How To Activate A MyLowes Card

The purpose of a MyLowes card shouldn't be confused with a Lowe's credit card.

A MyLowes card is meant for the simple purpose of keeping your transactions organized. This is why it's important to activate the card once you receive it.

A MyLowes card will not help you gain or access credit with Lowe's, but it will make shopping less strenuous. For example, if you've ever had a transaction slip your mind and needed to reference your records, then having a MyLowes card can be beneficial.

You will need to first create an account on the Lowe's website. Once you have the account completed, you can request to have a MyLowes card sent to your address by going to your profile.

Once you receive the card, you will need to register it on your account for it to track your transactions. When you have the card registered, you can use it for any online or retail purchases.

In addition, you can use the card to make different lists to keep yourself organized. For example, if you are doing a bathroom remodel, you can organize every purchase for the remodel into a category.

This will help you stay within your remodeling budget and use tax writeoffs if applicable.
