Menard’s Shopping 101

Most weeks Menard’s offers many items that are free after Mail In Rebate (MIR). If you want to purchase the free after MIR items, you need to buy non-rebated items totaling at least $10 (buying a $10 gift card is acceptable) or more. The items are usually located in their regular spot, but can also be found on an endcap.

They also offer even more items that have a rebate, but aren’t free, just a great deal.  You do not need to purchase an additional $10 with these rebate offers.

It’s a good idea to check the sku number on the sale sign and the shelf pricing label to make sure you have the right item. This number is a 7-digit number. Also, be sure and check what the limit is. If you choose to buy more than one item of a certain product, you’ll need to buy them all in one transaction to get the total rebate allowed. If you neglect to do that, it is possible to ask at customer service to have them return and resell your items all onto one receipt.  You will need to present them with the rebate receipts with those receipts you’re returning, to get the new and improved one.

After you make your purchase, you can grab a rebate form on your way out under the big counter. All you have to do is match the rebate number from your rebate receipt (on the bottom of your receipt.) You’ll need one for each different item you bought. If you forget to grab one, don’t dispair, (I’ve done it lots of times) you can find one here.

When you get home, fill in the rebate form, with an address label, if you’d like, and get those rebates you forgot. 🙂 You should be sure and make a copy of them either with a copier or scan it into your computer and keep track of it. Your rebate will come in the form of a postcard in about six to eight weeks. Just take it to Menard’s and use it like cash. You can use as little or as much of the rebate you want at a time. If you don’t use the whole rebate, they usually write your new total on it so you always know how much you have. If they don’t write it in, you can find the new total on your receipt.

Menard’s also accepts coupons. I actually made money on some insect repellent wipes when they were free after MIR. Wahoo!!!!

Another thing, have you ever wanted to return something and couldn’t find the receipt? Well, Menard’s offers a kiosk at the front of their store where you can look up earlier purchases, as long as they were made with a debit or credit card. But, you can always return something without a receipt, they’ll just return your money in the form of credit at the lowest sale price. I’ve returned things I had long after I purchased them, no problem.  When returning something that had a rebate on it, you’ll need to return the rebate receipts as well or they’ll take the rebate off the amount they return to you.

Leave a comment if you have any questions and I’ll be glad to answer them.
