FYI – anyone 55+ can get the “senior discount” at the Morgan Street Thriftway – BUT ONLY on Tuesdays according to the clerk I talked to. I thought he was kidding, but he said NO – just Tuesdays!July 3, 2009 at 3:42 am #671188July 3, 2009 at 4:39 am #671189July 3, 2009 at 6:52 pm #671190
ok…I have to make a point of doing that…being as it’s about a half block walk to get it – lol….July 3, 2009 at 7:36 pm #671191
they didn’t even ask to see my ID:(
guess i don’t look as young as i had hoped ;(July 3, 2009 at 11:48 pm #671192July 4, 2009 at 12:41 am #671193July 4, 2009 at 1:30 am #671194
no problem! a couple other good discounts I know of – hope this doesn’t count as advertising (if it does TR, feel free to take off this post):
Wine: buy 6 bottles (half case) get 10% off (if they are not already on sale) buy a case (12 bottles) and I think, you get 15% – don’t quote me on that – but I do know we offer a discount on a case.
Case Discounts: Buy a case of product receive 10% off (like above, if not already on sale)
Coupons: Several times a year we have coupon books. You can find them at the front entrance.
Special Sales: Keep an eye out for our 2-day and 12 hour sales.
Oh and JoB, don’t feel bad about not being carded for the discount. It’s kind of a touchy subject because many a cashier have been chewed out for asking “Are you a senior?”
Best thing to do is just ask for the discount, it makes it easier on both you, and the cashier. I know I hate making other women feel old…

Anyhoo, I guess its not a secret.July 4, 2009 at 1:43 am #671196
HunterG, the Summer after graduating high school I worked for a place that offered a senior citizen discount. It was always a tricky call to ask someone if they qualified (the discount wasn’t obviously advertised anywhere). On one hand, I wanted to help people save money, and if they did qualify and found out after paying that they could have saved money, they’d get mad; on the other hand, I worried about offending someone who wasn’t over 65. Tough call, every time.July 4, 2009 at 6:57 am #671197
now there’s the rub…some businesses give a discount at 55, some at 60, some at 62, and yet some more at 65…so I guess we do have to speak up, whatever our age..get’s confusing – lol…July 4, 2009 at 10:22 am #671198
My wife was recently asked “senior discount?” and replied she was not a “senior” I told her next time that happens, just say yes and take the discount.July 5, 2009 at 4:27 am #671199July 5, 2009 at 3:48 pm #671200
