Do you want a discount?
The following is from a number of websites
that offer seniors an opportunity to find out what discounts they have. I am
listing some available in Canada and a link to a couple of pages where you can
find more information. If you are not in Canada, I suggest a Google search
Senior discounts (your country or state)
If you are a senior here are some general points about discounts, which I have pointed out before. From bus fare to movie tickets, senior citizens are discount-eligible almost everywhere in Canada. Here are a few sites where you can get more information https://dealhack.ca/blog/canadian-senior-discounts, https://carleton.ca/cura/wp-content/uploads/Canadian-Senior-Discounts.pdf, https://www.theseniorlist.com/senior-discounts/
To get the discount:
Senior discounts are not always openly advertised. It is recommended that you ask about whether or not the store offers a discount every time you make a purchase.
See if you qualify?
Most senior discounts are open for everyone, but please note that some discounts require memberships in some association or other
Always carry ID so you can prove our age when asked. Every discount in has a required minimum age so if you have id you can prove you qualify for the discount.
