Rite Aid calls it Wellness Wednesdays, when seniors 65+ get a 20% discount on purchases. It’s a new program called Wellness 65+. But you can’t just show up and point to your smile lines. The discount is only on the first Wednesday of each month, and you have to sign up for the special Wellness65+ card. But it’s FREE to sign up and worth the effort so you can stock up at a discount one day a month on non-emergency needs, from antacids to dish washing liquid, and other perks such as FREE blood pressure screening and other special attention from the pharmacist.
Age has its privileges, including freebies on your birthday. Check the NYCOTC Birthday Freebies page to see who gives you what on your birthday.
