Just got back from a stash-building run. While at Michael's I heard some sort of announcement regarding an AARP discount. When I reached the check-out, I asked about it. I received 10% off my yarn (which was already on sale) before they figured state sales tax. All you have to do is show your card. This offer is valid at the local Michael's only on Tuesday. Don't know if the entire Michael's chain is doing this, but if you're buying big, Tuesday's the day locally.

I just got back from Michael's. I'll have to check that out. Thanks for the heads up.

Yep. Saw that in an AARP e-mail just in the last few days. The discount is good every Tuesday.

There was an AARP discount sign at our Michael's when I was there on Sunday so I asked about it--every Tuesday. Yay! Michael's near me is right near Ross which is another 10% off for seniors on Tuesday store.

Thanks for sharing that info. I didn't know it and will certainly make my next trip on a Tues. and ask for the discount. On top of the sale price you say? That's a good deal.

I refuse to pay out money to just get advertisement from AARP. And at our ages we should automatically get that discount like they use to do for senior citizens. At one time Senior Citizens were shown a lot of respect not now.

Ames used to have a Senior Citizen card for people over 55. When you went shopping on a Tuesday and showed the card you received the discount. It's a shame they went out of business.

I know in our area Belks has a discount day on Tuesday for seniors and we have a Michaels here (haven't checked that out to see if they have a sign up, but if it was on the AARP site, all Michaels should be included. Be sure to check for discount coupons online - no matter where you shop. My daughter-in-law has shared many good ones that she has taken the time to look up.

The money that AARP receives in dues goes for many things including lobbying for elders and discounts in many areas, but, that is a discussion for another thread.
Many places give SC discounts... Kohl's, Savers, Joann's...

Discounts and sales are great. I am in Eastern Canada and bought some yarn on sale and the cashier said Tuesday was Senior's Day and I would get an additional 10% off. One of the many good things about being a senior .......
