Now that you’re a senior, you might be surprised at what kind of discounts you can get. Here are four senior discounts worth checking out. I mainly discovered these discounts because I was looking up discounts my own parents could enjoy.
1. Movie theater tickets.
Now that you’ve hit the right age you can now see movies at a discount price! This is really great if you have young grandchildren because you can go see a movie with them and you both should be eligible for a discount. For an example of what the discount might be for seniors just take a look at the theater near me. Palladio 16 Cinemas offers movie tickets to seniors for just $7.00. This is a great price considering that the regular adult ticket matinee price is $7.50. This means that with your senior discount you’ll be able to get a movie ticket for less than matinee price, can’t beat that.
2. Clothing and housewares stores.
Many clothing and housewares stores will offer a senior discount on certain days. Some stores near me that I know that offer a senior discount include Ross and Goodwill. Discount days for seniors typically are a weekday and I usually see that the discount to be around 10% off your entire purchase. Most stores I see locally state that the discount is good for those 55 and over. It’s worth asking the stores you regularly shop at because discounts can really add up over time.
3. Admission tickets.
One of the great parts about being a senior is now you can save money visiting and seeing the things you enjoy. The local zoo here is very good for senior discounts. Various theme parks also offer senior discounts as well. This is a great opportunity for you to visit a place you haven’t before now that you can for less. Again, just like with the movie tickets, if you have young grandchildren this can make for an even cheaper outing with the combination of the senior and child discount.
Seniors not only get discounts but they also get their own food menu. This is great for a couple different reasons. First of all it saves you money but also let’s you get a portion of food that’s more suitable for you. Senior meals tend to be smaller which is great for those who do not eat as much. Denny’s is a popular restaurant that offers a senior menu. Besides a whole menu some places offer discounts on specific food items. Senior coffees are usually half the price at fast food restaurants than regular coffees but are still the same size. This means you’re still getting the same product just at a better price.
