Menard's Trip

There are some great deals at Menard's this week. Here is what I ended up with:

1 - 23oz tire cleaner
1 - 23oz wheel cleaner
1 - 16oz spray detailer
2 - Iams cat food
2 - Algaecide Pool Chemical (for the "new to us" hot tub)
2 - rain ponchos
6 - automotive wipes
1 - microfiber wax applicator kit
1 - 20lb bag of sunflower seeds for the birds (my $10 purchase)

The best part was the cat food, I had a $2.00 and $3.00 coupon for the two bags.

I paid $63.74 oop and will be getting back $50.98 in rebates, making my total $12.76 for everything. Jeff was thrilled to get all the car cleaner stuff, the birds will be happy for some fresh food, and Ali is happy to have rain ponchos for camp in the next couple of weeks.

Do you ever have any success with rebates?

I have got rebates from gallons of paint and stuff in the past. I did not go intentionally to buy rebate items before. They just happened to have a rebate for something I needed anyway.

The rebates do take awhile to get mailed to you, but I have always recieved them eventually.

I am trying to buy rebate items, send in for the rebates, then buy new rebate items when the rebate checks come. I have not got any rebate checks yet to see how smoothly it will work though. I will keep everyody updated when I do get my first batch of checks in.
