The Best Senior Citizen Discounts in Dining, Travel, and Retail

Updated on April 21, 2016

ToughNickel

And other items of interest to and for seniors.

 

What you will never see when walking into a store or restaurant, but the discounts are there...

Very few restaurants, stores, or other businesses have a sign like this; but if you ask, you may very well get the discount.

Welcome to this deals and discounts list and directory for seniors age 50, 55, 60, 65 and over. Usually no sort of membership nonsense is required. However, none of these national chains or other places are likely to have any prominent signs advertising any senior discounts or deals. The website of a national chain may not tell you what the policy is. You will have to ask.

The best way to obtain the discount is to just say, “Hi, I understand you have a senior discount?” Note the wording: a question, instead of a statement or demand. A question inflection is much more likely to elicit cooperation from the young person behind the counter.

A personal story: I walked into Taco Bell and asked what the deal-of-the-century was for this week. They said there was none.

I knew that; they grinned; I grinned. I ordered five 99-cent tacos. I informed them, "I'm a senior, so I'll take the usual 100% discount."

They said, "That would be nice...." More grinning; they were fine; I was fine; just having fun. I wandered out the door with my tacos. Yep, the discount was there. It wasn't 100%, but it was just what it was supposed to be.

 

Ten Percent Is Worth It

Many seniors may think a 10% discount is not worth the bother, but this is usually just a matter of perception. If instead of the deal being stated as a 10% discount, it had been stated as “Pay No Sales Tax for Life!”, everyone of all ages would be all over it. Yet the 10% discount would almost always be the better deal.

 

Know of a Senior Discount or Deal?

If you know of a senior deal or discount not listed here, we would like to know about it. Post it in the Comments Section below or drop us a note.

Also, of course, sales and marketing is a fluid force. Deals and discounts come and go. If you discover a senior discount listed here is no more, please let us know. The good news, what with the continuing population shift, is even more companies will probably initiate discounts for seniors.

 

Restaurants: Senior Dining Deals

 

Remember to Ask!

 

Applebee's gives a 15% discount to seniors age 60 and over who have the Applebee's Golden Apple Card.

Arby's gives 10% off for ages 55+.

Back Yard Burgers has a 10% senior discount for your order at participating locations, reasonably certain the age is 55 and over..

Burger King has a 10% discount for ages 60+, and additional discounts on coffee and soft drinks. (As of Oct. 2015, though, Burger King may be like Denny's, i.e., some stores give discounts and some don't. Thank you, Roger and D Brandt.)

Chili's is 10% off for ages 55+.

Denny's gives 10% off for age 55+. They will make it 20% off if you are an AARP member. As of 2014, each franchise owner was making his/her own decisions regarding this, so your results may vary.

Dunkin' Donuts does 10% off for ages 55+. Or a free donut (doughnut) when buying coffee.

IHOP is 10% off for ages 55+.

Jack in the Box has a 20% beverage discount for seniors age 55 and over. Though again, as of August 2013, the Jack-in-the-box discount may not be a sure thing.

KFC will give you a free small drink with a meal if you are 55+, although again, it’s reported some KFC's will and some won’t.

Long John Silver's has various discounts for 55+. Depends on location, so your results may vary.

McDonald's has discounts on coffee and soft drinks for the 55+ crowd.

Outback Steakhouse has a 15% senior discount, age demarcation unknown.

Roy Rogers Restaurants gives a 10% discount for seniors, age demarcation unknown.

Sonic gives a choice of free beverage or 10% off for folks 60 and older.

Subway is 10% off for ages 60+; though at least occasionally, a store owner will deny the discount, either because they are uninformed or because of individual franchise policy.

Taco Bell is 5% off plus free beverages for ages 65 and over.

Wendy's is 10% off for ages 55+, though at least one Wendy’s in Topeka, Kansas gave a free drink in place of the 10% discount. Not known if this is the new policy or a franchisee-specific incident. Thank you, Maggie.

 

Deals on Travel and Vacations

 

Alamo Car Rental has discounts and deals ranging up to 25% for AARP members.

Alaska Airlines was 10% off for ages 65+. It is now reported to be 50% off. Other fees, however, are unknown. Airlines like to wiggle out of things; call first to ask about the discount and fees before making plans or booking.

American Airlines has discounts and deals for seniors 62 and up. Various discounts can reach up to 50% for non-peak periods (Tuesdays through Thursdays). Other fees, however, are unknown. Airlines like to wiggle out of things; call before booking.

Amtrak has a 15% discount for seniors. But they have a whole bunch of restrictions to go along with it.

The Avis car rental company has discounts and deals ranging up to 25% for AARP members.

