I bought carpet and pad from Menards and used my Menards Charge Card. I got a rebate and filled it out and sent it in.
I received the rebate in the mail which states "in store only" and also states "you cannot apply the rebate to your Menards card". If Menards is going to advertise rebates, they should state up front "in store rebate only". A rebate is a check to spend however you want - not only at Menards. I wanted to put the money back on my Menards card for the carpet purchase.
Menards won't let you do this either. Once Menards gets your money, they won't give it back. I have never heard of an "in store only" rebate. A rebate is supposed to be used however a consumer wants.
Menards should state up front (not on the rebate check only) that you cannot use it to pay for the purchase made on THEIR charge card. This is utterly ridiculous!
