https://www.couponchief.com/guides/savings_guide_for_those_with_disability  Coupon Chief - Retail Savings Guide

           “CouponChief.com’s Retail Savings Guide for People with Disabilities provides a detailed look at ways those with disabilities can stretch their dollars. Discounts, services, and special offers are widely available, but very few businesses will mention their willingness to help simply because the risk of offending someone is just too big to risk saying something. Managing a disability

can be tough, but you don't have to handle it all by yourself. The bottom line is: if you can save money, why not do it?”
