Savings for Seniors
Many senior citizens are retired and have fixed incomes, which makes it harder to make ends meet each month. Luckily, seniors become eligible for discounts practically everywhere when they reach a certain age. We’ve put together a comprehensive list of the available senior discounts but you should definitely ask about senior discounts whenever you go shopping, dine out or go out on the town. You will be pleasantly surprised with all the discounts that aren’t advertised!
AARP stands for American Association of Retired Persons, but you don’t have to be retired to get a membership. Anyone 50 years old or older can obtain a membership for only $16.00 per year. Your partner/ spouse will also get a free membership. Other membership options include three years for $43.00 or five years for $63.00. If you plan on being a member for several years, you’ll save the most with the five-year option.
AARP benefits include:
- Countless senior discounts (detailed below) including daily deals and local offers.
- Subscription to the award-winning AARP magazine, featuring articles on health, finance and entertainment for 50+ folks.
- 2GB of free online photo and video storage.
- Access to valuable information about financial planning, consumer protection, insurance and more.
