My mother always told me that in order to get what you want in life, you have to ask for it. When it comes to saving money, asking for senior discounts can pay off in a big way! We’ve all seen senior discounts advertised at places like movie theaters and National Parks. (The America the Beautiful senior pass, for example, offers folks 62 and older a lifetime pass to more than 2,000 national parks and recreation sites for a one-time payment of just $10.) But did you know there are hundreds of restaurants, retailers, grocery stores and airlines that offer discounts every day? You may not know about them because many companies don’t advertise this fact. For instance, restaurants like Denny’s, Applebee’s and IHOP offer senior discounts? Almost all major airlines and rent-a-car companies offer discounts. Some companies – like Hallmark, Albertson’s and Hy-Vee – offer their discounts only on certain days of the week.
