Discounts for Boomers & Seniors
View Our Newsletter
There are thousands of discounts for boomers, seniors and retirees. The age often varies as to when you can qualify for a boomer and 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 discount 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 every day. Ages 50+
- SeaWorld Orlando: $3.00 off one-day tickets (50+)
- Many airlines offer discounts for seniors 62 or older
- Midas Auto Service: many locations offer a 10% discount if you are 55 or over
- Movie Theaters: Regal Entertainment Group offers theater tickets at its 546 theaters at a 30% savings if you are at least 60 years old
The combined savings to older Americans who regularly take advantage of discounts 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 your buck. Also some franchise locations do not offer the same discounts as company stores.

We ask 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.
Some additional discounts for senior savings:
Banks Many banks offer discounts for seniors often providing free checking accounts and free checks. Check your bank to see if they offer free travelers checks, special rates on savings accounts and use of bank services like faxing, copy machines, etc.
Cruise Lines Most cruise lines offer discounts for seniors. Ask to see if you qualify.
Museums offer discounts for seniors but often for certain days or times.
Movie Theaters: Most offer discounts to seniors but often for certain showing times.
Discounts vary from place to place. One of our readers wrote to give us some examples: In Albany, GA Wendy's give FREE drinks, not 10 % off like some Wendy's say in SC. Taco Bell in Albany, GA will give a FREE drink or 10% off whichever you request. Burger King, McDonald's and Hardees give discounts on drinks.
