Over 50? Save a little money for your preps!

5 min read

In these dire times we all can use some help. If you are a prepper, like many of us it’s scrimp and save to prepare. I recently received this email from a dear friend and found worth posting and sharing with all of you. I believe that most preppers are in the 50 plus year old category and even if you are not here is some great information for you and I encourage everyone to pass along to those that can use it.

Senior Discounts
(50 years and above) – Please pass it along!‏

Senior Discounts
Keep this list – – – and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.

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 those seniors over age 55 gets 10% off everything on the menu, every day.

Being of ‘that’ age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.  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, but for your friends and family, too.

Follow this post for all the places on this list!

Example – Dunkin Donuts gives free coffee to people over 55.  If you’re paying for a cup every day, you might want to start getting it for free??
