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.

Feel free to edit wiki!

Credit needs to go to muffieskids for starting a weekly thread six weeks or so ago. I never knew Menards did rebate deals and always ignored their ads. Absolutely hated the store when I was a kid, and my parents always joked they'd make me go with them as a punishment.



Too funny! My kids think that now. They spend alot of time trying to find things to sit on while they wait. It doesn't help that our Menards A/C doesn't work and it is horribly hot every time we go.

I had ideas that it was a mens store(think Tim the tool man), but I have done quite a few rebates in the past 10 years. When I first started going there, I would literally ask the first person I saw to take me exactly where I would find the product. Now I know my way around although many things are in crazy parts like "oh the totes, ya they are in plumbing." Confused

When I was younger, my biggest complaint is that they did not have toys except around Christmas! Probably could make some money on some of those toys, as I got a lot of the original Transformer items from the store. Between early '90s and about 2009, I don't think I was in a Menards. Was really surprised walking in and seeing some of the electronic items, grocery, etc.

Thank you so much for starting this thread! We've needed it for a long time now. You put a ton of work into the wiki and it's very much appreciated... thumbs up and repped!

Quick question; how long do we want to keep expired deals in the wiki? I'd be happy to help edit it when needed but just wanted a little feedback first.

I missed on a lot of stuff from the most recent three day sale going around 1pm on the day the sale started. Menards does a good job of having a lot of stock available initially AND they do get more stock in a lot of times during the sale, but I have been amazed watching the amount of people who are doing all the deals while I'm in the store. Many many more than I see at Walgreens/CVS around here at least.

Kind of curious with school not starting for another month + here if they will still be getting in more school supplies.



Thankful they removed that $10 minimum, would have been a pain in the butt, and a lot more costly otherwise.
I can relate! When my kids were little it was like pulling wisdom teeth to get them to into Menards. Well times have changed! My two grandaughters LOVE!!! to go - they come home with amazing treasures (or so they think! LOL!)

Here's to hoping they have the free backpacks again this year. I think I got 24 of them last year ( had to manipulate the rebates a little... sorry if that offends anyone) and filled them with school supplies and handed them off to my little neighbor girl who had just spearheaded a new program in our school district for kiddos who are displaced. Can't think of a better cause, IMHO. Was talking to Sarah several weeks ago and she said the quality of the Menards backpacks were outstanding... they apparently outlasted any of the others that had been donated. Nice to know. Anyway, hoping that one rolls around again.

Took just under two hours to get the four ads typed up. I'm assuming it will only take 30 minutes or so for each ad which is not too bad. I'm unemployed, so I've got plenty of time (law school was so worth it vomit).

Expired deals in the wiki serve no purpose. If something is expired in the wiki, please delete it. I just got rid of everything that expired 7/24. I'm assuming we'll have another ad starting this Wednesday or Friday.

We are on the same page there; I know some threads leave expired lists up for some time, but I just don't see the point. Just wanted to confirm that it was OK with you. I would assume there will be several more ads here in the near future with back to school and labor day about a month away. And it's about time for another Crazy Day sale also

Does anyone recommend the Menards Big Card?

I see it gives back 2% (assume that is post giftcard check price) but also comes with special store coupons, including a $10 store credit (WOW! A HUGE amount Wink)...

Can anyone comment on the coupons that card holders get? Are they worthwhile?

Not sure if this will help you any, but my DH has the Big Card and the coupons they send are sometimes for free items. There was a gutter scoop and I think the "green" vegetable bags or something like that. The only problem I have is that the Big Card isn't in my name and he doesn't usually want to go with me when I am getting all the freebies, so I don't usually get a chance to use the coupons. One good thing about having the card is that they send you a free gift coupon on your birthday. DH has gotten a couple of different flashlights that way.

I also wanted to mention something about when you send multiple rebates in the same envelope that have the same PO Box #. When you send alot, they will send you multiple store credit checks. I think they can send up to 5 per check, since that is all the room there is on each. Sometimes one of them comes a few days later than the first ones. Also, you don't have to spend the whole amount of each check at once. It just deducts what you spend and they write the new total on the check (so it works kinda like a GC). HTH someone.

I've never tried, but I've been told that they do. If they do, does anyone know what they will do if the mq is for more than the item?

I have used coupons at Menards many times, and I do know that they DO NOT take expired ones. I have used them on items that were free after rebate and I got the overage that way. In other words, they didn't take that coupon discount off of the amount of the rebate I received. I haven't encountered a coupon that was over the price of the item though, so I am not sure how they handle that.

I used $2 Cutter Insect Repellent printables from coupons.com a few weeks ago. Got a $1 "overage" on each can with the rebate.

If you find any coupons that match up please post them. I couldn't find any on the wisp 2-packs (all 4+ packs), but didn't look on the rest.

A little birdie told me Menards will be doing 11% off your entire purchase starting Saturday, July 30th through Sunday August 7th.

I haven't seen the ad myself, but the rebate form should appear on their site sometime tomorrow I'd expect if this is true.

For the newbies: Menards periodically runs a 11% off sale. EVERYTHING you purchase, INCLUDING otherwise rebated items, are totalled onto a SEPARATE rebate receipt that reflects 11% of there purchase price (before coupons, rebates).

This means if you go on Saturday (some ND/MN stores) or Sunday (all other stores) then you can double up on the currently ending ads, and get the FAR or otherwise rebated items STACKED with the 11% off rebate and actually making money after tax on it. Likewise, the following Sat/Sunday when the next ad starts, you can go in and buy those and stack the deals.

NOTE: The 11% off additional rebate forms GO TO A DIFFERENT PO BOX than the normal rebates. DO NOT COMBINE them with your other combined rebate submissions!!!
