It Took A While But......

I love to shop. Some of you already know that. The last Thursday of the month is "seniors day" at Shoppers Drug Store. And I used air quotes for seniors day because they give 10% off to anyone aged 55 and up. And it took a while, but I finally reached that age a couple of months ago. And today I stopped and bought a bottle of Taylor Swift perfume (which is next to impossible to find in stock) and a pretty candy cane Christmas broach and I had $10 worth of points to redeem for my purchase, plus my seniors discount, plus the stuff was on sale.........the grand total was under $10. I almost fell over! Of course if you spent $50 you got a bonus $10 gift card, but I literally didn't have the time to do that much shopping or I would have. I love little incentives like that. Do you get any age-related perks when shopping?

I remember someone gave it to me at Sears when I was about the same age. I think that its a pretty easy discount for them to apply and there cannot be many rules. But once you actually can get it all of the time........I think that its SO nice.
No, we do not have age-related discounts, but our main stores have a "fidelity card", you get points every time you buy and you convert the points into a gift card at the end of the year. I receive sometimes free points to participate to their survey. Right now I have points to redeem 85$ in cash and I have a 500 points coupon that I got yesterday. May be I can reach $100 before the year ends.
So many of the social benefits of our province are directed towards young parents, and people in their 20's and 30's and it makes me feel forgotten. This is a nice little perk, that I waited a long time to enjoy. I really like it when we eat at a restaurant that has a seniors menu.
I just love that discount. A couple of people that I work with, that area clearly older then I am (by about 5 years) told me that they've never gotten the discount and asked me why. I told them I always ask the cashier if I will get my discount and after they tell me that I look too young for it, they apply it.
