How to Get Discounts at Lowe’s
If you are ready for some home or garden improvement projects, set your sites on Lowe’s and get it done. Whatever it is you need – paint, new appliances, remodeling supplies for kitchen or bathroom, or just new plants or patio furniture, there are some ways to save while accomplishing your goals.
Read our tips for managing money at Lowe’s before your next trip there:
1. Text alerts
Sign up for text alerts for free and you will receive all current sales and discounts to help you plan your expenditures.
2. Return plants
You might desire to update your house or patio with luscious plants, but not all of us have green thumbs. If you see that plants you got from Lowe’s are not destined to survive at your care, return them back with the receipt and get your money back. You can do this within an entire year!
You can use all manufacturer coupons you can find. So never buy cleaning supplies from Tide, Clorox, Bounty or Charmin without a manufacturer coupon from your local newspaper ad section.
4. Price matching
Lowe’s will honor competitor’s price on an exact item with a proof, so bring the ad from any other store and get the same price at Lowe’s. This even applies to online sales!
5. Military discount
Lowe’s offers 10% off for all active and retired military personnel. If you are a veteran or serving in armed forces at the moment, you should get registered on Lowes.com for the discount program and get MyLowe’s card for all future purchases. The card and the 10% discount can also be enjoyed by all immediate family members.
If you have a small to medium size painting job, check out Mistint Area first. Many people refuse to buy a custom mixed paint if the shade is not right and it then gets very deeply discounted.
7. Yellow tags
Lowe’s has two different yellow tags and both kinds are good. One type offers a temporary price reduction and is called “New Lower Price”, while the second will apply to all clearance items, reduced permanently.
8. Lowe’s credit card
Apply for Lowe’s Advantage Card and enjoy 5% off on all orders in-store and online. The discount will be applied after all other coupons and price reductions, but there might be a few restrictions, so read the small print. Always pay off the credit card to avoid interest charged.
9. Large appliances
The two times per year when you should buy large appliances at Lowe’s are August and Black Friday weekend. You can get your refrigerators and stoves for a much as 30% off, so take advantage of that.
10. Free deliveries
You can get free local delivery every day from Lowe’s, except Christmas and Thanksgiving as long as your purchase is over $396, not including taxes, installation, haul away, and extended warranty. Free delivery does not include installation or haul away.
