I have an Angie's List account which is free, because the service is not available in my area. I logged in and the deal came up as $5 for me. Ordered one, got a receipt indicating that they would mail me the GC. Thanks OP!
I got a coupon code, don't see any option to have it mailed to me. I assume this means it is only valid for Lowe's online. Will update if I can use the code to buy a real gift card from Lowes.com and have it shipped to me.

I didn't notice until after I asked the question, but from the order page:

Potentially a good deal, and potentially a big letdown if a membership is required.
OP, you've been on FW since 2003. You should know how to post properly. The subject line should have more info (Angie's List, membership required?, YMMV, etc.).
The truth hurts? Any of you read the posting guidelines? Nobody likes correction, even when given reasonably. Yep, the deal is dead, and more idiots keep showing up. You can't swing a virtual cat around here without hitting one.
I'm sorry you still can't seem to grasp this all, Ben. I'm only "peeved" about my first post, in which everything I said was absolutely right. Nobody legitimately called me on anything there. Again, I've repeatedly admitted, I was nothing but sarcastic and irreverent from that point on. Of course I expected red then! I'm apparently the only one here that sees all the ensuing irony. But if any of my detractors really wanted to be honest, they'd at least agree I have a valid point about how to post threads, but this is what you get in an online forum. "Apply for the position" is becoming a bit of a cliche.
One last tidbit for you: Text In other words, you've made your point, Ben. I don't think either of us is going to convince/win over the other. But you sure seem to be enjoying coming back at me again and again despite it being such a waste of time.
