Senior Discounts

My sweet mom turned 60 today. (Happy Birthday Mom!) They say with age comes wisdom, but even better, it comes with senior discounts at your favorite grocery store!  Many stores offer a senior discount and it only takes a second to ask the customer service desk (and definitely can’t hurt to ask).

The fun part for couponers… the discount is always BEFORE coupons!

In my area:

Publix: 5% Discount on Wednesday (Not available in FL)

Kroger: 5% Discount every Wednesday (varies greatly by region and city call your store first!)

Bi-Lo: 5% Discount every Wednesday (register your BonusCard)

Do you have any stores in your area that have senior discount days?

      Don't know if it is true for all Publix stores, but the one in Lexington,SC no longer asks you if you qualifry for the senior discount on Wednesdays. You have to remember to ask for it.
