According to the November 28 article "Ross Dress for Less Is Under Fire for Doing This to Shoppers Without Asking", the company provides it's weekly 55+ Tuesday Discount to customers who are at least 55 years old.

This discount is only available to Ross customers who meet the age requirement. On Tuesdays, customers within this age range receive a discount of ten percent off of their purchases; however, one shopper was taken aback when she saw the discount on her receipt.

Jennifer explains in a video that she posted to TikTok on November 15 that she had stepped into a Ross store to pick up a few items that totaled close to fifty dollars' worth.

From the article:

"[Then the cashier said], 'Wait a minute, it's going to be $44," she explains in the video, adding that she didn't initially think anything of it. But when she got to her car, she realized the cashier had applied the 55+ Tuesday Discount. "I mean, I'm not mad at it, because hey, that's $7.50 that I didn't have to pay, but he didn't ask me," she says. "He didn't ask me my age…do I look 55 to you? God, I hope not."
