New Yorkers age 55 and over get a 5% discount at Food Emporium on Tuesdays. This discount applies only to purchases $20 and more, which — unfortunately — is pretty easy these days as prices for food keep going up, and you must present the coupon in the in-store flyer.
NYC on the Cheap has just added a complete list of supermarkets, clothing stores, airlines, restaurants and other retailers and companies that offer discounts to boomers and seniors over 55, 60 or 65. Click the Discounts for Seniors tab at the top of the page, or the page link right here.
Whether you are a senior or not, a NYC resident or not, you can save up to 53% on prescription medicines with the Big Apple Rx prescription discount card. This is issued by the NYC government, not by a health insurance plan.
