Home Depot NOT giving Military 10% off on All Purchase.

FYI
Home Depot NOT giving Military 10% off on All Purchase.
I was just at Home Depot and purchased some plastic storage containers that wer eon sale for $9.97 and a few other items.
Got to the front and the toatal was about $75 but only saw a $1 discount for military....
I asked if this was a mistake. She said no. Anything on sale you do not get the 10% off now.
This is the first time I saw this. Anyone else want totest your Home Depot Store and buy an item on sale to sdee what happens?
I do not believe Lowes does this.
Maybe its time to go back and use Lowes.

Haven’t been lately but won’t be doing Lowe’s. Ohio puts stamp on license if you want when you show proof of ex military etc.

Showed that at Lowe’s in Ohio and they said, no good. Have to bring paperwork to service desk and sign up. Guess the state verification does not count.

Will see what I get on sale item at Home Depot - where the stamp on my license is enough to get the discount.

Probably been scammed too many times.

I figure it is so they can sell the information and make back more that the 10% discount they give. Could be mistaken but don’t need any more sales calls or junk mail.

At Lowes you have to register on line or I believe at the service desk. After registering all you have to do is give them your phone number and you automatically get your discount. At Home Depot I show them my VA ID card if they hassle you ask for the manager. No discount on sale items is bs

My daughter cashiers at our local Home Depot and says she can spot an old veteran right off and gives them their 10% discount. Between me and her grandpa she has a pretty good sense of the old fellers.

It's nice that Home Depot and Lowes give us the military discount, but they don't have to. I'm grateful for the discount when I get it. But I'm certainly not going to throw a fit when I don't get a discount on a sale item. As someone mentioned, to get the Lowes discount either sign up on line or at customer service. It's a three minute process. I was told too many people were asking for the military discount that didn't qualify. This was their way of weeding them out. Again, not something to throw a fit about. Semper Fidelis.

The "V" on my license is sufficient for the State of Florida. It should be sufficient for a store. I had to produce proof of my veteran status in the form of a DD214 to get the "V". As for cheating their system, a license is legal PHOTO id. Anyone can get and use my phone number. No too many people would even want to use my face.

Zowie. Be grateful they give a military discount at all.

No discount for sale items seems perfectly plausible to me.

A few minutes of verification has to be expected, why should they take your word for it? Not everybody is honest.

Enough folks trying to take undo advantage and complaining about a benefit they don't have to provide could cause them to pull the program all together.

Exactly... It is usually the reason places do away with things. People forget the reason they give the discount, to support and honor those who served.. A few people make a stink beciaw it becomes an "entitlement" then is gone..
