Menards advertise 11% percent off all purchases with a mail in rebate. First it isn't 11% off since you must purchase it at full price and pay sales tax on that price.
For example, you buy something priced $100 so you pay $106 with tax. You mail in a rebate, because you can't do it online, costing you an envelope and stamp, and get $11 off. Therefore paying $95 dollars (minus postage costs). If the rebate was instant you would have paid $89 plus $5.34 sales tax or $94.34 so you pay $0.66 more because of the mail in rebate (plus postage).
Second, if you purchase and item online to pickup in the store they won't give you a receipt to mail in.
When I asked for one I was told to get one online, when I explained that I didn't have a printer to print one out I was told to go to a library to get one printed. You need a paper receipt to get the rebate and the store would not provide one.
