    Registration closed 🙁 I’ve tried several times and when it finally said opened, it lead me through different links then it said registration closed 🙁 no luck on computer or mobile device

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Have you been able to check to see if you could register at another nearby location? Hoping that might be helpful!

    • Kevin Lindsey

      Same, I never saw any local store available and now it says closed

      • Tara Zychowicz

        Registration closed, Durham, NC, darn!

    • Michelle

      Same thing here. 😕

  2. Nini7

    Tried several times and closed when I could finally get through and want let you register for a different week yet.

  3. Sarah

    Has anyone been able to get this? What time did registration begin. I checked my entire state practically and it is closed.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Sarah! Many have been able to register. I did get through around lunchtime. If registration is closed at one location, be sure to try for another nearby store. Hoping that helps!

    • KKStanley

      This garden registration is beginning to feel a little like the Covid vaccine scheduling in some weird way🤔 Apparently I don’t like the feeling of rejection😩😂

  4. Erin mi

    Darn. Finally got the link to work and registration was closed for my store.

  5. Angie

    I was able to register maybe they only allow so many per location???

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It does seem that there are a limited number per location.

  6. linda Castellan

    I tryed all morning and the site was down I’m very upset.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Maybe check again in a different browser or device. You may also have luck trying a different location. Hoping this helps!

  7. D ADAM

    Worked for me first time

  8. Jami627

    I was just able to finally get on and registered. It wasn’t working this morning, but it is now. 😊

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m so glad to hear that! Thanks for letting us know, Jami627!

  9. Joy

    I tried bright and early at 6 am, no luck. But then later I tried, around 11 am and got in! I’m so excited to get my garden kit!

  10. Theresa Forge

    just registered. Iy was very simple! Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome!

  11. Jan

    Site was down and now registration is closed… bummer but cool idea!

  12. Lynn

    What a joke for registration. I’ve been trying all morning. Now it’s closed. I even called the store about the system crashed.

  13. Amy

    Tried since 6am pacific time this morning. For several hours it said the system was down. Then it finally had the registration link. Except when you click it, it takes you back to the front page and says registration closed.

    • Janet Myers

      Registering for the to go garden kits

  14. Mrs. Ferreira

    If registration says closed, change your location to next nearest store until you find one open. Good luck everyone and thanks for the post Hip2Save!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome! Thanks for the helpful tip!

  15. Katrina

    Closed at all 5 in my area 🙁

  16. aliciafrenchowens

    I just registered! One store registration was closed but store closer to me was open!

    • acgold

      We tried 10 stores in 3 different states near where we and my sister live (NY,NJ, Pa). They are the only ones we could get to on Thurs. between 5-7PM. When we finally got through all closed registration. Lowe’s told us only 60 registrations per store.

      • Joni

        What’s so great about this that you are willing to travel to three different states?

  17. Penny

    It looks like they are opening the registration about a week before each give a way. It says to come back to register and gives a specific date for each session.

  18. Jess

    Lowe’s crashed the internet. I tried several times today, and when it finally allowed me through all the stores registrations were closed.

    • Terra

      Same for me. Tried all day.

    • painteddreams13


  19. Mp

    Registration closed at all locations in my city

  20. Teresa A Nemecek

    It said I got it. Will they send an email with verification? Do you just drive up and get it on the 8th?

    • Nic

      They will send you a confirmation email with the details.

  21. Robbi Strother

    Registration closed in Erwin, NC

  22. Shanice

    Same here! Tried all day and couldn’t get through and when I finally did, registration was closed. I spoke to a guy at one location about the site. He took my name and number to call me back, and he tells me registration is on the 10th and it’s for the first 200 people, when I was under the assumption that it was today! I’m so confused!

    • Kathy

      They are doing these next couple weeks so next is coming on April 7th I think. I couldn’t get to register either but will try next Thursday.

  23. Vincent Andrade

    Good April Fool’s joke. Tried to sign up but web site was down. Called Lowes and they said that I’d just have to wait till the site was back up. Tried to go back in and guess what, registration was closed. Like I said good April Fool’s joke.

  24. Esther

    Tried in the morning a million times the site keeps saying it’s busy or in maintenance. Went out for grocery shopping and came back it says registration closed.

  25. Nancy

    I can’t find where to enter so I can win anything. Wasting my valuable time trying to find out where to enter my info. So frustrating.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Nancy! You’ll click through the link above, then scroll down to click on “Register Now”. If you scroll down again you can look to the right to be sure your location has been selected. Then scroll down a bit more to see the event. The registration at your store may be closed now, as they have a limited amount per region, however be sure to check back again next week for the next offer! Hope this helps!

  26. cath

    for next weeks: Registration for this event will open Thu, April 8, 2021 at 12 a.m. EST.Please check back then to claim your spot.

  27. Bob

    Rip-off…. They give a big media promo and then don’t have enough supply to come close to meeting demand. If you can’t handle the quantity, don’t offer the freebie!! Always thought Lowe’s had their act together…. Guess not….

  28. Suszy P

    Yay! So excited that I am registered for the piñata!!

  29. April Collar

    Registering for to go garden kit

  30. Judy Bigelow

    went on line to register for give away program when told you could start to register. the sign up said closed out.
    I think this is a big joke and don’t appreciate following your schedule and being told I can’t register. You should treat your customers differently.


    it says EST but every time I try for any of them it say closed i live in Ca what about us Lows

  32. Renee

    It said I’m registered for the free tree/sapling. But I got no confirmation email or anything?? I was logged into my Lowe’s account. Anyone know if we’re supposed to get an email after we register?? My Lowe’s is not organized and usually acts like they don’t know anything about these types of events so I want something in print to bring with me!

  33. Shanice Grundy

    I didn’t get an email either. I just screen shotted my registration confirmation and used it to show them whenever I went to Lowe’s to pick up my piñata kit today. They just asked me for my name and to see the picture of the registration confirmation so they could make sure I was indeed registered! Hope this helps!
