Senior Citizen Discounts

Many of us on here are "Grey Eagles" and with age comes "The Rites Of Passage" - Senior Citizen Discounts!!!
It's amazing how many Discounts are out there but in many cases, YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR THEM!
If you don't ask, you won't get them.

    Think about it------
    1 visit to Waffle House per week.
    Average check $10.00
    Discount @10% 1.00
    52 weeks a year savings $52.00
    (A nice down payment on a Coach Purse for the Bride!!!)

    That is misinformation.  The only discount that Food Lion offers is in North Carolina and the seniors do not have to pay the sales tax of 6 percent on Mondays..............................So don't bother selling your house and moving.

    Continental Airlines no longer exists.  It merged with United in 2010.
     
    Do we know how current this list is?

    My check at Waffle House is either $4.25 or $6.45. But I only visit six or seven times a week.

    A 6% discount is the same thing as not having to pay the 6% sales tax. What your original list says is 60% discount every Monday for seniors at Food Lion. Which I'm sure was a typo, but still...

    I didn't create the list, just copied it.
    Don't know how old it is but every place I've asked for the discounts, I've gotten them.
    And yeh, that's probably a typo.

    Foodbme, thanks for the list.  I do discounts, so I can use it. 
     
    My first introduction to a senior discount was a few years ago at Hardee's when they still had good food and coffee.  The teenage cashier charged me only 10 cents for the coffee, and I inquired if it was a mistake.  She smiled and pointed out that it was a senior citizen discount.  I was 40.

    The best deal going for me is the National Parks Golden Age lifetime pass for$10. I can easily save $200 or more at national parks and camping every time we head out west.

    Foodbme .....
    Kmart:  40% off (Wednesdays only) (50+)
    .....
    There seems to be a lot of posts on the web that Kmart has no senior discount, or if they do, it's a pharmacy discount only (20% per one site) and there is some card one needs to get.
     
    40% would be a great discount.
     
    And I agree with Greymo, why wouldn't one take the discount?

    The only one of these places I actually patronize is Great Clips for haircuts. Here in NJ they charge a flat $10 for Seniors, but they will honor their regular haircut coupons if that brings the price to lower than $10.
     
    People should also check their State Parks if you like the outdoors. Over 62 in NJ and you get an ID good for free admission to all State Parks.

    Many racetracks offer the discount - the age where they consider you "senior" varies, but I do know I got a dollar off last time for general admission when we went to Food Truck Wars at Monmouth Park here in New Jersey. I definitely will ask if it's not posted or I don't know from the internet in advance, now that I'm in the 60 Club.

    I think the reason a lot of places don't automatically give it any more is because people get offended at being called "old" rather than being happy they got a discount. My mother was like that; used to lecture them on assuming if they even asked if she was eligible for the senior discount. But I do remember it being automatically given years ago when we'd be out with my grandparents.

    Meijer  used to give 5% senior discount on Wednesdays I believe - I had no clue about it til one day a checkout clerk gave me the discount without saying a word and I noticed it on the receipt and asked her about it and she explained and I thanked her profusely - sadly they no longer give senior discounts and instead offer all kinds of promotions and savings to everyone.    (They tell me everyone needs help nowadays not just us old folks.. hmmmmmmmmm)
