    Do you give senior citizen discounts? How much? Just so you know (if it makes you feel any better, NATE), I did try a search but to no avail.

    I've had them (senior citizens) tell me their on a limited budget! Guess What? WE ALL ARE!

    So, my answer is no, I do not give senior citizen discounts. One of the 9 deadly mistakes of entrepreneurship is under pricing your product. So unless you can service a senior citizens account quicker or cheaper than others, why cheat yourself out of money?
  3. I don't offer senior discounts.
    Although I do contribute 15.3% of my net to support them.

    No, It seems the seniors around here have more money than us working people.

    I just came across this today. I told the lady that we didn't and she said OK, just thought I'd ask.

    Nope. I've never heard of a private landscaper offering a senior discount.

    Haven't been asked once in 8 years...but if someone did, I would say, "Yes, your estimate includes a senior citizen discount".

    And then I would probably leave it at that.
