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.

Feel free to edit wiki!

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!!!

Sweet! I never knew this. And I just got rebate checks in the mail last night to spend!

As long as I have shopped, or rather, rebated Menards, I did not know this. Who knew... 11% stackable. AWESOME!!! worship and repped.

Thanks for the early info and confirming the 11% back. Percentage back sale runs through 8/7. Do you know if you can mail in multiple receipts for the 11% back, or is it limit of one per address/person?

Looks like it is time to stock up on a few cases of Sprecher's with the $2.97 sale price again + rebate.

Per their current terms AND previous personal experience: You can combine MULTIPLE 11% off rebate receipts from the same promotion period (7/30 - 8/7) for all purchases made in that time, in the same envelope, with 1 single 11% off rebate form. You will receive a SINGLE rebate check for the 11% off total purchase across all sent in.

Note: Per their terms, if you attempt to price adjust any purchases made with 11% off, it will INVALIDATE all of the 11% off for the specific item you are adjusting. In other words, you purchase 2 cases of pop at regular price today for $4.99 each, and 1 box of nails on sale for $2.79.

You will get a 11% rebate against the subtotal of $12.77 ($1.40). If next Sunday that pop goes on sale for $4.49, and you take in your receipt to get 50 cents back x 2, it will invalidate $1.10 of your 11% rebate, leaving you with just $0.30 back on your 11% card, even though the price adjustment was done during the promo period and the adjust was not lower than the 11% discount.

So, if it's not on sale/clearance/rebate now, I'd honestly wait until next weekend before purchasing just in case, as you'll get the best deal then.

There are money makers to be had today (even on non-FAR)... ESPECIALLY if you are cycling through rebate cards which now reduce your tax as well. Anything that is FAR is obvious, for non-FAR, here is just 1 example:

Limit 3x Rubbermaid Glass/All-Purpose/Pine gallon cleaners. $4.99 - $4.50 rebate = $.49 - 11% of $4.99 = $0.55 more off so make 6 cents per gallon.

On Menards Guest Services page [menards.com] there is a "contact us" form for rebate questions/concerns - http://www.rebateinternational.co...contact.do

I haven't done a Menard's rebate since the nearest store is 45 minutes away. We will be in that vicinity tomorrow, is it even worth stopping in on the last day of the sale? Is there usually lots of stock or non past the first day? Thanks!

My experience with Menards is that when it comes to items that are regularly stocked, they are replenished pretty regularly. It seems most who do Menards rebates go early on the first day of the sale and are done with it. I think a person has a better chance of going on the last day of the sale and getting items then the second day of the sale.

With that said, most school items are going to be out of stock imo. Backpacks, erasers, mechanical pencils, note cards have remained in stock in the stores I've been at. Items like Wisp, Hand Sanitizer, Thermometers, hex keys, etc have been in stock for most of the sale everywhere. Water, glass cleaners, snake pipe cleaning tools, plastic storage bins, etc have all been replaced from when sale started and were available at most of my stores as of Wednesday.

Starting tomorrow I think we'll have a new ad, with new FAR and rebate items. Been refreshing the last hour waiting for it.

For anyone who has done, or will do the Lysol sale ending tomorrow, Lysol Bonus Packs 35ct + 30ct Bonus for $2.50, there's a mail in rebate of buy two get one free:

http://www.lysol.com/docs/23762_L...er_WEB.pdf

There's also a $0.50 off on two coupon - http://registration.rb.com/lysol.com/coupons/

So effectively you could purchase three double packs for $7.50 - $0.50 coupon - $0.83 (11% rebate) - $2.50 rebate = $3.67 + tax + stamp + envelope for 6 Lysol.

I'm wondering if all we are getting is the 11% off insert.

I'm going to be somewhat annoyed if that is the case. Stayed sober tonight anticipating I needed to head to the store in six hours... of course I forgot the store opens at 8:00am on Sunday instead of 6:30am as well.

At least the girlfriend is not annoyed with me tonight, compared to last night when I made myself look like an @ss enjoying all I could drink at the Milwaukee zoo.

All you're getting this week is 11% off. There is NOT another ad starting until next Saturday (Sunday), unless they start an odd mid-week one on Tues/Wed/Thur as they sometimes have. However during an 11% off sale, it's just that. You'll have to wait for the weekend for the next full ad. Then you can overlap again as the 11% will be winding down.

In one of our two stores, it was wiped clean of most valuable BackToSchool stuff today. I had to climb the rack to get down the Metric Hex Key set from overstock (and then was promptly bothered by another customer asking me if "we carried something" -- as I'm standing there in shorts and a yellow polo shirt -- not a dark blue MENARDS T-shirt and JEANS like the REAL employees!! LOL.)

I got a few other things but passed on the digital thermometer money maker as I got lots of those a few months ago and dont need more even being paid to take them.

The Brookside 15 oz candle at $14.99 will get you $1.65 on the 11% rebate, and it has a $13 rebate on it. Makes it 34 cents for a $14.99 candle. I haven't looked at them yet but sounds pretty good.

While these candles seem to be high quailty fragrance, they really don't stand up to the quality of Yankee or GoldCanyon candles... but then, for 34 cents who's to argue. If you just want them for a sense of decor, they fill the bill. But if it's great scent, probably pass. There are very few items at Mendards that I won't buy, but unfortunately, this is one of them. HTH.
