Known for their signature Happy Meals and burgers, McDonald’s is a favorite fast food stop for people of any age. However, despite their low prices, the company offers little in terms of discounts for seniors. In the locations that do offer a senior discount, these are mostly limited to beverages, which tend to cost less than $2.
McDonald's Senior Discount
Unfortunately, McDonald’s doesn’t have a company-wide senior discount. However, from the locations we called across the U.S., we found that several local McDonald’s will offer seniors daily discounts of 22 to 33 cents on coffee and small-sized soft drinks.
An Arizona location stated seniors can obtain a 30-cent discount on beverages.
A Texas location discounts their beverages by 22 cents for seniors.
A Delaware location discounts their beverages by 33 cents.
This discount is available every day for seniors over the age of 55, though it is not explicitly stated on McDonald’s website. We recommend contacting your local McDonald’s to see if they honor discounts on coffee and beverages.
