Help Sign How do I save on a big lowes purchase?

I'm going to be purchasing about $1500 in roofling shingles this week and I know there has to be a way to save a little of that money. I thought about just going to kroger to purchase a bunch of lowes gift cards to get the fuel points, but not sure if that will work as I will need to purchase alot of them. I see there is a 10% coupon and I've signed up for that and hope to have it before they supplies are bought, but does anyone know of any other way to save that I'm not aware of? I appreciate any advice you can offer.

I went on their website and printed off a 10% off coupon. It says it's for foreclosed homes but it's been verified that anyone can use it. I used the q to purchase shelves.

^^ this ^^ is the quickest way to get one.

just ask the PO personnel @ the counter for Lowes moving packet and they'll give you one or two. Or just say Change of address packet.

Depending on your tax rate, that'll be more than enough to cover for the sales tax. If you have the FRN card, make sure to swipe it to get add'l points when you shop at a participating store.

The Lowe's charge card comes with an automatic 5% off, so you could put that on top of the 10% off moving kit...then, pay off the charge at the front desk.

I noticed it is YMMV depending on each store's SM so it is worth asking customer service before you start shopping.

Do they let you stack % off coupons like CVS does? My son is building a shed for his motorcycle and needs more lumber for it.

The packets not contain a code that you enter on the lowes web site and they email a coupon. Says it is limited to one per household. Although I havent tried for a second yet.

How expensive were they, if you don't mind my asking?

We're remodeling. We used rolled vinyl in the bathroom, but I want hardwood or a hardwood look alike in the living room. I just can't make up my mind about what would be best.

No I don't mind but it really depends on how big your rooms are ours was about 2.00 per square feet and another 2.00 per square feet for installation, Carpeteria was so helpful they came and measured the rooms we put it in livingroom and main hallway, best purchase so happy with quality of floors.

I got a couple of coupons in the mail the other day, one for $25/$250. I don't know if they are card specific or not. I'll look and if they aren't you can have them. I don't have any major purchases to make.

Thanks so much for this information!

Yesterday we HAD to buy a washing machine... and a dryer. The military discount saved us over $150.00. And I will be getting a prepaid visa worth $150.00 as a rebate.

I used a gift card reseller when I bought a lawn mower. I used a plastic jungle but there are tons of them. People resell their gift cards they aren't going to use and then the company sells them to people at 7% or so off the face value. I used a company that let me use paypal (for the guarantee) and bought them and it worked like a piece of cake. I got 20% off (competitor's home depot coupon) and used the gift cards so my total savings was about 27%. If you are interested just surf "gift card resellers".

If you buy large amounts $1000+ some of the resellers now give you a bigger discount.
