Here is a master list of senior discounts with over 100 to shares with baby boomers and seniors. You may be surprised at how young you can be and still get senior discounts. The post has been updated for 2017.
Print this out and include in a birthday card for your favorite senior or baby boomer!
Occasionally, some franchise owners do not honor corporate discounts which can lead to frustration. Call ahead and ask before you head out. I hope you enjoy this list and will share it!
Never be embarrassed to ask for your discount! Why pay full price when you don’t need to? My girlfriend said she would never ask for a senior discount because ” it would ruin her day.” I would rather have the extra money in my pocket, how about you?
Last weekend, both my husband and I saved almost $10 on our movie tickets, yeah us! He said, “Now I can afford a snack!” Love that guy.
