For over a decade, Chris has been writing about senior discounts and deals. He finds the hunt for discounts rewarding because it allows him to take care of older adults by offering them senior-specific pricing. As the son of two social workers, Chris has spent his whole life advocating for the betterment of others. When he isn’t researching senior discounts, Chris enjoys fishing, spending time with his sons, and rooting for his favorite team, the Portland Trail Blazers. Learn more about Chris here


  1. One nice person put this list together. It’s impossible to know about every discount in a country of 330million people. I think it is great that people are helping one another down here in the comments. I’m interested in Silver Sneakers, thank you to everyone who mentioned that. I have a friend who is only 49 and she has Silver Sneakers, joined two gyms! I need access to a pool, we got a ” Senior Center” here that was funded by taxes, but then you have to pay monthly just to walk in the door, and then huge prices for every class they offer. So you get charged three times by the time you’re in the pool. Huge disappointment. I wonder what states have the best places and programs that are better.
  2. Ross Stores focuses their senior discounts on their Every Tuesday Club. It’s a free program that seniors ages 55 and older can sign up for. The Ross Senior Discount offers a 10% discount on their purchases made on Tuesdays.
  3. I dropped AARP because of all their fake discount coupons they present as special to seniors. They’re the same discounts everyone gets in their throw away newspapers. I didn’t want any of their crumby free gifts either. The only worthwhile discount was 20 percent off the entire guest check at Denny’s any day of the week. Now reduced to 15 percent. I don’t want senior meals most restaurants offer, they always have significantly smaller portions. My appetite hasn’t declined with age. Who wants a free small coffee every other leap year! Too many conditions for too little reward.
  4. Consumer Cellular offers an AARP discount which continues every month, it’s about $2.50/month on our two phones, which have excellent service and plenty of data, texting, etc. Both phones after discount are just under $60 total for both. Excellent deal, the best I’ve found with no tricks and no continual price changes
  5. Bi-Lo Grocery Stores went out of business in 2021. Food Lion took over many of their stores but do not know if they offer discounts
  6. Cracker Barrel Restaurants has like 4 or 5 “mini meals” at a substantial savings (typically less than $5 w. drink) on their “children’s” menu. However, as it says on the menu, “for kids of all ages” = even adults can order off of it. I like the one that has a few fried shrimp, a couple of hush puppies and, IIRC, choice of side dish. Yummm!
  7. Re: Kroger discontinuing their sr. discount program .. I had talked to several of their employees at our local store after I unhappily 🙁 discovered they were no longer honoring it .. The employees told me that the problem was that some sr. shoppers were abusing the plan by lending their shopper’s discount scan card to family members, friends, etc. so they could get the sr. discount too even though they weren’t eligible for it (i.e. too young). PLEASE FOLKS – DON’T DO THAT AND RUIN SUCH PROGRAMS FOR ALL OF US THAT QUALIFY FOR THEM .. !
  8. I have Tello phone service. It’s on the Sprint network. Unlimited talk time. Unlimited text and 1GB of data surfing a month on the internet. Cost me $10.00 a month plus takes and brings my total to $12.10 a month in South Carolina. Been on it for several years
  9. ARC thrift stores offer certain color tagged items 50% off on Tuesdays to seniors here in Colorado. I’m not sure about other states, but you can always ask what days.
  10. I was originally looking for KOHLER TUBs….Rebates and Financial help…..None listed….there product is most expenses these days….I was hoping they would share some of there wealth….Oh Well…keep on looking…
    1. Worked at a plumbing store/showroom recently. Usually not the manufacturer that offers the discount, but the specific retailer. Ask for them for the discount, or they may just work the best price they can for your whole order or package your buying. ?
  11. Does anyone know which ones are offered to the dusabled to? In Ohio they offer golden buckeye cards to the disabled with more complex health issues (basically the ones who will probably never live long enough to be considered a senior) some places give the disabled the senior discount since the disabled, particularly those disabled make less than minimum wage, mine equates to $6.40 an hour through ssdi but they seem far and few. I’m always looking for any discount or coupon I can find because after paying rent and utilities without couponing I don’t even have enough for food for the whole month or any of my medical devices so any way to save money helps make ends meet or at least come closer to meeting.
