Home Depot and Lowes will be celebrating the July Fourth holiday with summer savings. Home Depot roles out its Red, White and Blue Savings Event which runs until July 5th. Savings up to 30% on major appliances. Ugh. why would you want to go to Home Depot and not Lowes?Well, the reality is you will probably be going to both.
Like Lowes, The Home Depot offers a Military Discount. At Home Depot it is a 10% off a single-receipt purchase at The Home Depot U.S. stores. The discount is available on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day to all active-duty, National Guard and reserve, retiree and disabled service members, honorably discharged veterans, and their spouses and dependent children. The customer’s valid military ID card or a valid DD214 Form must be presented at the time of purchase.

So why would I put Home Depot promotions on my site? When it comes to home improvement, with all things being equal, most customers tend to go with the lowest price. However, having the lowest price doesn’t mean you are getting the best value.
Why do you shop at your favorite supermarket? Maybe you like the people who work in the store. They are friendly, courteous and helpful. You may think supermarkets are all about price but if that were true we would all be in the Dollar Store buying markdowns and clearance potato chips. To compete in the marketplace, prices have to be fair, service has to be acceptable, and products must be in stock and delivered on time.
For me, the distinguishing factor has to be customer service. I am not going to convince you to shop Lowes over Home Depot simply because I work at Lowes. Both stores are highly successful and fiercely competitive making it hard to pick a favorite based on price alone.
Although prices at Home Depot and Lowe’s sometimes fluctuate, they’re often exactly the same, and the differences typically are slight. In the end, the overall experience you get for your money will often return you to Lowe’s for the best product selection, customer service and value for your hard earned dollars.
And don’t forget Amazon for some great deals on items not sold at Lowes or Home Depot.
