For Some time Lowes has given a 5% discount for all purchases made on their credit card.
Recently a sales associate at Home Depot told me that if I have a Home Depot card that I can ask for a 5% discount. Home Depot even refers to this as the "Lowes Discount". I have a Home Depot card and have gotten in the habit of asking for the additional 5% when I check out.
Here's the ironic part: Some of the Home Depot associates have asked to see my Lowes Card. I do not have a Lowes card and therefore have been denied the 5% discount. Now it would seem to me that Home Depot is offering me this discount TO ENCOURAGE ME TO NOT GET A LOWES CARD!
Which scenario would you think Home Depot prefer: That I ONLY have their card or that I have both cards?
Has anyone else encountered this?
