With the majority of resaturants moving towards app based customer promotion and loyalty accounts, it is tough to keep track of where seniors can find a deal on a meal. The 10% usually offered doesn't seem like much but that is 10 cents on the dollar and can really add up. Considering most restaurants offer a lunch sandwich for about $6.00 without tax or gratuity, eating out for lunch or dinner can be expensive. For Seniors, it can add up a lot of savings. The $6 sandwich at lunch would be $5.40 with savings and that could be dollars in savings if you are going out two to three times a week. So, having a deal like that can open up the budget a little more for a nice sit down meal or a chance to get out and meet friends or family.
We at Gift Card Granny have called our local branches and a few other branches across the USA to verify some of these deals and make sure we can give you an accurate list for 2018. We would always welcome your feedback if you find your local restaurant does not offer any of these senior discounts. We aim to keep an accurate list to be a resource and give seniors the opportunity to use these senior discounts with a discount gift card to really combine their savings.
Many popular restaurants offer senior discounts which can significantly cut the cost of dining out. Depending on the restaurant you can save 5% to 20% on your bill.
Remember to call your local store before visiting since offers are subject to participation.
