Menards does not issue its own coupons; instead, the hardware and home improvement store offers a variety of rebates on items purchased and accepts manufacturers and competitors' coupons. Additionally, the store typically runs weekly or biweekly sales campaigns advertised in a weekly circular.
The Menards rebate program offers either mail-in rebates or free-after-purchase rebates on qualifying items. The rebate amount is delivered to the customer in the form of in-store credit, ensuring continued sales. The hardware stores also have a policy of offering lower prices than competitors on identical items; the company authorizes stores to beat a competitor's price by 11 percent to guarantee the sale.
