Saved Big Money at Menards…Again

April 19, 2010

Went to Menards on 4/14/10  to get my weekly freebies.  I received 2 Plastic Mud Pans, 2 Packs of three Terry Cloth Towels (only 1 shown in photo – already using the other set), 2 Packs of Forever Green Bags, 2 Mini Blinds, and 4 Tubes of Blacktop Crack Filler.  Total came to $34.82 including tax – used a previous Menards rebate to pay.  Total out of pocket cash = $0.  I will be getting back $33.00 on another rebate certificate in approximately 3 weeks.  I have noticed the turn around time for the rebate certificate to arrive in the mail to be about 3 weeks and 2 days.  I usually put several weeks worth of rebates in one envelope to save on postage.  The rebates usually all go to the same P.O. Box address.  Once in a while they do go to a seperate address, but it is very rare.   The certificates never expire, and eventually you will notice you are getting certificates in the mail almost every week, once you have been doing this a while.  If you plan it well, you will always use certificates to buy that week’s free items, and never have to pay any cash out of pocket!


Free shopping at Menards yesterday

April 7, 2010

Went to Menards yesterday to get my weekly free stuff. The free items I ended up with were 1 Roofing Square, 1 Oil Pan, 5 tubes of Seam Sealer, 1 Gutter Scoop, 2 jugs of House Wash, 2 Tape Measures, and 4 Packs of Ray-O-Vac Batteries. I also bought a Swivel Sweeper, a large Entry Mat, and a bottle of Vegetation Killer. My total with tax was $75.72 but I had 3 rebates from previous weeks which I used to pay. Total out of pocket spent $0. I still have $14.78 left over on one of the rebates, and I will be getting back $44.00 in additional rebates in approximately three weeks. I am waiting on a few more rebates that should be arriving any day now. Hopefully they will be here in time for next weeks shopping trip.
