Okay, so I usually go into the big box stores like Home Depot and Lowe's as they have always had a good selection and their return policy is great. Never an issue and if there is something that looks like an issue, its fixed quickly
Menards ran a special, buy something from us and you get 11% rebate on your entire purchase. Good deal since most of what I purchased was wood and parts for a greenhouse that I built. Did the routine, filled out the paperwork and mailed in the rebate forms, everything in line with their terms, no problem right. No. Half the rebate arrives. Months later after trying to jump through hoops with a company callled Rebates International, I still don't have my rebate. Here's the scam.
Menards took my purchase and then honored half the rebate. Kicked back the other half to the rebate company saying, no, the items were returned. No true. Rebate company puts you through hoops to prove it and then falls back on Menards saying it was returned (which it was not). This should qualify for a RICO charge against both companies as they collude to avoid paying rebates. I wonder if the Rebate company gets a kickback on the savings?? Inquring minds want to know...
So I wrote a professional letter to Menards corporate, giving copies of reciepts and all. And this "Operations Legal Manager" by the name of James L. McMenomy writes this two page letter telling me how I am wrong and setting me stratight. OMG.
I called and left a message with a legal department with a girl by the name of Pat. No call back. Today I called long-distance again and he still didn't call back. This is absolutely amazing that they think they are going to get away with this.
First, I am going to review the heck out of this transaction, online and off. It will be permenant availalble for the world to read and as a warning to all, don't shop at Menards... And keep track of your rebates - which brings up a question, I wonder how many other people Menards has done this to, and what about this joker of a business named Rebates International?? I wonder if this company is a shell company created by unscrupulous retailers like Menards is being, just to save money. There must be huge profits with this scam.
They will never see my money again, and I have very disposable income.
Fools. Next stop, AG then DOJ, then every imaginable review site online. Great job Menards and James L. McMenomy and Rebates International. I hope it was worth the scam. Returned the products - lol, I have a completed greenhouse as proof as well as bank statements, what do they have. They don't both to try to resolve it. I will post redacted letters shortly and emails shortly.
