Discounts for Seniors
Hundreds of discounts you may not know about. Screen down to see them.
There are all kinds of discounts for seniors. The age often varies as to when you can qualify for a senior
discount but it is usually 50 as it is with AARP members, or sometimes 55 or even 60+. Often just showing a driver’s license or other identification will allow you a senior discont but many establishments and services ask you to register to get a card identifying you as a senior eligible for any senior discount they offer.
To show the difference in qualifying ages here are some examples of senior and travel discounts.:
- Amtrak Everyday.15% discount on adult rail fare with some exclusions. Ages 62+
- Greyhound 10% discount for adults 55+
- Best Western At least 10% off regular room rates Ages 55+
- Banana Republic 10% discount everyday. Ages 50+
The combined savings to older Americans who regularly take advantage of disconts for seniors and particularly travel discounts can be in the thousands of dollars per year.
Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store, restaurant or company provides a senior discount. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for you buck. Also some franchise locations do not offer the same discounts as company stores.
We invite any of our readers to tell us about senior discounts they have uncovered as well as to correct any errors in this section. Please note some of these senior discounts and travel discounts may have changed. We would appreciate your pointing this out to us so we can adjust the information appropriately.
