How to Get the Lowe's Military Discount

The easiest way is to sign up for a MyLowe's card online and link it to your phone number. I just did the process and it only took a minute. Here's how to do it:

  1. Sign up for a MyLowe's account here
  2. After you create your account, click the banner under your account settings to verify your military service. It should look something like this:
  3. Complete the registration details. The form will ask for name, date of birth, military branch, military status, and date of separation. If you have not separated, just leave the date of separation blank. Here's what the form looks like:
  4. That's it! In most cases, your identity will be verified instantly. If not, you may need to scan and upload some document to verify your past or current military service. When you're done, you should see a screen like the one below:

How to Get Military Family Members on the Lowe's Military Discount

Immediate military family members can simply use the servicemember's phone number attached to the MyLowes account. They can also use the MyLowes card at checkout online or in the store to access the 10% military discount. Immediate family members include spouses and dependent children up to 18 years of age.

The Home Depot military discount is similar to Lowe's. Lean more about it in my article.

What If Lowe's Doesn't Give Me the Military Discount?

Thanks to the automated online enrollment, the discount is applied as soon as you scan your MyLowes card. You can also just type in the phone number associated with the account. This makes it easy to get the discount online or in the store. If there is something wrong with the online verification system, you can verify in store with any of the following IDs:

  • Veteran’s Identification Card (VIC)
  • Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC)
  • Department of Defense Common Access Card
  • Uniformed Services Identification Card
  • Active Duty Family Member
  • Uniformed Services Identification Card
  • Active Duty State driver license and identification with veteran’s designation
  • DD214 or DD256

Makes sure you confirm your military discount either online or at the customer service desk inside the store before you get the register. That way you won't have any issues getting your discount.

  1. My card has been established for many years, but when I went to buy a refrigerator a few months back and I was told that no appliances could not be gotten with the Military discount. Has that changer, because
    military.com was saying that it could be used on such. as appliances. What has changed? Why would they not take?

  2. I’m a vet with the military discount. I drop my land line and only use my cell. what number at Lowes do I call ?

  3. How do I update my phone number in the Lowe’s system. Every time I go to tell them my phone number, they tell me they cannot fine my phone number. I did get a new phone number.

  4. I see some comments about not getting the 10% military discount on some items. Don’t forget, it says “on eligible items”. There is no list that I can find for the eligible items but I would assume once you get to a certain dollar amount they won’t give you the discount. Like for instance a zero turn lawnmower going for $5,000 would be a $500 loss for them.

  5. Suddenly I must us a phone number that I haven’t used for 7 years. At the store IO was told to call 800-445-6937 to have Customer Service correct the number. I was on hold for a half hour before I hung up. Great Customer Service, Lowe’s!

  6. I made 2 separate purchases at Lowes yesterday evening. I made 1 purchase and gave my phone number to receive my military discount. For the second purchase, I used mylowes card and did NOT receive my military discount.

    I logged on my account this morning and confirmed everything is correct then started a chat with a live agent. That agent informed me that using mylowes card does not automatically apply my military discount. I was informed that I needed to use the phone number on the account.

    Something must have changed at Lowes. I recommended validating and if this is correct, this site needs to be updated.

  7. I’m a veteran that’s gotten my military discount for years. On my last receipt it said I should update my profile to get the discount. How did my veteran status suddenly change? I’m having problems updating my profile on line. I was also told the veteran discount does not apply to the refrigerator I just bought. Where does it say that?

  8. I have been trying to update my info with you for some time per your request. Your phones are busy or there is a LONG wait and I have not been able to get thru.
    I have been in your system for some time (years). I am 85 years old and I do not know who to speak to now.

    Please advise

      • I signed in to the Lowe’s Login page and once I signed it all it said was that I was eligible for the 10% discount, I wanted to verify my primary address but it would not let me. So I guess this means I have updated the military part.

  9. Bought some Kobalt tools on sale the other day in Valdosta and the register said “these items not eligible for discount” even the manager couldn’t get it to work and had no idea what was going on. I had just bought a ceiling fan with my military discount for 149.00 that same day. So what’s going with that?
