    • Gail says:

      Then don’t use them.

    • Rich says:

      what about people on disability? I have stage 4 cancer and I could really use the discount. I shop at Home Depot and Lowes and would love a 10 percent discount since my salary has decreased almost 50 percent and I have 5 specialists that I have to pay copays each 35 bucks. I didn’t choose cancer but teachers and military people chose their career.

      • Paula says:

        Your lawyer brain? My penny-
        pinching retiree brain has no trouble seeing the logic. Why would you even take the time to post or read about senior discounts if you don’t see the logic?

      • Dear Rich…I hope and pray that your are still here; yes you deserve a discount to any store that you are still able to shop at. I wish that you or a loved one would check out at a library or even buy a copy of “The 6th & 7th Book of Moses “. Find the part where in the Psalms, found in the book where is speaks of illnesses, and do what it says, I’m praying for a MIRACLE for you. With GOD all things are possible. . .You have to believe it in your heart. Peace and Love to you. . .Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving

  3. Debi Scholtes says:

    My husby took Lou’s report to heart & headed over to Dunkin’ Donuts (in Morton Grove,IL) and asked for a senior coffee. They gave him a cup about half the size of a regular…and charged him 30 cents less…than a regular. LOL!!!

  4. Jessica Rae says:

    Bon-Ton only gives that Wednesday senior discount to seniors using a Bon-Ton credit card. Not the friendliest of approaches and, while it can lead to increased credit card enrollment (their goal, since if you have a store card, you’ll it), it’s a deal breaker to me. Of course, in this capitalist society, they’re entitled to do whatever they want.

    • Freda Pennybaker says:


    • Shiloh says:

      What difference does it make? Besides, you’ll get $20 for opening an account. There’s no law that says you must use the card any time but Wed. I love their sales & secret specials. Try it; you may like it.

  5. peggy griffin says:

    ThanksDon for the nice list of discounts. We will use some of them. Love to Deb

  6. would love to see some discounts for tanning salons

    • Bonnie says:

      “Roberta, you want tanning salon discounts? In my opinion, I wish ALL the tanning salons would get shut down. Young teenage girls are laying in those beds and don’t even realize what it’s doing by adding age to their pretty skin. Worst of all is having pre-cancerous moles frozen or cut off their faces and other body parts from fake baking. All tanning beds do is bake the skin from the inside out which causes not only damage from the harmful UVA rays that destroy the outer body but the inner body by adding 10 to 15 years of premature aging to the entire body before the age of 40! Read this on Web Md and it’s in all health magazines stressing why tanning beds cause premature skin aging and skin cancer and to use facial and body cosmetics that contain high SPF skin factors. I’m telling you and all who read this reply because since the age of 40, I’ve been going to doctors and skin cancer specialists for 21 years to have pre-cancerous moles removed from my face, chest, arms, back and legs, the smaller moles were frozen or burnt off, the larger moles were cut out at the hospital then sent out for exam at a cancer lab to check if the mole or in my case many moles were benign or malignant.These invasive treatments do cause permanent scars. All this damage was caused by me going and laying in the tanning beds or laying out at the pool in the hot sun unprotected since I was 15 years old.I only wish now what would have happened to me but it’s too late. If my reply only saves one person to stay out of those tanning beds and the hot sun, use lots of SPF and not have to go through what I have and still do to this day, then my reply to you will be worth it”

      • Gail says:

        Totally agree with Bonnie–why spend $$ to get cancer???

        To the 57 year old lawyer–not everyone has a job like yours–I was a teacher and I can use the discounts.

      • Kay says:


        • Joan Smith says:

          Good advice Bonnie! Wish I could get my daughters and 22 year old granddaughter to heed your words of wisdom! I know several women in their fifties who are dying from melanoma that started with a skin cancer that started out on their feet from being exposed to the sun. So be sure to also caution all to protect their feet from the sun with sunscreen. Keep spreading the word!

      • SheriC says:

        About 30 years ago, my dermatologist found out I owned a hair salon with a tanning bed in it. He said, “I can guarantee you this: in 20 years, every user of those tanning beds will be the patient of a dermatologist. Those machines cause skin cancer.” He said more, too. I sold my salon within six months of him telling me that.

    • Aunt Jane says:

      Roberta, I hope you will take Bonnie seriously. I only thing would add is that the only worst thing you can do for your health is to take up smoking.

