    I was thinking of offer a senior discount and was woundering if anyone else offers this and if so how much of a discount do you offer them (5%-10%). I was thinking of a 5% discount.

    Thanks in advance for any help or input.

    I've thought about doing something very similar, either a punch card type of thing or set discount. I don't do seasonal for snow, everything is per push.
    Most seniors around here have small drives like you basics two car wide by 30 feet deep with about 40-50ft of walks. This would be a $30-35 per push job, at 10% it's $3-3.50 off which really it's that much when you think about it. Now if you did a punch card type of thing were on the 11th push it's free, financially it's the same discount but the customer has the sense of getting a freebie. To entice them to sign on again the next year the punch card would carry into the following season. So say at the end of this season their punch card has 4 more pushes to go before they get a freebie. Next season after the first 4 pushes that card is full and the next one is a freebie. Now it wouldn't be an actual card that you'd punch, I was thinking it's be something that would be shown on the invoice. This way there's a electronic record for easy on maintaining and they would have a hard copy.
