Savvy Discounts for Seniors

Discounts for Silver (Senior) Citizens!

Ladies and gentlemen, I know we don’t usually like to disclose our age, but in Florida, if you are over the age of 55 and some places 50, you are entitled to a Silver Discount. Every little helps I say and so be brave celebrate your years of wisdom. Unlike the UK, they are not going to ask you to take out your bus pass to prove it, so sometimes it is just yours for the asking. Let’s face it – to the 18 year old on the till anyone over 40 could be a senior to them!

It’s quite amazing how many places offer a discount. You can get discounts from Restaurants, Retail and Clothing Stores, Grocery Stores, Hotels, Entertainment, Cell Phone Providers ... the list goes on.

So how do you go about claiming your discount – well first you may need to do a little research on the stores near where you will be visiting. They don’t all offer discounts every day. For some it’s only on a specific day. Also don’t assume they will automatically apply the discount – you may need to ask. You could look up Senior Discounts on Google.
