More Tips

Senior discounts are one of the perks of aging! 🥳

Birthday pancakes with #55 candlesSave hundreds annually with senior discounts when you’re over the age of 50! In fact, we’ve got 40+ restaurants, retail shops, grocery stores, movie theaters, and other places offering senior discounts that make growing older better pretty terrific! 😊

*Note that these offers and discounts may vary by location and may require an AARP membership (see below). It’s always a great idea to call ahead and ask about a senior discount – wherever you’re going!

Hip tips for saving money with senior discounts:

  • Sign up for an AARP membership! This membership is essential to unlocking senior savings and discounts that aren’t available to the general public.
  • Always ask before you make a purchase! Many businesses do not voluntarily offer discounts unless they are requested, and franchise establishments may have varying offers by location.

    Thanks for the list; I will be hitting the big six-oh in a little over a year! Also, Publix offers a 5% discount on Wednesday’s for folks 60+. My DH is over 60, so I send him shopping most of the time. πŸ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Woohoo! You’re so welcome, Tracey! Thanks for sharing with us and Happy upcoming 60th to you! πŸŽ‚β€οΈ

    • Renee

      Publix does not offer the discount to Seniors in Florida.

    The Goodwill stores in Baton Rouge used to be only one Wednesday per month, then it went to every day, but they reduced it to every Wednesday a few years ago.

    The Wendy’s in Baton Rouge that my mom goes to the most offers a free drink, not just discounted.

    A Taco Bell in a small town in Missouri offers a 10% discount.

    With Marriott, not all room types are eligible. It is usually only the basic king and 2 double/queen rooms. Occasionally I have seen the next level or two up, but I have never seen a suite available at the senior rate. The room types above the basic rooms are typically still available at the standard rate.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you so much for taking the time to share those details, Sara! πŸ€—πŸ’—

  3. Lisa

    Many animal shelters and rescues offer a discounted adoption fee for seniors. Some places have a “seniors for seniors” program that promotes the adoption of older animals, and others, like where I volunteer, have a general 25% discount on fees for any adopter over 55%.

    • Lisa

      Whoops, meant to say “any adopter over age 55.”

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful tip, Lisa! ❀️ Good to know!

  4. Renee

    Ross stores offer a 10% discount, even on sales items, to those 55 and over every Tuesday. When it’s no tax days, it makes the savings even sweeter!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know, Renee! πŸ™ŒπŸ’ž

    Amazon Prime is only $6.99 for Seniors

    Oh my gosh! I’m 51, I can’t believe that I will get all these discounts in 4 years. I don’t feel like a senior 😩

  9. Olgraygirl

    Thanks for this post–I am always learning of more and more senior discounts and Just FYI-alot of these and other discounts are available with AAA membership, if you don’t want to support AARP’s political agenda.

  10. Teresa

    People age 55+ get a 10% discount with My Plumber in my area. You could ask your plumber or electrician or HVAC service person if they give senior discounts.
