I turned 55 last week and to celebrate the milestone, my friend treated me to my first Senior Discounted meal at breakfast. We went to Denny’s and my 55+ eggs, pancakes, and extra crispy bacon (burn the hell out of them!) cost $8.49.
That’s a savings of $1.00 even, or 16% off the regular menu. I guess that’s worth it, although Im not a big fan of the artificial maple syrup. He turns 55 next month, so I’ll have the chance to repay the favor – probably at IHOP.
I’m not sure how many restaurants and other businesses have the Senior discount as soon as age 55, but I guess I’ll be on the hunt to find them. As a retired, fixed-income pensioner it will be good sport, right? 😉
If I had joined AARP when I first turned 50, maybe I would have gotten deep into a bunch of other discounts too. I wasn’t too interested in that at the time. Now after 5 years of early retirement, maybe my time has come!
Where do you find good Senior discounts offered? Can I get them at 55?
Have A Great Weekend!
