While we may not apppreciate being identified as senior citizens, we seniors do appreciate a deal. We love discounts and loyalty points. More on loyalty programs another day. Shoppers Drug Mart for example, gives us (early seniors – over 55), a 20% discount on one Thursday per month, with an Optimum loyalty card. I used this discount to buy a pregnancy test, causing confusion at the cash desk.
After that I headed to McDonalds, where I received a discounted “Senior’s Coffee”. Not all restaurants offer this benefit, but just ask!
