10% discount every day for having a good conduct discharge!

876460If you’re a veteran or in the service, checkout the Lowes military discount!

A couple of weeks ago, I took a copy of my Navy discharge form (DD-214) to our local Lowes home improvement store to sign up for their 10% military discount.  I had tried to register online, but, apparently, my service was so long ago, the site didn’t find anything on me. (Cool!)

The Lowes website states: “Lowe’s established the 10% Military Discount to extend our gratitude to the men and women who have served or are currently serving our country in the US armed forces.”

With our do-it-yourself projects, we visit Lowes quite often and have already saved quite a bit.  Unfortunately, Arkansas has one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation and, with the local sales taxes added in, sales tax comes up to just a little bit less than the discount.

So now, when I get my wallet out at the checkout counter, I take out 2 cards, the credit card I use to pay for my purchase and the MyLowes card to get 10% off most purchases.

  • Hi Mike – well you’ve worked your way round the system to get the best of the benefit possible. We have pensioner days … and probably a lot of other benefits, if we compare to other countries – I use the obvious ones, but don’t seem to need many of them. Cheers Hilary

      I wish there were more businesses that offered these kinds of savings, but, unfortunately, there are not. Oh, sure, they all — or nearly all — have sales, but we never really shop to take advantage of sales. We just buy what we need — or want, sometimes — regardless on whether it’s on sale or not. Often, what we want to purchase isn’t available locally, so we end up purchasing online, generally through Amazon Prime. Years ago, we went shopping to Little Rock several times a year. Now, when we go there, it’s for medical appointment and we very seldom stop anywhere to shop.