    1. i would call the businesses i use the most often and inquire about it yourself so you know it to be accurate
  12. Many restaurants across the country are offering senior discounts on food, drinks or meals. Some require evidence of AARP membership, others just require proof of age. If your favorite restaurant isn’t listed below it is always worth asking when you order, as many offer senior discounts that aren’t advertised unless you ask!
    1. If you’re “medicare” able, and select an advantage program, many provide health memberships at places like LA fitness, YMCA’s and others. it’s great! I have full membership at LA Fitness at $0!
      1. And because of silver sneakers, I am now on a synchronized swimming team!!! Can you believe it? I thought I was just going to go play in the water. Oh yoy, what have I gotten myself into!!
  13. Also check out movie theaters (though, of course, many are not open now due to Covid). Check out the chains as well as the independents. They may not publicize the discounts.
  14. Thanks Some seniors would not know if it was not circulated to them Also, sometimes it seems like we are overlooked. So Thank You for what you do and everyone who looks out for us
      1. Albertsons grocery first Wednesday in some states. Thursday I’m others, so ask. 10% off your entire grocery purchase!
  15. The Subway at Queen Creek and Power Road no longer offers Senior Discounts. They used to but I was told today they changed their policy. I live in Trilogy at Power Ranch and have been going to this Subway for over 10 years. Will probably not go anymore and will notify residents also.
    1. Very helpful!! I’m almost 73 years old and I wish I would have known about these all these years!! Thank you very much please keep me updated
  16. Sprint gives a Senior discount – unlimited calls, text and data for around $70/month for 2 phones.
    1. Just turned 55 and I will ask everywhere I shop about my senior discount and smile with pride because it has been a journey as well a blessing to get the see it.
        1. Just got here to 55 myyself! That is why I am looking at the list! I have earned my discounts! HAHA!
          1. I just joined the Speed Limit crew myself April 1st. Yeah, thanks for all the info and blessings.
  17. As a new AARP card hold age 50 – would like to see more discounts for age 50 instead of having to wait till I am 55 or 60
      1. CDA? I checked with that “benefit finder” on the National Office of Aging’s (or whatever it is called) fed. gov. website and after putting in all the requested personal info. (inc. only 50% of the annual income I really have) it finished up to inform me, “congratulations .. you qualify for 0 benefits” .. 🙁 wth?
  18. I do like anything that get offers free coupons for senior discounts. I’m just grocery stores and restaurants but other things to
  19. You should offer GoodRx as a discount prescription program; it’s free, open to anyone, and has insane savings on many prescriptions. I was paying $60 for a nine-month supply when my company’s prescription program, for which I pay a fortune, wanted $900.
    1. Yes, everyone should check out GoodRx. My wife had a medication that was going to cost well over $300 under my employer’s insurance and we got it for about $130 with GoodRx. Their Gold plan for a few dollars a month makes the discounts even better. Now every time I’m going to fill a prescription, I check of the GoodRx app first. Seems different each time, but the saving are not “just a few dollars – it’s real money!”
    1. I have been on this plan for several years now. It’s been great! And T-mobile store salespeople have been awesome, alerting me to extra discounts when I wanted to add another line.
    2. I just signed up and so excited to be saving money. Now, I’m diggin’ the perks as my biological number rises.
  20. ROBIN’S WORLD LLC, THRIFT STORE located in the San Fernando Valley, CA… offers to persons 50+ “Fifty Cent Fridays!” Get great deals on everything.
    1. Where is Walmarts discount? I’m surprised they don’t offer something. I can’t believe that McDonald’s discount is a few cents off a cup of coffee. I got one this morning and the size of the cup shrank. Shame on them. The best discounts are the 10percent off total. Thanks
  21. Their insurance is great. No physical or medical conditions asked for. Premiums reasonable Pay promptly. Saved me from having to pay funeral expenses for an uncle who previously had no insurance. Preplanned the funeral and AARP sent the check directly to the funeral home since I listed it as beneficiary. No hassle. I have a policy myself.