  7. Barbara H says:

    i have not received my beading kit, purchased feb 4th.

  8. Donna says:

    So I saved my list of items until today (Tuesday) and I just went to Rite Aid and was told “no such thing”!! Never heard anything about this!!

    Is this list for real??

  9. Joann C says:

    Michaels craft store does a 10% discount on Tuesdays for 55+

  10. Lauren R says:

    Kohl’s is 15% off every Wednesday.

  11. SDPeg says:

    No discount at Albertsons

  12. Be says:

    I work for Krogers and the only discount is a employee discount.

    • jackie says:

      The Krogers in Columbia SC offers seniors (55+) 5% off every wednesday. it’s also on their website

      • Jennifer says:

        Called my Kroger White Lake, MI said they don’t participate in a senior discount program but there are locations out there that do… wish they would publish which ones do. Why do they have to be so secretive about these. Just want to help out my grandparents.

    • Barbwire54 says:

      I have received the senior discount at Kroger’s. In one case it was automatically deducted and was listed on the receipt. At the store I visit regularly you must take your receipt to customer service and they give you the refund.

      • Stella Jobe says:

        That way less people would use it because of having to go to customer service and wait in line to get it. This is ridiculous!

        • Joan says:

          I wonder if going to customer service is simply Kroger’s method of controlling dishonest cashiers from giving a discount to friends and family members who are not seniors.

          • Joan says:

            P>S>-I just wish there was a Kroger’s or any other grocery that gave any kind of discount here in southern Alabama!

    • Mary says:

      I just called my Kroger and it’s the first Wednesday of every month 10% off 60+.

    • I’m 71 and have shopped at Krogers in Houston TX and Katy TX and have received a 10% senior discount on Kroger-brand products since I was 55. Maybe Be doesn’t realize that employee discount and senior discount are the same?? Here in Texas we get a Kroger card when we turn 55 and the cashier scans it when we check out.

    • Gail says:

      WRONG-in Texas where I live you get 10% off all Kroger brand products. Plus, you earn “points” for every dollar you spend-$100=.10 off each gallon of gas. Prescriptions give you 50 points each–they add up quickly.
      This is everyday not special days.

    • David hudson says:

      Fred Meyer (a kroeger chain here in seattle) has a 10% 1st tues each month discount. They are also tied into QFC, but I haven’t tried QFC to see if they offer the same. Way too costly.

    • KB says:

      I live in Georgia, went to Kroger yesterday. Here they give 5% off every Wednesday
      for 55+. I get it every time I go there on wed.

  13. Wanda says:

    Kroger, Savannah gives 5 percent on Wednesday

  14. Prosfores says:

    Kohl is 15% off every Wednesday

  15. Danni says:

    @Rebecca : What type of deal you needed?

  16. Geri says:

    You can get 10% off all kroger brand items everyday!

  17. J says:

    Burger King has changed their policy to offer a 75 cent senior drink, not a 10% purchase discount.

  18. bevanne says:


  19. Russell Call says:

    I will never shop at Smith’s again, I will not carry a card to buy my food again. They always over charge my bill. There in one checker who is very rude to me and I’m no longer willing to except this kind of treatment. Russell

  20. Madeleine says:

    TJ Max offers a 10% discount every Tuesday. Marshall’s does not although they are owned by the same company. Not sure about Homegoods, they may offer a discount.

  21. Claudia says:

    For Kroger , Fry’s re-register your vip card ask the clerk to note your age as a Senior.
    If that does not work call the VIP number on the card. That can be corrected. If you don’t get a discount ask to speak to a manager. Sometimes employees just don’t know !
    Lastly we are all using email ….send one to customer service and don’t be slow about calling with your concern. Say something speak up !
    The Senior days discount is built into the register system.

  22. lawson rowe says:

    ordered oral b brush heads over a month ago,,still not here

  23. Margaret says:

    I recently noticed that Rite aide is offering seniors 20% of everything in the store on WEDNESDAYS. I recently asked for the Tues. discount and they said that is not good anymore. (My personal experience at a nearby Rite Aide). You might want to check it out.

  24. [...] Seniors Pay Less: Many retailers, including Kohl’s, offer discounts to older people, usually over 55, on certain days of the [...]

