Home Depot Military Discounts
by Omar Baumann - Retired Army

My son was told by the Home Depot in Mount Vernon, Washington, that military discounts were only honored on most holidays.
I sent a letter to the CEO at Home Depot and after numerous times of trying to contact the person that replied, I finally received a response today. She verified that only holidays were military discount days.
I sent a reply stating that they would be losing a lot of military business when the word got around, since Lowe's gives a discount every day.
I also told them the Home Depot that I shop at has always given me a discount anytime, everytime.
If you would like the email I received from Home Depot, I would be glad to send it to you.
Mr. Baumann, thank you for your service. And thank you for letting us know that Home Depot corporate has confirmed that company policy is to offer the military discount only on major holidays.
Apparently, this is at the store managers' discretion, and the manager of your store seems to be more astute than some. I'm happy to hear that you've been able to receive the discount at other times.
This is just one of many reasons we shop at Lowe's rather than Home Depot. We snagged a very good deal on a washer, dryer and refrigerator a couple of years ago, and got the military discount (cheerfully given) on top of a great sale price! Thank you, Lowe's!
If you still have the e-mail from Home Depot, I'd be happy to publish it. You can e-mail it by forwarding it to the address on the notification e-mail you received from us with a link to this page, or by clicking reply and attaching it to your reply (by copy and paste).
