My husband does rebates at Menards all the time. I think we are still spending the same $20 we used last year. Ok, I’m over exaggerating, but he brings the rebates home all the time. If you don’t have a Menards in your area, it is like Lowes or Home Depot. They offer rebates in the form of store credit. You get the forms at the store service counter and fill them out with a portion of your receipt.
Rite Aid offers rebates too. One thing that is different is that you can only submit one rebate per month, so you have to hold on to all the receipts until you are sure you are done shopping for rebates. You will need to have a Rite Aid Wellness card. You can submit the rebates online or mail them in. Rebates come in the form of a check in about 2 weeks.
Office Max has a simple way to get rebates. You need to have their MaxPerks card and have it scanned (or your phone number looked up) and the rebate comes a few months later, in the form of store credit. They have a lot of great savings right before school, to get rebates on paper, pens, backpacks (they have .01 backpacks with rebates right before school).
Staples has easy rebates that come as checks you can cash. You will need to have their Staples Rewards card to take advantage of these rebates. During back to school time, they have lots of great deals to take advantage of.
On top of that, if you use Ebates, you can shop online with stores and earn a percentage back on a purchase you were already going to do. It doesn’t cost anything to sign up.
The most important thing you need to do with the rebates, is submit the rebates the same day you get them (except for Rite Aid, store those in a visible place). There is less likely chance you will forget mailing them out and get the rebates you counted on. You’ll be well on your way to savings.
Where do you like to rebate?
