Where Do You Get Senior Discounts?

I was surprised to learn of some business's that give senior citizens discounts. Quite often, all you need to do is ask. I only know of a couple though, does anyone want to share with me where they usually get senior citizens discounts? The pharmacy I go to is one I know of, and a grocery store gives seniors a discount on tuesdays, where i live (10%). There are probably a lot more. I even heard of a fast food chain that does, but I haven't checked it out to know for sure. Thanks for all replies!

Krogers grocery store gives their plus card with a 10% discount to seniors everyday, even sale items on all Kroger products. I save a bundle. The Dress Barn gives 10% on Tuesdays.

I am 60. I've found that you need to ask what the age might be for the senior discount. Different grocery stores have different ages.

Long John Silvers seafood is one reastaurant that has a discount for seniors..

The best discount, I hear, is at the senior center where you can get a meal for not much money. Also, ours here in PA give coupons for $20 worth of produce at the farmer's market.

Dont be afraid to ask. I recently learned that Rite Aid has senior discount (age 60) on Tuesdays. It is 10% off anything you buy.

Best of luck

McDonald's has a reduced price for coffee for seniors. Bob Evans, Denny's, and Ponderosa have a senior discount or reduced prices (for reduced portion size). Some are effective at age 50, others age 55. State Parks also have a Golden Passport. You might check with AARP for other discounts.

My husband always gets Senior discount at McDonalds, he is 48.
I get a discount at Goodies Dept. store on Wednesdays, and I will be 50 in June.

At age 61 I don't feel old either but eagerly seek and use all the senior discounts I can. So far I use these:
Wendy's
Golden Corral
Ponderosa
Bob Evans ~ senior menu
Kroger 5% on Tuesday
One of our banks has a senior program providing free checking and the checks as well. Each bank varies in what it offers.
We will use the senior discount a La Quinta hotel in CA this week for the first time.
Our county offers a property tax discount at age 65 as well.

Check with your pharmacy and car repair/maintenance dealer.

Tips
Don't hesitate to ask since the worst anyone can say is "we have none".
Many places that have discounts don't give them unless the customer asks for the discount each time. <frown>

Most fast food places give some kind of discount, But you have to ask!! McDonalds and Burger King give discounted drinks. Taco Bell gives free drinks. Pizza Hut and many other restaurants give 10% off.

Wendy's usually gives 10% off but occassionaly you'll find one that will give free drinks. Ages vary, but usually it's 55. ASK, ASK!!

It's sad that you can only get them once a week! You all deserve it, IMO! Check out All I Saw Cookware online; they are a small specialty kitchen/coffee/tea/gift store in Wasilla AK. They ALWAYS give a senior 10% discount. Not all inventory is online because they get SO MUCH stuff, but carry kitchen items from Le Creuset, Heinkel (knives and cookware) Spode China, Progressive, Norpro, April Cornell Clothing and Linens, WONDERFUL bulk coffee and teas, Villaware and Krups appliances, Capresso Machines, YOU NAME IT!

And ask about their candy too.....toll Free Line: 1-866-376-3177 or check out www.allisawcookware.com; PS I used to work there, and everyone is great! You can tell them Kelly sent you!

I would ask over the phone before you try it online.....as with any company. It is hard to verify age online!

What I would like to know is when does one qualify to get a Sr discount. I am turning 54 soon and certainly don't think of myself as a Senior yet....but my husband is older than me and just wondered when he can take advantage of discounts.

Debbie, the senior discount age varies anywhere from 50 - 65. You simply will have to ask if it is not posted.

Strange to me how some stores in a national chain provide senior discounts while some do absolutely NOTHING! My KROGER does NOTHING! Another reason to move elsewhere? LOL

Thanks for this forum to get more ideas of who is giving Senior Discounts. I get one at Burger King but it does vary by store. Most fast food places will give you something.

Chick-fila gives a Senior Drink and free refills. Captain D's gives 10% as does Fuddruckers. You do have to ask as it is not advertised as tall. Good Hunting!

In SD, KMart and Joann Fabric used to give senior discounts on a given day. I haven't been to either one of them for seveal years, because they are both so congested with merchandize that it is hard for me to get around in them and is actually annoying. I think Kohls gives a senior discount, at times. Anyway in their ads, it will say something to the effect that a special senior discount will be applied on a certain day.

Denny's gives a 20% discount between 4pm-10pm to AARP members. Tanger and Walgreens give AARP discounts too as does The Hartford for home and auto insurance (aarp.thehartford.com/).

The Pizza Hut in Palm Harbor FL., has a "30% off menu senior discount". You have to ask for it. I don't know if it's available at all Pizza Hut restaurants, but it's a large discount and worth asking for. Good on delivery orders too. McDonald's used to have a widely available "senior Coke" discount. Small Coke for about 30 cents and free refills I think. Haven't used it in a while and don't know if it's still around.
