For us olde pharts!!

I'm not the author - just the messenger.

Senior Discounts

Keep this list - - - and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

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 gets 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. Pass it on!

Dunkin Donuts gives free coffee to people over 55. If you're paying for a cup every day, you might want to start getting it for free.

Re: For us olde pharts!!

Just one more reason I like being old - #1 reason being that there are no kids in my house. But this ranks right up there!

It would have been mean if it were true. But since I was lying, it probably just qualifies as "smart ass".

Re: For us olde pharts!!

Dick that's some list.
From where I sit on my LT you are not just the messenger, but also the researcher, editor and a few other things OK let me stop there and be respectful of a vintage young man how's that.
One thing as we get old the mind tends to forget. 1st the list, then how old you are and was I suppose to ask for a 100% discount and it could only get worse. Thanks again for the list. Note to self: if I do forget call Dick (55+)
ride safe

Same here.... But I guess the tradeoff is, I didn't have to do two tours in Afghanistan with the USMC!

As for myself, I am still a young whipper-snapper that can't get any discounts for two more years.
