101 Senior Discounts You've Never Heard Of

101 Senior Discounts You’ve Never Heard Of

Senior discounts are everywhere…you just need to ask!

elderly man with senior discounts hatWhile waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Arby’s the other day, I overheard him ask for his senior discounts. The girl at the register smiled and charged him less. When I asked him what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. WOW!

Being of ‘that’ age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the senior discount too.

This prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various senior discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many senior discounts there are,  and how some of them start at the young age of 50.

And while many folks know to ask for their AAA discount, or their AARP discount, many of these senior discounts are available without having to be a member or show any credentials.  Nice!

Remember: YOU must ASK for your senior discount!  Enjoy!

AT & T Wireless has a 200 minute cellular plan for seniors for $29.99 + taxes/fees.

Not a Senior discount, LensCrafters offers 30% off total frames and lenses with AAA. Often is better deal than special sales they offer.

Not a Senior discount, LensCrafters offers a AAA discount off frames and lenses. Often a better deal than special offers by LensCrafters, especially if you are like me and always pick the most expensive frame!

Please fact check before you try and get any discounts! Especially Kmart! The first few I checked were false
