It pays to be a little older and wiser, especially at Walgreens. The ubiquitous and popular drug store offers customers 55 and older Senior Savings Day on the first Tuesday of the month. (If the first Tuesday of the month falls on a holiday, the discount day occurs the following Tuesday.) For January, the discount is offered today, Tuesday, January 8.
Proof of age may be required, so bring a photo ID. Plus, the offer is only valid with a Balance Rewards membership. On Senior Savings Day, qualifying customers save 20% on all regular-price merchandise. The discount does not apply to sale or clearance merchandise.
Of course, there are some restrictions: “Discount not valid on alcohol, dairy, tobacco, stamps, phone/prepaid/gift cards, newspapers, magazines, money orders/transfers, transportation passes, lottery tickets, charitable donations, pseudoephedrine or ephedrine products, clinic services, prescriptions, pharmacy items or services, sales tax, membership fee and items or services submitted to insurance for reimbursement or where otherwise limited by law.”
If you’re not old enough for the discount, ask a friend or family member who does qualify to go shopping with you to get in on the savings. “Hey, grandma, are you busy today?”
