Senior Citizen Deal for us in the Golden Years

My first day with some time in three months! You know what I am going to do today and tomorrow? Sleep? Rest? Computer? No - something much more fun for me and something so needed! I am going to clean my house from summer -it is a mess and it will make Chatty very happy.

Not to give you a gift today - here is something most of us can use and someday all of us!

Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice to men and women over 55 is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for you buck.

Sandra said...

that is a lot of discounts, some i knew, some not. I have never gotten a senior discount at Wendy's, and we go there once a month. most every store here in FL has a senior discount, but there are a few here that I have not gotten

Granny Annie said...

Do they tell you about these discounts are do you have to ask? Thanks for this information.'

Also, your "coincidence" quote would have been great on my August 1st question of the week! It's an excellent explanation of what a coincidence is.

TexWisGirl said...

oh, have fun with your cleaning therapy... my house needs it so bad that i'm seriously considering hiring someone... :)

Knitty said...

I cleaned last week. Does this mean I am done until the holidays?

Thanks for the discount list. I will share that with my buddies. :)

Changes in the wind said...

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Good Job Sandie! Great list! I know about some and I tell ya, My Mom always asks for a Sr Discount and gets it most of the time! Hey why not, getting older must have some perks! Enjoy your day my friend.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Flora said...

Now where did you get all that neat info?! Good to know.

Life is good! said...

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

Wow, I didn't realize there were so many out there. I'm already old, I might as well get something for it, right?

My husband is 5 years younger than me so He's been giving me up for awhile now. Now he qualifies for some himself.

Cheri said...

I had to save this because I now just if I can only remember to check my sheet before I go some where and to also ask.

Sally said...

Great list, Sandie. Like some others I knew about a few but not all. And, I was just in Kohl's this weekend, and forgot about it! DUH

I'm taking one room at the time spring cleaning in August. LOL

Have a great day.


Thisisme. said...

It does make you feel good when the house has been cleaned through, doesn't it?! That was quite a list of discounts you came up with there for us older gals!!

The Boston Lady said...

Go for it girl. And enjoy your first day of "school". Ann

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Thanks for this info, I did not know that Kmart would give me a discount at 51! I love the clean house after the work...

Ann said...

Discounts. I love discounts. Some of those I'll even be eligible for next year when I turn the big five o

Pat MacKenzie said...

It's great to know about these. Thanks for sharing. My 61 year old husband is always offered the seniors discount - since he was in his late 40's! I just tell him that if it's offered, take it. Of course, he qualifies now! And so do I.

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Thanks for the great info!

Elaine said...

Lots of info--thanks. I always ask for a senior drink when I go to McDonalds or Burger King.

Debbie said...

Very cool. I'll bet my mom copies these down. I can't wait to ask her if she did.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

There are some really good Senior Citizen discounts on the list...Now all I have to hope for is that the workers in each place is aware of them when I ask for them! :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, GREAT list. Think I'll print it out... I knew about some of these but not all.. I know that places like Wendy's (and others) don't automatically give discounts. You have to ask for them..

Our KFC is good, so is Hardee's, and our Kroger's offers 5% every Wed. Didn't know that about Food Lion. Thanks so much.

Shanda said...

Can I rejoice that I have one year left before I can use these coupons??

Sweet Tea said...

Hey, if cleaning house makes you that happy please come right over and have yourself a happy time at my place. I love a clean house but hate that it gets dirty again so quickly.

Sush said...

Going to copy and paste and print that list RIGHT NOW! Thanks and hugs~

Jo said...

Kroger: 10% off (date varies by location)I try and go on Wednesday round these parts.I do love my 10%

Sharon said...

You know, for the very first time you have made me glad to be 57, and actually looking forward to 60!

It's a miracle.

Have fun cleaning (and thanks for making me feel guilty about my messy house...)

LOVE those God winks!!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Some just automatically give me the discount, but by looking at that list there are quite a few that don't even mention it. I realize they don't want to offend anyone, but I wouldn't be offended! I'll have to get one of those shirts that say, "Give me my Senior Citizen discount!"