      1. Ah, I wondered if AARP was ever going to have a competitor … looks like they now do! (btw many of us AARP members are NOT “retired”, even @ 60 .. I always kind of resented that name in the membership) .
  22. As a sales rep i use AARP’s hotel motel discounts,every week. This adds up for me & pays many times over for the ARP membership, although now more & more motels are offering a senior discount not rewuiring the AARP membership. Not sure if they still offer this since we haven’t gone to a movie in a while but at Regal movie theaters they had a deal for popcorn & drinks….not a big discount but I’ll take it.
  23. Steve: I’ve found dozens of great deals with my AARP card, but I’ve found I have to show it to reap benefits!
  24. I witnessed cashiers at Kroger giving senior discounts to their friends who definitely were not seniors. Can’t blame companies for discontinuing a discount program if it’s because employees are abusing it.
    1. Funny, I had just posted about that too .. However, the employees at our store told me it was the sr. customers who were abusing the program by lending their shopper’s cards to family members, friends, etc. who were not eligible for the sr. discount so they could avail themselves of it too. Basically they ruined the program for all of us. 🙁
    1. Walmart only gives discounts to employees or former employees who were employed for more than 15 years. The number of years may have recently been increased to 20.
        1. I noticed that a lot of Kroger employees, when they end their shift, get their groceries there as well. I asked one of them if they get any kind of employee discount, to which he replied “he** no!” .. sad …
  25. Look forward to being notified of 2019 if senior Digital discount books become available. Discounts add up for us Seniors. Thank uou
  26. Individual Grocery Outlets offer (10-15%?) on certain days of the month. I went in and bought 2 items and asked when was their “Senior Day.” ‘Went back on one of the 4 days of the month and got 15% off $100.! ‘love going there – fresh, organics, usually nice staff, usually plenty of parking, and nice varied selection of items… just bought some stocks (GO) and within 2 weeks it went up 11%!
  27. Seniors, wherever you go, grocery store, restaurants always inquire about a discount. It’s not automatic with all.
  28. AT&T gives AARP members a discount on wireless. I get a great rate on a hospital supplemental plan which I’ve had for seven years and has saved me far more than I spent. I use the discounts at restaurants at least once a month. My membership has paid for itself many times over. Those who thumb their noses at its value are probably not aware of how much they can save.
    1. Yes, yes, yes you have to ask! Unfortunately they won’t automatically tell you, I got that part, some people could be very put out by an offer for a senior discount especially if they’re older than they look But they can post a very Big sign next to the register stating what they offer for seniors (list age and requirements). Just thinking. It doesn’t seem to be done much anymore.
  29. Republic Wireless is the most affordable wireless by far. The plan I am on for the last 5 yrs is still about $12/mo. My wife’s includes more data + is $20. Not a senior discount, just good sense pricing.
  30. I really think its great people age 55+ get discount. They work hard just like seniors Age 65 +. They needed to have more discount for people who turn 55+ in other stores and Resturant with ID.
  31. One should not be required to be a member of AARP to receive any type of discount. Many seniors are cancelling or foregoing membership in this obvious right wing organization. They are well known for their Republican/GOP stance and have never criticized Donald Trump or Republicans, even when they talked about going back on their promise to not touch Social Security and Medicare. Not a peep out of the AARP when tax cuts for the wealthiest went into effect. Never a complaint each year there’s only 1% COLA increase or even those years there were no increases. Seniors should not have to support organizations that don’t support them in order to get discounts of any kind.
    1. AARP, the retirees organization, responded Thursday (AUG 2016) to a torrent of protests from members and advocacy groups by announcing that it would drop its membership in the American Legislative Exchange Council, the right-wing organization known as ALEC. AARP is NOT a right wing organization.
    2. I get my $10 membership back many times over and I don’t read their literature, it’s not required. Take what you want and leave the rest. Some deals are negotiated by AARP and that’s why they are exclusive to members.
    3. I agree with your comment. As a senior person with limited resources I feel forced to promote somethings I disagree with just to benefit from aids to supplement my cost of living. I feel taken advantage and forced promote somethings that disagree with my fundamental values.
      1. Private businesses can offer what they want. The cost of an aarp membership is the benefits offered. Use them for the discount and don’t read the magazine if it that much.
