If you’re helping pay for an elderly parent’s care, every penny probably counts these days—for both you and your parents. So to save a little cash without clipping coupons, you might want to check out the BradsDeals list of 106 businesses that offer senior discounts. It includes restaurants, of course, but also a number of other companies, such as:
- Clothes stores
- Thrift stores
- Grocery stores
- Cell-phone companies
The money-savers website notes:
Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice to men and women over 55 is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount.
Here are some previous OurParents posts about money-saving offers for seniors and caregivers:
