So, as of today 6/10/2019 Lowe’s has apparently changed the military discount program. No longer is it valid on online purchases (in store only now), and restrictions appear to have been added to sale and clearance items.

After years of Lowe’s improving their program, I started shopping there over Home Depot. However, now with them reverting back to a system that is difficult to use and only applies to some purchases, I will be returning to Home Depot. As I understand, although Home Depot is also in store only, I do not believe their are any restrictions on sale items being discounted. As a disabled vet, I always liked that I could purchase online & if I couldn’t pick it up, someone else could.

However, it appears Lowe’s no longer wants to give vets a break. Not sure how makes sense for Lowe’s but, Home Depot will be benefiting from their choice.

Product or Service Mentioned: Lowes Rewards Program.

Reason of review: Not as described/ advertised.

Both stores offer the discount but I never get the military discount on clearance items when I shop at Lowes or Home Depot.

Before you run off to Home Depot you may want to look at all the vets complaining about their discounts. Perhaps both stores should just stop offering discounts.

When I was McHomeless in Ashland, Oregon, I lived under bridge #23 with a Vietnam Veteran by the name of Dermot. Dermot used to hold up a panhandling sign that said "VIETNAM VETERAN, '68 TET OFFENSIVE, BRONZE STAR, I HELPED YOU, SO NOW CAN YOU HELP ME ?" I think that everyone should help out these poor veterans who served our country.

After being grossly harassed by Electrical Dept employee in Catskill store ranting he didn’t knowus(he actually did), and Lowe’s Customer Service even sequestered the BBB over the matter, you’ll never see this vet in that store again. Since incident he’s even spread bad gossip about our character which is a fabrication to save face.

I’m not afraid to give my name. Brian Neal.

After having Customer Service do nothing about a employee of the electrical dept in Catskill store rants he doesn’t know me to this veteran, and then spreads small town gossip about us, I will never shop at Lowe’s. This happened on 1/20/19.

I am a disabled vet also, and I really am upset about this. Even the VA offers more help for vets 50% or more disabled.

I could see this if they made some compensation for those with serious health conditions related to their military service. I also have no reason to shop at Lowes in the future.

Sorry but they owe you nothing sir. Every year that goes by is another year the events you hold so dear are that much further in the past.

Get over yourself as you are no better then the people you served.

Remember your oath? You’re starting to sound like a petty little tyrant.

Well, actually, I never asked for the discount originally. You may remember Lowe’s associates asking veterans to sign up for there program several years ago.

This was in order to gather email addresses and draw business from competitors. It seems it worked and now they don’t want to honor the program they created. I’m no petty tyrant. However I am also no spineless coward.

I maintained my oath and served my country with honor. Which is more than I’m sure can be said for you.

Sad! Obviously this is somehow personal to you.

Only you know why you need to be so hateful to a complete stranger, but I sure hope your life gets better. Have a blessed day!

You have no respect for veterans and their lives they risked for someone so thoughtless as you!

I agree with you. They are like the wacko mail carriers who give all of their fellow workers a bad name when they decide that they are going to "go postal" just because they have become disgruntled.

You should appreciate any discount you get from any store. They do not owe you a discount. Thank those that give you one but you have no right to complain when a store doesn't give you something they don't owe you.

They created to draw my business. And now they’ve altered and lost my business.

If you didn't think it's owed to you, why are you complaining about it on the internet? Companies change policies all the time.

If you go over and look at the Home Depot complaints you will see vets complaining there as well.

Appreciate and thank the stores that give you a discount. If you don't feel you are owed a discount you shouldn't be complaining that you aren't getting one for whatever the reason.

How did their employees know you were a vet if you weren't asking for a veterans discount?

Vet here. I pretty much agree that no one owes us discounts.

However, no one is owed my business either.

This guy pretty much just said he was going to shop where he can get the best deal. Pretty much every fiscally responsible person does that.
