Lowes prices are almost always more than double Home Depot, so I always shop Lowes

Lowes has a price beat policy.
Lowes prices are almost always more then double Home Depot price
So I take the Home Depot SKUS for the items I want to Lowes and get everything for less than Home Depot price
They have to fill out a form including a screen shot of the Home Depot item.
So basically I am contracting market research services to Lowes
I have never seen them lower a price as a result, so not sure why they need that data, but I am happy to work for them at the rate they are paying

Example:

If my calculations are correct, you went to Lowes and went through the trouble to save $0.06? (0.63 * 0.1 = 0.06)

Okay.

Lowes and Home Depot mostly carry different brands though

Lowes prices, if they have the exact same product, may be a bit higher than Home Depot but I’ve never seen prices to be double. Personally for me the difference has usually not been that much to make it worthwhile to go through price match. So, I’d rather give my business to HD which took the initiative to have a lower price.

There's also the possibility that he only intended on buying one as well. Face With Tears Of Joy

You do have a point though. If he/she was planning on buying these items in bulk, then I could see the advantage of saving $0.06 on all of them assuming if they are saving a considerable amount of money on them.

I can't imagine shopping from Lowe's regularly. The one near me takes no less than half an hour any time I need to speak with customer service, including store pickup. I very rarely bother with pricematches elsewhere, though, so maybe OP has more patience than I do.
Nobody cares which exploitative corporations you give your money to every month. Get that crap out of your signature.

Even so, on a purchase of 1000 pieces, that's still only $60 in savings. OP definitely has a lot of time on his hands

63 dollars savings is not little. You can easily save a lot when you save 10 dollars here 20 dollars there. It's better than most credit card rewards programs
