- 10/10/19 - Lowe's 7% Discount Now Available. Purchasing Services has negotiated with Lowe's a new 7% in-store discount for UVM purchases. Purchasers will use a key fob at the time of purchase to receive the discount. High-volume users will be provided with a departmental fob. Fobs are also available for single use and can be signed out for a 2-hour block through the Purchasing Services office or the Disbursement Center. This offer is available at both the Essex and South Burlington locations. At the Lowe’s checkout, scan the fob, provide UVM’s Account # 802-656-3131 for tax exemption to the cashier and use your PurCard to maximize UVM's purchasing power - which impacts future discounts and benefits.
