I just called Applebee's and the girl that answered the phone said she didn't know about a senior discount. I asked to speak to the manager....she comes back and tells me to call back in 10 minutes because the manager was busy. I'll call tomorrow.

I've known about the Dunkin Donuts discount, however, the one I go to says you have to be 65.

I happen to like their men's boxer shorts underwear ... much better quality, longer lasting and attractive patterns, than what is for sale at the regular department stores.

My wife would, and does. BR often carries skirts and classic white shirts in her size.

Darn, I just went to Krispy Kreme today for the first time in a long time, and I missed out on my discount! :-(

I should have looked at this thread sooner.

A discount would "sweeten" the deal...

Sorry to reopen this thread but have any of you notice any raising of the senior age limit? I'm talking about raising from 55 to 60 to 65. I was just in a buffet tonight and I told my 61 year old wife that she should ask about the senior discount (you prepay here at this place befor you eat) and the manager told her 65! 65 now?! Seems to me as if the senior age limit is a moving target suddenly nowadays. I don't ask any more as I am 56 and don't qualify for most of the time. I can remmember when it seemed like 55 year olds regularly got SDs. Am I b*****n'? He** yeah! But really I'm finished with asking for them unless I see a big sign in black and white. Whatever, I don't care anymore. I'll pay. But it is kind of a rotten trick.
I guess some of my (ahem) fellow baby boomers have been writing nasty letters to these businesses informing them that boomers are much too young for SENIORS DISCOUNT FCOL! Just kidding folks! Glad to get this off my chest.

Wow - I had somehow missed this thread . . . I am copying off the info and gonna take advantage of these great discounts.

You will want to check this out for your area or for any area where you are traveling, but I have discovered that many B&Bs offer a senior discount. Here is the link.

I just found out the other day that Michael's Craft stores give 10% discount to AARP members. I asked if it was on just regular priced stuff or everything. The woman told me that she was pretty sure it was on the entire order including sale prices.

Of course I had already checked out before I saw the sign and she didn't offer to return the items and re-ring them up. But I sure will remember the next time!!! I am a big crafter and this will be great.
