So, I used to work at Lowes in Calgary, the scratch and save cards would come in to customer service in a box, and every winner was separated into groups based on how much discount there was. Employees and managers would all steal the top prize cards and keep them for themselves or family. I watched this happen three times.

Suffice to say, your odds of actually winning big suck, and are technically impossible.

makes sense, as I have never seen anything above the minimum.

well, dont get me wrong, even if they weren't taken out of the pool the odds were terrible. There would be maybe 5 top prizes ($100 off) and about 2000 other cards of various prizes, 1750 of which were minimum. your odds of winning anything other than the base prize is extremely low.

Did you put in an anonymous complaint to head office. Since you no longer work there they can't fire you.

Managers warned employees about people doing that, it wont work for long if at all, and as I said before your odds of getting anything but the lowest prize are extremely low.

Doesn't matter anyways, because whenever I order stuff at Lowes for pick up, it's cancelled. FFFFFFFF

Or do what I do. Shop at Home Depot where its cheaper, and save money anyways lol. They also sometimes pricematch 10% off sales that Lowes/Rona has.

I'm here thinking it's always the lowest % discount. No one ever gets 100% or maybe 1 in 1000000 scratch card

They clearly don't care if they send the cards marked for the store employees to sort themselves. I can't think of a dumber way of doing it. Why don't they just give them a stack of unmarked scratchers where the discount is unknown?

Too bad Weber is never included
Weber makes dealers sign agreements to not sell for less than their designated lowest price.

In the past it used to work but Weber apparently hires a 3rd party to scour around looking for companies not complying with their rules. Now it's harder to get a discount on non-clearance Weber BBQs.

Anyway you can still try. It occasionally works if staff programs the exclusions incorrectly. I recently grabbed a Q1200.
