Several Great Senior Discounts You Should Use

A listing of available discounts for older peopleAlthough there are many down sides to getting older, it can have its perks too. Save even more money with these discounts for people over the age of 50. Remember to ask salespeople at local establishments as not all locations participate in these offers. It’s also a great way to find out about new discounts in your area.

Natural Recreation

The America the Beautiful lifetime pass allows senior citizens over the age 62 to spend $10 and receive a lifetime pass to national parks and federal recreation lands. If you like nature, this can save you hundreds of dollars. If receiving the pass by snail mail, a $10 shipping fee applies. You may also be able to get up to a fifty percent discount on park facilities such as hotels and pools. Many zoos offer a discount to seniors one day a week. What great ways to spend time in the great outdoors without breaking the bank!

Entertainment Discounts

If you are over 55, save up to 30 percent the next time you go to AMC Theaters. If you are over 65, you can save 35 percent at Carmic Theaters. Cinemark/Century Theaters have a discount of up to 35 percent. If the movie you want to see is not playing at one theater, you can catch it at another and still save money.

Look Good And Feel Better

Save $100 on your next membership at Bally Total Fitness if you are over 62. Local fitness centers have special programs for seniors so why not get that spa treatment, start that exercise routine, or take that yoga class? Greatclips will give you $3 off if you are over 65. For those who have not quite reached the 65 mark, Supercuts offers those over 60 $2 off, so why not go let the professionals take care of your hair and nail care needs.

Save Money on your Cell Phone 

For those over the age of 50, Jitterbug offers a $10 monthly plan. AT&T has a special senior nation 200 plan that includes 200 minutes for $29.99 a month for those who are 65 and over. Verizon nationwide offers a nearly identical option.  The phone is perfect for seniors in that it is very simple to use, has very large numbers, and won’t overwhelm the user with functions they do not need.

Travel Discounts

With all the hassle of airport security these days, many have returned to traveling across the nation via Amtrak trains. Amtrak can save you 15 percent if you are over 62. If you do choose to travil by plane, many airline companies like Alaska Airlines will give you 10 percent off if you are 65 or over. Enterprise Rent-A-Car gives a 5 percent discount to AARP members. It’s always a good idea to call and ask an agent about any senior deals or promotions before booking. Hilton Hotels give a 5 percent discount to AARP members as well. The Hampton Inn will give you 10 percent off if you book the room 72 hours in advance. Depending on location, you can save between 10 to 30 percent at the Holiday Inn. Ask around and you just never knkow where you might save a buck.