    4. Liberals tend to see AARP as conservative. Conservatives tend to see AARP as liberal. (Conservapedia rates AARP as a “a liberal interest group with a left-wing liberal bias.”) In reality, it would not be in AARP’s interest to hold a particular ideological slant and alienate themselves from a sizable portion of the senior population. AARP is focused on one thing: the welfare of retired persons. AARP isn’t fixated on politics like so many other organizations, and people, are.
      1. Lucky for those over 50, AARP focuses on the policies that affect us. Healthcare, Senior Housing, etc. People over 50 need an advocacy group on our side. If AARP was a right leaning organization, they’d be fighting for for-profit healthcare and the abolition of social security/medicare mirroring right-wing politicians.
      2. Agreed. I dropped AARP after 7 years because they promoted the so-called “Affordable Care Act” which I thoroughly researched and knew it wouldn’t be good–that it would NEVER save money, as promised by Obama. He promised you could keep your doctor and keep your plan. That it would save the average family $2500 a year. The opposite was true. People lost their doctors and plans–now only one plan is available in many areas. Doubled the cost. Doubled the deductibles. Not one Republican voted for it. Shows you AARP definitely has a Democrat stance.
        1. If you dropped AARP how are you on here to write this? We must real different things because when all was said & done affordable care act was better than not plan.If AARP isn’t for you, leave it.
    5. My boss was a Republican and he would NOT join AARP because they were Democrat. I am a Democrat and I love being a member of AARP for their discounts…and not political views.
      1. AARP are difinetly liberal,according to their magazine page36 their working with governors, state commissions and other policymakers to modify election laws, including to make it easier to vote by mail. Which Democrats in 14 States changed voting laws for mail in ballots by having less identity measures
    1. I just seen an ad for discount book for $20 when it becomes available you will be notified. You have to sign up to be notified.
  32. Why do some places offer discounts for AARP members only??? Businesses need to wake up and realize that not every senior is going to join AARP. I for one will never be an AARP member, ever.
    1. Agreed. I got AARP membership five years ago and only got a discount once in those five years. I get a lot of junk mail though to start fires in my back yard. My membership expires this month. I’m not renewing.
    2. I’m with you! I have AMAC and I’m not changing….used to have AARP. AARP negotiates prices in exchange for discounts they promote, as does AMAC, which I noted was absent from this report. One shouldn’t have to pay annual dues to anybody to get a discount if they want the senior business. Don’t these guys know how fast info spreads among the seniors, with or without the internet?
      1. My husband and I love AMAC, and the conservative values they promote. They, too, offer some substantial discounts through their affiliates. We found a new home and auto insurance company—Travelers—through AMAC, and we are quite pleased with their service! We highly recommend AMAC (Association of Mature American Citizens).
          1. After some 7 years with AARP I dropped them, switching to AMAC and the conservative values they promote.
      1. Reminds me of something concerning A.A.R.P. and Consumer Cellular phone co.. CC is always touting their “exclusive discounts” they have with/for A.A.R.P. members. I have CC’s flat rate unlimited flip phone plan (approx. $20 a month), and I get a “discount’ of like 88 cents (5% off) a month. WOOOHOOOO. Why even bother? That’s an insult, IMHO. I wrote a letter to the founder (who very recently has sold the co. off, btw) and told him that, IMHO, he needs to powwow with some of the bigwigs @ A.A.R.P. and see if he can get them to agree to reimbursing a 20% discount, at least. Now THAT would be something worth having and to tout .. No response from him, btw ..
    3. I joined AARP so I could save over $250 on a pair of glasses. Now I’m rediscovering that some of the dishes at my local Denny’s are pretty good—and at 15% off, the savings adds up. Since joining 3 months ago I’ve gotten exactly one mailer from AARP.
      1. Many of the senior citizen discounts are only made available through the advocacy provided by AARP. Discounts that otherwise would have never been given.
  33. Went to Burger King ordered $16. of food asked for senior discount, was denied because the manage said they don’t discount meal deals…..thought discount was on the money I spent not on what I bought….this restaurant was located in Springboro Ohio on route 73 AARP should make sure of their publication of who offers a true discount.
