2021 Senior Discounts For Grocery Stores

Share: copied!

We continue to have an incredible response to all of our senior discount lists, and thank each of you who has contributed input.  Many of the grocers on our new 2021 list of Senior Discounts For Grocery Stores have been verified. We attempted to reach out to all the Grocers on our list, but some were unresponsive. 

Sadly, the list for senior discounts at grocery stores has shrunk over the years.  Stores are utilizing points and rewards cards these days, and discount programs are being cut as a result (Kroger is a good example of a store that dropped their senior discount program – See below).

Be aware that discount policies change from time to time.  They change at the national level, and they change at the local level. Our best advice for discount shoppers is to ask ahead of time so there are no surprises. 

Senior discounts for grocery stores.
Senior discounts are hard to find, but they are out there!

  1. Thank you, Barbara. The encouragement you’ve given is literally gold!! I do remember a lot of what you have written about, and experienced variations of the woes. You are quite a communicator. The best part (for me) is how easily your storytelling helps me to get up off my pity-pot, and move on! Thanks again, prayers in t j.g e air for you & yours Kate 67 Smiling, with a whole lot of attitude of gratitude.
  2. senior discounts are gone for most major grocery stores, weekly ads and digital coupons using cash back card to pay seem like only option
      1. The Ross stores used to have Tuesday as a senior discount day; don’t know if they still do, but it’s worth checking.
    1. That is an amazing story. My father had a depression mentality from luving through it. My grandma wore a housecoat that was tattered and torn. I remember visiting them in New York. They lived modestly. Our children dont understand that era. I do. I save everything. Have amassed a lot that will be for my children when I die. I worked hard, got a masters degree and worked for 50 years. I dont owe any $ on anything. Best to live below your means. Start saving early. I taught my kids based on my experience. Hopefully they will listen
  3. Wouldn’t it be Wonderful if all disabled only had to show their Medicaid or Medicare Card to Receive Qualifying Discounts instead of having to hunt for coupons & keep extra paperwork?! I would appreciate it if The Senior List would Speak Up For All Disabled ( Senior Plus)! Thank You For Your Voice!!! MISSOURI/ USA
  4. I am a widowed male that shops weekly and am very disturbed with price increases, I’m on a low fixed income and do not receive increases. If this continues I will have to make disastrous changes.
    1. Alan, every tues morning about 7:30 most nearby churches give away food and drink. Some give produce also. Please call your churches and ur towns social services to help you.
      1. The churches can bring food to you if you can’t go get them your self. I am 69 years old I deliver to people if they can’t get out. I live in Las Vegas, Nv.
      2. Please look into area food banks, visit or go online to see if you qualify for help food stamps (Snap). Dept of Aging may help. Churches may have monthly food banks through the state My church here in Pa has a dinner once a month for anyone who wants to attend without question of income. We ALL need help along the way so please don’t be afraid to ask for it in your community! SEEK AND YE WILL FIND! GOD BLESS!
    2. I know what you mean I am on a low fixed income and my bills take up most ofmy check. I get 21. Dollars in food stamps and can’t afford to eat. Church’s give out food, but I’m sick of green beans and rice and corn in a can. I’ve got where I don’t want any beans either. But I don’t want to seem ungrateful either.
      1. I’m in the same boat. SSD is swallowed up by living expenses (forget going to dr) and foodstamp approved $16/month. Food bank by me would only help short term – as if situation would magically change. What can you do.
  5. Every time I go out to the restaurant and I see an elderly man with his Military hat I buy his meal. My Father was a lifer in the Army. He told me if you see some one who was in the Armed forces, pleas acknowledge them and thank them for their Service. Thanks to my Father, I have made several Service Men very happy & some Men cry. They are very thankful that we appreciate them.
    1. It’s not the free meal that made him cry.I bet like me, he was a VietNam vet. When we came back we were called every name in the book. I was told not to wear my uniform in public for fear someone would spit on me. Today, I have young children thanking me for my service, I get discounts, and smiles. It is that finally we are appreciated.nibsmbso happy that our young service people are treated with respect. God bless your dad. Don’t forget your mom and entire family. Their sacrifice is also special and should be recognized. Jim C!
      1. I remember those incidents. It was horrible for what you went through there and the way you were treated when you came home. That was just one of the unjust situations!! Thank you
      2. Jim, I’m afraid I was one of those people who looked down on our returning Viet Nam soldiers. I was a teenager at the time . I am so very sorry and ashamed for not acknowledging you and all the other vets who served. I thank you now.
      3. I love your comment. My uncle Willard, one mom’s brothers fought in Vietnam. Came back with shell shock and PTSD. We had to use a broom handle to wake him up when he came to live with us for awhile. He died 2 years ago from cancer caused by the exposure to Agent Orange. I make it a point to either hug or shake a service man or veterans hand and thank them for their service. GOD BLESS YOU
      4. I had 3 brothers and 2 cousins who all served in Viet nam, at the same time, It was a very hard time for our parents and for us siblings. God took care and all came home to the hateful reception in California. My one brother was in the marines, he told my Dad about the way the people were acting, My Dad told him… Just tell yourself you did it for Momma and me, we appreciate what you and your brothers done.
      5. Jim: Having lived through and lost friends in Vietnam I remember it very well. I can’t imagine the nightmare it must have been just to get the notice of being deployed there. God bless you and all the young men who served or lost their lives for something that should have never happened. When I see a vet in a restaurant I will buy his meal. Such a small thing to do. Thank you for your service.
    2. Please don’t forget there are us Women who have served also. I get frustrated when people always assume that it was only my husband who served. I joined at the age of 25 after college because I WANTED to serve my country and help keep our freedoms. So please don’t forget us women vets??? US Army Combat Medic: Hooah!
    1. I need to know which city do I need to go to for these senior discounts? Do I need to show that I’m a senior citizen?
        1. Kroger (that is Smith”s here) sends you a booklet of coupon’s if you call the phone number on the back of your Smith’s card. Great coupon’s!
          1. Kroger sends me a long list of coupons each month of the one’s I continually use each month. They will switch them up if you don’t use that type. I use everyone they send me now since I have been getting them for so long.
        2. Wal-Mart doesn’t want to help elderly. No Senior Discount anywhere proves it. Yet they want to put every small store out of business. I saw them out in Neighborhood Market stores. All local stores went out of business then Wal-Mart closed the Neighborhood Market stores leaving local people driving umpteen miles for 1 gal of milk. We haven’t forgotten Wal-Mart. The Wal-Mart owners live like kings leaving the average person to “eat catfood”. Shopping there less and less. Wal-Mart trying to be Amazon.
    2. They so if are Service connected. Also all vet’s do on 4 holidays. I try not to go to Home Depot when I can go to Lowe’s as you still get every day.
    3. My home Depot in Freeport,NY gives 10% and so do many others although the Home Depot in Oneonta NY doesn’t. Lowe’s always gives 10%.
    4. What state do you live in? I regularly use both mine of my fathers at hone depot here on Kentucky and Ohio. This is crazy to me! I would think they would all be the same!
    1. Charleston, West Virginia Piggly Wiggly store offers Senior Discounts. Krogers here has too recently stopped, but it does have fresher and more choice of veggies and fruits…even more than Alldies. We have $ Tree, Family $, and $ General. I shop there for some canned food goods or home products. AARP at $16. per year is worth it for the discounts Seniors (55 I think) can get for food, travel, and entertainment. I totally agree with prior review that we can save by buying meat and veggies and cooking at home. It saves at lot and you can freeze what you don’t eat for another day. I don’t believe fast food of any kind is healthy. Let’s face it, prices are up on everything, but remember, you get what you pay for (most things).
          1. For any Smith Grocery stores if you call the number on the back of your Smith card and they will start sending you a booklet full of great coupons.
        1. Krogers has stoped a couple years ago here. Even so their prices tend to be a bit lower than some of the more locally owned supermarkets. But the Kroger and Wal-Mart here are so huge and I do not get around as well these days so don’t go to them very much!it would be nice if more grocery stores gave discounts. Kroger also used to send out a lot of coupons and if it was for something I used at least I saved a bit! My son is disabled and goes to some of the food pantries and gets stuff and shares with me!
          1. Google meatloaf with brown sugar, ketchup, & mustard for topping. Add celery, contains italian bread crumbs & zesty italian seasonings in a pkg for salads. Use on any meat
      1. Hi !! $? offers senior discounts? Can someone validate that info please?? I shop there all the time, when I can get a ride. I do a lot of crafts for gifts & I shop there as much as I can after my check comes in ?!! Thanks so much to anyone that can & does respond!!
    2. I received notice that social security had a cost of living increase then when I received my 2020 notice from as, it was the same amount. I l8ve in Fl. None of businesses on lists r anywhere near me!
  6. This is slightly off topic but it does deal with saving money for seniors. I’ll give a tip for some seniors who served in the military. My father (90 years old now) wears his Air Force Veteran baseball cap when he goes out to eat and often people will pay for his meal and thank him for is service. Not long ago we were at a restaurant and a lady came over to our booth and asked my brother to get up from his seat, which he did. Then she sat down next to my dad, gave him a kiss on the cheek, thanked him for his service and slipped him a $20 bill to pay for the meal (his meal was under $10). He had not been eating as he was not feeling well but that sure cheered him up! People have paid for his meal many times over recent years. I have said I would like a hat like that! Except I did not serve in the military so I would never do that. But for those who have served – I think they deserve as many free meals as they can get.
    2. Thank you RDennis! I greatly appreciate you sharing about your Dad’s dinners out. We need to appreciate retired service men much more. I think your comment was right on the mark. It was not even slightly off topic. Thank you!
    3. I think that is wonderful.May God bless her and Him. I feel all vet’s and those in active services should get free meals and discounts where ever they shop.God Bless our Military and The US of A.
    4. This is what I do. Tho I usually ask anyways about military discounts as I prefer to support such stores. Fast food chains vary from owner to owner tho sometimes it’s an employee. Also for those of you who don’t like the left bent of AARP’s political stance there’s an excellent alternative w AMAC. Go check them out if you haven’t already. AARP’s support for Obamacare was the nail in the coffin for me tho I think it started b4 that. Just an FYI.
    5. That is fabulous!!! I didn’t serve either, but it’s so wonderful to know that US Citizens still appreciate all that our Service men and Women did for us over SO MANY YEARS!!! God Bless you all for doing this for – especially our Senior Veterans!!
      1. J Henson, what state do you live in? If people know the state they could share with you what they know about discounts on that state. Also, most states have food banks. Some are by county, some by cities.
  7. Most stores in Florida offer senior discounts 55 and over. Lowe’s gives discounts to Veterans and their families 10%,. Golden corral has deals here Monday-Saturday before 4 pm, $9.20 includes a large. drink, and all taxes (Regularly $14.60) so that is a big savings. Corporate owned fast food restaurants usually offer discounts, not individually owned fast food (in California) Florida does offer quite a lot of discounts for people over age 55-60. Save a lot and Aldi’s are the least expensive food stores in my area ( Central FLORIDA) and at the end of each day some food stoes in the deli or bakery discount the food about 60-70%.. I was told Panera restaurant, sells all their baked goods more then half price right before closing too. Also Farm stands and at flea markets you can get fresh fruits and vegetable cheaper then stores. Some farms allow you to pick your own cheaper or you can buy already picked about $1.00 more per package/box. I buy in bulk and freeze meat and vegetables, it is much cheaper in every way. Just use freezer bags. OR get some neighbors or friends together and buy in bulk sharing the larger containers , this is something I do with two widowed ladies. You can also look into “Food Share programs” in most states usually ran by churches. You do NOT have to be a member of the church. Join their food program. It is where they might have 200 families or people and buy in BULK, every week . You pay about 40-60% less due o them buying in bulk. they have several packages to chose from and do take food stamps if you get them. They do ask you to help a couple hours bagging the food per month unless you’re disabled. Our church has them and its great and fresh foods veggies and fruits fish meat etc. ASK the managers at your local stores what they discount before closing each day , most are perishable foods or older vegetables and fruits. Deli and bakery items too. Good luck, from senior to senior. As for making EXTRA cash, there are several companies that list online for people to rent a extra bedroom a night or two cheaper then a Hotel, Google it. Some make extra $50 per night-$250 for a night or two.,three. Iron clothes, sew, babysite . Young couples love elderly grandmas as sitter these days. Hugs
    1. Hey I always ask a head of time b4 I buy . Dunking donuts variety stores 5 % or 10% Always Ask.
  8. You are so right plus I think their ice cream and cream cheese cakes are better than named brand. Good food better low prices. Bring a quarter rent your cart and enjoy your shopping! Love ALDI”$!!!!❤
    1. If Kroger’s is not giving Seniors a discount anymore I will shop elsewhere. I have not only shopped there for (48 yrs) and worked there for 9 years. KROGERS YOUR GOING TO LOSE A LOT OF CUSTOMERS. When you live on a fixed. Income those little discounts help more than some know. ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? I guess I will have to shop at Save A lot. Bye bye KROGER. ?
