Extra Discounts For Veterans

A veteran – whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve – is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The ‘United States of America’, for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’ (Author Unknown)

Some companies give Veterans and their families “extra special” treatment.  For example, I recently heard that Home Depot offers Veterans and their families a 10% discount.  I confirmed this with a representative from Home Depot, who told me that the company gives “a 10% discount on non-sale items for phone orders and in store purchases.” 

I then contacted Lowe’s to make sure that Lowe’s gives the same type discount, and this is what I was told:

We offer an all-day, every-day 10% Military discount to all military personnel who are active, reserve, retired or disabled veterans and their immediate family members, with a valid, government-issued Military ID or VIC (Veterans Identity Card).  This discount is only available in store, please visit your local Lowe’s store, provide a valid, government-issued Military ID or VIC, and ask the cashier for the discount.

So, Veterans, the lesson is that you can get a 10% discount at Home Depot and Lowe’s, and you can also get discounts at many other shops and stores.   Be sure to ask for a discount, you’ve certaninly earned it.
