To find senior discounts, ask businesses because many of them provide senior discounts without advertising about the offers, search online by visiting websites such as SeniorDiscounts.com and Sciddy.com, and join membership organizations, such as AARP. Common discounts available for seniors include discounts for groceries, retail products, travel, car services and restaurants.
SeniorDiscounts.com features hundreds of thousands of discounts on a large selection of products and services, including medical services, pharmaceutical products, flights, car rentals and restaurants. Enter your ZIP code or city and state to find applicable discounts in your area, or choose a category from the drop-down list. The site also offers premium membership for a fee, allowing premium members to receive special discounts. Sciddy.com provides similar services, letting you search for free by ZIP code, city, state or category.
AARP is an organization that gives discounts to seniors through affiliate businesses. Membership requires an annual fee. Other similar organizations that provide senior discounts include the Seniors Coalition, the American Seniors Association, and the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.
When visiting local grocery stores, be sure to ask about senior discount programs as they usually feature varying discounts on different days. In terms of flights, Southwest Airlines offers excellent senior fares to customers who are at least 65 years old.
