Senior Discounts Available...but you gotta ask!
« on: November 22, 2013, 02:05:31 PM »
In case you know any old folks looking for a good deal:


Old DCPatriot says...received this email today from a close friend.
 
 
 
 
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. 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.

LOL!

It's hard to decide...should I take advantage of the $5,000 discount for the Presidential Suite at the Waldorf Astoria next Sunday?

or....


Just take my lady friend to the Motel 6 and get the room for free?
