Age pays: A comprehensive guide to senior discounts
These charts detail discounts for seniors by age in categories including restaurants, retail, grocery, travel, entertainment, and more.
Starting at age 50, seniors can cash in on numerous price cuts just for being born on or before the date, month, and year that qualify for the bargain. To collect on most discounts, just flash an ID (be assertive and request the special deal), although a few require membership in AARP.
The comparison tables that follow showcase discounts allotted to seniors in a variety of product and service categories.
I AM PASSING THIS LIST ON TO MY FRIENDS. KNEW ABOUT SOME OF THE
COMPANIES THAT ARE LISTED BUT NOT ALL OF THEM. THIS IS A GREAT
ADVERTISING GIMMICK FOR THEM.
While I don't frequent most of these nor are many of them in my area, don't count on it !! You have to ask for it. I don't look 65 so if there's a discount, it's given reluctantly. I'm not pulling out my license for a cup of coffee !!
For travelers & hotels/motels, I used to have both an AARP and AAA card. I dropped AARP - they give a bigger discount via AAA plus the fact if I have car trouble, AAA will take care of it. AAA also has discounts and you don't have to be a 'senior' to get some of these discounts.
Don't tell OBummer about any senior discounts, he'll comeup with a tax or fee to slap on us.
Everytime he picks up that dam pen, it costs us. When was the last time a congressmen asked us what we wanted , Not what is going tobe dictated to us.
