Many companies show their appreciation for current and former members of the military by offering special sales around holidays — like Veterans Day, Memorial Day or Independence Day — to remember those who served.
But some retailers — like Home Depot — go above and beyond, honoring veterans and active duty military members every day with an in-store discount while also giving back to those who served through both its foundation and volunteer program called Team Depot.
Home Depot makes it easy for veterans to save money with a 10% off discount, but since that deal has a few restrictions, we’ve put together a few other ways to get 10% off. Let’s take a look at the policy and some of the savings available at Home Depot.
10% Discount for Veterans Available in Stores
Home Depot offers two ways for those who have served to save in its stores with dedicated discounts. One is an everyday 10% discount on purchases up to $500 for any current members of the military or retired veterans.
The other is a 10% discount for anyone who has served regardless of current status (active, retired, etc.), around major holidays like Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July. All you need to do is present a military ID or other proof of veterans status at checkout to receive the savings.
The discount for veterans doesn’t apply to online purchases, and the policy also has restrictions about combining the discount with other sales or promotions, so it is always a good idea to see if a better deal is out there — especially if you want to shop online.
Save 10% or More Online with Promo Codes
Since the Home Depot veteran discount only applies to in-store purchases, those who prefer the convenience of online shopping may need to find another way to get the best price.
At DealCrunch, we have a proprietary coupon engine that searches the web for the most updated deals, delivering them directly to our feed. And our coupon codes can easily save you 10% or more on your next purchase at Home Depot.
Here are today’s best deals at HomeDepot.com:

Search the Weekly Ad for Current Sales & Discounts
To see what Home Depot’s most current deals are, you can browse the store’s weekly ad. While you might not be able to stack a veterans discount on top of a sale or promotion, some of the savings could still be worth it.
The online version of your local weekly ad allows you to click on each product for easy online ordering. Home Depot’s weekly ad is also a great place to look for huge sales year-round whether it is Father’s Day, Labor Day, or Black Friday, the store always seems to have an occasion to drop prices.
Quick tip: If you aren’t the kind of person who remembers to check sales ads every week to look for deals, just sign up for Home Depot email and text alerts. That way, the best offers can be sent directly to your inbox or mobile device.
Veterans Save 10% at Home Depot
While some stores only offer discounts for current and former service members a handful of times each year, Home Depot honors veterans year-round with its discounts.
If you’re active duty or a retired veteran, just show your military ID to get 10% off your next in-store purchase. Or you could head over to our Home Depot page and see if you can save more than 10% online where the veterans discount doesn’t apply.
But whether it is in-store or online, you are going to have a great deal in hand, so you can shop with confidence for whatever you need — or want — from Home Depot.
