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:
- Sign up for a MyLowe's account here
- After you create your account, click the banner under your account settings to verify your military service. It should look something like this:
- 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:
- 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.
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.
