Lately, the Georgia Department of Veterans Service has been receiving phone calls and emails regarding The Home Depot’s veteran discount policy. Because of this we have followed up with HD’s Corporate Communications and External Affairs. The email message that follows is The Home Depot’s explanation.
From: Stephen Holmes (Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, The Home Depot)
To: Zeringue, Brian
Subject: Home Depot's Veteran/Military Discount Policy
Here is “The Home Depot’s” veteran/military discount policy, along with the type of IDs needed to verify eligibility.
All military personnel and veterans are eligible for a 10% discount at all The Home Depot store locations during national holidays such as Memorial Day, July 4th and Veterans Day.
Additionally, the 10% discount is available to active and reserve military personnel, retired or disabled veterans and their spouses or dependent children, every day, upon request.
To receive the everyday discount, we ask customers to present one of the following IDs to verify eligibility:
· Common Access Card (CAC is a standard identification card issued to active duty and reserve personnel)
· United States Uniformed Services Privilege and Identification Card:
o Tan - Dependent of active duty member or retiree
o Red - Retired reservist and reservist dependent
o Blue - Retiree
· A VA Medical Center “Veteran Identification Card” (it MUST state “Service Connected”)
The maximum for both 10% discounts is $500 on a single-receipt purchase at The Home Depot U.S. stores only and cannot be applied to installation products or services, Gift Cards, special buy appliances or in addition to any other offers. The discount is not available for online purchases.
PLEASE NOTE: Stephen Holmes, Senior Manager, HD Corporate Communications, recommends for more information, further questions, or concerns about The Home Depot’s veteran/military discount policy call 1-800-HOMEDEPOT or email Information@HomeDepot.com .