      1. I had no idea grocery stores are offering discounts to seniors. I live in central New York and do a lot of my shopping at Wegmans. I am not aware of any senior discounts at their stores.
        1. I do not about but Florida Walgreen’s here offer a seniors discount I believe on Tuesdays. Ask them if it us every Tuesday or only once a month. I think it us every Tuesday.
  9. I don’t care about clothing store discounts. I’m retired, I don’t need to refresh or revamp my wardrobe. I’m not impressed with 5% or even 10% off at a fast food place. I usually cook at home. But a good discount at a grocery store would be very beneficial. FYI, I stopped shopping at Kroger and shop at Save A Lot because, I get twice as many groceries at Save A Lot for the sane amount of money.
    1. Aldis has a lot more fresh vegs.& selection in smaller packages then save-a-lot.bring a quarter 4 buggy, to get it back or give to another senior.brihg your bags.if one around.i highly recommend it.
      1. Love shopping in smaller grocery stores and Fresh Thyme in Nebraska really excellent for better produce and cheaper produce. It doesn’t have everything I personally need. It is very efficient for the things older handicapped people buy. Judy Tuhy
  10. I just recently retired and I am very worried about how me and my husband are gonna make it. He is on a lot of medication. I have animals that I have to take care of and of course us. I am currently looking for a part-time job but I can’t make over $1470 a month because I will be penalized for it. I am praying I can find a way around this.
    1. Mrs. Baker; go online and look for part-time jobs for senior citizens in your area. Some are “work from home” part- time. Hope this tidbit of information helps you. May God bless you and your family. HAVE A BLESSED DAY Ms. Bea
    2. most towns have really good food banks that give food away. If you ask around you can find them. Of course some are better than others but if you are diligent and patient you can find the best ones and most of them give primo food. Ours has organic fresh vegetables. One of the ones here actually has a garden that they give food from.
    3. 1. Ask your doctor if he has a discount coupon for each of your particular medicines. Many have coupons. If not, find out from pharmacy or doctor if there is a comparable medicine that is less expensive. 2. You can contact the drug manufacture for your particular medicine and see if they offer a discount card. One of my expensive medicines does and I wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise. Many manufacturers offer discounts. 3. Join a senior center and develop people to share retirement issues with. Also find out what resources they use to survive on retirement pay. 4. If your husband was in military, find out what benefits he is eligible to receive – there are many. 5. Find out what stores and restaurants have senior discounts, and which days. 6. Be creative and proactive and enjoy your resourcefulness! Develop this list until you are satisfied (actually, I never stop.) You can do it! 🙂
  11. why is it we get told that when we turn 65 that we would be able to receive all types of discounts and now i’am at that golden age … seems like a lot of BS and the larger and more successful stores just shut us out while their profits just seem to get larger . am I the only one who feels this way? ,and what about the gasoline prices?… I guess that’s a typical and daily occurrence here in my home state …. sincerely TV
    1. No, in My opinion, We Seniors Have Great Power United, if one of us (Seniors) went to a Grocery store, for ex. ” And found out that that store did not honor Seniors on any day,” and said that out loud, but in conversation, and other Seniors heard it, I really do think it would have affect on Management, for positive reconsideration.I went to Harbor Freight brought a couple of items, and asked if they honored Military Veterans, the clerk told me No! The place was full of Vets, I got a 10% discount.
      1. YAY! For you, Floyd! If anyone should receive honorary discounts, all of our Military Veterans should receive at least 15% to 25% every day of the week, and not just on certain holidays. When our Military Veterans were in the service, they were active where ever, whenever they were needed, they didn’t get to choose. American businesses have done very well for themselves across the board, for a long time, American business would do well to start (and continue) to give back to our Military Veterans consistently, not JUST for the annual business TAX WRITE OFF.
        1. I agree BD Sherman. I am a senior ona very low fixed income but i would gladly give up my discount if stores a other public places would honor our Service men as the should.
        2. Thank you. Some places do give us 15%. I could be wrong but it seems like Denny’s gives me 15%. I’m not the sharpest shed in the toolbox when it comes to paying attention. In fact when I try to pay attention I usually end up w an overdraft notice! ? Of course being blessed w ADHD has its challenges. Especially since they didn’t figure out my brain was wired bkwds until about age 50. ? In the meantime I also use AMAC bc I’m tired of AARP’s left bent politics which contradicts my constitutional conservativism. Just saying. Have a wonderful day.
    2. I think ALL the stores should give a discount to ALL seniors no matter what day it is!!!! There is a store where I live only gives discounts on Tuesday’s but sometimes people don’t get there checks untill the end of the week of that month. I very seldom getting take advantage of the discounts because by the time I pay my bill there is nothing left.l
      1. So dame true I live in Reno NV there are no discount im 75 years old, stores her don’t give a crap about Seniors, it’s hard to make it to the end of the month, but it’s all about CEO not the people who pay their salary.
        1. I live in Friendship area of Pittsburgh and once monthly rec 3 ice a Senior box with non perishable food. The food gives everyone free food once a month. For both of these food programs you must qualify because there is a monthly limit of $1,518 . For receiving good for free it’s really great for everyone but especially for Senios on a fixed income. Both programs are sponsored by Community Food Bank
        2. Tg I was under the impression that I after recently turning 66 can work fulltime hours without being penalized at the end of the year. I will be expected to pay taxes for my earnings. Was I misinformed. A representative from the social security office told me this and gave me a sheet with the scales listed on them. Someone please help me get an answer Now I am not sure what to believe
      2. Try Publix,they hire part time workers, few days a week available. Especially seniors students, and the disabled.
      3. I had no idea grocery stores are offering discounts to seniors. I live in central New York and do a lot of my shopping at Wegmans. I am not aware of any senior discounts at their stores.
    3. Boston is cheap with us seniors! Wish I could find one grocery store like ( stop&shop or Star) that would give us a break
      1. Everything is expensive in the New England states. You need to get on South 95 and go about 1400 miles, until you reach a place call Florida. No grocery food taxes.
        1. But the cost of living is higher and does not offset any discounts. I lived there 7 years and the price of gas & groceries was much higher than I was accustomed to paying in Gergia.
          1. I have family in IN an d the cost of health insurance even for HMO’ s cost so much more than in TO. I have Humana here an d it had so many new benefits this year that I switched from the plan I had last year which had better then. You still need to go to as many different plan presentations each year as there can be suginigent changes you may want to change plans. We even have some plans that give you some or all of the part B cost.
    4. Yes..and also the politicians talk about raising minimum wage..but that doesn’t help those of us on fixed incomes..especially fixed low incomes..and finding decent low income housing is especially hard…when I find a nice place..the waiting list is as much as 10 years..I live in a house that I can no longer deal should also have senior discounts.
      1. I’m 62 and my wonderful husband is 72. We are on a fixed income and manage ok. What’s killing us is the rental increases…up $700 in just five years. There is no rental cap where we are although there is in the adjoining county. We have talked about selling everything and buying a large travel trailer. Perhaps going south for warmer weather. We even thought about going to Costa Rica…probably silly thinking. It all would be harder now … I have severe rheumatoid arthritis and it has put me in a wheelchair. My hubby takes good care of me but he has kidney disease and other problems that stem from agent Orange exposure. He was one of those brave men who fought where and when they were told and some are still fighting for what they are entitled to. He told me a little bit about Viet jam but one thing that really sticks with me is knowing there were nights he sat in a ditch in the rain and supper was a can of Vienna sausage or beans. No fires so no not food. So please think of this when you see a vet of any generation but especially Viet nam…they are among our oldest living combat soldiers now. Buy them a meal or a beer or a cup of coffee…talk abit if they seem to need it. Maybe not about the war…for some it’s hard…but I’ve discovered that it is seldom these guys don’t have a good story…God bless them and the country they served without question. ??
  12. I’m reading all of these comments about getting discounts at fast food restaurants and thinking: just stay at home and cook a healthy meals and you’ll save more in every way you can think of.
    1. #1. It is important for senior citizens to get up and out of the house for a number of reasons : (1) To get some fresh air. (2). To get some exercise, even if it is just a walk. (3). To socialize. A lot of their friends are no longer there. Some have passed away, some have moved (To Nursing homes, Assisted living facilities, to be nearer their relatives, etc.). (4). Even people with limited incomes like to go out & eat occasionally, to try something different, a change of scenery, etc. (5). Any activity is better than no activity. (6). Everything in moderation. For most healthy senior citizens, it won’t kill them to occasionally go out & eat at a fast food restaurant, to occasionally go out to a bar for drink (It doesn’t have to have alcohol in it, pop or soda, juices, coffee, & their are a lot of mixed drinks and even beer that doesn’t have alcohol. ) to shoot some pool, play cards, dance to the old juke box, visit with people, or live entertainment.
      1. I agree with the previous woman who stated that your statements were well put. It is so important to be out and about and for it to be affordable. As a side note I also feel it is major when you learn something that can be valuable to us all “pass it forward”.
  13. I live in Minnesota, the good wills and savers all have discounts for folks that 55 + but I don’t know what dates they are. Mike’s Discount Foods in all locations on Tuesdays have a discount of 10% when a senior is 60 and older.
      1. Was hesitant with Taco Bell, but every one is quick with a 10% Senior Discount (&/or a soft drink). Ted K. Ohio
      2. Is this my old friend Penny Clark from Mesa, AZ? If so, give me a call – you have my number. Ken
    1. Rosetta W., I also live in Minnesota, in the Twin Cities area. Good Will has 25% off all green, yellow, pink and blue tags every Wednesday. Thanks for mentioning Mike’s, I thought they had all closed, will have to take a closer look now.
    1. None in Calif. Either. Staters is a HUGE food store out here and discounts nothing for seniors!! The other stores mentioned don’t even exist here. We pay above what other states do on just about everything we buy. I’ve lived here most of my life, so had my spouse and many of our friends. Now In our 70’s , money is so tight we stay home all day and struggle to just keep utilities on, no eating out. I do wish we had left Calif yrs ago but we each were caregivers for our parents back then. We now take advantage of free home repair program and I go to the food give away program each week. It’s not much but it helps.
      1. Krogers is called Ralphs here. But of course they stopped giving discounts. Maybe some of the others listed have a different name in California, just as brand names change geographically [e.g., Hellmans = Best Foods]. It never hurts to ask at the front desk of any store.
      2. Thank you for your comment on giving us seniors a reminder how the government didn’t give us a raise last time we needed one. They said the cost of living had not gone up. I would like to know why they thought that especially when I look at my water bill, gas at the fuel pumps of power bill for heating or electric meter at home.I bet the politicals have some to pay their bill or we are paying them to much or absorbing their bills for them! P.S. I heard our Mayor and City manager were making in the $300,000 ranges. Which is rediculouse
  15. These are mainly EAST COAST/SOUTHE RN markets. What about the West coast, more importantly, Eastern Washington State?? Whaaa we always get left out!
  16. I live in Ohio and there are all kinds of churches here that regularly have free dinners and even give out food to take home, we also have food banks and food pantries that give free food and community organizations that you can get referrals every month to get free food at pantries and churches. We also have senior organizations like meals on wheels that will help seniors with food. So instead of worrying about discounts at stores seek out info in your community where you can get FREE food!
  17. What would help a lot of people would be if businesses somehow let ppl know they offer discounts to seniors or military. I just recently dined at a restaurant that had such notice printed on the menu – though that was wonderful. I certainly do not begrudge our military service members some discounts but it would be nice to sometimes get some relief on my bills. I, unfortunately, was not able to serve in the military. I did go to enlist but was medically deferred from all four branches so I now struggle to make ends meet at 60 with no hope at all to ever retire – there just is no money so I will get to die at a desk.
    1. Gosh, Mike, this is terrible! Have you considered getting a roommate to help share expenses? I did – I found a young gay man, half my age who was destitute and going them a breakup. We formed an Intergenerational Housing Alliance. He cuts the grass, does all the lifting and shopping. I cook and do laundry, he works full time. He is just the sweetest man you would ever want to meet. And, due to age and identity, there is no pressure on either side if you catch my drift, good luck to you!
    2. In my Opinion, In respect to your concern, I support the fact, that 65years, and Older qualifies, since we are Still in the land of the living and we Still posses purchasing power, We have that right to honored discounts in this society in which we live, and We as a People set that standard.
