Since I'm 52, I visited the Premium Outlets on a Tuesday and took advantage of senior discount. Two of the three stores in which I made purchases offered the 10% discount for those 50 and older. At one store, the 10% discount was in addition to sale prices that were already 40% off. I'm definitely planning to make another trip on a Tuesday to do some after Christmas shopping:-)
For curiosity, I checked the Internet for other senior discounts that start at 50. There were four:
Most of the other senior discounts start at 55, 60, 62 or 65. Here is a Senior Discount Directory that I found at About.com. A significant number of senior discounts are at restaurants, but there are also senior discounts at hotels, department stores, and grocery stores.
It's nice to get a few benefits from being older. I hope these senior discounts, especially the ones at grocery stores, are still in effect when I reach the appropriate age.For more on Reaping the Rewards, check back every Friday for a new segment.
