Discounts for over 50s/60s

Hi all

I have had a quick look to see if this has been posted before but cannot find it. Apologies if it has.

I went into my local Boots today and picked up a Healthclub and more leaflet, which when you register is giving up to £100 in money off vouchers to everyone, but if you are over 60 you can get a 10% discount on Boots brand products.

Sorry dont know how to post links but you can register online at

    When I applied I just put in my d.o.b.

    They ask if you already have a boots advantage card and if you do they want the number.
    I think they then adjust the card to include your 10% discount.
    If you don't have a card you have to join up to take up the offer.

    hi all,
    being a money saver i have started looking for stores that offer a discount for pensioners to help my parents. so far ive found that b&q and rosebys offer 10% off for pensioners on wednesdays. does anyone know of any other discounts offered by stores?
    also found this over 60s bank account which seems like a good deal

    Hi Pat

    I've had a look at the Coventry BS's site. It has drawbacks. For example, what if you need a current account as well as a savings account? You have to pay in £1000 per month into the current account. I can't do that. 'You have access to it (the saver account) with a Cashlink card'. They don't say how you go about transferring any of it to your current account. I don't use much cash at all nowadays - most of my banking is done online.

    The Coventry BS over-60s saver account says: 'you can deposit up to £2000 a month'. Big deal! How many people can do that?

    I've recently switched from Cahoot to Smile and I have a current account (into which pensions income is paid), a savings account and a cash ISA with them.

    I think Homebase may have a similar 'discount day' - don't know for sure, haven't looked.

    Personally I don't like the idea of being told which day I can get discounts for being a pensioner - if I need something then I need it. But that's just me.

    Best wishes

    Margaret

    yes, youre right about the bank account margaretclare, didint realise you had to deposit amounts of that size!!!
    must admit i just glanced at the interest rates and thought they were good (they would have to be with that amount of money going in!!!!):eek:

    If they join the Boots Health Club (leaflets in store) and register their advantage card they can get 10% of all Boots products. This includes things like cotton wool, soap, parecetomol tablets and Boots own vitamins as well as cosmetics.
    No special day either.

    Also some garden centres and dry cleaners offer 10% off to pensioners.
    Cinemas too have special rates.
