Lowes & Home Depot Military Discounts

The nation's two largest home improvement stores, Lowe's and Home Depot, are
again offering a 10-percent military discount for Memorial Day, starting
Thursday.

Active-duty personnel, National Guard and reserve members, retirees,
honorably discharged veterans and immediate family members of all those
groups are eligible. Customers who request the discount should show a valid
military ID card or other proof of service.

The stores differ in their offers:

* Lowe's discount is offered from Thursday through May 25 on purchases up to
$5,000. That means the maximum discount will be $500. The offer is good for
in-store purchases only and it does not apply to online sales, previous
sales, purchase of services or gift cards.

* The Home Depot's discount is offered in stores from Thursday through May 27
on purchases up to $2,000, for a $200 maximum discount.
