I have not checked to see if all of these discounts actually exist. Check ahead of time to save yourself from being embarrassed by believing me. It never hurts to ask before you make any purchase if they give seniors discounts.

Senior Discounts

The following post was written by a man named Steve Herman. You can see the original post here

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. Remember, YOU must ASK for your discount!

Also, for military discounts, visit this great list, .

NOW, go out there and claim your discounts -- and remember -- YOU must ASK for discount -- no ask, no discount. I know everyone knows someone over 50. Please pass this one on!

Please do note that some of the discounts above may vary from location to location, so you may ask and find that the discount has been tailored per your geography. We have updated the list from time to time to reflect the feedback from our readers.]
