Hi everyone!

A few years ago a friend sent me a list of discounts for the 50+ and this year, I decided it was time for an update. I’ve heard several times that YOU must ASK for your discount when you go to many of these places – they won’t just offer it (not sure why!).  Also, I’ve received a number of emails saying that some places are telling folks that the listed discount is a local (or per store) discount – not offered nationally at all locations – so if you’re turned down that may be the case.

Please note – Although this list has been curated, companies are frequently updating their discounts. If you know of a useful discount that is not included on the list or find an outdated offering, please let me know!

This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family, too – so feel free to share!
