13 Great Senior Discounts

Prices Get Better With Age

Early-bird specials aren’t the only deals available to cost-conscious seniors. From hotel rooms to movie tickets to cellphone plans, these days there are plenty of fantastic discounts offered exclusively to older Americans – you just have to know where to find them. To uncover the best deals for seniors right now, we spoke to industry experts and did a bit of investigation. Read on for the details on 13 of our favorites. Of course, keep in mind that not all senior discounts are widely advertised. If you don’t see a retailer you like on our list, it never hurts to call and ask if there are any offers available for older folks, suggests couponing and savings expert Jon Lal, founder of BeFrugal.com. Another tip to keep in mind: If a business does offer a senior discount, make sure you meet the age requirements. “The definition of a ‘senior’ isn’t universal,” Lal says. “For some places it’s 55, some 60 and some 65, so always check at what age the discount applies.” Photo Credit: Chris Booth
