Cobb County-headquartered international home improvement retail giant The Home Depot announced in a press release that it will offer an everyday military discount benefit to include all U.S. veterans, active service members and spouses.

The company explained the discount as follows:

U.S. veterans, active service members and spouses who pre-register for the benefit via The Home Depot app will receive a 10 percent discount on their purchases in stores and online. Registering through the customer app not only expands the discount to online purchases beyond the stores’ aisles, but also makes it faster and easier for customers to check out when utilizing the discount benefit.

“We’re proud to expand this Military Discount Benefit for families who have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Ted Decker, president and COO of The Home Depot in the press release. “From our product discount to The Home Depot Foundation’s commitment to veteran causes, our dedication to our servicemen and women has never been stronger.”

  1. Too bad The Home Depot requires Veterans to upload service documents online, while Lowe’s allows us to register with their in store customer service. I don’t have a scanner so I won’t be using Home Depot any longer.

  2. More like too bad they completely gutted the program and only allows up to $400 total savings per year and have removed many products from the discount program. Perfect example of corporate greed crap covered to look like its a good thing.Lowes has no cap!!!

  3. They are your typical corporate greed companies. They manipulated their words to act as if they were doing a good service for vets to just gut the program. Terrible. Will be shopping at Lowes now for sure. Not going to home Depot in the foreseeable future.
