Discounts for Seniors

A few days ago, in a telephone conversation with two of our Ohio supporters, the subject of senior discounts was raised. Our concern was: “How do we get discounts for our members?” Then, one of our friends suggested that one of his close friends had made a study of that issue and that Seniors Serving Seniors could benefit from her efforts. We contacted her, and here is what she had to say.

“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 Wendy’s 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 very young age of 50.”

Because she approves of what Seniors Serving Seniors is doing for older Americans, Debbie quite generously gave us the list of merchants who provide discounts to seniors. Now, Seniors Serving Seniors is pleased to provide that list to its Members and Friends. This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family, too. If you do refer it to others, please tell them about Seniors Serving Seniors and its value to older Americans. Also, please mention our website.
