Senior discounts are actually not too hard to come by. While some establishments—especially retail stores—do not exactly display the discounts that they offer, it can be extremely beneficial to just ask so that you can save your money.
A lot of AARP members, in particular, may be able to qualify for retail store discounts on some days of the week or month. A few establishments set fixed days for these discounts to take into effect for senior citizens, while others allow AARP members to get them any day of the week.
To clarify any confusion, you can also inquire whether discounts apply online, in-store, or for both.
