Monday, February 20, 2017 – Getting Senior Discounts is one of the delights of my life! I look for them everywhere and have enjoyed so many it’s exhilarating! Just this weekend we got to ride the New Orleans streetcar for only 60 cents, a deep discount from the normal $1.25!! We get into all National Parks absolutely free and have taken advantage of that every time!
Retail Me Not came out with this great list of 30 plus Senior discounts so I wanted to share it with ya’ll!.
Remember: Always confirm ahead of time that your local venue honors a specific senior deal. In fact, we suggest asking everywhere, from utility companies and airlines to hotels and even your alma mater, about what, if anything, they do for seniors. Hey, you put in the time, so why not?
