With hubby being in the military and knowing that many businesses and restaurants offer military discounts, even theme parks...I ALWAYS ask...and more often than not, I get one...whether it's a military discount or not.

I had a friend, many years ago, who worked in the hotel industry, and she told me that they could not offer a discount when someone called to make a reservation, but if they asked, they were given a discount if they currently were running isn't that something?

I'm at the point in my life where I am constantly attending weddings, and many of them require travel. More often than not, when the couple has a "preferred guest rate" at a hotel, it's not always the lowest rate. Last week I called a Courtyard Marriott and found that the wedding rate was $175. I asked if they had a lower rate, such as AAA, and they did - for $116! So I booked the lower rate and told my friends to do the same. I very often ask for the AAA rate, even though we aren't AAA members. I have never, ever, been asked to show my AAA card upon check-in.

I work in a museum. Whenever I go to another museum, I ask if they have any discount for people who work at my museum. Usually they don't, but most of the time they'll find a way to charge me a lesser rate anyway (the student rate, for example.)
