It does really pay to a little older and wiser, especially when it comes to senior discounts. Walgreens has been offering its Senior Savings Day for several months now. Not to be outdone, Rite Aid has now joined the bargain bonanza for seniors the first Wednesday of the month. While the discount is the same at 20% off your entire purchase, Rite Aid defines “senior” as those who are 65 or older. (Walgreens sets the bar lower by 10 years at 55.) To get the senior discount, you must be a member of Rite Aid’s wellness65+ loyalty program. It’s FREE to sign-up. Of course, there are some restrictions: “Discount not valid on prescriptions, prescription co-pays, tobacco products, alcohol, gift cards, online purchases, lottery tickets, licenses, money orders, money transfers, newspapers, prepaid cards, stamps, other mail services, dairy, items distributed by Moran Foods or Save A Lot Food Stores and items prohibited by law and may not be combined with any other offer.” If you don’t qualify, consider asking an older relative or friend to go shopping with you to get in on the savings.
