Lowes tracks purchases with the card you used to purchase the item, so I do not think they will. I have lost receipts before and they can view all purchases with my Visa. How can you be sure it came from Lowes?

From lowes.ca:

"For returns without valid receipts:
In most instances, your receipt can be retrieved by using the original credit card, chequing account number, or by your phone number.
In-store credit may be issued for the item’s current selling price.

Lowe’s reserves the right to refuse and limit the number of returns permitted without valid receipts."

If it's a current item, and now being sold, it shouldn't be a problem to get it back on a gift card. If it's one that's no longer being sold and was from last summer, I can see them not being that happy about it. You'll just have to ask them, as it would be a grey area in that case.

Just tell them you received it as a gift and you have no use for it. If they are currently selling it in store you will have no problem
