Seniors must know this!

Frugal Ways to save            Updated June 2018
A while back this was found on FaceBook thought I should share it.
I don’t know if everything is true today but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Being in our 60s i usually always ask if there is a senior discount available.
Many times the answer is yes! If you don’t ask they probably won’t tell.

We have eaten in restaurants were the menu says free desert with every meal.
Sounds great but if you don’t read the fine print “You must purchase a drink”
you lose out. Usually the waitress won’t tell you.
But if you ask they well say; “You have to buy a drink”.  Always ask!

Seniors must ask these vendors about any discounts!

Dunkin Donuts App has some good perks.

YOU must ASK for your discount !
