I find it easier to simply ask "Can I get a senior discount?"...

You might be able to start sooner than that, some the discounts are effective at age 50

I've been experiencing the age thing in different ways:

Dollar General checked my ID when I purchased a bottle of wine (I know, weird...)

Golden Coral gives me the Senior discount, even though I don't yet qualify...

Some time I look like a Senior; and then some times I don't

Sometimes you get them without asking.

I never seem to get them unless I ask, despite my grey/white hair. Besides, it's more polite to ask even if you know they have a discount, IMO, because that way they don't ring it up without the discount.

I did starting this year - knocked off a whopping 5%. But that's $200 I didn't have to pay, so I'll take it...

Tis true...lucky me! ...and in just a few more months I'll get the discount for being 55.

Good starter list.

I would suggest confirming with each individual point of purchase before assuming this list is 100% accurate, as discounts may vary depending on location.

Glancing through the list, I noticed a few discrepancies from recent personal experiences.
  • In the Florida Keys, the Beall's store there had 15% off for 60+ on Mondays.
  • Dress Barn in Michigan has 10% off on Wednesdays for 62+.

You can, if you live in my state:

Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program

It also includes a rent rebate assuming you meet the income levels.

Also, in my area you get a senior discount (age 65) for municipal trash collection, regardless of income.

It all adds up...

20% off at Kmart for 50+ is significant. It might be worth it to buy some groceries there.

I think the 20% off is only on prescription drugs.

I was at Chick-fil-a this morning. Ordered coffee with a burrito. I usually order a senior coffee. It's free! Why did I forget to do it this morning Sometimes it's hard to admit you're a senior, even to yourself I suppose.
