A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned

Today I was buying an item at a local discount store. The cashier (who looked to be in her late 20s) rang up my purchase.  When she told me the total, it was slightly less than what I was expecting it to be. I asked her about it, and she explained she'd given me the "Passport Club" discount. As she started explaining the deduction, she stumbled over her words, but finally mentioned the club was for people over 55.

AHA! The 'Club' was a discount for seniors.

I'm several years past their magic age, which is when a lot of senior discounts kick in, but I never remember to ask for them.  I guess some times, though, I don't even have to ask.  I gladly paid my reduced price and left the store with extra money in my wallet and a smile on my face.


  1. One time the Subway cashier rang me up for 1.49, said it was the senior discount and I should ask for it every time. My next Subway I mentioned the discount and the cashier looked at me like I had two heads.

  2. that's great Kathy, although if you didn't ask for it...hmm...I can be sensitive sometimes but I know she meant well! Lately we get asked if we are seniors in restaurants, not funny especially since we can't claim that discount yet.

  3. I do love those "senior" discounts. :- ) One of the few benefits of aging.

  4. Love a discount. Don't give two porky pines and pickle, as to how they come by. Discounts, gooood.
