Where Do You Get Senior Discounts?

I was surprised to learn of some business's that give senior citizens discounts. Quite often, all you need to do is ask. I only know of a couple though, does anyone want to share with me where they usually get senior citizens discounts? The pharmacy I go to is one I know of, and a grocery store gives seniors a discount on tuesdays, where i live (10%). There are probably a lot more. I even heard of a fast food chain that does, but I haven't checked it out to know for sure. Thanks for all replies!

It's sad that you can only get them once a week! You all deserve it, IMO! Check out All I Saw Cookware online; they are a small specialty kitchen/coffee/tea/gift store in Wasilla AK. They ALWAYS give a senior 10% discount. Not all inventory is online because they get SO MUCH stuff, but carry kitchen items from Le Creuset, Heinkel (knives and cookware) Spode China, Progressive, Norpro, April Cornell Clothing and Linens, WONDERFUL bulk coffee and teas, Villaware and Krups appliances, Capresso Machines, YOU NAME IT! And ask about their candy too.....toll Free Line: 1-866-376-3177 or check out www.allisawcookware.com; PS I used to work there, and everyone is great! You can tell them Kelly sent you!

I would ask over the phone before you try it online.....as with any company. It is hard to verify age online!

What I would like to know is when does one qualify to get a Sr discount. I am turning 54 soon and certainly don't think of myself as a Senior yet....but my husband is older than me and just wondered when he can take advantage of discounts.

I am 60. I've found that you need to ask what the age might be for the senior discount. Different grocery stores have different ages.

Long John Silvers seafood is one reastaurant that has a discount for seniors..

The best discount, I hear, is at the senior center where you can get a meal for not much money. Also, ours here in PA give coupons for $20 worth of produce at the farmer's market.

Dont be afraid to ask. I recently learned that Rite Aid has senior discount (age 60) on Tuesdays. It is 10% off anything you buy.

Best of luck

McDonald's has a reduced price for coffee for seniors. Bob Evans, Denny's, and Ponderosa have a senior discount or reduced prices (for reduced portion size). Some are effective at age 50, others age 55. State Parks also have a Golden Passport. You might check with AARP for other discounts.

My husband always gets Senior discount at McDonalds, he is 48.

I get a discount at Goodies Dept. store on Wednesdays, and I will be 50 in June.

Senior discounts don't ever insult me! I love it!

At age 61 I don't feel old either but eagerly seek and use all the senior discounts I can. So far I use these:

Wendy's

Golden Corral

Ponderosa

Bob Evans ~ senior menu

Kroger 5% on Tuesday

One of our banks has a senior program providing free checking and the checks as well. Each bank varies in what it offers.

We will use the senior discount a La Quinta hotel in CA this week for the first time.

Our county offers a property tax discount at age 65 as well.

Check with your pharmacy and car repair/maintenance dealer.

Tips

Don't hesitate to ask since the worst anyone can say is "we have none".

Many places that have discounts don't give them unless the customer asks for the discount each time. <frown>

Debbie, the senior discount age varies anywhere from 50 - 65. You simply will have to ask if it is not posted.

Most fast food places give some kind of discount, But you have to ask!! McDonalds and Burger King give discounted drinks. Taco Bell gives free drinks. Pizza Hut and many other restaurants give 10% off. Wendy's usually gives 10% off but occassionaly you'll find one that will give free drinks. Ages vary, but usually it's 55. ASK, ASK!!

Thanks for this forum to get more ideas of who is giving Senior Discounts. I get one at Burger King but it does vary by store. Most fast food places will give you something. Chick-fila gives a Senior Drink and free refills. Captain D's gives 10% as does Fuddruckers. You do have to ask as it is not advertised as tall. Good Hunting!

In SD, KMart and Joann Fabric used to give senior discounts on a given day. I haven't been to either one of them for seveal years, because they are both so congested with merchandize that it is hard for me to get around in them and is actually annoying. I think Kohls gives a senior discount, at times. Anyway in their ads, it will say something to the effect that a special senior discount will be applied on a certain day.

