Hidden Discounts for Seniors Starting at Just 50

Here are a lot of discounts that senior citizens can start to receive, whether it’s a discount for a movie ticket or a percentage off of your meal at particular restaurants. This is really where age pays. Here are some unique senior discounts that you may not have thought of before, and some of these discounts even start at age 50 instead of the traditional 55 or even 60 and up.

Amtrak tickets. Tickets go for 15% less off the lowest fare to travelers who are at least 62 years of age or over.

Department stores. Places like Banana Republic, Belk, Dress Barn, Goodwill, and Kohl’s all offer discounts for folks 60 or 62 and over starting at 10% off.

Restaurants and fast food options. These include places like Wendy’s, Rainforest Café, Outback Steakhouse, McCormick and Schmicks, IHOP, Dunkin’ Donuts, Denny’s, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and the Bonefish Grill. Ages vary from 55 to 62 and over with discount starting at 10% or more.

There are lots of travel options including tickets, airlines and hotels. Just a few of these include:

  • Best Western
  • Budget car rentals
  • Choice hotels
  • Grand Canyon Railway and hotel
  • Greyhound bus
  • Howard Johnson
  • Hilton
  • Hyatt
  • La Quinta inns and suites
  • Marriott hotels
  • Motel 6

Other places that offer a discount to seniors are Verizon Wireless, which has a 65 Plus program offering discounts on wireless plans. The Royal Caribbean Cruise lines offer travelers 55+ certain discounts all over the place.  Rite Aid members receive a 20% discount on non-prescription items on the first Wednesday of the month. Regal Theaters offer discounts and Pearle Vision and Lenscrafters has quite a few discounts for AARP members. Michaels Art Supply offers people 55 and over a 10% price reduction every day.
