If you care to consider, Monroe has a rebate offer for their brakes, search for brakes for your car on Amazon. I got regular brake pads for 40 with a 20 dollar rebate. I've only had the back put on, but they seem to be doing well so far...

I have pads and rotors on my car from R1 Concepts. They are great. About to do the same on my truck because the current rotors are warped and I hate the pulse in the pedal.

I don't think any retailer will refund used brake parts, even if you only fitted them and never touched the brake pedal.
