For those that don't know, if you have a Menards store in your area Home Depot says they will match their 11% rebate on your total purchase during the times when they run that promotion.
Over the past few months I filed rebates for $5, $60, and $15, and haven't received any of them. I did them electronically and cut-n-pasted the relevant info from my e-receipt so there is no chance of error or things getting lost in the mail. I called about the first 2 and they said they had a computer problem and needed to resubmit them. Now they say the $5 rebate card is "in the mail" ( for the past 2 weeks - yeah right ) but the other 2 are still "invalid" . Long story short it seems I'll never get the rebates.
One of them was invalidated because my purchase had a "discount" on it. They couldn't see the actual receipt but said every single item had been marked as having a discount. I had used $8 worth of store credit on a $140 purchase, but there's no reason a different form of payment should invalidate the 11% rebate. There is a chance something was on sale, but there was no indication of any discounts on the receipt and I'm pretty sure some items were not on sale. Bottom line, in either case menards would still give 11% on the full amount.
Has anyone else has good or bad luck with the home depot 11% rebate or is it just me?
