More Ways to Save
In addition to in-store senior discounts, be sure to check for sales, promo codes and coupons online. You may also be able to get a better deal by waiting for a holiday sale.
Before you make your final purchase, take the time to check and see if you can save even more by shopping somewhere else. Check out our guide on how to use Google Shopping as an easy online price comparison tool.
Lastly, consider waiting to make your purchase until the product you want is likely to be on sale. For example, Amazon will offer discounts during Prime Day in July. School supplies and technology will be on sale in August and September.
For regular purchases throughout the year, your senior discount alone can help you save big over time!
Again, be sure to contact your nearest stores for details and exclusions. No matter where you shop, remember that it never hurts to ask about additional discounts and savings that you may be eligible for.
