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 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.
