The best hacks for saving money at Lowe’s

Whether you are building a new home, moving, or refurbishing your existing home, Lowe’s is unmatched. Customers love their range of quality products and the support they offer for things like installation and kitchen fitting.

While Lowe's offers their own warranty on many of products, it often comes up short in providing the most complete coverage. Only an extended warranty plan can provide protection against things like accidents, damage, wear and tear, and more. Shop with the Mulberry bowser extension to view the best in product protection for all your Lowe's purchases.

What are some ways to save money at Lowe’s?

Lowe's is a great resource for everything from home improvement projects to gardening and more. Here are some of our top recommendations for how to save money at Lowe's.

Borrowing from Lowe’s tool rental

Renting tools and equipment is a smart alternative when you are embarking on any DIY project. Rather than wasting hundreds or even thousands of dollars buying tools, equipment, and machinery, you can access the highest quality options at a day rate using Lowe’s tool rental. They offer items to cover both indoor and outdoor projects, and even provide truck rental services. You don’t have to spend money on a tool you will only use once.

Getting a fair price with Lowe’s rebate center

Lowe’s offers a comprehensive online portal to submit rebates, track your claim status, and search current offers. It's a great place to look if you have a list of items you need to buy and are trying to time your purchase strategically. Plus, they have a list of instant savings coupons for various brand deals that are happening at any given time, whether its savings on LG appliances or Maytag dishwashers.

Compete with other sellers using price match

Does Lowe’s price match? Yes, they do! All you have to do is provide proof that you found a lower price for the exact item at one of the qualifying retailers, and they will guarantee a price match. If you’re shopping in-person, you can simply show proof to a sales associate at checkout. When you're shopping online, you can request a price match through their portal.

Avoid unwanted items with Lowe’s return policy

Don’t sit on unwanted items or settle for a major purchase that doesn’t meet your expectations. The Lowe’s return policy is thorough and designed to support their customers. Even if you don’t have a receipt available, an associate will likely be able to track the purchase when you simply provide the credit or debit card number you used to secure the item.

Be mindful of your timing, however, as some items have a 48-hour return policy (like major appliances), whereas others have a 30-day policy. Make sure you check before making your purchase, so you are prepared to meet the appropriate deadline.

Lowe’s gift card balance

Companies make money from the balances we leave on gift cards, and Lowe’s makes it simple and straightforward to check your gift card balance. By entering your gift card number on their site, you can quickly see any remaining balance, and they also make it easy to pay for items using two payment methods, so you can use up the remainder of the gift card balance and cover the rest with your usual credit or debit card.

Protect your Lowe's purchases with Mulberry

Protecting your purchases is important to ensure they last as long as possible and you're able to get the most out of them. Shop with the Mulberry browser extension to find the product protection plans available for your purchases in real time, and get notified of deals and updates so you can save on your everyday shopping!
