We all can stand to save some money, especially seniors on a fixed income and a tight budget. Every nickel and dime counts, so if you seniors want to save a little money, try these discounts.
I just read an interesting article concerning senior discounts. I decided to make this a brief entry featuring some Scioto County businesses that supposedly offer these discounts. I was actually surprised to see how discounts there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50.
This list may be useful not only for you, but also for your friends and family, too. Feel free to add more discounts in the "Comments" section of the post.
I cannot guarantee the reliability of the list, but I will give you the address of the site that offers many more. Remember, YOU must ASK for your discount! Here is the discount site titled MOGUL: https://www.onmogul.com/articles/2571#.U5OiuShG_kW Age requirement of discount is in parenthesis.