    1. why is 55 called a senior anyway. They are only seniors in housing and this need to change due to the vast number of babyboomers. They need to change it to 62.
      1. Some businesses give discounts to 55+ because they want their business. It’s not a contribution, it’ all about making money.
      2. We are the people who currently support both our children college loans and elderly parents home repairs because they can’t t afford it. Why say 55+ isn’t a senior? I’m supporting two different generations and could use a little break while doing so.
    2. Friend of mine (who is older than I am!) gave me a bunch of BK coupons from some ad circular she receives in the mail (I use a private mailing center, so I never receive such “junk” mail). Very nice discounts in there, inc. a Whopper meal with small fries and small drink for only $5, 2 Jr. Whoppers with 2 drinks and 2 fries for $4, etc. They also have chicken sandwich meal coupons, as well as chicken nugget meals, for about the same low $. That seems about the only way to be able to afford BK these days, given how much the cost of beef has risen and the recent necessary upping of employees’ pay. One issue I have with BK is that the Whoppers no longer include cheese, unless you request it and pay extra for it. Back in K.C. when I was in college in the early ’90s, Whoppers ALWAYS came with cheese on them. I have argued with them over that change at least once before. I also suddenly realized, after ordering a Jumbo Jack @ Jack in the Box a month or two ago, that they don’t come with cheese either unless you request and pay extra for it. GRRRR!
  34. I agree with writers who noted that, 65 and 65+ is a very glorious age to see, and how often would someone use these discounts. They’re not going to buy clothing everyday, or food, everyday. What is 5% or 10% for a senior. Yes, we are thankful for discounts, but, most of these places have stopped their discounts. Papa John’s have stopped the AARP years ago, with explanation when asked. I am a twenty-year veteran teacher still working, and when you ask about a senior discount, they look at you, disdainfully, most of the vendors. Perks exist for some of these vendors, but, they treat you like scum.
    1. How you’re treated really depends on where you are. When my husband & I were traveling in the Carolina’s a few years ago, most places (fast food, admissions to sites, etc.) kindly ASKED if we wanted the senior discount! My husband was over 65, but I was still in my 50’s… with grey hair. Each time I was so surprised and really appreciated it. I’ve never had anyone ask us here in Maryland. My problem now is I never remember to ask for a discount.
      1. Like you, I usually forget to ask for a senior discount. However, here in New York I’m often automatically given a senior discount without asking–how good that feels! Also, when I was married my husband always asked for two senior tickets at movie theaters and, although he was a senior and I was not at the time, the tickets were never denied. Surprised to read from others that they’re looked at disdainfully asking for a senior discount–that’s unfortunate–I’ve never had that experience here in New York or in Maryland when I visit my son. I’ve also found that in most states, many merchants (especially hotels) who offer senior discounts to AARP members, will also do so for non-member seniors if you ask.
  35. I would like to find out, why AARP, doesn’t try to help Seniors with the increasing cable TV bills, and internet. Truly with the power of senior citizens some type of action could be taken. Spectrum, Time warner, Charter whatever they call themselves now, could give some sort of discount. Probably they don’t want to to pay CEO 95 million a year.
      1. Glad you asked this question, because we are older than 65 and we are paying a lot, but every time I call , they tell me they don’t have any discount, and is really going up, is like a monopoly .
    1. You are right on target with the Spectrum/Charter they are just to big to care about us little old citizens. They are out to make the big bucks that is their bottom line and they do not care about their customers. If you have them as a provider they slam you with their commercials constantly. I am really sick of them.
      1. Seniors are the only ones still watching! I have the Silver pack and my kids only watch Netflix! Go figure…
    2. I agree about internet and cable TV rates. Where I live, Spectrum is the only choice and there’s no antenna TV — towers too far away. Here in FL so many seniors live in stucco/cement apartment buildings and an antenna doesn’t really work there. And a dish is not permitted. Basic cable should be included in the rent/HOA fees like it was in so many apartment complexes about 10 years ago. Cable has gotten out of hand along with all the other “pay services” like Hulu, Netflix, et al. Now I find I enjoy reading a book!
