Thread Details

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.

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.
I don't even include the product names from any of the rebates. I always just use "Multiple Rebates" and have never had a problem.

I don't put anything on the address line except the PO box address. I've never had a rebate submission go missing.

I already have the PO box address pre-printed on shipping labels and another set of labels pre-printed with my name/address/e-mail address so that all I have to do is stick a label on each rebate form and the address label on the envelope. Scan to pdf, seal envelope, put postage stamp, drop in mailbox.

Make sure you keep records of every rebate mailed. I combine mine and did not get one back. Had to send a scan of my receipt. Happens every now and then.

My first time doing a Menards rebate...if the rebate limit on an item is 2, can I buy 1 item on one receipt and a 2nd item on a different receipt if I submit them at the same time? The rebate wording confuses me. The store associate said would be fine, but they don't always know : ) Thanks!

Submitted in the same envelope, you'll be perfectly fine. You should also be fine submitting them seperately, but you theoretically run the risk of whoever processed the first one marking you down as maxed out.

This has proven to be risky in the past even in the same envelope - It is always best to do the multi-qty purchase on one receipt with one form.

I had a problem once, and other have reported it as well (likewise others have reported not having a problem, so YMMV) that when sending in 2 receipts fulfiling the max purchase quantity with 1 form together MAY NOT get paid correctly, but in other cases DID get paid correctly. It's just a risk.


On the other hand, you should NEVER try to send for the same rebate in two separate envelopes with one receipt in each. Their 11% off rebates specifically state this is not acceptable; their regular ones do not; but as practice, just don't try it.

So, in summary, their official rules are:
11%: One form max, multiple receipts acceptable -- all in 1 envelope

In practice the following may work, in lowering order of potential risk for non-11% (all other rebates):
- Multiple forms, multiple receipts, multiple envelopes (I'd say highly risky)
- One form, multiple receipts, one envelope (I'd say slightly risky--as proven in the past by some but not all)
- One form, one receipt, one envelope (no risk)


Of course this has nothing to do with sending multiple forms and receipts for different items in the same envelope... it's only about a single rebate spread across multiple purchases. Heck, I even combine my 11% off rebate forms+receipts along with other rebate forms + receipts in the same envelope (if to the same PO box) without any problems.

I was told that both have to be on the same receipt if limit is 2. You can have another receipt for a different set of items included with that submission but only one receipt per item, regardless of the limit. The store associate was wrong (no surprise there).

I tried to go to a newly-remodeled Menards today in the cities, and the lines to get in the parking lot were out in the street, out the frontage road, into neighboring stores lots, etc. They mailed out a flyer with a barcode on it to see what kind of discount you'd get.

I wonder if they're mostly all the same barcode/discount? laugh out loud

OMG they're doing that trick now? OUCH.

Long time ago (late 80's) after high school I worked for a catalog showroom (LaBelle's which then changed their name to Best Products (simply Best); no relation to BestBuy--that's another long story of confused customers). Anway, they did the mail a card out with scratch off discount; but the key was, you could not scratch it off until the cashier was DONE processing your order at the checkout.

I can't tell you the number of PO'd customers who only got the token 15% off instead of the promised "up to 30%" or whatever the numbers were at that time. Counter full of product, having to be shuttled back into the warehouse after they nearly threw it at me. Funny thing was, 15% off was better than my employee discount anyway. I think they did it more than once, but only the first time was a "don't scratch until purchase is complete". At least they learned a bit; but not enough to stay out of bankruptcy 2 times only to fold on the 3rd and final.

I hate these type of sales--but at least if they scan it before you start shopping, you're only wasting a trip, not the entire time there. I waste enough time at Menards wandering for stuff on 11% and 20% off sales, I wouldn't want to do it on one of these not knowing a % up front.

I remember 5 years ago when a second Menards was built in town and their opening specials were REALLY good.. like 35% off all their Gorilla rack, $10 for a $50 Keller ladder (all without rebates too!), things like that. Screaming deals, 2x better than a Black Friday offer.

We get those mystery $ off coupons from Menards occasionally- I think it's from having the Big Card. I always take it over to the price scanner because after you scan the UPC, it shows you the amount it is worth. I figure it is worth the minimum (which it always has been), but I like to know before I shop, just in case it is the larger amount.

I was upset that they would choose the one with only one on it. I returned the other 4. Now I will be keeping track of all the rebates closely. I nearly got nailed for quite a bit extra. I wonder how many times I have in the past.

That stinks. Even mailed in the same envelope? You'd think they'd open their eyes.

I can see rejecting a second envelope, because these things are processed separately. But they should have rectified this.
