Saving money, whether it is when buying a home or saving money on daily purchases, is a common goal for many of us, especially seniors. Fortunately for Prescott residents, there is an added benefit to living in “Everybody’s Hometown”, there are senior discounts everywhere! Below is a list of businesses and restaurants in the greater Prescott area that offer discounts to Seniors.
When it comes to shopping, taking an extra 10% off your bill can add up to significant savings. For grocery shopping, seniors over 55 can visit Fry’s on the first Wednesday of the month and receive 10% off their bill. At Fry’s, you can register for this discount at the customer service desk with proof of age and Fry’s VIP card. They will in turn program your Fry’s card for automatic savings.
For shopping outside of the grocery store, seniors can experience savings at a variety of non-food establishments. One, in particular, is our local Ace Hardware. Seniors 55 or over can visit Ace in Prescott Valley on the first Tuesday of the month and receive 10% off purchases. (There is a list of excluded items at the register.)
Kohl’s is famous for its discount coupons and percent-off sales. As an added bonus, seniors who are 60 or over can take an additional 15% discount every Wednesday. In general, if you have another percent-off coupon, the discounts cannot be combined. To take advantage of this senior discount, shoppers should have their identification ready at the register.
A store that also offers great shopping values to seniors is Ross. They call this their “Tuesday Club.” Each Tuesday, seniors who are 55 or over will receive 10% off their entire bill, and a club card is not required. This is a valuable additional savings at a store that already offers incredible discounts.
There are a variety of restaurants in the area that also offer senior specials. Seniors can deduct 20% off their ticket at Denny’s. AARP members receive a 20% discount off their total check every day from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. In addition, seniors pay only $1 per person for a cup of coffee.
Another restaurant that provides a shopping value is Wendy’s. A “Senior Drink” is free at Wendy’s. All you have to do is ask the cashier and they will provide a “Senior Drink” cup. Refills are free.
Since discounts often vary from one location to the next, it is also necessary to ask if your particular location offers a senior discount. There is a great resource for senior discounts at www.seniordiscounts.com. There is no guarantee that our local stores honor the reported discounts, but it is a valuable resource to begin your own research.
