In such cases, Lowe’s Price Promise may be able to help. The retailer will match the prices and delivery fees of many of its competitors, both online and in-store. Read on for everything you need to know about Lowe’s price match policy.

Does Lowe’s Price Match?

Lowe’s will price match all local retailers. If you find that another local retailer in your area offers the same item for less, you can let a Lowe’s associate know, and they can help you get a discount for the difference. In order to validate the lower price, Lowe’s requires that you bring some sort of proof when making a price match request. Valid proof may include the printed ad in question or a photo or printout of it. A listing on a local retailer’s website showing the lower price may also be used as proof. Once the Lowe’s associate has validated that the competitor’s offer is real, is currently available and that the items are in stock, they will give you a discount for the difference in price.

In addition to local retailers, Lowe’s will also price match with select online retailers. The online retailers included in Lowe’s Price Promise are:

To request a price match with an online retailer, you can contact a Lowe’s customer service representative through the Lowes.com chat feature or by calling 1-877-465-6937. In order to qualify for price matching, the competitor’s offer must ship to your address and be currently available. 

Lowe’s Price Promise includes both the cost of the item and the shipping and delivery fees, so you’ll always end up paying the same amount you would somewhere else.

Does Lowe’s Price Match Their Own Stores?

Lowe’s Price Promise extends only to local competitor retailers. Unfortunately, even if you find the same item cheaper at another Lowe’s location, you will not be able to price match, as Lowe’s Price Promise does not cover other Lowe’s stores.

Does Lowe’s Price Match Their App or Website?

Lowe’s states that because their online store is national in scope, you may find that products or prices sometimes differ from those in your local store. To deal with this, Lowe’s has a price protection policy that ensures you pay a fair price when ordering items online. If you select in-store pickup or Lowe’s Home Delivery and the price of the item differs online from your local store, then you will pay the lower of the two prices when picking up your purchase.

What Is Lowe’s Policy on Price Adjustments?

If you’ve purchased an item at Lowe’s and then noticed that the price has dropped afterward, you may be able to request a price adjustment for the difference. Lowe’s policy is to give price adjustments to customers for 30 days after the purchase date. 

To get a price adjustment, just bring your original receipt with you to the Lowe’s store at which you made your purchase and talk to a store associate. Let them know the situation and ask if you can get a price adjustment. If everything is in order, you will be refunded the difference in price.

Tips for Saving on Lowe’s Purchases

There are a few tips you can keep in mind to save money when shopping at Lowe’s. First, always keep an eye out for coupons or promo codes, both when buying in-store and online. Digital coupons as well as physical coupons and offers you get in the mail can sometimes offer great deals, and you may be able to use print offers from local retailers for price matching. When buying online, always check for promo codes through one of the many popular browser extensions available to ensure you’re paying the lowest possible price.

Lowe’s associates are often allowed to offer discounts on certain items, so negotiating slightly for a floor model or an item with a damaged box may be a great way to save.

Lowe’s sometimes offers deals to people buying in bulk. If you need a large amount of a certain item, look for products with the label “contractor pack” and talk to a store employee about the possibility of a bulk discount. 

Some credit cards may offer increased cash back on purchases at certain stores. When shopping at Lowe’s, using the Lowe’s Advantage Card allows you to save 5% on most purchases.

Final Take

Knowing the details about Lowe’s price match policy can help you save big when buying tools or materials for your next project. Next time you want to buy something at Lowe’s, take a quick look at offers from retail and online competitors. You may be able to get a great deal through price matching. If you’re buying in bulk, don’t forget to ask a store associate about bulk discounts.
