Ask Granny’s up to date weekly list of discounts and coupons for seniors.

This week’s senior discounts and coupons give money off in a range of useful areas – from health and wellbeing to travel and relaxation.

Shytobuy is offering a catchall 10% discount on everything in its store for the month of January. Simply enter the promo code JAN13 at checkout to take advantage. Shytobuy supplies a range of over the counter medical products for common “embarrassing” conditions – that is, the kind of thing you might think twice about broadcasting in the chemist or pharmacy.

Wine Hound is offering free delivery on all orders worth more than £100 – and is also offering a £15 discount on every case of champagne purchased (12 bottles). Wine Hound takes advantage of its bargaining power in the market to get hold of fine wines and champagnes at reduced prices; and also offers a wine hunter service for its customers, picking out wines suited to their palate.

For new grandparents, particularly if Mum and Dad are relying on you for financial support, Halfords is worth a look this week as well. The well0known store is currently offering a 10% discount on all baby and child products. Halfords Autocentre, the mechanics and garage side of the brand, is also offering cut-price MOTs – an offer exclusive to the website, so make sure you go there direct to take advantage.

Winter takes its toll on the skin, particularly as we age. If you suffer from dry or chapped skin as a result of the cold snap we’ve been enjoying, then it’s worth looking at The Body Shop, which is offering as much as 50% off lines from its 2012 stock range. The Body Shop is also offering a blanket 3 for 2 on all skin care products; and has ramped up the discounts in its January sale to as much as 70%.

Travellers may be interested in the P and O Ferries website, which is currently offering a 20% discount to all customers who make an early booking. The company is also offering a range of specific discounts and offers on minicruises, or on short breaks to nominated cities.

Travel is popular at this time of year. The kids are back at school, prices to popular destinations are subject to January sales and incentive discounts. Some of your regular holiday stops may be subject to discount through any of the major retailers: so it is always worth shopping around before you decide on a specific package.

And finally, of course, there’s that New Year’s health kick to consider. Only who wants to start denying themselves the odd treat when it’s snowy outside? Fortunately, some high street restaurant chains have decided to capture both markets by providing discounted healthy January options of popular menu dishes. Check out Pizza Express for an example – the nationwide pizza chain is giving  its “Fresh Start” menu a flying start by offering three courses for £12.95!
