Military discounts are available for both Home Depot and Lowe’s, however there are a few stipulations to their policies. Gift Card Granny researched these programs and the necessary qualifications to receive the savings. The details have been verified with a Lowe’s and Home Depot customer service representative.
To further explain the policy, military personnel who are currently serving can receive the discount. Additionally, veterans who have retired after 20 years of service or receive VA benefits may obtain the discount. If you do not fall under either of those descriptions, Lowe’s offers all veterans a 10% discount on three holidays which include Memorial Day, 4th of July and Veterans Day. Immediate family members including spouses and children up to 18 years old can also get the 10% off savings.
The military discount cannot be combined with the Lowe’s 5% off every day credit card promotion or price matching. You are unable to purchase Lowe’s gift cards and services with the discount. Additionally, buying items for a business is prohibited. The full details can be found on Lowe's website.
Similar to Lowe’s, Home Depot has specific restrictions for their military offered discount. Active military and veterans (more than 20 years of service or a service-connected disabled veteran) can get 10% off their purchase. If you do not qualify for either of those options, other military veterans can receive a 10% discount on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Independence Day.
The Home Depot military discount does not apply to lumber and building materials. Other general restrictions, including maximum discount amount, depend on the store manager.
Granny Tip: Note that you are unable to use coupons in conjunction with your military discount. However, you can use your military discount and a Lowe's or Home Depot discount gift card to get the ultimate amount of savings on your purchase.
