Sometimes just asking 'Do you have a discount for senior citizens?' is all it takes to get some incredible savings. My friend, who shall remain anonymous at this time (a lady never tells her age!) does this everywhere we go, and she really racks up freebies and savings!

Life'd has a list of 19 huge discounts that seniors probably didn't know they could get. Pass the world y'all, these are pretty awesome!
