Senior Discount Website Targets Florida Market

Discount Database Gives Senior Citizens in Florida Collected Information on Local and National Deals, as Well as Adds Some Entertainment Value to Site

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - Every day, Sciddy LLC adds senior discounts for regions throughout the U.S. Now, Sciddy is focusing its efforts on expanding an already 2,000-plus-business database for the Florida market, specifically calling businesses in the Jacksonville, Tampa and Fort Myers regions with a goal to find at least 700 new discounts.

Sciddy.com offers a way for senior citizens in Florida to discover discounts that are available in their local community. Listed on the site are Florida businesses in the food, entertainment, travel, health and education industries that offer discounts to people age 50 and over.

The site's mission is to recognize seniors -- the largest, most viable buying group in America -- and the active lifestyles and well-defined tastes they enjoy. Businesses continue to customize their plans to recognize seniors. Whether senior citizens are retiring to the warmer climate or spending a majority of their year in the South, Florida continues to be a major market for senior discounts -- over 17 percent of its 18.5 million population is at least age 65 and over, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

"With a significant portion of Florida's population being over 50 years of age, Sciddy reaches out to baby boomers and senior citizens every day by making them aware of the senior discounts available in their community," said Mike Hillyer, Director of Sales and Press Relations.

Although Sciddy strives to provide the most complete, accurate and up-to-date database of senior discounts for goods and services, the company also plans to add entertainment to their site by creating "Sciddy Games," an area where anyone can test their knowledge and try to defeat their friends' high scores in games like Word Search, Sudoku, Mah Jong and Hangman.

Visitors are encouraged to submit any discount(s) they have found that are not already listed on Sciddy.com. Florida businesses can even contribute their own discount(s) to the site to be found by potential customers. Discounts can also be shared on both Facebook and Twitter.
