I'm not sure. I recently made a purchase and the category is listed as "HOME SUPPLY WAREHOUSE STORES". Lowe's is explicitly listed on the Discover terms, but they may classify online differently. Especially since I picked up in-store, I'll definitely call them if it doesn't credit at 5%

Thanks for responding. Can you check it for me?


You can check if a transaction qualifies before statement close.

On the right column, under "REWARDS", click the "Activated" link.

Click "See Offer Details and Transactions".
See the transactions under "Qualified Transactions".


Another way is to use the direct link to the page here:

Well, you learn something new every day!

So, there's more info available on my PC than on the app. On there, it shows the category as "Home Improvement" in the transaction list and only shows the warehouse bit when you select the transaction. It does also show up under the "Qualified Transactions".

However, one interesting thing to note that may be important - in the list, it shows the merchant as the local store where I picked up the order. When I click on it for more info, it then shows "Lowe's NC Internet". So, it looks like the transaction is tied to the local retail store in some way. If you are trying to get an order shipped, I'm not sure if it will qualify. If you're like me and are just buying online to use a coupon code and then picking up in-store, you should be good.
