  1. Are you aware that when you hit 4 decades old, whether you are a guy or perhaps a women, the body begins aging Quicker than normal? Research has proven that with no proper nutrition and workout, the body will age about 6 several weeks EXTRA for each year that passes. [url redacted- admin]

  2. My discount card has lots of discounts. I don’t have problems and buy all the medications that the doctor prescribes to me. discountdrugnetwork.com

  3. Alberta Dental Clinic would be pleased to assist you with your dental needs. We practice a two stages protocol. In the first stage we place the implants (surgery), after the healing process (4-6) months later, you will then come for the rehabilitation of you implants (crowns, fixed dentures or full arch bridges).

  4. I really appreciate the discounts. A $20 discount is offered on Sky-Seller online shop as well as Worldwide free shipping is also offered. Visit the store now

  5. Just discovered that a local deli in New Port Richey, Florida called Jersey Boy’s Deli offers 10% senior discount for anyone 60 and over everyday. Would love to see this wonderful place as part of your list.

    Thank you

    Heidi

    1. They fixed the problem in their 2015 list, but for 2016 bumped it back to 10%. It went down officially for all Kroger’s back in 2014. The change was rolled out in small batches until the drop dead date in 2014 hit. The day of the week I believe is up to each region. Here in Middle Tennessee it is on Wednesday’s.

  6. Please add AvaCare Medical (avacaremedical.com) – they offer a 10% discount during June as well as year-round for veterans. They sell all kinds of medical equipment and stuff. Thanks!

    1. Hi Dina – That’s a great tip on AvaCare but we’re only adding consistent discounts for folks 50+. There are so many niche discounts that our list would be a mile long (it’s getting there). Appreciate the input, and please keep offering suggestions! We love the input 🙂

  7. I had been getting my drugs at Sams (often lower than Costco) and Smiths, a division of Krogers. Same gives free prescriptions for prescribed vitamins (i.e., D3..very expensive at Smiths..free at Sams) and Alzheimers meds. Recently, I got a letter from my insurance agent that Optum Rx is often MUCH cheaper than what I have been paying. I had been skeptical because some of my meds were only $2.00 at Smiths, but I checked and I was shocked. All but one of my meds were FREE at Optum! The one that wasn’t free was slightly less than at Smiths…it wasn’t significant, so if that was the only difference, I wouldn’t have changed…but the rest were totally free!!! I have AARP insurance. So all of you folks on AARP insurance, check out Optum RX.

  8. Please add Bi-Lo to your list of supermarkets which offer a senior discount. 5% off every Wednesday for those 60 and older. You have to have their card and make another short application (easy peasy, just ask at the customer service counter).

  9. Useless without the above mentioned printable pdf list. 17 pages? No thank you. Did you ever come up with the pdf?

    Thanks

  10. Kroger in Houston has told me they no longer give senior discounts because of fraud. If you had a card previously you can keep it but they are no longer taking any new applications.

    1. I hope u love the fact that they give millions in political donations to candidates that you may or may not endorse. These endorsements are not necessarily favoring seniors.

    1. Yes it does Pat. If you look directly below the end of the post, you’ll see a little printer icon. Click that and it will open up a PDF pop-out where you can print off a “printable”. 🙂

      1. Actually, it’s not very “print friendly”. Each of 3 post pages have to be printed separately. It would be nice to have a single pdf or text of the entire 2016 list. Thanx.

          1. Could you please send me the printer friendly version of the list?
            I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much! Great job maintaining that list too. I’m sure it’s quite a lot of work!
