Discounts for Seniors That Make You Look Forward to Becoming One!
Discounts for Seniors That Make You Look Forward to Becoming One!The following post was written by a man named Steve Herman. You can see the original post here. For our fans who are already at that wonderful phase in their life, we thought the following information would be greatly helpful for you:
As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 -- get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your discount.)
Being of 'that' age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too. This incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals, and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50 .
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.
