My sister emailed me a list of places that offer discounts for seniors. The list is HUGE and I'm not sure if it's appropriate to post it here but there are many restaurants, retail stores, grocery, travel and activity/entertainment listings. "Senior" doesn't always mean age 65 since some are offering discounts for those over age 50.

Remember that some franchised stores have their own rules and may not participate even if they are mentioned on the list(s).

If you don't ask, you won't receive. In this tight economy, every penny counts and 10-20% can make a mighty difference for some.

I just started getting a 10% discount at my local diner and never asked for it. I must assume my gray hair had something to do with it.

Edit: I placed the entire list in the quick summary area below
Edit2: If you know of other retailers, etc offering senior discounts you can edit the list below.
Edit3: Since this list was emailed to me, I have no idea where it originated. If "bradsdeals" is the originator, as mentioned in the quick summary area then we thank you for your research.
Edit4: Free AARP Membership (reg $16/yr) with purchase of 3 Kellogg cereals. Promotion ends 9/30/11 or while supplies last. Google for details

Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice to men and women over 55 is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for you buck

why don't you zip it and post. A zip file won't be that large if it's text. I'd love to see the list

I think I'll post the entire list in the quick summary area. It's long but may be better than posting a zip file. By the way, I originally posted a link to another list but it was hosted by a another deal site and the mods wouldn't allow the link. You can google "senior discounts" and find quite a few resources.

can a young person to get AARP membership and get these discounts?

vickh said:   can a young person to get AARP membership and get these discounts?

"young" compared to what..under 60?, a 20 year old?, the Pyramids of Giza?

I like the way you roll.

vickh said:   can a young person to get AARP membership and get these discounts?

You cant join tell your 50.
If you tell them your real age like 48 AARP will not send you a card.
I have my AARP card right next to my AAA & NRA card in my wallet.....

I get a lot more junk mail fron AARP then NRA....

I'm sure there are many more that aren't on the list. If you ask everytime you spend money, you may be surprised at the results.

This list should be sticky'd!

Thanks OP

It's not all that great. And get off my damned lawn.

National Parks pass is free if your disabled at all,any age, Just tell them at the pay booth, and you will fill out a short form, and get a lifetime free pass card for zero cost. No proof of anything required. It allows your vehicle and everyone in it to enter any national park, monument, or lands.

Note: Burger King no longer discounts on the Value Menu. It's been about a year, and I miss it.....

Says Kmart is 20% for over 50

Is that oon everything? Sale prices also?

If so, I think that is huge

Free AARP Membership (reg $16/yr) with purchase of 3 Kellogg cereals. Google for details.

For those over 50

Bran flakes ?

I'm 60 and not once has Kroger's give me discount and I've ask and show them my AAARP card.

Carl's Jr has a senior discount of 10%. I use it all the time. You have to ask for it though.

Thanks, no social security increase, it is good to save when you can.

AARP is a con IMO, & I don't want to get political here... but research how they've thrown seniors under the bus in recent years. Be careful what you're supporting, or it might only cost you extra in the long run. I've worked with various non-profits and from personal experience, it can be nearly criminal how they look out for themselves and not the membership.

Green for the OP.

Any special discounts for people on Social Security Disability?

Don't Forget Senior Discount

right on i been thinking this for years now. lexcurat said:   AARP is a con IMO, & I don't want to get political here... but research how they've thrown seniors under the bus in recent years.

Thanks for this info- am a 30 yr old mom on disability and things like this can help tremendously... anyone know of any others like this?

Thanks OP!

Check carefully regarding discounts - for example, I believe Publix gives a 5% discount for over 55 in every state except Florida!

We went to Acadia National park recently and saw that too. The National parks also has a great deal for seniors (62+ yrs old). You can get lifetime pass for only $10.

Do they stack with coupons? We almost always use a coupon at restaurants, like last night $ off coupon. Wonder if they discount what the coupon doesn't cover.

I called my local Kmart who told me there is no senior discount. So I went online and went to Kmart's live chat customer service who took a long time but told me there is a 10% discount for those over 60 years of age.

A FW member PMed me and said his BigLots store does not offer a senior discount and he wants me to remove Big Lots from the list. I have not personally checked the credibility of the list and since it's in the Quick Summary area, it can be edited by any FW member.

Edit: I sent an email to Big Lots Corp and received a reply this morning. They don't offer a senior discount at the corp. level but some stores may offer senior discounts during certain times / days. They recommend calling ahead to see if your local store participates.

Kmart senior discount is optional and up to each regional manager to have his districts (and all stores in each district) participate in or not.

That's funny, because my wife and I use her mother's Kroger Plus card, and we both get the senior discount on Tuesdays. It get's automatically deducted when we check out. (That's a hint for all you cheap fatwalleters getting ready to fill out a kroger plus app!)

You CAN join up before the age of 50 IF your spouse is already a member or joins up & you join after him/her. I joined up after marrying my husband a few years ago & I was only 40.
