Menards is a great store for anyone who manages a household. While it has a lot of hardware, building materials, flooring and other home project necessities, don’t overlook the fact that Menards carries many items that can be used by anyone. Think picture frames, dog food, candles, brooms, laundry detergent, flower pots, groceries, shampoo and the list goes on.
Menards rebates are paid in the form of a merchandise credit check. Basically, it is a check for store merchandise and it works like a store gift card. You can use all or a portion of it on a purchase and best of all you can use it to purchase additional items with Menards rebates.
How to Find Products with Menards Rebates
Products with Menards rebates are typically advertised in the Menards weekly flyer. Peruse the ad that comes in the Sunday paper or browses the Menards ads online. Items with rebates, including those that are free are clearly marked in the ad.
Identify the products that are of interest to you and make note of the pricing details in the ad. Note the price after rebate, the value of the rebate and the price you will pay for the
product. For example, if a household cleaner is advertised at 99 cents after $2 rebate, you will pay $2.99 each.
Also, note the limit per household that is marked in the ad to make sure you don’t purchase more than the rebate allows. Finally, notice that if an item is advertised “free after rebate,” Menards will require a minimum $10 purchase of non-rebated items in order to qualify for the free after rebate product.
Shopping for Products with Menards Rebates
With your list in hand head to the store and pick up the items and quantities you selected. You can only submit one rebate receipt per rebate so make sure you buy as many as you need or want (within rebate limits) in one purchase. Have some free after rebate products, but don’t need to buy anything at Menards this week? Pick up a $10 gift card. You can always use it for a future purchase and you’ve purchased $10 in non-rebated items to qualify for the free after rebate purchase.
After paying for your purchase, make sure you receive your receipt. The Menards rebate receipts you need to submit your rebates will be printed at the bottom of the receipt. Also, make sure you collect your rebate forms.
Each rebate receipt has a corresponding rebate number. Menards rebate forms are located near the store exit, by customer service. They’re in numerical order, making it easy to locate the rebates for the products you purchased.
Submitting Menards Rebates
Now comes the easy part. Read the entire rebate form to ensure you have complied with all requirements. Fill in your name and address on the Menards rebate forms or use address labels, which Menards allows and maybe prefers to ensure an easy-to-read rebate form. Cut the rebate receipts from your register receipt. Address and stamp an envelope. Yes, just one envelope because Menards rebates all go to the same address. Copy your rebates and receipts for your records and mail them in. If you purchase a product at Menards that has a manufacturer’s rebate, you will need to submit it separately.

Redeeming Menards Merchandise Credit Checks
Remember Menards rebates are paid as merchandise credit checks and you will likely get one check with the combined total of several rebates. Select the new items you would like to purchase (new rebated items included) and proceed to the checkout.
After the cashier rings up your purchase, hand over the merchandise credit check. After it is entered if you have rebate “money” remaining the cashier will return it to you with a new total value written on it. If you use it all and then some, the cashier will ask for the remaining balance.
It’s that easy to purchase household items, holiday decorations, and more for less and possibly free at Menards.
