Save Gold in your Golden Years

Leave a comment

Getting older is a good thing. Think about it. You have “me” time, “us” time, and quality time with those amazing grandchildren – not to mention social security checks and piles of mail from AARP and random insurance companies! But, the best news, of all, is that you qualify for all sorts of discounts. I am not talking “early-bird specials” either – I am talking about true discounts on gym memberships, food, clothing, and thrift stores. Many discounts are offered as young as 50 years old – and because 50 is the new 40, that is great news, if you are retiring in Williamsburg, VA (or retiring anywhere in the USA, for that matter)!

Because I, personally, think that physical fitness becomes more important as we age, watch this video of a Medicare program called “Silver Sneakers” that allows heavy discounts on gym memberships to seniors. This program is available through most insurance programs.

Stay healthy, Williamsburg Retiree – and eat and shop for less. Um, Er, as Retiring in Williamsburg’s disclaimer, please call local establishment, before visiting as offers are subject to participation. And if you are too young for this list, respect your elders and share with your “friends” or your grandma. Did I miss any discounts? Feel free to comment, below!
