MOORESVILLE, N.C., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowe's Companies, Inc. announced today it will expand its military discount program by offering 10 percent off personal purchases every day to current and honorably discharged members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The new program uses a MyLowes card for quick identification, is available both in U.S. stores and on Lowes.com and offers easy online enrollment. The discount is effective immediately.
"Lowe's was founded by Carl Buchan, an Army veteran who wanted to make home building and home improvement affordable for returning GIs and their families," said Robert A. Niblock, chairman, president and CEO. "The values and leadership instilled through his military service formed the foundation of our company. Enhancing our discount program honors his memory and the commitment servicemen and women and their families make to our country."
Lowe's has offered discounts to veterans and military servicemen and women for more than a decade. Current and former servicemen and women can follow these easy steps to enroll in the discount program:
- Visit Lowes.com/military and complete a short personal profile.
- Check the box to receive a free MyLowes card.
After the one-time enrollment, U.S. military customers can present their MyLowes card at the store cash register, scan their card at self-checkout or sign in to their account at Lowes.com and receive the discount. In addition to simple checkout in stores and online shopping, the MyLowes card offers free parcel shipping for purchases ordered online with no required minimum purchase.
