In an effort to help you score the lowest prices possible, we’ll dive into the Lowe’s Price Match policy and explore everything you need to know to make the most of this valuable offering. Whether you’re a seasoned DIY enthusiast or a homeowner embarking on a renovation project, arming yourself with knowledge about Lowe’s Price Match will empower you to shop confidently and save money on your home improvement journey.
Does Lowe’s Price Match?
Lowe’s does offer price matching through their Lowest Price Guarantee. Lowe’s will match the prices of identical products from local competitors and online retailers to give you the guaranteed lowest price.
Lowe’s Price Match Exclusions
There are some exclusions to the Lowe’s price match policy. The Lowe’s Lowest Price Guarantee does not apply to any of the following:
- Online prices from one zip code to another
- Prices from one Lowe’s store to another
- Competitor pricing for professional services (including installation and labor)
- Discounts available to select groups like military and contractor discounts
- Custom products
- Credit term and finance offers
- Used, refurbished, discontinued, clearance, seasonal, open-box, closeout, or damaged products
- Products with promotions, rebates, or special offers
- Volume or wholesale discount pricing
- Pricing from membership wholesalers
- Third-party marketplace seller pricing
- Pricing from bid and auction sites
- Sales tax
- Pricing errors or misprints
In addition to the exclusions above, the Lowest Price Guarantee cannot be combined with other coupons, discounts, promotions, or offers. So, if you can save more with a promotion or sale, it’d be better to skip the price match altogether.
How To Request A Price Match
The process for requesting a price match will vary depending on if you’re shopping in-store or online. In either case, the process starts with research. You’ll need to find retailers offering the product you’re looking to purchase at a lower price and document that price.
Requesting A Price Match In-Store
To request a price match in-store, you’ll need to flag down a Lowe’s associate. Make sure to bring proof of the lower price with you to the store. This proof could be in the form of a photo, a printout, a cutout, or a page on a site. You’ll need to provide this proof to the associate.
Once you show the associate the lower price, the associate will investigate to determine whether or not the price is valid and make sure it doesn’t fall into the exclusions category. As long as the price is eligible, you’ll then receive the price match.
Requesting A Price Match Online
To request a price match while shopping on the Lowe’s website you’ll need to call 877-465-6937 or press the live chat on the site. You’ll be connected to a Lowe’s team member to share the lower price. The team member will validate the price and provide the price match if the price is eligible. You’ll then have the option to order the item with the price match for delivery or local pickup.
Does Lowe’s Offer Price Adjustments?
Lowe’s also offers price adjustments in addition to price matching. If you purchase an item before a price drop, you can request an adjustment within 30 days of purchase. You can request an adjustment by calling Lowe’s support at 877-465-6937, or you can visit in-store and speak with an associate. You’ll need to bring your purchase receipt with you to the store in order to receive a refund.
More Ways To Save More Money Shopping At Lowe’s
Saving money while shopping at Lowe’s, or any home improvement store, can be achieved through various strategies. If you’re not in a hurry to get what you need, taking your time to score the best prices will save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
Lowe’s Coupons and Promotions
Lowe’s regularly runs sales and promotions. Keep an eye on Lowe’s official website for promotions and coupons. You can sign up for the Lowe’s newsletters to receive exclusive offers and updates. Online coupon websites or third-party apps may also have additional discounts.
Seasonal Sales and Clearance Sales
Certain seasonal sales happen every year. You can wait until Black Friday, Memorial Day, or Labor Day to stock up on the tools, materials, and equipment you need.
Are you an active military member or a retired veteran? Lowe’s offers a 10% military discount to active duty, retired military personnel, and veterans, as well as their immediate family members.
Lowe’s Pro Services
If you’re a professional contractor, consider signing up for Lowe’s Pro Rewards. You’ll receive exclusive discounts and benefits with up to 1.5% back on every purchase in the form of Lowe’s e-gift cards.
Other Home Improvement Retailers That Offer Price Matches
Lowe’s isn’t the only home improvement store that offers price matching. If you can get the same price with a price match, it doesn’t really matter which store you shop at. It may make sense to price match with a different retailer if there isn’t a Lowe’s near you. The following retailers also offer a price match:
- Home Depot
- Ace Hardware (Select Stores)
While Home Depot and Walmart offer a price match across locations, Ace’s price match policy will vary by location. You may want to call your local Ace first to see if they price match before you visit assuming you’ll get a price match.
