10 Places Seniors Should Be Getting Discounts

October 12th, 2019

Aging comes with some pretty great perks. Retirement is an obvious one. You can also look forward to snagging amazing discounts when you go shopping, to the movies, or out to eat. Here are ten places where you should always ask for discounts!

Movie Theaters

Lower-priced movie tickets for seniors are an extremely popular discount. Most theaters, whether they’re a chain or a locally-owned business, offer this discount.

Grocery Stores

Plan your weekly shopping around when you can get the best grocery store discounts!


Check with your local gym to see if they offer discounted rates to members. Additionally, many seniors get Silver Sneakers through their Medicare plans. This grants you access to thousands of gyms nationwide, so check to see if you’re eligible.

Utility Companies

Did you know that some utility companies offer discounted rates to seniors? Contact your municipal government or utility providers to find out if this benefit is available in your area.

Colleges and Universities

Some programs offer classes to seniors at a steep discount, or even for free! Check with your local university to find out what their policy is for senior students.

National Parks

If you enjoy both traveling and the great outdoors, you’ll love the discount you can get on National Park admission. Seniors can purchase an annual or lifetime park “passport” that grants you access to parks and public land across the nation.

Retail Stores

Popular retailers like Kohl’s and Ross offer senior discounts once a week. While these two are well-known discounts, you should ask at other retail stores, too. Some may offer discounts in certain locations, while others simply don’t advertise their discounts.

Auto Maintenance or Repair Shops

Midas and Jiffy Lube, two national auto repair chains, offer senior discounts that vary by location. Plus, you can always ask your local repair shop if they too offer a discount!


Never pay full price to travel again! Seniors can get discounts on cruises, airfare, bus, rental car, and even train expenses

Hair Salons

Some national chains offer senior discounts. Though this discount isn’t exclusive to seniors, you can also save by booking an appointment at a cosmetology school.