    1. I agree. I do all my shopping at Walmart’s and the only disciunts are only on markdowns on the shelves. No circulars in the local newspapers or in the store pertaining to store weekly sales like other supermarkets.
      1. Living on a Single Fixed income is more and more difficult due to the increasing cost of all necessities ,Keep LOOK N UP! We are the children of the depression, WWII, the dust bowl,c’mon we can work through it ALL!
    2. All of them should, especially, for most of the Shoppers are Seniors,In my Opinion, a 10% discount on a specific day , will not break a Giant.
  18. If most stores faced, at least, a 20% boycott every single day, just because angry customers rejected their “no more discounts, policy”, it is a likely chance they would re-install them. Why? Their bottom line is “maximizing profits” Why would they go against the grain? Some people think that seniors want it all. Corporate busnesses have it all, and then some.
      1. There all over the place I moved from NY to NC and family dollar and 99 cent stores are in both states .on the way I stopped in Delaware and Va. and there too.
        1. I think that all stores should have Discounts for Seniors in every State. I’m 75 and I live in Georgia. We have Dollar Tree and Dollar General Stores every where. It really does help.
    1. I used to work as an accountant in retail and know it is not as simple as many think. Take a look at the giants such as Wards, Kmart and Sears to name a few of those giants. I don’t remember ever getting any discounts from any of them and now they are either gone or going.
      1. And more are going. They can’t compete with Amazon and other online lower prices. As for Sears, it was a shame that it wasn’t managed better. And Pennys too.
  19. I live in Arizona & we have Dollar Tree & Family Dollar here & we also have 99 cent stores where just about everything is 99 cents. I get my fruits & vegetables there & a lot of my canned goods. It certainly saves on the grocery bill. I heard that Arizona is the only state that has those stores.
      1. Iowa has Dollar Tree Stores, General Dollar Stores and Family Dollar Stores. It also has gently used store (ie Stuff) were a person can find other types of items for the home and yourself at very reasonable prices. I am in the young “70’s” and find items in these stores that help my budget out. I hope this helps. SunShine Pattie in DBQ, IA
    1. Oregon has Dollar Tree. They’re pretty much everywhere from the YouTube haul I watch. Oregon also has Dollar General.
      1. I asked my daughter whom lives in Oceanside, CA and she said they don’t have family Dollar or dollar general. They do have dollar tree!
        1. I’m sorry, but I would not shop at Walmart if they did give a senior discount. Many of their prices are no better than any other marketplace. Sometimes their prices are even higher. The only problem is the rural area where I live, the only available shopping is at Walmart or drive 30 miles or more to the first available grocery store.
        2. The Family Dollar Store at 2400 Coffee Rd in Modesto has 5-star reviews for customer service. There are also many Dollar Tree stores you can look up in your local phone book or Google.
    2. Family Dollar stores are about everywhere. If they’re in this small WV town they’re everywhere. And very helpful on a tight budget.
    3. I read the comment from the lady in Arizona. I live in Pennsylvania and we too have both store here in my state. Honestly, many times I live on food from the Dollar Store.
    4. The state of Missouri has both Dollar General , Family Dollar and Dollar Tree almost on every corner.
    5. IAM live in Alabama we have dollar tree in town yes it’s is great in many ways but sometimes you don’t really save in money ,because most of the products sold are smaller,in oz ,lb, you may pay a 1. 00 for frozen berries ,but only get 8oz I can go to Greer’s and get 16oz bag of berries for 1.00
    6. Not true, the great state of Oregon also has Dollar tree ?as well as Grocery Outlets thru out the state!! As a senior citizen myself,I completely agree with you! Those stores are a true blessing for those of us who are not filthy rich! It allows us to stretch out our meager dollars to not feel so second class! It’s unfortunate that ANY senior citizen should struggle thru their golden years of life! Most of us have worked our fingers and backs to the bone,only to receive the shitty and of the stick at the end of it! A lot of countries honor their elders, for their wisdom, experience of life and love for mankind and family members! The United States has a lot of catching up to do in that department! Thank God for our discount stores, and I really mean that, without you a lot of folks would have no choice but to go without!!!!!
    7. My brother lives in Arizona and loves it there. I live in Georgia and we have a Dollar Tree but understand they are going out of business. So glad for you and the other older people like us.
    8. I live in Alabama, we have The Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Fred’s and a few Family Dollar’s left.
    9. There are Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar stores all over Oklahoma and Texas. FYI. Dollar Gen’rl and Family Dollar stores belong to the same family; two brothers in business together, but each doing business under different store names. On adverage, these stores cost as much to shop as going to Walmart.
    10. there are dollar tree , dollar general, and family dollar stores pretty much all around Missouri.
    11. Linda., I live in Pineville La. We have Dollar Tree, Dollar General. The Family Dollar is closing the stores here.
  20. Not one of the stores on your list are in my driving area, or even in the state of Vermont. This just isn’t fair to me or thousands of other Vermonter’s. What’s your excuse for this?
    1. I agree, why to bother to tell people about these wonderful discounts when they do not apply. Just send them to their valid place only!!!
    2. Here is an idea, get off the victum wagon and find your own discounts. You could always share them with others, No one cares about Vermont, just like Vermont has never expressed concern about any other state.
      1. Not in southern Florida. I was a cashier a in southern Florida . I was told that we Do NOT give senior discounts nor military discounts.
    1. Everywhere I go I always ask if they have senior discounts. I was surprised at a couple places that had them. Jack In the Box restaurants have senior discounts but only if you go inside, not at the drive thru. Carl’s Jr has 10% discount at the drive thru as well as inside. Great Clips hair salons have discounts & have it posted. Most salons & barbershops have discounts. All you have to do is ask.
      1. Or North Carolina.I go for buy one get one if the price right. Otherwise the prices go up on something every time I go.I can’t afford to shop here weekly. Thank God for Aldi for fresh fruits and veggies
    2. I worked for Publix for 14 years in Florida. Their home office is in Lakeland, Florida. Mr. Jenkins, founder of Publix would be saddened. The new generation to the board of directors are all about money. They even took alot from their employees. I’m not surprised that they do not help seniors, they ignore veterans as well. Very sad. I think everyone should send an email to their corporate offices.
      1. We use to have the Publix every Wed. But they stopped it said the do the buy one get one free to help all people. ?
  21. I’ve been a resident of the United States since I was 5 years old. My parents immigrated from Cuba in the early fifties. We have always resided in Florida. My parents were hardworkimg people who never received any governmental benefits. Everything we obtained was through their hard work. What bothers me now is that all the new immigrants receive some sort of benefits (Medicaid, free housing, food stamps, financial aid, etc.) They even work under the table and do not pay taxes, but nevertheless, they manage to send their money to Cuba. It is a fact that they collect retirement benefits and manage to send the monies they receive from the government to purchase properties in Cuba and rent those houses to the tourists for additional monies while they remain here collecting benefits and making themselves rich in a communist country. Any available family that remains there receive the monies via traveler’s check or cash that is is sent to Cuba via visitors who take their money for a fee. Do you think this government acknowledge these practices? What is the purpose of not putting these practices out-of circulation? This government also know about the drug trafficking between Cuba, South American countries, including Mexico, and yet do nothing about it. There is a lot of talk and no action. They claim that the embargo takes care of all of these practices. How can the embargo work when Cuba has relationships with other countries and allow some Cubans to travel to third countries to purchase goods. How do they allow Americans to go hungry, do not provide financial aid for their kids, retirees and good, hard-working people to be with complete health-care coverage, allowances for their mortgages and sufficient food allowance. We are looked as nothing, they do look at us as people from third world countries. It is very sad. I am glad to say that my family and us are law abiding citizens, hard-working people and citizens of this great country, who thank all the veterans who fought for us to live with freedom, and pray that they reconsider their attitudes and treat us like equals.
    1. What you related was an eye opener for me I did not know these practices were going on under USA watchful eyes (or rather closing their eyes to it) . No wonder children ad elderly are going hungry in this rich nation. It is a sin what American government allows to happen to its deserving citizens.
    2. You are an AMERICAN just like the rest of us. Don’t ever let anybody tell you that you are a third country person.
      1. I hope all you concerned citizens know how your state, federal representatives vote on these issues. That is where you go to put pressure on the people who legislate our states and federal governments. Read their platforms before voting for them. When they hear what issues are important to the everyday folks, they either change or should be voted out. They certainly get an adequate salary and far above the average worker here. I believe they should have terms limits and no retirement or medical benefits when they retire or not voted in the next term. Keep our legislature honest, as it is an honor to serve the people, not a career.
        1. I agree–DON’T stand on the sidelines.Know what your representatives stand for !!!!! LOTS of them say one thing and do the reverse !!!!! YOU must get involved in order to make changes in our government !!!!!! They are lots of ways—check into it.Term limits are a MUST !!! Seems everybody is investigating TRIVAL things INSTEAD of doing the JOB–That we sent them to Washington TO DO !!!!! Forget the TWO Parties—-DO what is best for AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    3. I live in Oklshoma. No senior discounts are offered at any grocery stores. Being on Medicare means Big Pharma is not allowed to assist us(Thsnks to federal government not able to negotiate contracts with them).Discounts are offered by car dealers, clothing stores and fast foods., restaurants and hospital cafeterias.
    1. In Las Vegas SMITH’s and Albertson’s have specials on Friday a lot of things for 5$ some cereal 5 boxes for 5$ eggs under2$/dz some of the churches have food pantries during the week
      1. Billions of dollars worth of profits?! Heck No! Don’t let them fog your brain with petty excuses. It’s a wealth-producing industry. They can afford discounts for all seniors! Tell them off.
  22. Are there any stores or discount stores in Texas for the elderly? There was one that I found out bout and then they stopped! It is so hard to make a go on a one income family, groc, gas, electric, and doctors,and meds? Hints if anyone has any, we have Ins, but even paying for it and then the money you have to pay even before seeing a Doctor or being put into the hospital???? Someone needs to do something, my husband and I both work and our children are grown, and we even have great grandchildren now! We are both retirement age and my husband works 10 to 12 hours a day, 5 to 6 days a week!!!!! We use all the income each week for gas, upkeep on our car, groceries, medicines, taxes, and etc. What are hard working people doing, never had any help from government of any kind! Hope we never have too! We just do without, lived on red beans, cornbread, and sometime butterballed potatoes, or corn. That was our meals sometimes every other day of the week, then the other days were peanut butter jelly sandwiches! I ld hate to see the children of now days to live off what we have in our home with 2 children. Not easy, but our children are grown now and both married and families of their own! I mean the government need to give the older people a little more help in their elderyears ! I mean some type of break, on grocies, gas, electric bills, and so on! HELP! Government!!!!!!!!
    1. I live on 934 a month they took my food stamps down from 87dollars to 15 dollars… What the heck. I have worked hard my whole life and this is what I get. Not right. I know people who lie and they get 500 dollars a month in food stamps. I know a house hold that has 2 people in it and they are drawing 1000 dollars a month in food stamps.
      1. I totally agree. I think some of our government officials should have to come down off of their high horses and try to live off of this missely amount of money. It is hell trying to decide what medications you can go without that month just so you can buy a little food for the month. I have to be on oxygen 24/7 which I have to pay $50 dollars a month for plus my other Bill’s. Let me tell you the golden years are no longer, it’s more like the stressed and depressed years
      2. We moved to Michigan in the early 50s, I was 10, and other families (aunts and uncles and families) move here also, due to few jobs in WVa, and factories were hiring here. I remember as the years slipped by that some had medical issues that prevented them from working. They received monthly help “Commodities”. From what I understood, the government paid farmers and food was packaged and stored. This helped the farmers and was a Real Big to the people that needed it. They had 5# package of cheese, 5# package of meats, 5# box of dry milk and lots of other items of food. I don’t remember what all was in the boxes, it’s been a long time ago! I do not know the whys or hows this was done, but it worked, but they were all very happy when they received the food. I remembered in the 60s that the foundry where my husband worked was on strike and had $25. from the union. Food was MUCH CHEAPER then, but wages were MUCH LOWER too! There was a butcher shop a few miles away. I went and got the cheapest meat, cow heart. Came home cleaned and removed the membrane, sliced and pounded it dipped it in flour and fried it. Told the family it was steak! We never qualified for Food Stamps. Now people come from other places and sponsor their family members to come put them on Food Stamps, medical, dental, housing and they would have 7 to 10 people in a small apartment, all types of government help. Find them jobs for anyone old enough to work and still on welfare! We are now retired, and I care for my husband 24/7 after his stroke. I shop at Salvation Army on the last Tuesday of the month for half-price sale, find all kinds of stuff there for half price off regular low prices jean $3 to $5, I have found brand new items with the tags still on them. Lately, I have been putting on weight, found 5 pair like new jeans all for less than $10.00, I am very picky, look it over carefully, I only purchase what I need, wood to build a gate for the top of the stairs, I have learned how to do a lot of stuff after his stroke.
