With the loss of the Renovopower Lowes coupon code generator (http://renovopower.com/lowes.html), I spent a few hours looking at a bunch of valid codes and figured out the algorithm for the current batch of $10 off $50 and 10% off codes.
But...is it legal (ethical?) to release the algorithm? Or set up a web page that generates codes, but not actually release the algorithm.
There are lots of websites that generate Lowe's coupon codes. We don't allow them here because of the ethics question. However, those websites are still very much up and running, so take that for what you will.
