Home Depot Credit Card 5% Discount Matching Lowe's 5% Discount
Cashier at Check Out - Complaint
GARDEN GROVE, CALIFORNIA -- Less than a year ago an associate at a Depot had me apply for a commercial Home Depot credit card telling me that I would get 5% off my purchases. Upon being approved for the card, I was told that at the register I needed to ask for the 5% Lowe's match. When I went to use it in Orange county the stores needed to see my Lowe's card. I have a Lowe's commercial credit which I have and showed them and have ever since with not much trouble. One time at the Garden Grove store the cashier made me show the Lowe's card and my drivers license and checked the name on all three and told me that she had to make sure that I wasn't using someone else's Lowe's card in order to get the 5% discount. Today at the Garden Grove store I was told that the manager told them that the 5% discount did not apply to the Home Depot commercial credit card.
FYI: At Lowe's the 5% discount is applied automatically when the card is swiped and since it is a "Lowe's American Express" card, American Express gives 2 points for every dollar spent at Lowe's in which for every 2500 points that I cash in I get a $25 Lowe's gift card. This is an additional 2% in perks. CitiBank which issues my Home Depot Commercial card does not give any perks.
