There are several ways to get 10 percent off coupons for purchases at Lowe's home improvement centers, and many opportunities to get free shipping, free services or other discounts -- sometimes up to 75 percent off.
New Customer Discounts
USPS Moving Kit
Every change-of-address packet from the U.S. Postal Service contains a coupon code for 10 percent off any purchase at Lowe's. This is a one-time use code.

You can order the change-of-address kit or pick one up at your local post office. You can also get a printable coupon online from the USPS website. However, the online entry requires a minimum mail forwarding of two weeks, so you must actually moving, and the site will verify your identity first.
Lowe’s Movers Program
An even easier way is to simply go to the online page for Lowe's Movers Program, fill in the blanks and register. You might receive other Lowe's coupons and offers in addition to a one-time 10 percent off coupon.
Ask Store Employees
While shopping in Lowe's, you can directly ask for a coupon by visiting the Service Department Desk. Responses will vary by store, but generally if you can show an out-of-area identification and explain that you are new to the area and store, they will give you a 10 percent coupon.
Other Discounts and Offers

Lowe's offers coupons and discounts for joining the company's mailing list. Discounts change and rotate periodically, but you can receive offers like a 10 percent off printable coupon, or $10 off a purchase of $50, which is equivalent to a 20 percent discount.
Lowe's offers an in-store 10 percent military discount to those in active military duty service, retired veterans, VA recipients, and their immediate families.
However, restrictions apply. Only veterans enjoy a special discount on three holidays -- Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day. All members of the military, including retired veterans and VA recipients, should be prepared to show identification and proof of service.
Price Matching + 10 Percent
While not a coupon, Lowe's does offer to match competitor prices and beat them by 10 percent. This applies only to standard retail pricing -- not closeout, clearance or damaged item pricing. Check with your local store first to see if there are price or quantity restrictions.

Make Sure Your Coupons Are Valid
Coupon sites often appear to be offering Lowe's coupons, but use caution. Not all of these sites offer current and valid coupons. A few sites, like RetailMeNot.com and Offers.com validate the offer, show expiration dates and may display how many people have used the coupon or offer that very day.
Never purchase coupon offers on sites like eBay or Craigslist. These coupons likely have already been used, and the offers might be a scam.
