Opportunity, Sales and Senior Discount

Turn music on or off here

opportunity for senior to save money through salesIf you are a senior or retiree, you likely live on a fixed income.  The days of spending money here and there without really thinking about it are far behind.  And shortfalls in federal tax income suggests reliance on Social Security may not be wise.   But there are many opportunities for a senior to find a discount, save time and money.  Clipping coupons and simply being more careful are just two ways to save money.  If you enjoy couponing I highly recommend the coupon sites Krazy Coupon Lady and Coupons.com.  While there are differences from location to location, I have found that Publix has the best coupon policy by far and when you apply their Buy One Get One (BOGO) Free offers and other discounts, the total cost of groceries can be much lower that other stores.  At least that is true for the stores in my area.  At Publix, you get a 5% discount with AARP membership on Wednesdays and their BOGO offers start on Wednesdays as well.  They double manufacturer coupons up to $.50 (in my area), accept competitor coupons for specific stores in your area, and offer quite a few Publix only coupons.  Look at the exist for a cabinet with flyers that include their store coupons.  You can also sign up for an account at Publix on-line so that coupons can be added to your account, accessed by your phone number at checkout.  They will let you use either a Publix (usually clipped) or competitor coupon AND a manufacturer coupon (clipped or digital).  They consider BOGO as buying two products even though you only pay for one so coupons that require a purchase of two items apply.  The savings add up VERY fast!  Check your local store for your discount opportunity.

Get great discounts by couponing, sales, and reuse

From Green Living, to simple things you can do at home, to the many discount and coupon opportunities that are available, a lot of money, and time, can be saved.  The National Council on Aging has an article on the Top 10 ways seniors can save money and can be found at http://www.ncoa.org/enhance-economic-security/economic-security-Initiative/savvy-saving-seniors/top-10-things-all-seniors.html.

Go to the subcategories under this menu tab for detailed information on how you can save money through on-line discounts, promo codes, coupon codes, senior discounts, membership discounts, emphasis on re-use, product and service provider discounts, and behavior modification.



Senior Discount

discount, reduced price, savings for seniors, senior discountsSince many senior discounts are not always advertised to the public, if you are a senior, ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount. The typical age for a senior to realize discounts is 50+.  But some establishments have different age thresholds.  So just ask, and save. Bargains are everywhere. Some senior discounts will vary by region. The majority of senior discounts that become available at age 50 are through AARP (current membership cost is $16 a year for an individual, with a complimentary membership for a spouse).
