This is one birthday I’m actually looking forward to – 55! I now qualify for senior discounts!
Don’t be shy or embarrassed to ask for the senior discount. In this economy one needs to take advantage of every discount possible.
The hard part is keeping track of which ones are which days, so I’ve listed these by the days of the week the discounts are effective.
According to Phoenix About.com, the following Phoenix area stores offer senior discounts:
Ross – Dress for Less
10% – Tuesdays, all day
25% – Tuesdays, all day
Arizona Mills Mall, Tempe
10% – Tuesdays – Some stores are true outlet stores. Not all stores participate. Stop at the Information Booth between neighborhoods 1 and 6 for a list of participating stores. There are usually around 30 stores on the list.
10% – Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on the store – check their website for the store near you, then call for details.
Fry’s and Fry’s Marketplace

Even if your favorite store isn’t listed here, it doesn’t hurt to ask. And if it’s your birthday, don’t be afraid to say so, you never know what you’ll get as a present!
A friend recently got a dozen glades donuts free from Krispy Creme just for walking in and saying, “Today’s my birthday!”