    2. Well, thanks for letting me know. My husband says we should get them. I’m still working, but, he is unable to. And, we are both 70 years old. Thanks, anyway.
  23. My opinion is that anyone who is a military vet or has worked to protect this country should be given every discount possible along with FREE HOUSING FOR LIFE. I am not a military person and have had relatives who were that came back after serving multiple tours and worked daily jobs. I am 61 years old and still employed as an elementary teacher in Los Angeles County, CA. I believe that once a person reaches 70 years of life they also should be given a 25% discount on everything. Discounts are a blessing. This just shows me that people in the business arena have hearts!
      1. Wore the uniform ? Free housing for life ? I’m retired ARMY……..honored to wear the uniform and serve with great (and some not so great) people who defend our freedom. But FREE Housing is a bit of a stretch. Somebody (probably young workers) would have to pay for it, and the opportunity for corruption and abuse would be huge. The journey is more important than the destination. Keep working, earn, pay, socialize, live, enjoy………’s all part of the process. And FAST FOOD discounts are an invitation to hurt your individual health. None of you should be looking for a discount to unhealthy food places.
        1. Agree. Free housing for vets would be cost prohibited . My husband served in Viet Nam and has Chrons from Agent Orange. He is in the waiting hell
          1. I totally agree we need to take care of our vets. Depending on their personal situation maybe they do deserve free housing. Other are able to work. My grandfather served in WW1 and was gassed and later died from illnesses he got from being gassed in the first place. My father served at the end of WW2 and when he passed my mother got none of the benefits because all his records were destroyed in a fire and all she had was a picture of him with no platoon, which of course does not mean anything to the military. A few years later my sister found his dog tags and called to see if my mother could now get the benefits she deserved and could my father get the recognition he deserves at his gravesite, still nothing. These men and women who served and are serving should be treated much better and at the very least their medical condition should be looked after no matter what.
          2. I’m very sorry for what you’re going through do you live near or can call Veterans for help my cousin had it too was in Vietnam also know what you’re going through hope the Veterans give you pension to. Help you ??
          1. Veterans so graciously served for our country. Now it’s time for our country to serve us.
          2. Yes indeed that’s something I agree with and it should be a law passed to implement the problem for our vets.
          3. Did your mother contact the Veteran Administration directly? Where were his records lost?.Surely she can get some help. Have her office and speak to an agent tjere. I pray she can get some help and God bless you all
          4. As a disabled veteran I don’t think I deserve everything for free or with a discount. I am grateful to those companies that do offer us and seniors (I qualify there too) for their acknowledgments. If you have issues or don’t know where to go for help, look locally for a DAV (Disabled American Veterans) office and they will give you the assistance you need. Hope this is beneficial.
        2. great response!!! – people tend to forget there is nothing thats for free out there – someone is paying for it somewhere.
        3. Well said. I’m 69, non-military but consider that my children who are raising their children and hope to send them to college would be paying the bill.
        4. I am 74 served US Army 1962 to 1964.served the best I could combat engineer. Glad I missed. Viet Nam even though I put in for transfer 2 of my good friends were there. That’s were Davey met his end, he was a good friend most of school & we lived across the from each other thru the trees no street there. Probably still no street
        1. The Korean war vets could apply for a disability pension. I’m not sure it’s still available, but, I know it’s true because my father got one till the day he died. So did quite a few vets in Toledo, Ohio after my dad spread the word among the vfw . Everyone we told were afraid to even try until they finally saw saw my father’s check!! There was a fund that the gov could not use one penny of but only for Korean vets that no one knew about. If there are any Korean war vets out there anymore go directly to your local vets insurance office.
      2. There were alot of men & women potecting our country one way or the other, do we all deserve free housing, that might be a little far fetched!
      3. I don’t agree that ALL service people should get free stuff only if they served in a war zone.I was married 23 years to a serviceman and was suppose to receive a portion of his retirement benifits but he lied said the military stopped that and I don’t know why but I believed him..I am on SS only and receive 1790/month Thank God I do have TRICARE for LIFE so my medication only cost me 7$ each
    1. I agree with you totally Lynn… Will you please run for president??? It is a blessing to see that another person thinks like I do… Vets have to fight for proper health care… Now with this open burn pit they were exposed to when they were deployed is the new Agent Orange & they are refused treatment… What is wrong with our government??? My heart is broken for the Vet’s and Seniors… God bless America and God bless us….
      1. Yep, I have applied for compensation for exposure to agent orange. Have leukemia because of it. Claim is in but when we call we are always told that it is still being investigated although I am told that I am eligible for benefits. I am so tired. Constantly tired. I want to do so much but can’t.
        1. This is getting ridiculous —— I’m not sure who your contact person is at the VA, but he or she is not doing their job. And, it is a job for which they are being paid. From what I understand appox. 60k/yr. You need a new contact. I know there are a number of agencies – such as Catholic War Veterans & Jewish War Veterans that can help you and get the benefits you deserve. Look them up or check them out at your VA hospital. Usually, they are paid a minimum for their facilities or they are volunteers who are very serious about obtaining benefits for veterans. You will have to make an appointment with them and bring all your medicals, discharge papers, etc. When you call they will tell you exactly what you need. I hope this helps. If not contact our President. He is working for Vets and all of us. Calling your Congress person may not help since they are not working for Americans at this time. Best of Luck
      2. Our Government sucks that is what’s wrong. They always say there is no money. And the drugs and all illegal stuff going on, money probably going into the political pockets. The help for everyone is getting less and less all the time. I wonder how many of these politicians have been in the military or visited a warzone. The Government even controls the farming industry today and you can’t even get good food anymore. It’s really a shame. I am so sorry for all of you ex-military who can’t get what you are entitled to. God Bless You all.
    2. As a Veteran, i deeply appreciate your sentiment. But we must all be vigilant that in our haste to do good we do not let the Government control too much of our lives. Socialism is not free, it comes at a steep cost to our freedoms and ability to produce an income for ourselves. Serving the country was a great honor for me. It is what I believe I owed this country and my family, to help keep this country free for my future descendants. I would never want my service to be used as a reason to lessen those freedoms by taking money from others to make my life easier when I am able bodied and ready to make a living for my self. That cost is much too high for me.
      1. Thank you .Im 78 soon and I will never forget the lecture from my Father .You will never get anything from the government that’s free someone somewhere will pay. Thank you for your service Jerry USMC 1960/66
        1. Except the government that has the best pay and free healthcare for life. I feel that our service people should be permitted at least free or 75% reduction on health care along with middle class making only $50,000 a year or less. It’s time for the government to step up and get after the drug and insurance companies that are raping our economy.
          1. I agree that the drug company’s are over pricing drugs that are keeping the men and women veterans alive and we’ll enough to function to do there daily chorse to servive!!! USMC 1976-80
          2. Where is the money going to come from this country is broke 23 trillion in debt and climbing rapidly I’m a Vietnam vet 68-69 we have let the politicians run wild we need 2 term limits this will save. We need balanced budget. We have to stop spending we could be the next Greece. Ugly thought
          3. Neither government employees nor elected officials get “free healthcare for life”. It is a very simple matter to use Google to find out the truth.
        1. Rj stuart, You asked where the money would come from. How about the politictians taking a big cut in pay? They all keep voting themselves raises but I don’t see them giving vets or seniors more money. They have 2 & some 3 houses, several new cars every year or other year, take extended vacations (on the public), traveling first class & staying first class all the way. When they retire they continue to get the same amount of pay each year & yes their continued health care is paid for by the government (via our pockets). Nothing is free or even discounted for vets or seniors. Why do you think so many of them are homeless. Now that IS a disgrace. Our government should be ashamed to let that happen & even continue to let it go on. Also RJ, we wouldn’t be in such a BIG debt of we would stop handing out money to every country that ask for it & then NEVER pay it back. If our government would start collecting back the debts these countries owed us we could get our homeless vets & seniors off the streets & even feed the hungry. My father, uncle, ex husband & most of all my friends, male & female, are vets & they were never handed anything. Most never even got most of their benefits, not from lack of trying. My father, uncle & a couple of my friends died without seeing all the benefits that they deserved. But I bet those politictians & the rich didn’t go without theirs. Again SHAME on the government for not helping out the people that fought for this country so those people could have those benefits. Thank you all for your service & for keeping me in a free country. I don’t know what we would have done without you & your service.
    3. I get what you’re saying but I have questions and observations. Q1) who would (not should) pay for all the free? Tax dollars only go so far. You left out police, fire fighters, teachers, other working civil servants… Q2) and why 70? Let’s say you get your wishes and I have an opinion about your wish. I would say only those in active combat situation – because most of them (us) volunteer and qualify (Seal, GBs, PJ, CM, etc). Observation1, based on 35plus years of working with/in Services, DoD and the IC. Most, not all members of the voluntary forces, but a majority others were/are looking for a better life and CHOSE the Military as that vehicle – rightfully so. As a culture, like those who survived and even excelled during the depression, we need to start paying for the choices we make. Karl Marx was/is wrong Socialism (and it’s variants) doesn’t work and has yet to work – ask Venezuela (and there are other failed examples – Argentina). Peace
    4. Mrs Taylor, I’m a veteran of a few armed conflicts. I was part of the initial invasion by Special Forces soldiers into Afghanistan back in October of 2001 (“Task Force Dagger”). And, am touched that many citizens appreciate us that much. I never really gave any thought to being treated any differently than any other law abiding citizen. To me, it was just my time. It was now MY turn to take RESPONSIBILITY (not job) to protect our country. And, to take something to the enemies doorstep, that was far beyond what their mind could have ever comprehended. We did you proud. That’s a promise. Yes, I’m 100 percent disabled now (unemployable), and am unable to work the most menial of jobs. It’s very embarrassing to go from being a Green Beret who could be sent anywhere in the world to take care of anyone else that needed help. Just, to come home and become a broken up gimp who feels he has no worth. There was a time when I had very lucrative job offers given to me if I wanted them. But then, all of a sudden the ability to function physically and mentally, got taken. BUT, IT’S OK..I PROMISE YOU, THAT IT’S OK…Even knowing the consequences, I would do it all over again without hesitation. Our children and grandchildren deserve to right to enjoy the freedoms that we’ve had. Freedom is not a God given right. It’s a God given opportunity. It has been, and will always be up to us to give our posterity that right. And you know what that entails. Of course, getting discounts is really nice. Especially, when your on a fixed income. But, I’ve never expected it from anyone. None of us did what we did for any financial gain. And, I know that you know this… We love our country and it citizens too much, to expect anything from them. My only wish is that I had my health and my family back. That’s all. And, of course, that the VA would at least give half an effort. Many thanks to you, and other like you, that want the best for us. To me…THAT’S GRATITUDE ENOUGH. It only solidifies my loyalty and gratitude to this great nation and it’s citizens. That torch of responsibility has now been passed down to my oldest son and son in law. I just pray to God that they never have to be a part of such inhumane things that we experienced. Again, THANKS for caring so much. It’s much appreciated. We’ll have to see how the discounts go. Either way, it’ll be ok…Last, thing. We didn’t half way do our jobs, nor did we give the enemy any discounts…lol. Thanks to all of you grateful Americans and what you do for us. You’re kindness will never be forgotten.
      1. Thank you for your service and for submitting you heartfelt message. Prayers daily for our military as I ,Experience many are leaders where ever they call home
      2. what can anyone do to help you even in a small way….where are you located ….there is help out there and retired folks who would love to reach out to you…yes, I know it is hard to let others in on your needs but they have the need to help
      3. Mr. Pearson, I will thank God every day for you and your family. You brought tears to my heart. Thank you so much for your service to protect my freedom and my families freedom. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help you in any way please let me know! Your story really touched my heart. My husband and I are seniors, he served his country and never received anything, not even medical services, but we never let it affect us. We will survive thanks to God, because he is our sufficiency, no the US Army! That’s where we stand. It gets hard at times, but we pull through with a happy heart!! God bless you Christopher.
      4. I’m so, so PROUD of you, you make me think of the song I’m Proud to be an American. I’m Sorry you came back messed up.. Like so many others.. I lost my cousin in Vietnam. He was22. I wear the Pow/Mia bracelet with another soldiers name on it he was 22. Since 1972.?
      5. Thank you for your service. It’s people like you that do our country proud. Again, Thank you!
    6. Agreed in principle but let’s not overdo it. They are people, not God’s. Most never face combat. Yes, reward them, but don’t give away the store. There are many non-military people that need help to let’s not forget them in a rush to try to make Heroes out of anyone who ever signed up for the military. You can be a deserving person who needs assistance without ever served in the military. Everyone deserves some help occasionally not just soldiers.
