Like anything real, Fish, sometimes you just have to 'work' for it...

"Practice negotiating, and hone your style and skills with low-consequence transactions. Call the phone company and threaten to switch providers if they won't give you a better deal on your service going forward. Go to a boutique and ask for a discount." ~ Ivanka Trump

I saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to geico. I had to tell them I was a gecko though.

I saved 15%

Though eligible for certain age related discounts, I refuse. When I earn them for finally reaching maturity I may revisit the notion, but puberty has a hold on me...grateful that.

My first job in 1971 was at a Jack In The Box.  You have no idea how awful some of the food was back then.

My first job at the age of 12 y/o was as a carhop at a local Dairy Queen. I know they used real potatoes for their fries 'cause I had to peel them and cut them up in the slicer in between car runs. They only thing edible at that place besides the ice cream was the fries. God only knows what was in the hamburger patties, but, they tasted awful. jrSmiley_54_smiley_image.gif

I always wanted a less misogynistic name for jack in the box, like Jill's box or something.

Does that go for widows, too?  If so, I may actually eat at a Jack in the Box.  Do they have anything vegetarian or vegan?

If you have any type of military ID, it should.  They have salads.  My fav thing there is the cheddar potato wedges but you can get them without the cheese. Adding sour cream really makes them good.   Go to a JITB web site.  They show all of the food items.

Yeah, but you have to register with them to get it.  Just showing proper idea isn't enough.

That's true, but it takes about 2 minutes to register. Name, address and phone number. We you purchase something you just give them your phone number and the 10% is taken right off the price.

I have learned to ask for discounts, especially military discounts.  I can also get AAA and elderly discounts in many places.  Now I will have to join AARP and get their discounts, too.

Mostly, I shop on base and there is no extra discount there.

That is the provider I use. Great service and very great pricing. I get unlimited minutes for 23.39 a mo with my AARP discount. I have been with them since 2006.

I just went back to them.  I took over my husband's T Mobile account.  TM was charging me 50/mo.  I now pay 29 with CC.

4.1.4  Raven Wing  replied to  Paula Bartholomew @4.1.3    one month ago

Yeah, I had Verizon for a few years, paid 52.00 dollars a month and very limited minutes. When I joined AARP I found out about CC and have been with them ever since. My charge has never been more than 23.39 a mo, but, I went from 400 free minutes to unlimited minutes over the period of time I've been with them. They have all types of cell phones Members can buy, but, I have a very simple one as it is all I need.

Sounds like you should formally buy some stock in Verizon at that much a month, Muva. jrSmiley_91_smiley_image.gif

I will admit I received a free McDonald's breakfast this morning using my, "on call for work card". I wish I felt guilty about it.

Poor guy in a completely rusted out pickup that should never have been let on the road ran me up on the curb of the McDonald's entrance just to get in line in front of me in the drive through line. I could have blown it off; but after getting two hours of sleep- and my home internet going down- I needed some fast food and to get into work to handle the latest disaster of the weekend.  I don't have an actual card, but I do have an annoying work cell phone that never seems to stop.  I also have my father's temper, and the propensity to leave the windows down no matter how cold it gets. I think the entire line, including the workers, got to see my card several times. The driver that cut me off paid for my breakfast. I didn't ask him to, and he paid me back by cutting me off while exiting as well. 

The card usually doesn't work that way; but it does usually allow me to cut in line in the market, bank, and Secretary of States office.

When someone cuts me off in a fast food line I honk the horn when they try to order.
