Unfortunately I did not find your book in time for that house but we have it for the next one. It is a great book, full of useful information. Lots of it seems like common sense after you read it, but I did not have the common sense to think of it before I read it.

Hey all... if you go to lowesmoving.com and register, they will send you a coupon via email for 10% of your purchase of up to $5,000... so you can save $500.

Jim,

Thank you for sharing this information. I just went on the Lowe's site and requested my coupon. I also by suggestion of another poster went on eBay and bought two Lowe's 10% coupons. I paid $3.98 for both, which included shipping. They were good for 10% off up to $10K; I took them to HD and they approved us using them both at their store. If I had only known about this trick early on in the build I could have saved several thousand.

Another saving technique I use is looking for rebates at HD. We have received gift cards for insulation, HardiBoard, cabinets, and this weekend, paint - which also has gift card offers.

Lori:

    How do those gift card/rebates work, and how did they come to you?

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

The Lowe's coupon that Jim suggested was sent to me via email today and I printed it on our printer. It is 10% and worth up to a $500 discount. The other Lowe's coupons I purchased on eBay were sent to me via U.S. Mail.

The gift cards at Home Depot I saw signs in the store for them. I then went on-line to Homedepot.com, clicked promotions then rebate center, and I found others on line that were not advertised in the store. These gift cards were also sent to me in the mail.

Lori

Lowe's will honor Home Depot coupons, and Home Depot will honor Lowe's coupons. Those email coupons you get from Lowe's have a barcode on them and are usable one time, at which time the coupon is rendered useless. However if you happen to print a dozen of them out, Home Depot will still accept them as they have no way to register in their system that the specific Lowe's coupon has already been used once. Just an easy way to get some economy of scale out of a single coupon.

The coupons are so easy to come by, you should never shop for anything at those stores without one. The downside is you don't get to use the self checkout, but buying building supplies how often do you use this convenience anyway?

Hi. This is a good thread.

I have a question. I have heard that if you register at Home Depot for a builders account that you get a 10% discount on everything. If you have a builders account, do they honor coupons like this, thus having the ability to get 20% off? Thanks.

Matt
