Gift card marketplaces such as Cardpool.com and Raise.com sell discounted gift cards for both Lowe’s and Home Depot.

For example, when this article was written, Lowe’s gift cards could be purchased for up to 5.5 percent off their face value on Cardpool and up to 2.5 percent off at Raise. So, buying one of those cards at Cardpool and using it at Lowe’s would effectively save you more than 5 percent extra on your purchase.
