Let me start by saying I'm not a Lowes employee, just found this out when I was shopping there this weekend and thought it worth the share. For anyone buying materials from Lowes, they actually have a deal right now - if you purchase a gift card (they are calling them Tax Refund cards) before March 14th, they will credit the card with 10% of the purchase price on March 18th. Card amounts can be anything from $500-$4000. So if you know you're going to be spending a chunk there (I'll be building a shed this month), it's worth the purchase! I prepaid for $500 and will get $550 to spend!! Just DON'T loose the card!
