Update 14 July 2010: Lowe’s has reiterated their policy about the military discount here: Lowe’s Official Answer on Military Discounts
Home improvement retailer Lowe’s has been great about offering a 10% military discount for major holiday weekends of Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day. Now they are expanding their discount to be available every day for active-duty, National Guard and reserve, retiree and disabled service members, and their families. Other veterans will still be able to take advantage of the discount on the promotional holiday weekends. The complete press release can be found here.
This is a great gift from Lowe’s to the military community. As we all know, our home improvement schedules don’t always fall in line with the calendar. Now we will be able to take advantage of this generous discount whenever our schedules permit.
Also, don’t forget to ask for military discounts whenever you are shopping. In the last week, I’ve gotten a discount at Home Depot and also at our optician. Those dollars saved can really add up!
