Senior discounts..

As I was waiting in line behind an
older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount.
The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man
what the discount was, he told me that seniors over 55 gets 10% off everything
on the menu, every day.

Being that age myself (or a little older), I
figured I might as well ask for the discount too. As I waited for my turn, I
thought about the consequences of doing so. If the employee asked me for I.D.,
it could be embarrassing having to show my license. But if she didn't ask for
proof, I would get depressed that I really did look "old" and that I didn't need
to prove it. Since I always like to save money, I boldly asked for the discount,
and sadly she just rang up the discount (even though I am convinced I don't look
a day over 54).

Anyway, this incident prompted me to do some research,
and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel
deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age
requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of
them start at the young age of 50.

This list may not only be useful for
you, your friends and family, but it might also be appreciated by your clients.
You might consider sending them an e-mail about it and link to our site in the
e-mail, or maybe include it in your newsletter.

    Don't know whether to laugh (or not) .. seems the grey on the roof gets the discount without even being asked for in the first place!
