The rebates at Menard's is nothing but a scam. Only sheep that wish to jump through hoops will support the scam.
If you by chance would receive your rebate after two months , you can only redeem it at Menard's for another product. They get to advertise the products as being on sale for a lower price but they charge you full price including the tax on the full price at the cash register. You end up paying the state a tax on the full amount and don't get that back. I am a contractor and buy lots products.
I have been scammed so many times I no longer buy anything with a rebate, i will go to Home Depot for them.
We need to get laws passed to prevent the scam. They should give a rebate immediately at the checkout. Menard's can bill the manufacturer for the rebate or they should have to give the rebate at the service desk after checkout.
All advertisements should have to be at the regular price. It;s not fare to other business when they are able to advertise something at a lower price when only a small percentage of customers actually get the rebate.
