THINKING THURSDAY: SENIOR DISCOUNTS

This List of Senior Discounts for People Over 50 Might Be the Best Thing You Learn All THINKING THURSDAY!

This post was written by a man named Steve Herman.

Originally posted MOGUL, I decided to share this post because WE cannot wait for retirement!
HERE YOU GO:

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!