Best Western motels have a 10% discount for seniors age 55 and over.

Comfort Inn motels have discounts ranging from 20% to 30% off for seniors age 60 and over.

Southwest Airlines is reported to have various discounts for ages 65 and up. But the usual warnings apply: call first, find out about other fees, etc.

 

Retail Discounts and Deals

 

Actually, some of these senior discounts could add up to serious dollars...

 

Glasses

A side note about glasses. Glasses are expensive and serious business. When selecting a store, it wouldn't hurt to do a "StoreNameHere review scam" search to see what complaints there are about them. And it could be unwise to have the exam done at one place and the glasses made at another; if there is a problem, each will point to the other as being the cause.

LensCrafters is reported to have a 30% discount for AARP members. Frankly, I'd find out the prices for everything first before mentioning the discount. Then spring the AARP card on them before taking the exam and see what happens. It wouldn't hurt to check frames and lenses prices at Walmart and Sears first for comparison.

I had an unprofessional experience at Pearle Vision a couple decades ago; I was verbally assaulted the second I walked in the door. I immediately realized the franchisee or store manager was extremely defensive about something. I cleared out after about 30 seconds and never did find out what his problem was (in retrospect, maybe it was because they had the highest prices in town, not sure).

 

Clothes

Goodwill gives 10% off one day a week (your day may vary). A 2015 report states for at least one store the age is 55 and the day is Wednesday.

Kohl's does 15% off on Wednesdays for folks 60 and over. [Updated July 15, 2015. Thank you, CarissaM.]

Ross Dress For Less, also known as Ross Stores, has an Every Tuesday Club for customers age 55 and older. Just sign up at the customer service desk to receive a discount card. Folks with the discount card receive a 10% discount for in-person purchases made on Tuesdays.

The Salvation Army thrift stores give up to 50% off for folks 55 and over.

 

Groceries

Grocery stores Albertsons and Kroger do 10% off, but you will have to work for it. If the first employee you ask doesn't know the answer, ask the store manager as to days and dates, and whether the discount applies at 55, 60, etc.

Grocery Outlet (western states plus Pennsylvania) gives a 10% discount to people 55+ on Tuesdays or Thursday mornings, at at least some stores.

 

Hair

Great Clips has $3 off for haircuts. Ages 60 and up.

Super Cuts has $2 off for haircuts. Ages 60 and over.

 

Pharmacies

CVS doesn't have any senior discounts per se. But you do want to get their Extracare Card. And do give them your email address; they will rain all sorts of worthwhile discounts on you. It used to be if you ran the card through the red machine at the front of the store, a great deal would show up now and again; but I haven't seen any such for a long time now.

Costco pharmacies are exempt from store membership requirements in most states.

Rite-Aid has 10% off on Tuesdays. And there is 10% off on prescriptions. Age demarcation unknown.

Walgreens generally charges the highest prices in town for everything, especially in the pharmacy department.

Walmart pharmacies are always worth checking out.

 

Exercise

Bally Total Fitness has a $100-off membership discount for age 62 and over. Personally, I'd rather go jogging; it's free. Or join the activities programs if you happen to live in a mobile home park or other senior citizens' community.

 

Phones

If you don't happen to know what Lifeline is, you definitely want to check that out no matter who your phone company is. If you qualify, you will save between $200 to $300 a year on your phone bill. You qualify based on income, not age.

AT&T has a $19.99/month cell phone plan for seniors ages 65+, currently called the Special Senior Nation 200 Plan.

Jitterbug has a $10-a-month cell phone plan for users 50+.

Verizon Wireless has a $30/month plan for seniors ages 65 and over. However, if you have a Lifeline landline, and want to use it to get on the Internet, it could be well worth your while to drop by the Verizon website and see what DSL deals they are offering; no age restrictions, and DSL is plenty good enough for most situations, including streaming videos.

 

Movies

AMC Theaters gives up to 30% off for ages 60+. AMC specifically says, "If you're at least 60 years old, you've probably seen a lot of great movies in your lifetime. And if you haven't, get started now with discounted tickets on Senior Day." I underlined that phrase because it makes me wonder if they show only old movies on that day. [Updated July 2014. Thank you, Jen.]

Regal Cinemas offers a 30% discount for seniors ages 60 and over. Not available for all performances.

 

Miscellaneous Retail

Big Lots does not do senior discounts at this time. Confirmed by three independent sources. [Updated July 15, 2015. Thank you Alice Ann, JMorgan, and kmobrien!]

Kmart used to give 40% off on Wednesdays for folks 50 and over, but as of 2015 this discount is no more.
