Lowes is our favorite home improvement store. I swear I cannot get out of there without spending $100.
It was an amazing day when I figured out how to get free Lowes gift cards. When I say “free”, I really mean getting gift cards for doing things I was already doing or with almost no effort.
With that in mind, here are the ways to score some free gift cards to Lowe’s.
Ways to Get Free Lowe’s Gift Cards
I don’t know anyone who isn’t using online shopping these days. Even my mother, who may be one of the most tech-averse people on the planet, buys items off of Amazon and Walmart.com.
If you are shopping online, then why not take advantage of online rebates? These cashback websites pay you a rebate when you use their portal to visit your favorite online retailers.
Instead of going directly to your favorite online store, go to the cashback site first and click on their link to your favorite store. Shop as usual and get rebates from 1% to 25% cashback. Lowe’s is usually about 2%.
The top sites I use are:
While you can still clip coupons from the weekly newspaper and by printing them on your computer, it is much easier to use grocery rebates from coupon apps.
These apps allow you to select rebates on your phone before or as you are shopping. You can sync the app with your customer loyalty cards or, once you make the purchase, you can scan your receipt into the app.
This is one of the easier ways to score free Lowe’s gift cards because the change in your routine is so minimal. The top grocery coupon apps are:
GetUpside makes gasoline rebates one of the easiest ways to get free gift cards. Instead of filling up at the station closest to you, or which has the lowest price, you check out gas stations that partner with the app.
When you find the station with the lowest price after rebate, you claim that offer. After you fill up, you scan in your receipt and the rebate is credited to your GetUpside account.
You can cash out to a variety of different gift cards, including Lowe’s. The rebates tend to range between 5¢ and 25¢ per gallon, but I have seen them as low as 1¢ and as high as 30¢. My GetUpside review details everything you need to know about the app.
Most big retail stores will run promotions from time to time that give you gift cards for making certain purchases, and Lowe’s is no exception.
When we moved into our current home, it needed all new appliances. So we found a deal at Lowe’s where all the appliances we needed were on sale, and you got an increasing number of Lowe’s gift cards the more appliances you purchased.
We ended up getting more than $3,000 worth of appliances for just over $2,000, and we got $600 in Lowe’s gift cards as a rebate. Keep your eyes open for promotions like this to get big-time free gift cards to Lowe’s.
Watching Online Videos
I can remember thinking that nobody is going to pay me to watch videos, but some rewards sites will pay you for doing just that.
The videos are not going to be the most entertaining and are geared toward getting you to buy things. Still, I can roll through these videos on my computer while watching more entertaining content on my television. It’s not a lot, but you can watch videos for gift cards from these sites:
Getting paid to read emails has been around for more than 20 years. Which means I have been doing it for more than 20 years.
The rewards are not a lot, but it is something you can do while binge-watching another show on Netflix or Disney+. Some top sites that pay you to read email are:
I grew up in the 80s and 90s, so video games were a part of life. Learning that I could get rewarded for playing video games seemed like something right in my wheelhouse.
With most programs, you get rewards for each dollar you spend inside of a game, but there are always a few games in each program that pay you just for playing. Just be aware of the rules for getting paid, and you can earn a few free Lowe’s gift cards for having a little fun.
The top get paid for gaming sites are:
Cashback Credit Cards
I am not a big fan of credit cards unless they are going to pay me for using them. Most rewards credit cards allow you to cash out to gift cards or an account credit.
The best way to earn with these cards is to get one that specializes in a specific type of spending you do a lot. For example, we have one card that gives 5% cash back on gasoline purchases and another that gives 2% cashback on everything.
We use the gas card when filling up and the other card for everything else. This maximizes our cashback and keeps the free gift cards flowing.
Taking paid surveys requires a little more effort than most of the other times on this list, but they can pay anywhere from $0.50 to $50 each, so they are a good source of gift card money. Every one of the paid survey sites I frequent has the option to cash out to Lowe’s, making this an easy way to earn more gift cards.
The top paid survey apps include:
Stack Your Earnings
Each one of the above ideas can create a nice stream of gift cards to Lowes. However, to get the most out of your gift card earning time, you need to stack the rewards as much as you can.
In the example above, where I purchased my appliances and got $600 in Lowe’s gift cards, I also made the purchase online using TopCashBack, which gave me 2% cashback for my purchase. I also used my 2% cash back rewards credit card.
If I spent $2,000 out of pocket, that is another $80 in gift cards I pocketed with almost no effort.
The same goes for when I get gasoline. I use my gas rewards card to pay for the gas and get 5% cashback. Yesterday, I claimed a 20¢ per gallon rebate with GetUpside for gasoline that $1.49 per gallon and filled up with 20 gallons.
If you do that math that comes out to $4.00 from GetUpside and $1.49 to my rewards card balance. Not a bad haul for $29.98 in gasoline.
Keep stacking your rebates and cashback, and you will generate more gift cards than you thought possible.

I love getting free things. Many times I will take something free even if I do not need it because I am sure I can find some use for it.