    7. Free housing for life who pays that? Not economically possible this country is broke biggest drain on the economy is illegals
  24. I live in Southern California and the only name on that list that is out here is Kroger.Why Is this list so East Coast bias.If that is not it then why aren’t more out here?
    1. It is Southeastern US. None of the listed stores are located in Massachusetts nor any other New England state.
      1. I live in the southwest, Henderson, NV 89014 & there isn’t one of those stores on the list out here!! Burger King gave a 10% discount in Iowa, but not in NV.!
      2. Here on Wichita Kansas I saw may a couple of them. We have Kroger, wiggly Piggly, and Hyvee in Manhahatten, KS. This city is very high end. One KS, University ,s is here. College town. It’s a 2 hr drive, it’s not worth it….rr
          1. Smart and Final gives 55+ seniors, a discount the first WEDNESDAY of every month. Dollar General and Dollar Tree also have e-coupon programs for additional savings.
      3. Yup, Southeastern US is still small town, caring about neighbors, supporting each other down home country living. Relocated and LOVE it.
      1. I’m in Nevada & most of them aren’t here. Only Burger King, & they gave us 10% in Iowa, but not in Nevada!
  25. Would also like to add to my comments is that I am going to the Dollar Tree for the first time in the morning. I am sure going to checkout what deals they have. Thanks for tip. Debbie
    1. I live in Texas. We have the Dollar tree here to and we have great savings. Thanks only thing is our county is poor since we live on the border of Mexico.
      1. I live in Ft Worth and the only stores we have thats on the list is Kroger and some of them don’t give discounts. I hit Dollar Tree alot but some of the stuff I use to get there is cheaper at Walmart so I go both
      2. I live in Arizona & we have Dollar Tree & Family Dollar here & we also have 99 cent stores where just about everything is 99 cents. I get my fruits & vegetables there & a lot of my canned goods. It certainly saves on the grocery bill. I heard that Arizona is the only state that has those stores.
        1. I live in Oklahoma and it upsets me to know that so many of you out there gets enough money per month to go to places like Burger King cause I sure can’t afford it. And they keep telling me Oklahoma is a good cheap state to live in when you are retired. Bull!!!!!! Why can’t the statehelp more ?
    2. None of the contributing stores are in the coastal or Central Florida area. Does AARP have any grocery discounts
  26. I am 62 and live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan . I have learned a lot from reading all your comments. I am a Registered Nurse but am on disability because I I can’t work anymore. I am going to check out all the grocery stores and find out if any offer a Senior Discount of any type. I am also going to checkout all restaurants and find out the ones that have Senior Discounts. I am like most of you and I live on a very fixed income and need all the help I can get. You will never know about a lot of things if you don’t ask because it is obvious that these discounts are not advertised. I never knew that restaurants that I have been to offered Senior Discounts. I sure will be asking from now on. I hope that everyone will follow suit and do the same, ASSUME NOTHING! Thanks for listening and remember to ask. Debbie
    1. I will! Thanks for the information. I did know that Taco bell and Burgerking has senior discounts. Sammy Lynn
    2. Knowledge is power and the power of connection is what we must do to survive… Our Government is letting an outdated system carry on… Together we stand, divided we fall… Our country is extremely divided… Your journey sounds parallel to mine… Stay strong Debra
  27. I have just read all of your comments. 1. Personally anyone over 55 or 60 should be ENTITLED to all discounts in every store. We have worked a lot harder being baby boomers. 2. Where the hell do these kids think they are entitled to beg, borrow or take money that they need. We never borrowed. We worked went to school and bettered ourselves. Today’s kids (under 50) think they deserve it. People please go spend your retirement on yourself. I know it’s hard to go from month to month, but even if you put $50-$100 away a month, you can go on a cruise. I’m in the same boat as far as my kids are to busy and they live 15 minutes away. Go figure. My husband and myself have given up. Now it’s our turn. I couldn’t be happier. They call when they want something, but we are busy. It has worked to the point of they will come over to our house now. I think they got the hint. Point is please do what your heart says. God bless and live life to its fullest. ❤️
    1. No one deserves any kind of reward for living. I don’t care how old you are. But to imply you should be entitled to it is awful. I am 68. Worked my butt off my whole one owes me anything, nor do I think I should be rewarded just because I didn’t die early. Young people are helping pay my Medicare bills. Young people are helping pay for my grandchildren’s education. And help with my roads, etc. If I get senior discounts, I am grateful, not entitled. Thank you for doing that.
      1. I’m sorry but I am retire I paid in to my retirement insurance and my social security benefits is not welfare I earned every penny and if I can get a Senior citizens discount don’t think I won’t
      2. I’m 65 and don’t get any senior discounts. I live in Nevada and the only store near my is Kroger’s. What about Wal-Mart?
        1. I live in NE Tx and sometimes I just get tired of asking for a discount for seniors. Here is what I know. I have a Chase AARP card that 24/7/12 I get 3% off gas, I get all my groceries and restaurants discounted and all of this comes off my card at pay time. At Denny’s we show the AARP membership card and then the credit card and it is taken off at the register. If you deal with credit cards you will get better discounts on things that matter to us.
    2. Amen, Linda… Same here!!! I set boundaries & yes it stings a bit… As you said, boundaries has warranted I am able to put $50 to $100 in my savings because I set boundaries… It is my turn … I am 71 & on a fixed income… I am not selfish, generous to a fault & was sinking fast… Until I lovingly set boundaries…
      1. Amen, to Brenda & Linda, that’s the only way we’ll enjoy our remaining days here, to set boundaries & save.
    3. Here and Virginia senior drinks at Wendy’s or quarter also McDonald’s at Burger King give a drink discount also. I usually ask for a discount wherever I go doesn’t hurt to ask you never know.
    4. I totally agree with you. I Have three Children and for more years than I could count The older 2 would call us when they needed money. My husband and I are very proud ? of our son He has always tried to get by. When he gets really gets in trouble. we have to sit him down and get him to tell us what we can do to help him. He doesn’t like to be beholden to any one. We are very excited to have a great son, and very proud of him. WE LOVE HIM ❤️? VERY MUCH!!!
    5. The oldest Baby boomers turned 60 in 2006! They were born between1946 and 1964, so now range in age from 73 down to 55. They mostly worked hard, you are trashing the wrong group.
  28. 99 cent stores in southern California have great buys. Some things clothing, books etc cost more but fruits, vegetables, staples -bread, cookies, candy cards, etc are 99cents When I go to Cali. the first stores I hit are 99 cents. Same items not always in each store. Hope this helps.
    1. Along with Smith’s and City Market in Utah, king Soopers in CO . KROGER owns lots of other stores and they really tried to stop union involvement for insurance, pay, keeping hours below 36 per week. Knew one of their area mgrs who made a high 6 figure salary.
    2. Krov Kroger is unionized and service sucks at times also The parking is bad and not that cheap 2 shop. I use bashes more friendly service and not union!!!
      1. Unions were created to protect employees and to make sure their salary is steady and fair. Without unions you would not be getting raises for ‘cost of living’ and more. So stop knocking Unions, please. As far as service, I agree. I had my groceries stolen right in front of a Publix and the cart girl helped the thief load my groceries into the thief’s car. Employees are for certain not trained in personable customer service regardless if Union or non-union.
        1. Thanks unions made America strong. Kroger’s treats their employees well. Customer service leaves something to be desired in all stores. Note I am not or have been an employee of kroger’s.
  29. Check with your Dr sometimes they will give you samples of your med helps alittle or check with drug company who makes your med some give discounts ….I have Bl cross Blue shield federal from working Cival Services and pay $150 a month and chose not to take medicare….why pay both….thank God…it works for me…for now…Flordia….dont be proud always ask for discount…and some restrauants allow you to eat off kids menu…Winn Dixie in Fl has alot buy one get 1 free….maybe shop with a friend and split your groceries even eat out and share a meal we dont eat as much…nice food good company…
    1. Any person whether young or old can order any meal on the menu, whether it’s the most expensive or a kids meal.
  30. I pray God Jesus Christ will take care of all of us seniors as we need all the help we can get. I am 73 and am tired of being treated so bad by my blood family. I never hear from them, and all I ask is for them to text me saying “hi, how are you” God bless you, Margaret
    1. Dearest Margaret, My heart aches hearing that your family isn’t as supportive as you need them to be. I pray that God sends you a true friend or companion to assist each and helps to fill up your day with no strings attached. God bless you.
      1. It’s time 4 u 2 adopt an outside family. Visit a nursing home & take them a fruit tray; volunteer 2 read 2 kids @ school; lead a group of women ur age 2 collect items 4 other seniors who aren’t as active ( u may find them n ur church). I visit the sick from my church on Sundays after church services. There r ways 2 adopt a family even if ur blood family is missing n action. No time 2 pine over what u don’t have!
        1. Saying no time to pine, in this case is rude and hurtful. Unless you find yourself in that position, hooky can’t understand. Your advice was good, up tho that point.
          1. Very true Barb. You never know what the extent of another’s burdens in life might be. Too bad it’s not so cut and dry or easy.
          2. Just as you can’t get blood from a turnip you can’t make family members visit you. There comes a time when one has to stand their ground. I can’t and I won’t pay to have anyone come visit me.
        2. Hi.. you say that Publix gives discounts in northern Alabama… can you tell me if that includes Huntsville/Madison stores.. that is where I shop when I visit family there.
        3. Great comments Earnie! I’ll pass your thoughts to my son since he was s long haul trucker for many years.
        4. Thank you, Earnie for your message… This is how I grew up & carry on the tradition as this is what my parents would want me to do… Doing this fills my ❤️… Be well and carry on… God bless you for being an Earth Angel….
    2. Hello Mrs. Margaret’ I don’t know you. But I read your post about your family. I am so sorry that they don’t check on you from time to time. But if it helps in anyway. I’m saying GOOD morning to you and hope you have a blessed day. Enjoy your self and know that GOD always answers prays. Love you and continue to ?.
        1. Hello Ms Margaret, I feel like almost everyone I love has left this world. Parents, 4 brothers, husband, so many close friends. I do have a small family left and 2 little dogs that love me always. Couldn’t have made it without my faith in Jesus. I thank him daily. So my point is, you already have new friends on here. If you feel safe, share a text number or facebook. I would check on you. Maybe you know a safe way we could just say hi.
    3. We feel the same way, just a tiny text Now & then would make a big difference in feeling loved or not loved, but dont count on others for that , wha,wha, do something for others ,that’s where we will feel love ,in your home town,not your family, family can take advantage or you.??
      1. Hi reading does comments make me realize I’m not alone I think is this era that we are living. Have 4 children 6 grands and 3 friends I’m 71 and have no others close to me OH forgot the most important my 2 dogs and GOD. Trying to joint a new church (will see) is hard to make it everyday but I have to thanks GOD so far for been at my side but no doubt it feels lonely GOD BLESS AND HELP ALL THE SENIORS IN THE WORLD ???
    4. I know the feeling, God Bless. We have Kroger’s but it’s called King Soopers here and they Don’t know if they’ll get their contract renewed
    5. I’m so sorry you are being mistreated, I’m 67 and have wonderful children but my so called family never hear from any of them….. if you need a friend I’m here for you
      1. Sorry to hear that, Margaret, especially your own kin. I wished that i lived near you, i would come to visit.
        1. Me too! My family used to be VERY caring, but in the last 15 years they just forgot, me – starting when I bought a new home on acreage in the country. Jealousy? They used to visit all the time, now never. I adopted a 3 day old baby at 60, and grow fresh produce for a food pantry nearby I am physicslly and mentally like I was 50 and I am almost 78!! You have to go on living. Take control of your own life, and live it to the fullest, doing for others. you will mever regret it!!
