Applebee’s: 10-15% off (varies by location) MAY require Golden Apple Card (60+) verified

Applebee’s Restaurants offer senior discounts at many locations, but they don’t seem to have a policy across-the-board to govern these discounts.  If you’re not sure about your local Applebee’s Restaurant, call ahead and ask.

  1. I have Applebee’s golden Apple card, and in the back of states 65 +. The Applebee’s in Delaware accept the card. It’s 10% off.
  2. I have been a member of AARP for 20 years and have never used any type of discount card, I just paid whatever the ticket called for. Now my kids have encouraged me to fill out a discount card or ask for a discount or do they accept senior discounts. Since I have learned from my kids about the discounts for seniors, now everywhere my wife and I go we make it known that we are seniors and not forgetting to ask for the discount. Since we have saved so much on discounts I am we love to ask or show a card letting them know we want a senior discount.
  3. Does Applebee’s give a senior discount on the combos that are 2 entrees for $20 or $25? Asking about the Riverhead and the one on vets highway near MacArthur airport. Thanks
  4. Re the Applebee’s Gold Card: I’m 79-years-old, live in Dracut, MA, and I would like to get a Gold Card, how do I do that. Is it a discount card? Do I have to pay for it? Is it an actual credit card or is it just a discount card?
  5. I agree…a list should be available which states which Applebee’s offer a senior discount. I can assure you those stores would get the most business. A win-win for all!!
  6. I live in Columbia SC one Applebees offers a senior discount and the other doesn’t. Corporate should offer a senior discount at all locations.
  7. The Applebee’s we go to Now says we need a Golden Apple card. NOWHERE can I find a place to get a card. They All say corporate doesn’t issue card. Does this mean more GREED? No more Seniors discount. More bonus for the CEO? Figures.
  8. Why would a restauarant chain the huge size of applebees give senior discounts in a state such as florida where the majority of the population are seniors. Things that make you go hum. Well sounds like bad business and discrimination to me. You can offer it at some locations ? To many old people in florida i guess. Its just bad business.
    1. No senior discounts here in Houston Texas at the location on Northloop west location. The waiter did not give my spouse and I a valid reason as though he was being untruthful . If these places do not offer discounts they should not place their name on the list.
  9. I live in Macon, GA area (there are maybe 3 Applebees here). I am 60 years old and my husband is 63. I had to ask for the discount, and received it on meal portion of order after being made to feel like I wasn’t really old enough and told that the manager decided to be nice and give us one since we asked. It’s hard enough to ask, but then their doubt and words were harder.
    1. Macon – Zebulon Rd. Gladly gave Senior and Veteran’s discount to our party as applicable when we asked? Senior was defined as over 55. 10% discount. Asked two weeks later at Eisenhower Parkway and had to request twice before waitress agreed to ask manager who allowed discount but said they normally don’t discount. That’s okay, Eisenhower manager would not turn down blaring music and allowed acouple to make out in a booth- including straddling one another. We can go to Zebulon Rd. In future.
    1. I just called Applebee’s corporate, Even they dont know how to get a card, She did say only participating restaurants offer the card, And the restaurant should be able to get you the card, I will be trying the next time I go to Applebees. And IF I dont get a card, there will be a very large notice to ALL people, so that Applesbee’s takes their name off the discount list. So far I have NOT EVER got a discount at their restaurant, at multiple locations.
    1. I greatly appreciate that Applebee’s has this policy, I hope more business adopt similar appreciation programs for our men and women who fought for their freedom so they are able to have a chance to own a business. Further more, why not give them special notice other than just Veterans Day ( after all you’ve served more than one day,) Risking you’re lives for America’s freedom, GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU! ?
      1. Very good point guess they really don’t care what veterans did just take it for granite have 3700 restaurants and are money hungry to give everyday
  10. Can you please clarify the current age for senior discount/ golden apple card, what the card looks like, how long it is valid, and how can I get one?
  11. I would like to know how to get the Golden Apple Card. I live in NJ and Have an Applebees in Somers point Mayslanding Millville
  12. I’d like to know why there is no prices for the beverages in the menu? Like lemonade, sodas etc.
  13. We were at Applebee’s in Venice Florida yesterday and I asked the waitress how to get a golden apple card for the senior discounts. She said we either have to go up north and get one or go to the DMV. Yes you read that right she said the DMV that confused me too. Not sure if the DMV knows they sell Golden Apple cards to Applebee’s!
  14. We came all the way from Grand Rapids MI to dine at Applebee’s in Ockeechobee to meet some special friends. we were denied a senior discount, so sad. 2/21/2018
  15. Is this Applebee’s card a credit card or is it a discount card? How do you get one in restaurant or apply online? Is it true you have to be 55 or 60 to get the discount? I’ve been to some restaurants and I’ll just say I’m not in my 40s but I’m not quite to 55 yet either but, they see that I am handicapped, parked in a handicap space with handy cap tag, have problems walking and have a service animal and they’ve never been rude about any paying for my service animal is considered which I must say very big Praises about but say you know is there a chance that you would qualify for our veterans or seniors discount and I like well I don’t for the veterans and they said if you don’t mind can we see your driver’s license and AC I’m in in there in that range and they go ahead and honor it. Which I appreciate because until my health got really bad I was a disaster responder responder in our region. Yes I went out but I did paperwork and things and some of the people there knew me and they were proud that I did what I could to help my community. I love Applebee’s they’re one of the few places I can get something to eat with my health that doesn’t upset my stomach. I’M NOT putting down other restaurants but they do have a soup I love that’s GREAT!!!! I I am the kind of person who always tries to be respectful and courteous of those you may have allergies to K-9’s, so I always call ahead and ask for the manager and let them know I have a service animal and is there any way I could be off to the side in a corner in a booth where my dog can go underneath instead of at a table out where it seems that people not all but some take offense because they don’t understand what their job is and what they can do. The manager has always said let me know when you’re going to be headed this way give me about 30-40 minutes notice and will do that I know that’s not their policy but whereas I’m trying to be gracious & accommodating for other guests they have always been willing to try and work with me and if they’re really busy I’m pretty flexible on times I try to let him know far enough in advance. The first time I went in I was by myself and it was early and it was slow and I called and said I would like to speak with the manager when I get there and that wasn’t a problem and I explain my situation and they said well thank you for taking the time to explain that and I said if there’s ever any questions I would be happy to answer them for you your staff if a customer ever says anything to you or another manager please let them know if they’re willing to be open minded and kind and listen to me I will be more than happy to let them know what my service animal does and how he saves my life. Because I feel education is always the best thing. So if you could educate me on your policies about the discount card and I know they can vary from location to location and that’s at least I would have a general idea and understanding of how it works. It is just my dad now so we try to do at least one night a week or we go out he is a retired veteran is that something different from this just count or is it the same thing. I would appreciate hearing from you. I learned about your program from The Senior, while on Clark Howard’s website. Thank you for your time it is greatly appreciated. Please keep up the good work with all your soups but especially the French Onion.
  16. 60+??? A senior citizen is 55+!!! Way to ruin it for the beginning of my golden years! I’ll eat somewhere else thanks! ?
  17. In Pittsburgh, PA, Applebee’s do not off an AARP senior discount, but manager gave us an Applebee’s discount card which is good for 10% off at any Applebee’s. Always ask.
  18. Federal Way, Washington’s Applebee’s on S. 320th Street still has the Golden Apple 10% discount. They no longer offer the card, but honor a discount request when “Golden Apple” is mentioned by the customer.
