The Best Senior Discounts In 2024

Being a senior comes with its own unique set of perks, and one of the best examples is senior discounts.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ve compiled the best discounts that you can take advantage of in 2024.


An Introduction To Senior Discount Programs

Senior discounts can make many of your purchases more affordable and help you save money you can use on other things.

Some stores may ask for proof of age, and others may require you to have an AARP membership to enjoy special deals. To qualify for AARP senior discounts and other exclusive perks, you’ll need to sign up for membership, which starts at $12 a year.

  • Some businesses offer discounts on specific days or during certain hours. You may consider planning your outings accordingly to make the most of these time-sensitive deals.
  • Keep an eye on sources like social media pages, promotional materials and dedicated senior discount websites.
  • Sometimes, senior discounts aren’t prominently displayed. Don’t be shy to ask if you may qualify for a deal.
  • If a business has a loyalty program specifically tailored for seniors, you can sign up to enjoy exclusive discounts and rewards.
