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
**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.
**Lowe’s Military/Veteran Discount Policy
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.
