Price Adjustment

April 16th, 2013 at 05:22 pm

I went to Menard's today to have our storm door price adjusted. We purchased the door for $299 plus tax. At the time there was an 11% rebate promotion going on, so I did send that in. The day after we purchased the door, it was on sale for $269. Whoa. A 10% mark down.

Menard's is a home improvement store if you aren't familiar with the name. They are interesting in that any rebates they offer come back to you in the form of a merchandise credit check. This can only be used in their stores.

Right now we have about $40 worth of rebates being processed, plus today I had the door price adjusted which resulted in another credit at the store in the amount of about $32!

I'm sure we will be buying more things there as summer arrives, so not a big deal that the money is a credit, but sometimes I really wish they would just give cash back!!

Do you like cash back as store credit or cash? Are you aware of Menard's? Do you like the store, or prefer others?

    I really don't like Menard's. We've had endless troubles with their rebates, they seem to run out of specials or use bait and switch tactics. But I don't like Home Depot either! Usually we go to a local store because every time Menard's has a special my husband reminds me that I always swear to never go there again.

    @MEC, I'm not a huge fan either. Unfortunately it is the closest Big Box home improvement store near our house, so it does end up being our first stop. So far I haven't had any rebate issues...except I don't like them in a store credit. I'd rather have cash.

    I prefer cash back over store credit without a doubt, unless it is at a store that I shop at regularly (and even then, I'd really prefer the cash!)

    When my family lived in MN we had a running joke surrounding the name "Menards." Male anatomy. Smile I'm not sure if I've ever even been in the store though ...