  25. Carmike Cinemas and other places have young people working at them, to those teenagers, we look ancient. I remember my first job, I didn’t think anyone was old enough to drink beer or to old to be out on a Friday night. So if they don’t ask, tell them you ask…tell them your age. I had a little girl the other day to very timidly ask me if I was old enough for the discount…since I didn’t know they had a discount, I laughed and told her I wasn’t sure…what age was the discount…..she said 55…I smiled at her and told her I was 55 on the button…and she was very relieved…so it’s an embarrassment for them to try and ask our age….they don’t want to insult someone that is not old enough….have patience people…God will Bless us all.

    • Joan says:

      And then you have people like my mom who became upset when asked if she qualified for the senior discount. She was still in her 40′s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. NANCY ROSE says:

    Can you get the senior discounts online or in the store only.???

  27. Lillie Shehane says:

    A very interesting post.

  28. P C Brown says:

    I’m in Texas – Burger King has 50 cents “Senior Drink” including “Senior Coffee”. At McDonald’s it’s 49 cents, at Whataburger it’s free, no purchase required. And Texas Burger also has free senior soft drink, regular size. And did I mention, all these are with free refills.

  29. Irma says:

    With my Lyoness free cashback card I get money back that mulitiplys 11 fold over time, so shopping at more than 29,000 Loyalty Merchants in 44 countries around the world provide unlimited shopping opportunities, there are also around 3,200 online stores which offer a selection of over 170 million items – in 44 countries.. That’s what I call happy shopping.

  30. Margaret says:

    I think someone needs to re-check Rite-Aids Tuesday discount. I was told they do not offer this anymore.
    The do have a 20% off for seniors on the first Wed. of every month now.

  31. Elaine says:

    Seniors get 10 percent discount every Tues. at KROGER Hot Springs, Ar!

  32. Walgreens has a senior day each month, you have to check the weekly circular in the Sunday newspaper for the exact date for you city. It is usually 29% off Walgreen brands and 15% of most everything else you buy.

  33. Chrissy says:

    Dressbarn age and date will vary by location. Contact your local store for exact day. A lot of them are 65 and on Tuesdays.

  34. jillybean says:

    I would think it is up to the discretion of each chain branch whether they want to participate. Most are independently owned and operated, especially the food chains, and while corporate may suggest these deals to the managers/owners, don’t believe they are required to honor them. It’s a shame, because seniors are a huge part of their income before 6PM, when a lot of these places sit empty waiting for the “dinner rush.” If any of them have suggestion cards or boxes, fill them out (whether they get thrown in the circular filing bin is another issue LOL!).

  39. linda says:

    I have asked at Great Clips and the discount starts at 65.

  40. Spike Spikeson says:

    Alaska Airlines does not offer senior discounts. They advise to use the ‘low fare’ search function.

  41. Brenda says:

    McDonald’s has senior citizen coffee for $1, regular size.

  42. Brenda says:

    Now I’m being told the $1 coffee and sodas are for everybody, they’re on the Dollar Menu. Cool!

  43. Douglas Gingerich says:

    KFC and McDonalds offers good.

  44. Gene Taylor says:

    McDonald gives a beverage discount to seniors.

  45. Ben Langley says:

    I prefer to spend my money with local stores. They offer me a senior discount everyday of the week. I don’t have to worry about which day of the week I go shopping.

  46. Ilene Reese says:

    I really appreciate this list.. I don’t usually remember to ask for discount, just greatful to have the many to get what I need…

  47. George Fernandez says:

    Subway should be taken off this list. I asked about a senior discount at the subway at North Island NAS and they just laughed at me and told me they never heard of such a thing..

  48. jackpotwinner says:

    Kroger in the Houston Tx area offers 10% discount to seniors when you purchase Kroger brands. You just have to call cust. serv. on their 800 number and they will tie in your loyalty card to this discount so that every time you shop and buy Kroger brands you automatically get a 10% discount. No going to courtesy booth or anything. You can still use coupons Kroger offers on line on their brands with this discount. Not available on gas or gift cards. We have saved a lot using this discount. Most of the Kroger brands are pretty comparable to national brands. I don’t know if this discount is offered all over the US or just in certain areas but it is certainly worth checking out. Hope this will help some one.

  49. Maccutie says:

    I am celebrating my 55th birthday today!!! Woohoooo!!!! So I came to this page looking for the discounts I’ll now qualify for. And I find that many discounts are for 60 & 65? Que triste!! (How sad!) LOL!!! Anyway…I’m thinking that as I shop and use the different services there will probably another code that will give me a better discount….
