    Senior discounts

    Got this forwarded to me.

    "Saw this on FB. Havenít checked this out personally, but it never hurts to ask!


    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 howsome 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.

    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.

    Thanks Dutch, I have seen lists like this before but didn't remember most of them. Wendys' will give seniors free drinks as well. The wife and I used to frequest them when we worked the cannery.

    There is also a long list of places like Home Depoe and Lowes that provides Veteran discounts also. I would think the same applies in most places so why not ask. I look at it as a way to get around the state sales tax which varies from county to county. Your discount pays more than your taxes will be at all of these places.
