Senior discounts: Membership has its privileges
Better yet, check out seniordiscounts.com, a free online database of "age-related discounts." By clicking on "Discount Search," you'll be directed toward businesses in your zip code that offer some serious age-related bargains.
David Smidt, president of Seniordiscounts.com, cites KB Toys' "Grandparents' Rewards Club" as a good example of corporate America reaching out to the young-ish senior citizen. Installed a couple of years ago, the "Grandparents' Rewards Club" offers 10% off of purchases made on Tuesdays by those who are either 50-plus years old or a grandparent. As a result, what was once the least busy day of the week is now one of the busiest.
