Senior Discounts

 Many of our local restaurants and retail shops offer senior discounts starting at the age of 55. I love saving money and getting good deals so I have actually looked forward to turning 55. 

A few weeks ago my husband and I went to a local  buffet restaurant and the probably 16 year old girl running the register (without asking) rang us up as two seniors which was for 65 and over. Oh well, if she is going to call us old then we're going to accept the discount!

I was  in Michael's craft store last week and needed quite a few items when I noticed that they are now offering a senior discount for 55 and over on Tuesdays. I actually saved my purchase until I became a qualified senior. Well, yesterday was the day,  it's official, and I have an ID to prove it!  

I really can't wait to go make my first qualifying purchase! I'm 55!!!!!!

What is the best senior discount you have gotten?
