Senior Discounts: Don't get sensitive about the word Senior - we all wanted to be the Seniors in High School. Well, now we get to enjoy the perks of being a Senior, whether that company defines Senior as over 50, over 55, over 60, or over 65! AARP defines Senior as 50 and over - so my lists will include 50 and over, but the list that follows will tell you (when it's clearly defined) what age.
Click Senior Discounts for a list of the local area Restaurants giving discounts to those of us privileged enough to be over 50!
Everyone loves "free" and "discounts" -- let's all admit it! So, let's all celebrate that fact. I confess - I shop with coupons. My husband negotiates discounts on behalf of himself with everything from the newspaper home delivery to car purchases and cell phone service - for us AND for our real estate sellers and buyers. We're both crazy "let's get the best price" people! I'd like to say it comes from both of us growing up in hard-working families, but I've experienced this when I lived at St. Andrews Country Club with some of the wealthiest people in the world. Two of Forbes wealthiest 500 live there, but the following anecdote isn't about either who are both low key, really down-to-earth people and their spouses even more so.
We often had dinner with an extremely wealthy couple at average price local restaurants and the husband, who probably makes more on rent collected in one month than I earned my whole life, asks the waitress if the Diet Coke has a bottomless refill. The waitress responds, "No." He refuses to order the Diet Coke he wants and instead drinks water. True Story and it happened more than once.
Moral: Everyone loves "free" and "discounts" - no matter how deep their pocket!
If you have a local place you want me to reach out to, by all means email me at KathyFineman@gmail.com and I'll see what I can do. No promises and know that these discounts are always subject to change without their informing me, but this will be a good place to start enjoying local "free" and "discounts" .... Have fun ...!
Did you know that you can save at least 10% at Bonefish Grill, McCormick & Schmick, Carrabbas, Rain Forest, Chart House and Landry's Seafood if you're over 50? Really! And how about that free donut at Dunkin Donuts? There are many local retailers and entertainment locations that also offer discounts and that list will follow shortly. Did you know that you can get 10% off at TJMaxx? 25% off at the Miami Zoo? And the Finemans are giving 20% off listing commissions for Valencia Cove residents through 2017! Now, that's a real savings! OMG!
