The most important lesson for the over-55-crowd to learn about senior discounts is to ALWAYS ASK! As a military wife, I've learned that I must always ask whether or not retailers offer a military discount. They often do, and if I hadn't asked, I would have never known! The same goes for seniors! There's not a thing wrong with asking each store's policy and whether or not they give senior discounts!
