Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice to men and women over 55 is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for you buck.

Thanks for the list.

Southwest Airlines also allows Seniors to change their minds with no penalties. When my Brother died I already had paid for Senior Tickets and I changed going out and coming back several times.

But I won't be using that again.

I have also found out many places that are chains have their own policy probably based on the owner. My Cap D's does not offer a discount so I don't go to it.

I ask for Veterans Discount first than old fart.

Nice to know about Albertsons.

Yes I agree great list, but, for some reason the metro area in Phx Az isn't so, like Pete said "old fart" friendly. A lot of the fast food franchises doesn't go by a set discount for all their store's. i.e. Jack-in-the-Box only gives a discount for a drink only, and no veterans discounts. Taco Bell does the same. I've asked several franchises why their stores aren't set with the same standards for discounts,and nearly all replied "its up to the owner". Then again, it just might depend on which state you live in. The Bugar King here in town gives 10% for dis. vets, so I've become their favorite customer. Heck, they'll probably give our "old fart" Pete a free drink as well! I like that phrase, I think I'll start using it.ha

Cooter;

I always ask for the old fart discount at Carl Jrs, in some states they're known as Hardees. They also have a 10% Veteran's discount but you can get one or the other.

Well, I can scratch out Bugar King. Found out yesterday they quit giving out discounts for everything! I guess the economy has hit this little town perty hard. Oh yea, you can forget about that free drink Pete. ha

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
