I found an older post on Reddit about this. Does anyone work there or ever asked for this?

The best way to find a deal at Lowes!!

Markdown Report – This is the holy grail of finding deals at Lowes. Once a week (usually on Thursdays) the markdown report will go "live". Most of the items start off discounted 25% off, but I've bought nice items (like a Dewalt power tool set for $56, cases of Gatorade for $.80) at 75% or even 90% off.

Here's how to get it. Ask one of the persons at the commercial sales desk to print you off a copy (you might need to buddy/buddy them before hand). They might not even know what the report is or how to print it. Tell him to go to the main Genesis screen and do a 5.11.12. This should put them on the markdown screen. They then need to click on Level 4, level 5, active markdown – then select "all". It will take a few minutes but the report will be in the print spool for the associate to print off. The report will come off per department and will show the last "regular" price and the new markdown price. Disregard any product that has only a quantity of 1 or 2 – those could have been store use, stolen or miscounted. I like to put the item number in Google (i.e. " Lowes item 877833) to find the item because since Lowes is no longer stocking the item it will not be able to be found on the website directly (Lowes does have free WiFi). Many times the items are in top stock (since they've been discontinued they no longer have a spot on the shelf) so talk to someone in the department for help locating the items (they may take advantage of the sale).

The markdown report would be virtually impossible to get as a non employee, like the penny report at home Depot. Only select employees in the store can access it, that and creative ones...

Verifying that it does work.
I've been given it to look at but not to keep (along with an anytime offer).
