Home Depot regularly runs an 11% rebate promotion for in-store purchases to compete with Menards’ 11% rebate deal.
This promotion can save you a ton of money on your home and lawn projects.
You can find the dates of the current promotion on the Home Depot website.
This post will cover what states are eligible, how to submit your claim, and other fine print you should know about.
States Where the 11% Rebate is Valid
Home Depot only runs the 11% rebate promotion in cities and states where Menards stores are located. These states are:
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
You should double-check that your local store is participating because not all stores in a state participate.
If your city has a Menards store, it is very likely that your Home Depot store is participating.
For example, the rebate is not valid in the Lexington, Kentucky stores, but it is valid in the Louisville, Kentucky stores because there are no Menards stores in Lexington.
Home Depot excludes from the 11% rebate several name brands and other items, including Weber, John Deere, gift cards, and over 1,300 pages of products.
The rebate also only applies to in-store purchases. Online purchases do not qualify.
If you are considering a large purchase, I suggest you (1) visit HomeDepot.com, (2) search for your product, (3) find the Store SKU #, and (4) use Ctrl + F and then the number to see if it is included in the excluded products.
Submitting Your Claim
You can mail in your rebate or easily submit it online.
Submitting it online is the best option to avoid any lost mail or delays.
Just enter in your purchase date and click continue.
You will then be asked for your receipt number, your purchase date, and your total receipt amount paid.
In the final screen, you will enter your mailing address and email address. Home Depot will then send you a gift card for 11% of your purchase in 3-6 weeks.
