    Senior Discounts - what's the best one you have found?

    I admit I'm slow on the uptake at times. I went to a movie theater with a girlfriend
    several years ago and before we could say anything the manager gave us the senior discount and free small sized popcorn.

    We looked at each other and laughed. Obviously we are not going to be "carded" any longer in our lives.

    So...share your best scores!

    Quite a few states have property tax discounts for seniors. Kentucky has a homestead exemption -- they exempt the first $39,300 value of your property from taxes once you are over 65 (I still have three years to go) or if you are 100% disabled. For my place, that's most of the value (it's valued under $50,000); for others it should still give them a couple hundred dollars or so off their bill.

    ETA: Actually, come to think of it, if a person is on a limited income and trying to make ends meet, and they live in a state with high property taxes, one of their best discounts might be moving to a state with lower property taxes. Often those states also have lower real estate costs, so it could be a double win.

    DH is over 65. We don't have to pay property taxes, he doesn't have to get a hunting or fishing license, or pay any state taxes. Some places in town also give a senior's discount, especially at grocery stores.

    I love the 10% and 15% discounts, senior meals, free drinks, discount theater tickets, and such. But, the one that saved me the most money is the senior fare on the airlines for those unfortunate times I must fly.

    The ones I like the most are those that I don't expect and don't ask for and are a surprise. Free ice cream at a restaurant, or a kid at the counter changing my drink order to a free senior version or subtracting the discount without mentioning it.

    Free "senior" coffee/drink at Wendy's.

    Denny's has a couple of senior discount days per week.

    Goodwill has a senior 50% off day, Wednesday I think.

    Local Mexican restaurant gives seniors 50% off on food but not alcoholic drinks on Tuesdays, DH and I can eat a meal for about $8 and go home with a box of leftovers. Most restaurants at least have a senior menu if not discounts on certain days.

    $10 lifetime pass for seniors to all National Parks. We scored that one when it was still $10, it's gone up to $80 now I think. Still a good deal if you do a lot of camping like we do. It waives the entrance fee and discounts the campsites.

    Lots of restaurants and campgrounds just give us senior discounts automatically.

    Business must be dead for them to advertise. Probably a catch. You have to claim the discount after your funeral or the offer is null and void.

    Thank you, everyone! Property tax discounts, a biggie! Unfortunately in the state of IL-annoy, not so much. But even so, many people I know do not apply for them!

    Keep your experiences coming. I like the surprise discounts some of you have found. I should look into pre-paid cremation, etc. The kindest GIFT my folks gave to their
    five children was they had totally funded their funeral arrangements!

    In Wisconsin it's called a "Homestead Exemption". For me, it is a direct $1,200 tax rebate. One still has to pay their "regular" property tax at the original full value though.
