You Never Know Until You Ask
~ By Bill Watson, Prime Time For Seniors ~
This article was inspired by a Facebook post. As the story goes a gentleman was waiting behind a another person at a local fast food restaurant. He overheard the person ask if they had a “Senior Discount” and the girl at the counter apologized and gave him the discount.
I asked my wife to call a few local businesses and was quite surprised that, yes there are discounts out there. Most are not published, but if you ask you most likely will receive a 10% discount or higher. Of all the businesses we contacted, the vast majority said, by all means tell your readers to ask for their senior discount if they are not sure.
Here is an example of local Denver merchants that honor your age:
- IHop: 10% off (55+)
- Krispy Cream: 10% off (50+)
- Village Inn: 10% off (60+)
- Banana Republic: 30% off (50+) stores only
- AMC Theaters: up to 30% Tuesdays (ask for discount)
Get the idea? It doesn’t hurt to ask. Merchants want your business. If you visit a business and they offer a discount let us know and we’ll list it in the Prime Time. We would love to share that info with Prime Timers.
