Getting money back in the form of a rebate is not necessarily my favorite way to manage my finances. It’s money that I have to pull out of my pocket and as you know I don’t like doing this. I’d rather get the free item right away.
However, I’m willing to work with the rebates for several reasons. First, as I mentioned I do have more home improvement projects in the works.
Another reason I dislike the rebate forms is having to search for and fill out all those rebate forms. It’s not time well spent, but for now I’ll deal with it.
In addition since you are required to fill out the rebate forms you also need to mail it it. So for all this free stuff, I’ll actually end up spending the $.45 for a stamp to mail in the forms and have to use my own envelope.
So for all those penny pinchers, the items are free, but you will spend time, and a few pennies for postage and envelope.
Hum!!, should I subtract that from the total I listed above? That’s sort of misleading. Oh well you get the picture. I wonder if Menards will ever make this process electronic? That would be ideal.
As I mentioned during the Menards Crazy Days Sale, I’m in the middle of an office remodel and bedroom remodel. So I’ll use up the rebates from purchasing these items.
For this sale I only purchased 5 items. The rest of the stuff I really don’t need. So I didn’t see any point in getting them. There is the minimalist in me kicking in, only getting what I need or will use soon.
I have found several people re-selling these items online, I may try this out at some point, but for this trip, its just stuff I could use.
- $3.99 10 PC Nut Driver Set
- $3.99 Screw Guide Drive Set (2)