The Pizza Hut in Palm Harbor FL., has a "30% off menu senior discount". You have to ask for it. I don't know if it's available at all Pizza Hut restaurants, but it's a large discount and worth asking for. Good on delivery orders too. McDonald's used to have a widely available "senior Coke" discount. Small Coke for about 30 cents and free refills I think. Haven't used it in a while and don't know if it's still around.

Many grocery stores have one day a week where they give senior discounts. I am 54 with very white hair and many of the cashiers at my local grocer assume I am a senior and give me the 10% discount without asking.

Do Best Buy stores give senior citizen discounts?

Call the different stores and ask if they provide this discount. From what I have heard the ones that do provide senior discounts don't have it every day of the week and some of them start at age 55, whereas others start at later ages. It doesn't hurt anything to call the stores and ask.

Here's a list of some senior discounts -

Age 50:

Join AARP (http://www.aarp.org) for thousands of discounts and special prices on everything from auto insurance and travel to home security systems and amusement park admission. Membership is $12.50 per year (which includes membership for you and your spouse or partner). Members also get access to sales. For example, through July 13, Crystal Cruises

is offering AARP members a $400 shipboard credit when they book a cruise.

Virgin Atlantic (http://www.virgin-atlantic.com) offers senior pricing 5% to 15% off all fares. You must book over the phone and request the discount.

Sign up for Dollar Rent A Car's (http://www.dollar.com) Silver Dollar Club, which offers 10% off regular rates.

Select Banana Republic (http://www.bananarepublic.com) stores provide discounts. The store in Denver's Cherry Creek Shopping Center, for example, offers a flat discount of 10%.

Age 55:

Discounts of 10% at select locations of:

Wendy's (http://www.wendys.com) Old-Fashioned Hamburgers,

Arby's (http://www.arbys.com),

TCBY (http://www.tcby.com),

Chili's (http://www.chilis.com) Grill & Bar

IHOP (http://www.ihop.com) Discounts of 10%.

Omni Hotels (http://www.omnihotels.com) offers discounted rates  about

10%  with its "Leisure 55" rate.

Age 60:

Discount of 10% at select locations of:

Burger King (http://www.bk.com) Restaurants

Join Rite Aid's (http://www.riteaid.com) Living More senior reward

program to save 10% off cash prescriptions and all Rite Aid-brand

products. Shop on Tuesdays, and you'll save 10% on most other items.

You can buy a senior movie ticket at AMC Theatres

(http://www.amctheatres.com). In New York City, that's $7 instead of

$10.75  a 35% discount.

At Regal Cinemas (http://www.regalcinemas.com), you can get a senior movie ticket. In Alexandria, Va., that's $7 & $0.50 less than the adult price for a matinee, and $3 less than the adult price for evening shows.

Hilton Hotels (http://www.hilton.com) offers a Senior HHonors program. In addition to regular reward program benefits (points accrued with each stay for free accommodations), Senior HHonors members specially priced room rates and dining discounts of 20% at hotel restaurants.

Alamo Rent A Car (http://www.alamo.com) offers special senior rates 5 to 10% off. You must book over the phone and request the discount.

Age 62:

Marriott (http://www.marriott.com) offers a 15% discount off the regular room rate.

Buy a Golden Age Passport from the National Park Service (http://www.nps.gov). For $10, this pass gets you lifetime admission into all national parks (plus any accompanying passengers). If your trip includes certain activities, say, camping, swimming or boating you'll also get 50% off those park service fees.

Amtrak (http://www.amtrak.com) offers a 15% discount off the adult fare price.

Greyhound (http://www.greyhound.com) Bus Line has a 5% discount off the adult fare price.

Age 65:

Continental (http://www.continental.com), Delta (http://www.delta.com) and SouthWest (http://www.southwest.com) all offer special senior fares; however, availability and pricing vary by flight. Southwest, for example, discounts fares by as much as 70%, capping prices at $129 for a one-way ticket.
