Yesterday I asked for the AARP 30% off discount at a locally owned and operated Pearle Vision shop and was told that the deal was either insurance OR the discount. That's not what the web site says, so rather than argue with the manager, and because I'd just decided that the frames I had picked out were not right for me anyway, I'm going to call another local Pearle Vision and get clarification on this policy from them before I start frames shopping again. Well, before I go to Pearle Vision to frame shop, anyway. Smiley Happy

 

Here's the discount text from the web site:

 

"“See” more savings with your AARP membership at Pearle Vision, a participating retailer of the AARP(r) Vision Discounts provided by EyeMed. Show your AARP card or tell the sales associate that you are insured with a plan that carries the AARP name to receive the following discounts:

  • 30% off standard plastic lenses for single vision, bifocal and trifocal complete pair

  • 40% off Transitions Lenses for single vision, bifocal and trifocal complete pair 

  • 30% off a frame with purchase of lenses

  • 30% off lens options for UV coating, tinting (Solid and gradient), standard scratch resistance, standard polycarbonate, standard progressive (add-on to bifocal), standard anti-reflective coating, other add-ons and services

  • 15% off frames or lenses purchased separately

  • 10% off disposable contact lenses purchase"

But hey, at least I asked. Smiley Wink And imma gonna ask again, too. Smiley Happy I do think that they mean to say here that uninsured AARP members can get these discounts and that those with an AARP branded Eyemed insurance can as well. I hope to find out for sure.

To be more precise, I contacted Dunkin Donuts directly about this and their reply was that their partnership with AARP was discontinued. That's why Dunkin just recently stopped honoring the AARP discount.

I was just at the Dunkin Donuts on West 87th Street in Chicago and was informed that AARP cards are no longer honored. I suppose their corporate office has no idea how many seniors have spent their money in their stores! Well, they won't be getting anymore of MY money!

I was told today at my local DD here in Scottsdale, that the free donut discount ended last month, and that it is a corporate decision - not store by store/franchise option.

If it’s a cup of coffee and a donut, it’s Dunkin Donuts.

 

Discount acceptance is purely up to franchisee, whether they accept or not.

 

I use AARP 10% or Military 20%, some will accept one or the other.

 

You merely ask which stores are owned by same franchise and move on to non-owned will accept.

 

Problem solved, doesn’t get in the way of My DD great one French Vanilla.🤣Or my 8 lb’s Of FV with my Military Discount.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

Hi @elite8539  I'm confused. Could you be more specific? What establishment are you talking about?
