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

how to get both regular rebate and additional 11% rebate?
Both are diff rebates and diff receipts will print out for each. You then go to the front desk at the store and pick up the matching rebate forms. Menards rebates really are some of the easiest. So easy they tempt me into buying things I dont even want, lol.

Any idea if the Spic & Span wet wipes are the same rebate as a few weeks ago? I did my limit 10 at that time. Would I be able to buy them again this week?
You will be able to buy them again this time, it is a NEW rebate.

Quote from fei2010 View Post :
how to get both regular rebate and additional 11% rebate?
When the receipt prints out, on the bottom of the receipt a "rebate receipt" for each of the qualify rebates will print out and another rebate will print out for 11% of your total purchase.

So for example, if you buy:
6 Spic & Span = $1.50 x 6 = $9.00
4 Super Hook 20pc = $3.00 x 4 = $12.00
10 Cerama-Lock Floor Lock Trays 12pk = $25.00 x 10 = $250.00
4 4-Packs of Sprecher root Beer = $2.97 x 4 = $11.88

Total would be $282.88 + tax

The normal receipt would print out as normal. Then a rebate receipt would print out for 11% of $282.88 = $31.12 (note this has a different mailing address than most Menard rebates)

Then you would receive three more rebate receipts, one for each of the Spic & Span, Super Hooks, and Cerama Lock Floor (Sprechers is just a sale item and non-rebate). So you'd receive your initial receipt, and then connected to it would be the four other rebate receipts.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I still have not seen the full ad, but was looking for a copy online and came across "Sarah's Deals" website/blog and she had a few other things typed up.

I'll format things later and I'm aware there is some repeats, but its dinner time and that's more important right now Wink

My Shopping List
2 - LED Auto Night Lights 2pk, $3 each x 2 = $6 , get $6 back
4 - Super Hook 20pc, $3 each x 4 = $12, get $12 back
6 - Spic & Span Wet Wipes, $1.50 each x 6 = $9. get $9 back
4 - Extension Cord Combo Pack, $6.99 each x 4 = $28.96, get $20 back
= $55.96, get back $47 + $6.16 (11% back) = $53.16 or a net loss of $2.80

Maybe
Post Frame Building Book $3
Orbit Rubber Grip NozzlesGlad Food Storage Set 24pc
Double Ladder Ball Game
Want to point out two deals that I think are really good...

The Ladder Ball Game set is on sale for $16.99 with a $10 rebate, so $6.99 after rebate and if you buy on Sunday you get another $1.86 from the 11% rebate so its $5.13 for them. Google product search, next best price is $33!

Other good deal in my mind is the extension cord combo pack for $6.99, with a $5 rebate = $1.99 or $1.22 if you buy on Sunday... the combo pack includes 3 Outlet Adapter/Nightlight, 6 Outlet Power Strip and 12' Extension Cord. The power strip is worth $3 or $4 alone... the extension cord and 3 outlet adapter is just the cherry on top.

The below the bed organizers for $5 w/ a $4 rebate (and another $0.55 on Sunday), so $0.45 each look nice as they go for about $10 each online.

The $4.99 sale price on the laptop Cooling Pad looks like a nice price too ($4.45 after rebate)...

As for me, I've got the toilet seat on my shopping list. One of ours broke. This is perfect timing.

I picked one of them up too. ~$4 after the $5 rebate & 11% rebate. Very nice price and it appears to be a solid, heavy, decently made wood seat.

Another item that was never mentioned in the list I copied over is the

8 Pack Solar Path Lights for $14.99 w/ $10 Rebate (limit 4)

If you get them today it figures out to be about $3.35 w/ the two rebates for an 8-pack.

A couple shopping notes from earlier today:
  • I got the last two LED Auto Night Lights and I was the first one in the store today
    • Make sure the package says LED on them in the title as there is one that looks almost like it without that distinction and is not part of the rebate
    • These are located in the lighting department
  • The "Super Hook 20pc" for $3.00 which is free after rebate was actually a 25pc pack... When I scanned it at the self scanner it came up $3 for 20 or 25pc pack. Rebate form printed for 25pc pack, so if you can find the bigger pack it counts towards the rebate
    • These were located in the middle aisles near other wall mounting supplies (close to candle/mirror aisle)
  • Dirt Devil Scorpion Vacuum looked to be a pretty low end model, for $8 after the two rebates, I still ended up buying two. Does not look like a normally stocked model and it was on a pallet in the back of the store area behind the last main aisle
  • Candle lighter I had a hard time finding, guess I should have looked in the obvious place next to the candles (doh), also in short supply
  • The 3-piece extension cord set was by the back to school/campus stuff and in relatively short supply as well
  • The double ladder ball game set they had about 8 available, regularly priced $19.99 (I know I paid over $20 for the one I already have)
  • Passed on the Orbit Rubber Grip Nozzles for $5.00, and FAR, definitely not an upgrade over your own hose nozzle that you would already have

It's in the Project Days Sale Ad, if you view it online it is page #27 bottom right hand corner. Otherwise, if you have a hard copy I believe it is page #3 of the smaller wrap-around (so inside back cover of the wrap-around).

In the store they were located by the laundry baskets and rubbermade type storage containers.
