Are You 50+? Get Discounts at These Places

senior discounts for fifty and up

If you’re over the age of 50, you may be surprised to learn that you can qualify for senior discounts at many businesses. While some retailers offer discounts to customers who are 60 or older, others extend their savings to those as young as 50.

Basically, you don’t have to be a senior to get the “senior” discount anymore, a lot of places are offering discounts for those as young as 50!

Which senior discount are you looking for?

Once you hit 50, the first thing you want to do is join AARP. As an AARP member, you’ll have access to a wide range of benefits and discounts, including:

  • AARP membership gives you access to exclusive member discounts on travel, entertainment, shopping, and more.
  • You’ll also enjoy free or discounted admission to many museums, parks, and other attractions.
  • Plus, as an AARP member, you can take advantage of special rates on rental cars, cruises, vacation packages, and more.

The biggest benefit is saving at your favorite restaurants. Save 10% off EVERY meal at Outback, Carrabba’s, Bubba Gump, Joe’s Crab Shack, Bonefish, and more!

Even if you don’t have an AARP membership, you can start getting discounts now, but the trick is you have to ASK for the discount.
