When you see a senior deal advertised, most of the time all you have to do is show a photo ID to prove your age. Sometimes you may need to take a couple minutes to fill out a free form for a store membership program. If you don’t see discounts offered, make sure to ask. A store may not have advertised the discount or they may just give you one simply for asking. Many chain stores have different discount offers or age requirements at each of their locations. Call ahead to check on specific store policies.
Search for Special Deals Online
Leave no stone unturned when it comes to saving money as a senior. There are a plethora of online deals and specials waiting for you, some of which may offer bigger savings than a senior discount. You may also be able to use special deals in addition to your senior discount.
Join AARP for Discounts
AARP (formerly known as formerly the American Association of Retired Persons) offers an inexpensive yearly membership for the 50-and-up group to save money on many different experiences. As a member, you’ll find discounts on travel, rental cars, retailers, food, groceries and drug stores, and more.
A good resource for finding senior discounts and saving money is the Senior List, which can be found here: www.theseniorlist.com/list-of-senior-discounts
