Outlet Malls

November is here and you can already begin to see Christmas decorations going up in store front windows. While most of us may wait until Thanksgiving, or later, to begin our Christmas shopping, we thought it would be important to mention some of the discounts now available for those of you who like to get an early start.

There are some alternatives for those national retail chains that do not typically offer a senior discount on a nationwide basis. They are outlet malls. You may not have realized it, but many outlet malls across the US have senior discount days at most if not all of the stores in the particular center.

These "senior days" usually occur once a week, but may also occur on a monthly basis, with the most common senior day occurring on Tuesdays. Expect to save around 10%, while some stores may offer a free gift or a two-for-one special to seniors on a particular purchase.

The age requirements for these mall discounts can vary. Some may begin as early as 50 years of age while others may not begin until 60. Malls may also require that you visit the mall's front office to receive a discount card or certificate to redeem the discounts. Other malls simply ask that you provide identification at the particular stores when you make your purchase.

Most malls have web sites where their senior deals can be found, but don't assume that a mall doesn't have a senior discount program just because it is not stated on its site. Call the customer service desk or inquire at the main office next time you visit. Some stores in a mall may offer senior discounts even if the mall itself does not have a senior discount program in place.

Two of the largest chains of outlet malls that offer a senior discount are the Premium Outlet Malls and Mills Outlet Malls.

Premium Outlet Malls, with 37 locations in 24 states, provides a 50-Plus Shopper Club available. Shoppers 50 and older receive an added 10% savings on Tuesdays by simply presenting photo identification to the cashier at participating stores.

The Mills Outlet Malls, with 40 locations in more than 20 states, provides senior discounts at many of its outlet locations. There is no formal program and not all malls participate, but many offer a 10% discount on Tuesdays at participating stores.

We have other mall discounts located on our site in our retail category. Click here. If you know of a mall that offers a senior discount and would like to tell others, please let us know. Click here.

Women in Politics

This year, 78 women hold statewide elective executive offices across the country or 24.8% of the 315 available positions. Among these women 35 are Democrats, 39 are Republicans, one is an independent, and three were elected in nonpartisan races.

To date, women have been elected to statewide offices in 49 of the nation's 50 states. In Maine, the governor is the only executive elected statewide, and a woman has never served as governor there.
