Senior Citizen Discounts List

another view of the garden folly/greenhouse

The list of senior discounts came to a north Alabama site I read, sent to a member via Florida. You might want to check these before you arrive, expecting a discount. Notice there are varying ages to qualify as a senior. Who makes up this arbitrary line in the sand? For me, right now it does not matter. It appears I am well-qualified, age-wise, for everything on here.

Big Lots 30% Why did I not know this. I buy little there, but this is worth looking into. A 10% discount at Rite Aid would bring me in faster. Belk's? Since when?  I am learning places to ask about the discount.

Your turn
Do you have any places to add, local or national? If it is local, include the location. If you find any discrepancies, let me know that, if you will. Can you confirm any of these? Do you go to any of these places?



  1. Most of our 'seniors' discounts start at 60. And I am not there quite yet.
    However, my sister-in-law asks every time she purchases something - and says she is successful more often than not. Generally ten percent, sometimes 5. It certainly doesn't hurt to ask.

    1. EC,
      "Senior" started at 55 until I was there, then it went to 60 and at the movies it moved to 65. Now, there is only a senior discount if kids are out of school during day or evening. That's no fun!

      I ask lots of places. At Arby's you have to buy a full meal, not just a sandwich or $ menu item. No, it does not hurt to ask at all! Thanks for the reminder.

    2. My local Good Will has 25% off on "senior Wednesday" . Over 55 I think. When I turned 55 senior discounts all got moved to 60! Thought I was the only one who noticed that.

    3. Rat,
      Yes, I noticed. I think I am fully "senior" now. Surely, they won't push it to 70. I am going to look for GW when I am in other towns.

      I get really rude people who insist I am not old enough. It ought to be flattering, but they embarrass me with their disrespect.

  2. I told Joe I was going to print this out, but I'll either forget, or if I do print it out, I'll lose the damn thing.

    1. lj,
      That is when you print multiple copies. Ask me how I know.

  3. Great list...but since I'm only, ah, twenty guess I'm not qualified. BTW, I've linked you on my blogroll. Thought I had you listed. Sorry for the oversight.

    1. Oh Stephen,
      Some day you, too, will be able to qualify for wonderful discounts. By the way, I have seen your picture and you are certainly a mature looking twenty. lol. Oh, okay. Wonderful. See you later.

  4. Having the age for discounts shift around is a particularly sensitive subject to me.. I am in that group who will not be eligible for full social security until 66!

    I knew about a couple of the discounts on your list but I so rarely go to any of those places that I had no idea about the majority of them. I think I will print a copy of your excellent list to tuck into my glove box.

    If I remember right our neighborhood theater (Edwards chain) gives seniors a free popcorn on Tuesdays.

  5. Janet,
    I rarely go to any of these places, either. If I do, I sure want to make absolutely sure I get the discount if there is one. Do, having this in my car would be helpful.

    I know exbf and I were going to one of my secret shopper jobs and were going to be gone around lunch time. I gave him all the ads and had him read and pick out and read to me what we both would like. Then, when we got to the town, we saw one burger place that had two cheeseburgers for $3.33. I had carried soft drinks from home in a lunch bag with ice pack. Eating cheaply is the goal always. However, we rarely eat out at all. I like discounts and coupons, always. Now, I can carry a list of discounts, too.

    Free popcorn is a good deal. Thanks.
