fell apart two weeks after I put them on. I think they saw an hour or so of actual wiping and they were shot.

Just a heads up, since us Menards devotees all live in climates where driving with ineffective wipers can be freakin' scary.

100% Agree. AVOID *ANYTHING* sold under the name "PEAK" at Menards.

The wiper blades are horrible. Got them during the B1G1 promo last summer. Wife complained on first use of them, they skip, are very noisy and leave lots on the window. And this was before winter started here. Now, they pretty much just 'brush' the snow off.

Other auto-related PEAK products Menards sells really cheap, such as the garage parking sensors, car defrosters, etc... all have horrendous 1 star ratings over at Amazon for the identical model numbers. (Amazon reviews are your friend Smilie )

Yet another example of Meanrds switching to ever lower and lower quality products. Just a few years ago they and Anco (sp?) and one other more popular brand of blades. A continuation of this practice (e.g. dumping Scotch/3M sanding stuff for their china-made self-labeled Performaxx/Masterforce; switching from B+D to Stanley and Zircon for stud sensors, GE to China-made Verilux black light FL tubes, drilled shelf uprights with real plastic melamine coating to just white glossy paper covered particle board) and many other examples.

Simply avoid these low quality brands at Menards; unless 100% FAR, and questionable sometimes for that too. Frown

It's my first time doing this. Question about mailing Menards rebate - I'm stuffing multiple rebates in one envelope. What should my top address line be ? The different rebate forms have the name of the product as the top address line. Can I just address it to one product even though there are other product rebates ? The PO Box and other things are the same.

You can use the top line from any of the rebates you're mailing, so long as, as you note, the PO Box etc. is the same throughout. Which I always double check, even though every rebate I've ever done went to the same PO Box in Elk Mound, WI.

I don't think it matters. The post office just looks at the zip code and the p.o. box number and delivers it.

That being said, I usually just take 1 word from each rebate item that I am submitting for. So for example this week I will address it to: Paint Brush, Pencil, Pizza, Nasal

I never have any problem with the Menards rebates and I've been doing it this way for years.
