Proudly whip out that driver’s license and pay less than that youngster behind you in line. Many senior discounts are offered by franchise owners and some choose not to participate in certain promotions. Senior discounts can vary by location and can change at any time. Contact the store to verify the promotion to eliminate disappointment or frustration.