          1. You go girl! Sounds like you have little time to dwell in the valley of shoulda coulda woulda. And what remains is it all works out in the end so if it hasnt worked out it’s not the end! Still trudging that happy road to destiny! Just plain Susie
        2. There are very few discounts in Rochester New York such as the grocery stores we have rite aid and Walgreens we need discounts in our grocery stoess here
    6. Good morning Margaret! 😎 (girl with glasses is me) I know how you feel Margaret. I only have 1 child, a son, 44 yrs old. He & his family moved from Florida to MN where I live almost 3 years ago, and I still have not met his wife or my 2 grandchildren. They live about 200 miles away from me. I get no texts, no phone calls, no birthday or mother’s day or Christmas cards. I also receive no gifts and not any pictures of my grandchildren. 12 years ago, I borrowed them almost $20,000, which was an inheritance I received from my father. They said the money was to buy a house and they would make payments to me. I found out that the money was being used to pay their bills, but eventually a year later they mailed me monthly payments for 10 months. They paid $5,000 back, and since then I have not received a penny of the $15,000 they still owe me. Not one penny for 10 years. So when I found out that they bought a $225,000 home this summer, I sent an email to him, saying that I was going to put my house on the market next summer, sell everything I own, and move to another state, & I just wanted to let him know that. I received back from him one NASTY email yelling at me, cussing me out, & calling me names! I replied back, “what’s your problem?” I got back another NASTY email, and another and another. I couldn’t take it any more and told him that since he has purposely not paid me back, not allowed me to see my grandchildren, and have to put up with his abuse, that I never wanted to speak to him again. My sister told me to check to see if he has used my house as collateral for the quarter million dollar house they just bought, but I don’t know how to go about it. But my sister said maybe that’s why he got so ugly, when I said I was going to sell my house, because he might have used my house as collateral behind my back. I believe they bought their house on contract for deed, but am not sure. Does anyone know how to see if he used my house for collateral? It’s a bad bad bad morning for me. I just had the Dept. of Education take $42 of my $792 monthly social security check as payment for my education loans. I am barely living on the $792, and the $42 they took they plan on taking until I drop dead. The school loan that I defaulted on was around $7,000, but with interest, they now want over $30,000 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sitting her with a severe anxiety attack, tears, and big time depression. I have 3 rare diseases that cause me a lot of pain, and stress causes one of the diseases to grow… it was in remission but is now actively growing, but I’ve been trying to take care of the house alone, but with winters, I just can’t do it any more. That’s why I wanted to sell my house, but I need the money my son owes me to repair the house & get it ready to sell. I am basically up shit river with no paddle. My one and only friend died of a sudden heart attack 2 years ago, my folks are passed, and my only relative is a sister who doesn’t contact me unless I contact her first. I hate feeling sorry for myself, but I just can’t help it. Sometimes I just want to give up. I pray several times a day, but nobody up there is listening. So sorry for sounding like a putz, especially when so many are so much worse off than I.
      1. There is no debters prison in the United States so put all the stress behind you who cares whether you can pay back that bill or not it’s not important put it on alower level.figure some other way of saving money to accommodate the lossof the forty two dollars not worth your life or stressing over it.go to a community center to make friends play ping pong have a good life .
        1. Wow! I do not know in what state you are, but you might check out doing Home Healrh care a few days a week for extra money. My mom-in-law does that, so she could buy a car. Check with the local Area Agency On Aging for help.
        2. Sheri M, I totally agree that stressing is not worth it but Mary’s situation may not be that simple. It sounds like you are carrying this burden alone Mary. I can’t imagine being in that place myself. I empathize with you. I have a child that has owed me a few thousand for years and another who has an uncaring husband so she tries to appease him and I barely see them and their 4 children. The children have been used as pawns. I also have illnesses that have brought me to a place of being cut off from the friends and church I have. Much of time I can’t get out. Unfortunately in our busy society it’s out of sight, out of mind ( barely any contact now). Our finances are very tight now too since both my husband and I are disabled. He started Medicare this year. There was a small increase in his check but now a premium of $135 a month much outweighs the increase and has put a huge burden on us. God is our provider so we trust in Him to help and to provide. He always has through the years! You may want to try to build a closer relationship to God and “do it afraid”. I have fear and anxiety but I determine to trust Him anyway and remind myself of His promises in the Bible and of all the times He’s been there for us. I too lost my best friend in July. My brother who truly understood my life was killed by a tree falling on him. He was the only one helping with our mom in a nursing home. Now I have her business/finances to carry as well as my brother’s estate. It’s not easy but it’s coming along day by day, PTL. I hope that you are able to get out Mary and be involved with others. We all need that in our lives. We need purpose and we need to give whatever we can in any way possible. Even if it’s only a smile or expression of appreciation to another. That goes a long way! I’ll pray you.
          1. There are two things you can do. One, you can get a special rate of interest to fix up your home, Check banks and credit Loan companies. Two, (I know this will hurt you, but you gotta do what you gotta do) I had the same problem. There is a site called Senior Abuse, Also. you can take hjm to court. It makes us sick when we have done so much for them. My son was caught with a gun. No license to own one, It was a 2 year prison. I went to see him once a month. He owed me money too. But, guess what? He had aa lot of time thinking, When he got out and went to work, I got my money back. He didn;t come to the house to pay me, he had it taken from his pay ($175.) a month until it was paid. It is paid in full. He said he learned something in paying back this loan. It didn.t hrt a bit because he never handled the cash to me, He also realized how hard it was for me working and raising 2 children. He said he hated the clothes that I bought him when he went to school, While he was thinking, he realized how hard I worked and took care of him andhis sister, I lived with a very mean man, It took me 2 years to get my divorce. He gave the office permission to send me an amount every month from his wages He said it wasthe best thing he did. If you have an attoney, he could send a letter to your son TELLING HIM that he is going to take your case to court, Let the lawyer explain why he is doing this. You won’t have to say a word. That is why you are paying him, Look up SENIOR SERVICES, They will help u to retain a lawyer that won.t cost you much. Sometimes they get that wake-up call. Maaybe it will work. I hope so.
      2. If you were married to your husband for 10 years you get his Social Security! Go to a social security agency and ask the free question if you are available to receive it! More power to you it is free to ask them if they got a reverse Mortgage on your place! A lawyer will do it for a discount , ask for it and let him have the reins to do so! He can sue them for the 15,000. they owe you! Since he was so upaty Tell him your situation , he may do it for nothing! My sons live here on my property, I know their busy with their lives and are tired when they come home! I don’t bother them but my one son has said we were to old to be his parents! I said to him, I hope your kids won’t tell you that one day! I’ve gotten to the place in life I hope they make it and go about my own life! My older son I had the most trouble with helps me more! I feel for you but you know you’ve done your job of raising them and that said you can relax and do what you want to in life! Gold detecting is what you need to do! Get out there with a small sluce on Washington State beach and make your money of 1300,oo a day! On the beaches of the great lakes look for black sand and scoop just that up and put it thru the sluice! You will feel better and get in better shape ! God love you and bless you !
      3. Call your county to see if there are any leins on your home. If he is on the deed of your home, then he can use it as collateral but he would need to have you sign the new note as well when he closed on the home. This is required for him to get a loan by every lender. If he signed your name without your permission, and without power of attorney, then he has committed mortgage fraud which is a federal offense. He was most likely upset if you sell it as he may think he was going to inherit the home when you pass. Look into doing a reverse mortgage and see if this is something that may benefit you. It is not for everyone, but you never know.
      4. I understand because I have tried to rescue everyone from their circumstances. All I have now is social security,very poor health,and a mountain of debt. Seems like no one in this world cares about me, but I have good news for you. Jesus absolutely is listening and hears every prayer. This situation on earth is only temporary. Those who wrong you and take advantage of you will be severely punished by God.In the meantime, the Bible tells us that we must forgive them, as he forgave us. Even if they don’t ask to be forgiven. If that seems impossible, ask God to help you. When we keep unforgiveness in our heart, it only hurts us, not them.I am 75 year old widow and mostly isolated from people at present. God causes good things to happen as a result of circumstances that seem horrible to us. I have come to realize that God has me isolated for a reason. I have prayed to understand the truth about many things and God has shown me so much. I know that I am a blessed woman.We are living in the endtime and there is no hope for mankind except God. We must completely trust him. He hears every prayer and sees every tear that you cry. I feel your pain and have prayed for you after reading your words.Most people who have not experienced this do not understand what it feels like to have friends and family turn against you. Jesus has the answers, but we must seek him and have a communication with him. It hurts him when we don’t want to talk to him and read his instructions to us. Your reward will be great in heaven. I understand getting what you call nasty messages. It is best not to keep responding back and forth.The hearts of these evil people cannot be changed by you, only Jesus can change them. Keep praying. If you need someone to talk to, send me an email.
        1. Judith What u wrote was beautiful. SO right about the end times. GOD is with us. I Am a vet and a stroke survivor. GOD said “I have given you wisdom and the tools. Now use them”. GOD Bless for your message.
      5. God Bless you, my heart goes out to you. I am in Idaho and got here most ago to bury my 38yr old daughter. Now I am stuck.
      6. FYI many student loans can be totally forgiven if you have a disability and there are also programs you can apply for that waive all or part of payments based on income. Good luck! Just plain Susie
    7. Dear Margaret, I am so sorry to hear the lack of caring from your family. I hope you are having a better day today. I want to ask a couple questions I want you to ask your self. Have you ever let the family know how you feel. Some times families just don’t get it. Like blind eyes. The other question have you reached out to your church for help on this matter. Please push your self with these two questions. Hopefully they will bring some brightness to your life. Take care. Vicki
      1. There may be a Legal Aid Society in your area where there could be someone who can help you get some legal answers for free. If there’s a college near, that’s another way to ask for help. Also your bank can see the record on your property. Hopefully you do not have him on the deed to your property. I had a husband that did that to me. Gave 20 years to him who really turned out to be selfish. Good luck.
    8. Please never feel along. I have a small family on my mom side of the family however, I have large family on my dad side. My mom’s one cousin keeps in contact because my mom passed away a year ago. I can’t not Imagine not having my family. I have one cousin which is like a big sister we talk almost every day. Your family really love you but just don’t check on you. Maybe you should contact one family each week.That will open their eyes.You are not alone you have Gid always. And I will could talk to you if you would loke.
      1. I know what she is talking about.and I know what she is feeling .The same thing is happening to me. My heart goes out to her and the other parents living the same. God Bless .
    9. I totally understand. If it wasn’t young grandson,I would never hear from my daughter. She recently told me, “You’ve never done anything for me”! I guess she forgot all the travels, beautiful clothes and especially all the love I have always had for her. Oh yes, there was all the free babysitting for 5 years!
    10. I bless you Margaret! I am a Cancer survivor, l have been twice divorced, l lost 3 pregnancies, l have one sibling left in my family and he lives in his own world. But God is still GOOD! I wake each morning with the joy of the Lord! Jesus Christ has kept me all of these years through all my trials and tribulations! I pray for the mighty love of Jesus for you. His love makes everyday sweeter than the day before! And taking advantage of our senior discounts don’t hurt either! Amen! Be encouraged Sweetie! Accept Christ and serve Him. He will satisfy your lonely heart and even touch your family! I’ve seen it in my family. Just Believe. God bless you! Peace!
    11. Margaret I agree. God said he would never leave or forsake us. I have found as he retire and get older family gets farther away but God draws closer. Pray for and I’ll remember you in my daily prays and study.
    12. I understand Margaret. It’s difficult when you feel your not important to your family and your grown children. I want more time with them before I have to go to heaven. They however don’t think the way I do possibly because they aren’t my age. It’s a shame that they don’t seem to care about being with me.
    13. Margaret C. Yes we do need help from our families, i imagine there was a time when you supported them and did for them. I will pray that God gives you a extra special blessing to make up for your family. GOD says what you do to the least of these you do to me! All we have is our family here and our heavenly family with GOD! God Bless you and keep you Margaret.
    14. Hi Margaret, sorry your family doesn’t check in with you. Know that you have a lot of folks out here that are thinking of you and wishing you well!! I hope that wherever you are, something wonderful happens to you today. Big hug to you Margaret!
    15. My Family lives with me I f I lived near you I would be your family love you and God Bless you
    16. Hi may god bless u. He loves u and will never fortget u. Pray for your family so they find it in their heart to. do the right thing.
    17. Margaret, I know how you feel. I do not hear anything from my family. No calls, no visits, and not even a Christmas card. I am myself. It is hard at times . I just hang on to my faith. God is all I have. I will have you in my prayers.
    18. God richly bless you abundantly with love from your friends and family. This is my prayer for you. Most importantly, may The Lord God Himself rain His love down upon you. Hang in there. He is ALWAYS with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. That is His promise to His children……
    19. Hi Margaret, I’m Mildred I wish you love , joy and peace, from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior . Jesus loves you and so Do I You are my Sister in Christ, God Bless you press down full measure and running over.
    21. Awww Margaret, I am so very sorry for your family and how alone you must feel. I hope they have second thoughts and that maybe you can find a family that may not be your family, not by blood but by friendship. Oftentimes they understand you more than your own real family and are there for you thru all the times you need someone. God bless you, sweet lady, and know that you mean more to others than you can ever realize. ❤
    22. Hi Margaret, So sorry to hear you don’t have family around you. I have run across this with other people too. However, you can’t let that get the best of you. There are so many people that would just love to have you as a mother, grandmother, or friend. Mainly because they don’t have a mother, grandmother or friend to be close to. I would be happy to help you. Where do you live Margaret? I live in California. I would be glad to write to you, we could share thoughts, ideas, what is going on with us, just things. Hope to hear from you soon. Beverly
    23. God bless you dear. I am blessed to have three sons who take care of my husband and I when we need help. I had wonderful parents to. I was just remembering that the scriptures say that the fathers will turn against the child and the child against the parents. I see this happening so much all over the world. You are not alone. Seek help from the Lord and then a lawyer.