      1. Oh, don’t get me started on that .. My apt. complex on the very edge of Dallas Co. (btw) now REQUIRES that all residents have Spectrum Wi Fi, and have added $89 to our monthly rent as a “recurring charge” for same. They call it an “entertainment package”. As for me, I was happy with my wired AT&T high speed (less money and more secure, not being Wi Fi) and free antenna T.V. If you get one of those POWERED antennas (“panels”) that attaches to the inside of your window (facing the nearest towers) with suction cups (e.g. @ Best Buy) you will be amazed at the # of channels you can pick up. Here it was 99 when I first moved in 3 years ago, but for some reason more like only 70 now. TX needs to make the “mandatory” charge for wi fi high speed service by landlords illegal – we should have freedom of choice!
      1. Why someone would want to watch hundreds of mindless channels full of commercials is beyond me. Love my Netflix! No commercials, I get to watch whatever I want, and it’s 20% of what cable costs.
      2. When my cable bill increased I called the provider. Explained that I am paying for channels I don’t view. Told them as a senior I watch my expenses closely. They are now giving me a discount each month for three years for being a loyal customer. It pays to negotiate. Be pleasant and don’t complain, you have nothing to lose!
      3. I cut my cable and went to antenna tv. I cut my landline and only use a cellphone. I had to keep my Comcast for Internet, but bought my own router and modem. Good luck!
        1. For those who (still) have a landline telephone, best route to go IMHO is MagicJack .. You just keep it plugged into a USB port on your (desktop) computer and can call anywhere in the U.S. for like $35 a YEAR. I have mine set up the other way, which is by plugging their jack into my landline phone (and electric receptacle) .. Phone rings when a call comes in and you talk just like before … Very clear reception, about the same as with the old line.
  36. Certainly enjoy many of the wonderful senior discounts and, indeed, hope these will become even better as time goes on. The above mentioned said, the focus should, perhaps, now be on helping seniors to get interesting well-paying jobs so they will be able to earn a living and support themselves.
    1. I agree that some discounts on necessary utilities would help so much. I was a secretary, my paltry retirement savings are gone and my SS puts me well below the poverty level. I never partake of most Senior Discounts because who has money to go out to eat?
  37. The local high school provides grandparents with a gold card which gets them into high school sporting events either at a great discount or entirely free (not sure which.
  38. I love all the offers u offer. Thank yoi very mich. In the future I will make good use of these discounts. Thank you very much.☺
    1. Well said Ernestteena. So many stores are closing due to more online shopping. There’s something about being able to go into a store and see and touch before you buy.
  39. Panda Express offers 10% Senior Discount but you have to ask for it Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers offers a 10% Senior Discount Culvers offers a 5% Senior Discount At Lowes and Home Depot I get a 10% former military discount. Al’s Rv Service and Supply in Phoenix offer a Discount (Cannot remember if it is a Senior or Military or First Responder discount.)
  40. Your Senior discounts for cell phones does not list Verizon. Verizon has a special discounted plan for Seniors 55+.
    1. Verizon does NOT have special discounts across the USA.. The 55+ plan is only offered in 5 states!
        1. Verizon currently offers the 55+ plan in 6 states; must have a Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Texas or Detroit, Michigan, billing address on your account.
    2. TracFone.. no senior discount, that I’m aware of, but using auto-refill: Unlimited Talk and Text 2G mobile data per month Unused data carries over $28/mo As good or better coverage than my Verizon phone for work
  41. I would like to know where I can purchase discount movie tickets for AMC theaters . I would like to know what are senior discount time/day for AMC theaters .
    1. Normally senior discounts at regular movie is matinee price if you go to matinee as a senior you do not get discount because it is already. That is how most movies work AMC or any
    2. AMC has $5 Tuesday during the day in Chicago. Don’t know if it’s chain wide but doesn’t hurt to ask.
    1. My dd in Brooklyn ny gives me a discount either senior or aarp. But I now see it’s a free donought with coffee.
  42. Would someone make an alphabetized list of discounts please. I can see myself sitting in my car looking for a discount on where ever I am in line to make a purchase. I just usually ask if that location gives a senior a discount. If not, I just say “you should” and drive off. BTW I noticed a little while ago that Amazon is now selling senior products. Apparently they are pricing items as if we are all wealthy! I’m not and never will be. I shop where I can find the best price. Thanks to whomever put this list together! It helps!
