Bag more benefits – 21/06/2017

Posted By Marilynh / June 20, 2017 / 0 Comments

 

Here is some background with regard to the YEI discounts, savings and benefits that are featured in the YEI Directory.

YEI contacts many businesses during the course of the month with regard to pensioner discounts.  Some businesses are unresponsive, but others acknowledge that seniors, retirees, pensioners and baby boomers have “earned it”, and are happy to give back to the senior market with regard to offering savings, benefits and value-adds.  

We urge you to support the businesses in the YEI Directory.  If you, the readers, do not support these businesses, it is possible that the business will not see the benefit in continuing to offer a senior discount.   

All of the senior benefits in the YEI Directory have been verified.  If for any reason, the benefit has not been verified, such as rates, TV licences etc – we do indicate this in the listing.

So here we go – a selection of YEI’s great deals, savings and benefits specifically for South African over 60s.  From winter specials to wineries, from funeral related services to owning a franchise – and so much more.  Something for everyone in this selection of superb offers on You’ve Earned It

Don’t forget to  browse through the YEI Directory to check out countless other carefully categorised pensioner value-adds, savings and benefits.  Go to the YEI homepage.  The YEI Directory is clearly marked in the top orange bar.  Using the drop down arrows,  choose your location and category, and click on “search”.

Robertson Winery – its beauty is almost as good as its wines!
Robertson, Western Cape

At Robertson Winery, winemaking is a natural process.  From the soil it is grown in, the water that feeds the vine, and the elements each harvest is exposed to, the grapes are the product of many influences before they are even turned into wine. Add the human touch to the process and the real relationship begins.  It is the collaboration between nature, workers, farmers, and winemakers that implies a product to be shared and enjoyed together.  Robertson Winery offers a fabulous pensioner discount that is available every first Wednesday of the month at their cellar door.