    24. I can relate. I’m 77 live alone, have lung cancer and a very low disability income. I have 3 sons in their 50’s and they can’t call or text me I guess they’re to busy. God help me!
    25. Hello Margaret I am here to talk to you, to laugh with you and just to see how your day went. My friend thats here is 75 years of age we work out together, go to breakfast and talk. So whenever you feeling lonely love yourself and change the way you are feeling about your family and make yourself happy. Once you get involve in different actives the family will notice you are busy and you don’t have time for negativity. Love yourself and get to moving. Loving life!!
    26. Margaret, I see this situation all to often & it breaks my heart… Social isolation is taxing of your health… Please take care of yourself and God bless you always… Pick up the phone when you’re ❤️ hurts & call your children… Be well!!!
    27. I margret how are u Praying for u i pray the lord will keep u in peace until u are in his company
    28. Dear Margaret, I know perfectly well how you feel cause I have been robbed by my so called blood family. My ex tried to put me away in a foreign country and using my babies to force me to go to a psychiatrist so he could put me away cause he wanted to come back to the USA and sell our property and go back to his country with US Dollars. Thank God it didn’t work as he planed it. Then he poisoned with lies my children heart because I was awarded the house he wanted. He even deliberately lied to a judge so a innocent victim could go to jail. I also had a mother who was very naive of the laws of this country because she was born in Cuba and thinking that my sibling would do her will after her death, she put only my sibling name on her property. Once my mother died my sibling took possession of the her property and only gave me a $12,000 gift. She gave the property to her son to sell for over $170,000 and I felt I was robbed because after my father passed away I took care of my mother for 7 years while working part time jobs so I could take care of her. My mother said she would leave me money on her will but it was stolen by my blood family. So now I have to hunt for everything I need to get cause my social security is very low and I have to rent a room in my house so I can make end meet. But you know what, my sibling lost her house and karma paid her back. I now have friends that are better than blood family and I thank God for that. Amen
  31. Keth Richardson – If you have a Walmart nearby Novolin N and R are both available (at least in CA) over the counter for $24.88 per 100 units/mL 10 mL vials. Hope this helps.
  32. I live in Lincoln, IL and our Kroger just recently closed. Now all we have is Walmart, IGA(very expensive) and Aldi’s. I don’t care for Aldi’s brand. I do buy milk there at times. But most of my money goes to Walmart. It is terrible when we old people have to choose between Food and Medicine! These suckers sitting in Washington, DC can make these dumb laws but nothing is done for the seniors, I have insurance with Tricare for Life. Didn’t used to pay a copay for medicine and this year Congress made it a law that we have a copay.. Suckers! They can do that when WE pay all their medical bills for them while they become millionaires!
    1. I know what your saying and I agree Some of us did not have high paying jobs. ex I was a school teacher. We make very little. Now I’m being penalized again. Thank you State and Federal taxes. You just take and take and take. If I had known my Education courses would amount to nothing in my retirement age.
    2. I’m a certified nursing assistant and I have an elderly man in my home I’m paid to take care of him but even if I wasn’t I couldn’t imagine how he could make it financially without me helping it’s unbelievable we had this Lottery that’s supposed to be helping the seniors he wouldn’t be getting the right medical treatment if any at all he wouldn’t understand about his insurance they know the older you get the slower your mind yet as well it’s just a part of nature so how did they expect them to do all this there’s a coordinated it overseas us that does absolutely nothing for him and they are 8 to $10,000 in debt with me thank God has blessed me to help financially keep stable but it just isn’t fair I can’t speak on my own though and who do we speak up to I went to my state representative and they said honey you’re going to have to get a lawyer who can afford that so here I am stuck thanks for listening and keep praying like I do
      1. Fighting for a kidnapped 7 yr old grandson who was stolen almost a year ago. The attys suck the blood out of your body in Family Court. No rights for Fathers in USA. They are just ATM machines
    3. So true. So sorry. I know sorry doesn’t help pay the bills. However my heart goes out to you as my mother is facing the same.
    4. Corporations haven’t been paying their share for decades. The CEO of the places make millions a year and pay less tax percentage-wise. When the top 4% make more than the rest of us, like teachers, and police and fire persons, we will continue to pay. Both sides in Congress get lots of payoffs by the lobbyists who work for big pharmacies, corporations to vote for the companies. Like one of the Koch brothers paying $11K for a bottle of wine and it turned out to be vinegar. Sure would be nice to have that for house payment or repairs on my 26 year old car. My teacher retirement is only up to 764.00 a month after 23 yrs of teaching and having to go back each summer for more certifications at University prices. Think about the people who own Walmart, one of the richest families in the USA.
      1. If you haven’t found an answer yet Victoria I would suggest checking in with your counties Office of the Aging. They are a great resource.
    1. But they should know that only their tier 1 and 2 meds are free. Diabetes still get shafted as insulin is a tier 3 and wxpensive.
      1. My daughter is Diabetic also the Dr. took her off needle shots and put her on the pin. Insulin here in Calif is 580.00 per bottle used to be 1.75 per bottle and went up to 3.80 co- pay a bottle her pins are 3.80 co=pay retail is 1299.00 per pen which is 10 does. If a person don’t have insurance they have no meds.
  33. The Kroger stores in Denton TX don’t have the senior discount any more, they also took away all places where we could sit while we waited for our ride. A lot of us don’t drive any more. Our retirement place took us to Kroger once a week, but we go to other stores now where we can sit while we wait.
      1. I thought Kroger would give the discounts. If they would give the discounts to seniors they may just more business. SHAME ON KROGER . I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN Y’ALL.
    1. Kroger: that was a mean thing to do, by taking away seats for them to wait…………………!!! I have a Kroger within one mile of me in Katy, TX and would call and order groceries. No More I will order from HEB now. I am a young 71. but have a bad knee and would be very hurt if I couldn’t sit down and wait for a ride when I did go to the store.
    2. That was mean of the store to take the seating away. I don’t blame you for going to a different store where they have seats while you wait for your ride. Some people think we have always been old. Not that we used to be their age when we were younger. And remember it when they get our age they will look like us. With age comes wisdom.
  34. I think it’s so sad all the problems seniors have trying to get what they are entitled to. Then you have to figure out who still takes what. I call bullshit.
  35. Hi,Iam Giving a shout out. Iam a 65 year old woman Who needs to know about Discounts out here for st.louis,mo. (South City) area. Everytime I ask for my discount,Iam told they don’t have one.Iam talkn About stores, restaurants and grocery stores. Thanks…..Debbie
    1. I have also faced the same thing! Next time ask the waiter or cashier first & when they say no, get the person’s name and ask for the manager! Turn your phone on to record, then ask again for the discount. If he says no contact corporate, post your recording! It puts them in a bad light
  36. I am 83 years and thank God The government raised 2.8 % To retirement people here in Florida after I don’t remember How many years passed by With no increase. But I receive food coupon for $16.00 which covers milk and Bread for 10 days maybe. But well still alive.
    1. Yes they raised the 2.8 percent here in Arizona for the ones that is on ssi and social security plus the ones that have survivors and widow benefits I am 65 and I can pay a few more bills then I did before we got the raise
      1. Yes yes yes…iwas a kroger discount senior shopper but aldis always has fresh veg for a 1.00. & oleo 78c cheese 1.88 good lunch meat 1,2,3 milk,1.88gal, eggs fair price, fresh meat, fresh fruit may not carry everying as a big store such large variety of cakes ect. Except @holidays. But you can eat good and enjoy the fun of a small store and everything you could want or need..cheaper. Our fave potatoe Chips like ruffles 89c. Girlscout type of chocolate mint cookies 1.09 & pecan sandies 1.09 &tortilla chips 99c …i could go on &on !!! Have Fun! Oh yes they have a hard line that changes every week that can meet R beat the other…bye…
        1. Yea aldis u can get a good budget going with their prices.the hard part is staying within that budget.lots of goodies at a good price.
          1. I have found that aldis here in LAGRANGE Ga is a good place to buy. Groceries. Price wise. But Wal-Mart here is not bad..and I am a senior citizen.if 86 would be a senior citizen.
        2. Hey, I discovered Dollar Tree! I live in Marlin, Tx. Everythi g is $1.00 or less. Eggs are $1.00 for 1 1/2 doz. Eggs All kinds of frozen foods canned and box foods. I shop there FIRST and then go to my local HEB, which is next door to the Dollar Tree! I also save over $100 per month, using on line coupons, which I print out. I save $4-5 just on a bag of dog food!
    1. Thank You for your posting of the dIscount ..I never knew Brookshires had for Seniors..I have been living in the area for 7 years and unaware of it..I will pass it on to others!
  37. Burger King: 10% off for Seniors (60+) Not in North GA. Dairy Queen: 10% off for Seniors Not in N. Georgia IHOP: Discounted Senior Exclusive Menu KFC: Seniors receive a free small drink with any meal (55+) Not in North Georgia McDonald’s: Discounts on coffee (55+) And soft drinks Subway: 10% off (60+) may vary by location Not in N. Georgia Taco Bell: 5% off and free beverages (65+) HA HA NEVER in north Georgia TCBY: 10% off (55+) Not In North GA. Waffle House: 10% off on Mondays (60+) No discount in North GA.
    1. Has anyone wondered about no discounts in N.Georgia area. Could it be to tourism or our clean living, they may have to offer it to too many seniors. SHAME ONE THEM.
    2. I think it’s a shame that McDonalds as big as they are only have discount on coffee and sodas I’m sure there are a lot of Grandparents that take their Grandkids there all the time so don’t we deserve to get more discounts. I think.its a shame so everyone needs to.quit taking their Grandkids there
        1. WALMART stopped price matching last year here in Henderson, NV 89014 after making a big deal of it for the previous 10 years.
  38. I’m 69 Feb.10th My wife and.i need all discounts. We can get. Fix income limits your Ability to purchase items of high cost. Heath food, and supplements, for good health. Medication / Doctor visits. Forget it.
          1. Not with auto nor home owners insurance-they really bleed you when you are single-old and single even worse!!
        1. And that’s pretty shitty if a couple has been for any number of years together, they need to divorce to get better discounts.
          1. We were told that same thing by a SS rep. We would get a lot more if we weren’t married (married for nearly 54 years); so I guess the government approves and encourages promiscuity.
          2. Hi, Lois Kratzner, You should, indeed, be able to receive some benefits, such as food stamps, help with heating, and more IF you qualify. It depends on your income. I don’t know where you live, but most states have programs for low-income seniors. If you are living on only Social Security, it should be available to you. Here in PA, there is a STEP program – Office for the Aging that can be of great help. They also have Meals on Wheels for those who may be home bound, as well as offering people to do light house-keeping, etc. They were of great help to my folks in their late 80s & early 90s, although my folks did their own meals. I was living out-of-state so it was a relief to me, knowing they had some help. Best wishes……….. Hoping this may help for you and any others who don’t know who to contact. This is my first time here so hope this goes into the right place for an answer. I was checking to see if Wegman’s have discounts, but don’t see their name. 🙁 They DO have a wonderful store though with lots of organic and healthy foods.
        2. Thats not %100 true. It depends on individual income after divorce or death of spouse. Here in Wichita Kansas none of the stores exist that give discounts. If your a senior and divorce & go on medicare depending on your gross income you may qualify for medicaid. Not a locked deal. Thanks to taxation rates I could not stay in my home. I,m taxed approximately twice what I paid for my home. A neighbor with2 1/2 acres more + comprable house paid less taxes on property they purchased. It happened to a friend…she did research & appealed and won. My vision is poor & I can’t read all fine print
    1. Try aarp for Medicare supplement and do a 90-day Optum RX because as long as it’s 90 day there is no co-pay if it’s less than 90 days then there’s a copay however I live in Colorado. Happy birthday
      1. Not on Medicare yet. Been on my husbands work medical insurance. But I know soon I will have to go on Medicare. Can you tell me my Best options I live in Illinois? Thank you.
        1. Since you’re both on his ins already there should be a way to transition to Medicare w/the current ins becomes your supplement ins. Call the office at work that takes care of ins.
        2. We are on Humana Gold, and we love it. I live in Louisiana, so you would need to see if they offer it in your area. We have no monthly premium and our Co-pays to our primary MD is free, $30 to Other doctors. I have had a lot of surgeries and test and they have ever turned me down on anything. Lot better than just regular Medicare.
