.toLowerCase() on prompt?

Guil is showing multiple ways to return a user's search as lowercase. I added the method to my initial prompt() call and had no issues.

const search = prompt('Search for a product.').toLowerCase();

Is this a valid way of calling the method? Or would the following example be best practice?

const search = prompt('Search for a product.');
searchText = search.toLowerCase();

The more compact first form would be fine unless there might be a reason to refer to the original response later in the code. In that case, the 2nd form would be preferable.