    1. Yes. that’s right and their discounts are for any time of day or day of week. A discounted senior citizen ticket at a Regal Theater is the same cost as a child’s ticket.
      1. Yes. It’s a great program! T-Mobile is the bomb! Also get T-Mobile discounts every Tuesday on various food, events and stores. Even $.10 a gallon off Shell gasoline. Right now, they have a free Doritos taco at Taco Bell once a week and a free iced latte at Dunkin Donuts each week. For me and my daughter, just those two perks are worth $50 a month!
        1. That brings up an interesting question I haven’t seen addressed on here .. If you are entitled to a sr. discount, can you also usually use it with anyone who accompanies you to the place you use it at, esp. restaurants, theaters, etc. ? or, do they have to pay full price?
  43. if your intentions are to help out the Seniors Put out 20% to 25% percent discount once a month Won’t hurt your Business…. Think about it how much can a older person eat! Or how much Clothes they going to buy C’mon Not much people even live to see 60 yrs old . Open Up and Give More
  44. I appreciate any discount but if you’re smart enough to avoid life’s hurdles and live to the age of 65 (about 90% of my friends never made it out of their 40s) I personally think you deserve a larger discount than 10%.
    1. Here in New York some merchant discounts are far less than 10% and make very little difference, but I’ll take what I can get. The cost of living is high, and living on social security and a tiny pension is a struggle to meet my expenses, so sure it would be great to see a discount larger than 10%.
  45. If you are from the Bay Area- California. The Food Mill in Oakland offers 10% off all your supplements for seniors!
  46. Bashas grocery stores give a 10% senior discount on the first Wednesday of every month. They are called Arizona’s home town grocer so I don’t know if they are only in Arizona. I really take advantage of this day by also using coupons which they double up to 50 cents.
      1. Bashas’ site says customers 55 and older can save an additional 10% off their purchase on the first Wednesday of every month, I didn’t know they still doubled coupons. Thanks Brenda!
  47. The list of restaurants giving senior discounts are all places that no one should ever eat at much less a senior. Everyone of those places are guaranteed to take at least 10 years off life expectancy. Im surprised that an organization such as yours supposedly benefitting seniors would even suggest these places.
    1. As a treat these places are ok. Do you have a list of healthy restaurants that offer senior discounts?
    2. Many of the places listed have healthy options or salads that you can put less dressing on if one chooses so. Matil
    3. This is for those who will eat at these places regardless of what people like you say, so why don’t we just live and let live.
    4. Boston Market offers senior discounts, and their food is quite good. I’m not sure, however, whether the discount is for certain days or not; you’d have to ask.
  48. Wow, I gave the same senior list to mu Grandmother in 2013 .and about 80% of the savings fron the most are now gone!
    1. Hi Olivia- thanks for coming back! It has been disappointing to see businesses drop or decrease their senior discounts over the years, we try to keep this list as updated as possible. Our mantra is to “ask, ask, ask” anywhere you go about any senior or veterans discounts businesses may offer. Best- Amie

      1. So does the food you buy in grocery stores, organic is more expensive than not organic so how do you choose. Also for seniors it’s a sometimes thing to go out and eat or enjoy a meal not many can afford it all the time.
  49. Dunkin Donuts offers a senior discount. LOL they offered it to my husband once (and at the time he wasn’t yet a senior.)
    1. Fulton Bank in Chester County PA has a free checking account & free checks for seniors. I am a custpmer. I think the age is 50 years but you may want to verify.
    2. Check with Chase – I receive free checking and checks when needed at no charge, Don’t know if this is just a local policy but it never hurts to ask.
    3. Freedom Credit Union in Philadelphia and suburbs has free checking including checks offered to seniors.
  50. I heard that Albertsons Market gives. Senior discount on Wednesday’s or something like that! Can you please verify? Thank you very much! A Yelper iam!
    1. Hello – I believe the Safeway/Albertsons discounts are: 1st Tue – 10% senior discount 15th – 10% Military Discount (This is for CA & AZ)