          1. I have Humana also and I have my medication delivered right from their pharmacy. No copay and right on time. If I have a question about anything I get an answer, they don’t put you on hold or transfer you unless necessary.
        3. I don’t know about your state but in Virginia it’s disgusting the rate for medicare premiums. I just turned 65 and was told I had to be 66 before I am eligible for retirement age. This is a COMMEN-WEALTH state and they suck you dry for being old. I pay over $ 200.00 a month for healthcare and live off of $ 453.00 a month, it’s killing me.
      2. Also my cardiologist several yrs ago prescribed the double amount of my tablet type medication. I cut it in half and the prescription is less expensive. Can’t do this with several but the ones that can be cut. Saves
      3. BEWARE OF AARP for medicare!! I am suing them gor FRAUD HOWEVER. Medicare supplement G is a good deal with several other companies ( I have it with Humana). I pay NO copay for Dr, Specialists, ER, etc. Check it out ( and also supplement F) and you can sign up ANYYIME. But, you have to sign up for F this year, as it is not offered to NEW people after 2019. But you can still KEEP it as long as you want
  39. It would be nice if United or Walmart would give Seniors a discount. Some of us are on Social Security only and it’s hard to buy food and medicine you need. I do not find any Senior Discounts in grocery stores in Amarillo, Texas.
        1. Stop shopping at Walmart. If all seniors stopped doing business with Wally World they might pay attention to our needs
        2. Don’t hold your breath with Walmart. They aren’t going to give anyone, anything. Most stores would rather take to landfill than give anything to the needy.
          1. They have enough customers with families with kids to make their billions plus for 40 years they’ve bought samples of things from other stores, sent them to China to have them built/ made there and sent back to us.
    1. I agree with you Lavinia. I’m in the same situation. And find no real discounts here in the Kansas City, MO areas. I’m actually in Independence but still no discounts
    2. Taco Bell gives senior discounts. El Tap Mexican Restaurant, El Tap Mexican restaurant in Sparta, TN also gives senior discount. Thanks to McDonald’s for $1.00 drinks. They have good sweet tea!!!
      1. Taco Bell in Georgia gives NO discounts anymore. No one gives discounts here. McDonald’s give EVERYONE $1.00 drinks, not just seniors. They DO give senior drinks though, 60 cents for small soda and small coffee.
  40. I’m 75 years old. My daughter lives in Florida and I have being going to Florida since I was 50yrs old. I remember starting getting all those discounts there all the time. But here in NY it’s so hard to find out where they have those discounts. I hate to ask because they look at you like they want to kill you. I have worked all my life and never had anything free in this country.
    1. We need discounts In SS we live in a fixed income Meds are high cost It’s very hard we work all our life to be like this conditions sad
  42. It would be nice,if all states dropped the taxes on Seniors ! Starting at55 -or 60; that would be the best deal . All Seniors have enought trouble making it, on the Soc. Ser. they have to make it on! If all Congressmen or Senitors had to make it on what the rest of us have to live on they couldn’t do it !
    1. Right on , but I feel we need an entirely newer gov’t, younger gov’t one that sees sensible ideas. Snr’s need less taxes…and inflation is a joke.
      1. The people that run Washington should be ashamed of them self ,how do they leave Washington as millionaire and they want us to have health care that they wouldn’t have ! They would still have there top of the line healthcare !
        1. I think congress & senators shoul have medical as other state employers. Plus a limit of services.. no lifetime salaries/ healthcare. I have to grow food discounts, no tav break unaffoable medical & medicare. Illegals get better care
        2. What they get in retirement is outrageous and unfair…especially when they rest of us got laid off during one or another oil boom crunchs or it got faded out or better like i worked at K-mart EARNED by working the hours to become eligible for 40hr vac.. AND full time hours Came back from vacation and my hours were cut to 4 for the week & the next & the next then told they had to recoop my vac. time & and talk about unfair and used ..not only quit but it effects your income levels way down the road at SS time…
    2. I agree. Plus, taxes and premiums on Medicare and S.S. That reduces our income greatly. Some people, like my Sister has 2 jobs and she is 72. No end in sight.
    3. I agree with you there, I just retired and now see what it’s really like to live on a fixed income…Don’t know how we are going to make it when our property taxes come due…I see why a lot of seniors have to sell their homes after they retire. I have always said, you work all your life and your parents have done the same, but you have to do without. Now all these illegals are coming in and we are paying for them for free medicine and health care and we have to decide do we eat, or do we buy our medicine. It’s not right. we have paid our share what right do they have….I hope before I leave this world, I will have something for nothing ! It makes me sick seeing the ones crossing the boarder and having babies and they are given free medical !!!
      1. Why is it when we have tough times it’s always the “illegals” fault? The ” illegals” don’t qualify for anything! They contribute to the community by working jobs most US citizens won’t do ie work in the fields. The crops this year were rotting in the fields because the “illegals” were not there to pick them. They work hard doing back breaking work for little pay and no benefits.
      2. Actually, the immigrants coming over here do not get Welfare, food stamps, free Medical and housing because they have to have Social Security cards which they can not get without paying enormous amounts of money!
    4. Have you thought about people like Orrin Hatch or Mitch Mc Connell. Paid by our taxes for years. McConnell is married to a woman I’m the current administration She is the daughter of one of the wealthiest shipping millionaires in the world. These people in the corporations get old too and the ‘ death tax’ doesn’t help me and most of us who are writing. In order to get help from the ‘ death tax’ we’d have to be worth over at least 6 million because the rich get to take it off their taxes. Look stuff up on Google ask questions. Waiters in restaurants pay higher taxes percentage wise than many well off as they are taxed as commissioned sales people and they pay a percentage on tips even if they don’t make the tops.
      1. I think a lot of people in the Goverment treat us bad like me thay took my sec 8 houseing a way from me because I had to many people come visit and check on me after I had a heart attack and surgery I need it help so I called onmy famley and my friends to help me till got better and back on my feet that was all I did and thay took away my houseing sec 8 and put me out in the streets with my 6 year old son for trying to take care of my self and they my son to and from school I am 63 years old and I am sick.
    1. Highlight and print whatever you choose to print oopy and paste into note pad or office product of choice and print.
    2. Brad- Highlight by holding down your left mouse, then click on the right mouse and click print. That should do it….I think.
  43. Hi. It’s nice to know that seniors can get discounts on the east coast. I’m looking fot stores in So Cal that give discounts on the west coast. Any info for those of us on the West Coast would be a great help. The prices out here are so high it really hard to make ends meet out here. Best Regards, Vickie
      1. Yes, nothing in California for any discount on groceries! Few high end restaurants, but who can afford it! To begin with! We can’t eat fast food all the time! As an AARP member, any suggestions to help us! Everything is expensive in California, gas alone is the highest in the nation! All Seniors, we need some help here!
    1. At Walmart you can get insulin, the old kind, N & R for much cheaper than if you use insurance for it. I pay 24.99 a bottle. That does help a lot. Lilly brand now cost over $175 a bottle.
  44. Fry’s (Kroger) in Tucson continues to honor Senior Discount Program the 1st Wednesday of every month. Kudos to these grocers in Arizona
  45. The Lowes grocery stores in the Myrtle Beach, SC area give a senior discount of 5% on Wednesdays. In addition, the Lowes in Murrells Inlet, SC has a related gas station where they give a $0.05 discount per gallon (up to 25 gallons) for every $100.00 spent in the grocery store.
  46. Both Fry’s Foods and Fred Meyers are Kroger, so saying that Kroger has dropped it’s Senior discounts is false. My husband works for Fry’s and as I’m typing this he’s working Senior Wednesday as a Kroger employee.
    1. It might be true that Freddy’s has kept its discounts, but the Kroger’s in South Carolina has definitely dropped it’s Senior Discount.
  47. Well I guess I won’t be shopping at Krogers or Publix anymore. I live in Atlanta which is part of Northern Georgia so this list is incorrect. It’s not like the discount will make or break me but I’m very disappointed that they are disregarding their senior citizen clientele.
    1. Grocery stores in Denver do not charge tax on groceries if you are in Denver city limits. Also .10 discount on gas for every $100 you spend at Kroger’s -and I think Safeway I’m not sure- up to a $1 per gallon discount.
    2. Publix gives discounts to seniors on WEDNESDAY. Atlanta is not North Georgia. Above Canton is considered N. Georgia. I don’t even have a Publix where I live.
  48. My local Giant Food Store in Maryland gives a 5% senior discount every Tuesday. I am not sure if this extends to all Giant stores or not.
    1. They’ve now stopped this as of 1 January 2019. they have another program to enter but it’s just coupons.
    1. We were told the same thing in Marietta, Ga. We are part of north Georgia, so this list is incorrect. Seniors who don’t have computers or smartphones (many don’t) won’t be able to take advantage of the reward points system. Once again, seniors lose. 🙁
    2. The publix at Laurel Canyon ( Canton/ Jasper) GA has discontinued. They just told us that today was the first Wednesday they haven’t given it.
  49. Is not nice for Kroger to end the senior discount when I finally got old enough to take advantage of it. Shame on Kroger.
    1. Yes my husband and I now shop around at different stores for discounts. When Kroger had Senior discounts we shopped there always but not anymore. So very sad !
      1. i have shopped at king soopers (kroger) over 50 years in the denver area….nothing here… except the stuff nobody buys…offered @ discounted prices….maybe like i said…stuff nobody buys or uses …gets discounted on your king sooper card.
    2. Krogers has an excellent program for discounted gas and I ALWAYS buy my gas at their stations, but SHELL also discounts Kroger fuel points. I live inTennessee and am 85. I now usually eat only once a day, seldom twice, and NEVER three meals because meical bills take most of my money. Nothing left from my social security, but when I applied for food stamps was told my income was 200 a year over their limit- so NO help from the food pantry! I buy all I can at Dollar Tree, but I REALLY prefer FRESH fruit and veggies.
  50. I thought Albertsons gave a senior discount on the first Wednesday of every month. Does this discount still exist?
    1. You have to check with each Albertsons to see which one gives the senior discount. In Alpine California they do not. In Yuma Arizona they do.
      1. Now that Albertsons has made the smart move to rebrand all of their stores to Safeway (following suit from Federated changing the holding corp’s name to Macy’s, Inc. and all the stores to Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s), due to bigger name recognition, will the Albertsons discounts (still the parent Corp.) pass on to all Safeways?
  51. That’s so sad and I would b ashamed if I was Kroger’s CEO s to discounted their seniors discount program. Most seniors don’t have the knowledge of how to do other programs, or the help to do so.
    1. Most of the Seniors these days did got to high school and probably 45-50 percent went to college. All seniors these days know how to manage their money. Lots of them just don’t have enough for a lot of reasons like taking care of grandkids or their own Kids etc.
      1. My husband is in assisted living and we pay over 9,000 per month. I live in senior living and pay 3,000 per month. We also have to pay for prescriptions from the VA. I pay for mine with part D. Try doing this on SS and retired teachers retirement.
  52. Grocery Outlet S. Euclid Ave. Ontario, Ca 91762 Offers senior Discounts every Wednesday 8-3 pm. I believe it is 10% Discount. Walgreen’s (all stores to my knowledge) offers 1st Tuesday of the Month 20-40% discount for Seniors. Hope the info. helps.
    1. Hi all. Fortunately I was mistaken about Gristedes canceling their senior discount. You don’t get it automatically any more. You need to get the loyalty card. Then MAKE THE SENIOR DISCOYNT IS PROPERLY APPLIED IN THE CARD. I was one of many people who got the card at my store who didn’t have the senior discount applied to the card. The manager took care of it and now it’s an automatic part of my card.
  53. I I was just in Publix in Tennessee and they discontinued their senior discount. So no discounts for seniors at Publix in Tennessee.
  54. I was in Giant Food in Fairfax Virginia last Tuesday and got a 5% discount. The cashier said it is every Tuesday. I forgot to go today to see if it worked again.
  55. I live in Fuquay Varina, NC (Raleigh metro area) and I received a 5% senior discount last Tuesday (Jan. 16th) at my local Kroger.
    1. We continued to receive a 5% senior discount at Kroger as long as we shopped there (through June, 2018). But now all the Krogers in Raleigh and Durham, NC are closing. We were able to use our Kroger card at Dillon’s stores out west (Colorado)…
  56. The Kroger stores in the Atascocita or Humble Texas Division DO NOT GIVE DISCOUNTS.. They also eliminated the senior discount card due to abuse they could have eliminated.
  57. Very recently (Nov. 8, 2017) my closest Bi-Lo told me that the 5% sr. discount is no longer. They said the Bi-Lo Plenti card “handles” the senior discount. I do not think so. Please verify.
