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.
