Clipping coupons is always a savvy way to save dough at the grocery store. You may even make a weekly routine out of it. But those who have reached their golden years have earned the right to some additional perks — ones that don’t require newspapers, scissors or an hour of your day.

We’re talking about senior discounts.

It’s true that some grocery stores have retired these exclusive offers in recent years. Don’t let that discourage you, though. Several markets still offer price cuts to its prime-aged customers.

We’ve rounded up a list of the grocery stores. Take a look and see if there’s a “senior” discount near you.
