NEW *Updated* List of 100+ Amazing Senior Discounts

Today is August 31, 2018 and I have just updated my Super Saving Tips senior discounts list effective right now so it’s bigger and better than ever. Bonus: You don’t have to be 65+ to take advantage of a lot of these discounts as many retailers and services recognize 50 as the line for discounting to “seniors”. I love AARP: If you are the spouse of an AARP card holder (who is age 50+), you can get the discounts they offer no matter what your age. My own wife at 48 gets them!

I've updated my comprehensive list of senior discounts, with everything from dining to groceries and shopping to travel. For many, you don't have to be 65!

 

Many of your favorite places to shop and dine are offering these special discounts. Regardless of whether you feel like eating fast food or a steak dinner, shopping at high end specialty stores or major discount operations, keep this list handy but do keep in mind that these deals may vary based on location. Oh, and don’t forget to ask for the discounts! You may not ever be proactively offered discounts just because you are standing in line at the checkout, so ask!

Also, most places do not allow you to combine discounts, so if you have a coupon or other discount, confirm you can use both or be sure to do the math so you get the better discount.

  1. Thanks for the list! I hadn’t looked at car rental discounts before.
    Like your wife, I was also a young bride and benefited from my husband’s AARP card until I grew into my own. We use that card often for motel discounts, usually 10%.
    Amtrak has 10% off fares for seniors over 65. Children riding with adults have special fares, and if those can be combined, it could be a fun quick family trip. My parents took us and all the neighborhood children on a one-way train trip one weekday when I was young, riding thirty miles to where another parent picked us up to drive us home. We didn’t live in a city or with mass transport, so it was a big deal.

    • Great information, Louise, regarding Amtrak. You made me recall the time when my daughter was little and we took the train from our home in Central NJ into New York City, just for the ride. It was her first time on a real train. In this modern age of jet travel, a train ride is somehow a more interesting experience than you might think. Thanks for commenting.

  2. Oooooh great list! This’ll be a benefit of Fortysomething turning fiftysomething in a few years. 😉

  3. What a great list! I was thinking of writing something similar, along with student discounts and teacher discounts. A lot of people dread getting older but it does come with some nice perks!
