I received an email on another discount that is offered to military members from Home Depot and Lowe’s. Please read below as to the details for receiving 10% off your purchases. Some exclusions also apply. While I was verifying the requirements, I also came across a site on the Home Depot page that lists some of the wonderful things they have done for our military members and families.
What: Home Depot/Lowe’s Military Discounts
They offer a 10 percent discount, up to a $500 maximum, to all active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members with a valid military ID, every day of the week.
All other military veterans qualify for a 10 percent discount during Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Independence Day.
They offer an all day, every day 10 percent discount to all military personnel who are active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members, with a valid, government-issued military ID card.
All other military veterans will receive the discount on the Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day weekends.
But please remember when asking about the discount, if the employee does not understand, do not make a big deal out of it. Ask to speak with the manager, and have your ID with you. And it must be a valid Government issued ID. It seems sometimes the employees get confused as to which policy a person falls under, which is understandable if they never served. So please be patient and courteous when asking about the discount.
Remember if you are a Veteran, but not Active, Reserve, Retired or disabled Veteran you are only authorized the discount on the above stated Holidays.
If you Are Active, Reserve, Retired, or a Disabled Veteran with a valid ID you can get the discount any day of the week.
To read some great things that Home Depot has done for our military members:
On Saturday, July 23, 2016 Kersten & I participated at the Military Appreciation Day Event at Home Depot. Kersten’s efforts were again greatly appreciated, especially as the sky was very dark with an impending thunderstorm when we arrived!!!
We raised $39 but more importantly we were able to thank many veterans for their service, alert them about www.PBYR.org and demonstrate partnering support with Home Depot. Sue was very nice and helped with our booth, chairs and related event details and these efforts were appreciated. The Veterans we talked with said they really enjoy Home Depot’s efforts with Military Appreciation Day and many come to this year after year.
Oh! Don’t forget the Home Depot Military/Veteran Discount Policy, they offer a 10 percent discount, up to a $500 maximum, to all active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their family members with a valid military ID, every day of the week. All other military veterans qualify for a 10 percent discount during Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Independence Day.
Have a beautiful day!!

On November 14, 2015 PBYR and the Heinzen-Ditter VFW shared a table at the Plymouth Home Depot Store for Veteran’s Appreciation Day. Many of the Vets told me that they came to Home Depot just for this celebration—not to obtain materials for home repair projects. Special thanks to Sylvia, Doug and Paul for donating several hours to honor Vets that stopped by our table to chat. PBYR has great appreciation for Plymouth Home Depot’s efforts for hosting his yearly event with barbeque grilling and all that they do to help Veterans and their families in Plymouth!!!
On November 7, 2015 PBYR and community partners helped a 86 year young veteran and his wife move to new housing. This moving event was completed on a Saturday and involved over 45 individuals that worked very hard to assist this family. PBYR send kudos and thanks to all our partners in this effort: PLYMOUTH FIRE DEPARTMENT, WAYZATA FOOTBALL TEAM VOLUNTEERS AND THEIR COACHES, HOME DEPOT and volunteers that provided trucks, trailers, muscles, and food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These community efforts represent the health, spirit and vitality of Plymouth.
PBYR could not have provided this service without the coordination and help from our partners. The service member was very appreciative and stated he was overwhelmed by the number of people that volunteered to help a stranger.
The Sun Sailor recently did a nice story on the move that you can view here.
Below we have some pictures of the hard working volunteers. Please click on the images to make them larger. Again, a huge round of thanks for all the help.
In October 2015 PBYR helped a Veteran who recently lost temporary employment with the repair of his car’s brake light, a Holiday gas card and gave him helpful employment leads. He was very appreciative of PBYR’s efforts.
