Senior Discount Guide

If you are over the age of 50, you could be saving hundreds to thousands of dollars every year with senior discounts. Think of what you could do with all that cash: new adventures, relaxing holidays, remodeling projects at home, spoil some grandchildren, or pick up a new hobby. In this blog, we’ll be sharing our favorite senior discount finds along with two tips to help you save BIG!

TIP #1: Sign up for an AARP membership, belonging to this club is essential to unlocking senior savings. Annual memberships range from $12.60 to $16.00.

TIP #2: Ask before you buy! Many places do not offer discounts unless they are requested and franchise establishments may have varying participation in different locations.
