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.
The current promotion is over for 2020, but it is expected to return in early 2021.
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 Weber, John Deere, gift cards, and over 1,100 pages of products from the 11% rebate.
If you are considering a large purchase, I suggest you (1) visit HomeDepot.com, (2) search 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
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.
