25 Senior Discounts to Help Stretch the Holiday Budget
Holiday merriment comes with a price. The National Retail Federation says consumers will spend, on average, $935 during the 2016 holiday season on gifts, food, flowers, decorations, and greeting cards. That kind of spending can be challenging for seniors on a fixed income. But with a bit of digging, there are deals to be had starting at age 50. "Getting older definitely has its perks," says Ivy Chou, content manager at DealsPlus. "You get access to all kinds of discounts for restaurants, retailers, travel, and more. Coupled with hot holiday sales, it just might be the best time of year to be a senior."
