    Went to Menards for a few things today and figured I'd see if they had any pellets. For the first time that I recall in West Michigan, they were Somersets. There was one pallet if them out back with some damaged bags on top.

    I was able to find a half ton of good bags on that skid. For 3.50 a bag I couldn't pass them up, especially since winter doesn't seem to want to end here.

    There are still a few ton of Michigan pellets there if anyone is desperate. :)

    In Menards latest weekly flyer they were selling an item (forgot what item was:() for $4 ea., limit of 5.

    Send in rebate slip and you will receive $5 back for ea. item bought. So if you buy 5 of the items, it will cost you $20 total and they will send you back $25. Get all your money back plus $1 per item more. Money is in form of a credit merchandise check.
    So you can take that $25 and buy some Menard pellets.

    Yea I have many many tools that were free after rebates from Menards. If nothing else I would buy dog food there every month or two grab the flyer and say what shall I get free with my dog food.

    I had a rebate check I used today from their 11% off everything sale a couple months back. Ironically the rebate was from the ductwork I bought when I did my furnace install.

    Menards is my first choice for most home improvement stuff as its closest to me. Sometimes lumber is a bit sketchy unless you're looking to build a canoe, but digging through the pile will usually net you enough straight ones to finish the job.

    I'm hoping that they keep stocking Somerset or anything other than Michigans next fall.

    I was at a southern Wisconsin Menards (Johnson Creek) yesterday and found Somersets there too. They had been selling Marth Pennywise all winter.

    All 3 of the ones around me have Somersets. The Sandusky store has been known to carry Magic Sparks a time or two. But those are rebagged Pro Pellets, and an awesome pellet for $174.50 a ton. I prefer Somersets. But Pro pellet/Sparks are fine too ;)

    I don't see pellets in your truck bed, I see GOLD! You stole them at 3.50/bag. Highway robbery!!!! Did you need a posse to bring them home? You MidWest guys have the best pellets and prices and am GREEN with envy!
