Don't leave money on the table! Many major brands offer great incentives for adults as young as 50.
Senior Citizen Discounts

You may be afraid to ask for a senior citizen discount or birthday freebies, especially if you're on the lower end of the age range. But once you see some of the deals that are available, you'll reconsider. Many major brands offer great incentives for adults as young as 50. To help you get started, we've researched some of the best senior discounts.

And if you enjoy this senior discount list, you might want to look into AARP membership, which offers even more deals for seniors, but at an annual cost. (You might also want to check out our guide to the best military discounts if you're a veteran or on active duty.)

Hello, these discounts are actually available without a printed coupon. You just need to visit the establishment and show them your ID. You should be able to receive the discount once they see that you qualify.
How come I can't print this senior citizens discount out for my use!

Thanks for the tip!
Weight Crafters CFS Fitness Camp runs a residential weight loss and fitness program for adults in Florida. Basically you spend one or more weeks on site getting in shape and eating right. They provide up to 10% off for seniors 60+ depending on AARP membership and other health factors.
IHOP doesn't offer a discount, they have a senior menu listed.
Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for all the posting. I never knew all these existed. But the Verizon one caught our attenion, and I just got off the phone, and they told me they no longer offer it all now for any price. So you might want to change it. I am going to call AARP and ask if they can renegotiate it with another company.
Thanks for the work.
This may be a regional restaurant chain, but I didn't see Culvers on the list for senior discounts. I am pretty sure they give discounts all of the time and better ones on Wednesdays.
Kohl's is 55, not 60
kjohnsonco, check out third party resellers like and Consumer Cellular. I've had a very good experience with the former.
Double Check the Verizon Wireless I have not been able to find a decent plan for my 82 yr old mother, when I looked at this I went to the website which states: "This plan is not available for new customers. If you're an existing customer with this plan you can continue your service with this plan. " Sadly the new price is $59.98.

@Strutter2112 Hi, good suggestion! We have that article here, but we can certainly update it again in the near future!
Could you do an article for veteran discounts?

I'm about to hit the big 5 0. I hadn't even considered that I would soon be eligible for a SENIOR DISCOUNT! I don't feel very senior.

I feel like I just died a little bit inside after reading this.... :(
Thank you. I had no idea of all these hidden savings.
Good work, Elizabeth!
Saving this! Thanks Liz!
