Retail stores are constantly looking for ways to attract and keep customers. One way they do this is by offering discounts, many of which are targeted at seniors.
The best deals that senior citizens can find while shopping are in the form of discounts on retail items from popular brands like Nike, Apple, Amazon, Home Depot, and more.
Many of these retailers offer special discounts that apply exclusively to people aged 50 to 65 years old and up.
With these amazing savings opportunities always available, it’s a wonder why anyone would ever leave home without their ID!
What are the Eligibility Requirements for a Senior Discount at Retail Shops?
Senior discounts are generally open to those aged 50 and up, though some stores may have a different threshold.
Certain retailers have discounts that kick it for customers ages 60, 62, 65, or older.
Some retailers also require proof of age (often it can be as simple as an ID card).
Other retailers may also require that you be an AARP member to qualify.
Additionally, some retailers only offer these discounts on certain days of the week. Be sure to check our list of deals below or contact the business for the full details.
Why do some stores only offer senior citizen discounts on Tuesdays?
Some stores offer discounts on Tuesdays because they are a slow day for business.
While other businesses may have more customers every day of the week, offering a discount allows them to get rid of excess inventory at lower prices and attract shoppers who might not otherwise come in.
It is also common practice for retailers to run specials or promotions around certain holidays or at different times of the year.
How Much Can you Expect to Save with a Senior Discount at your Favorite Stores?
Some stores offer discounts up to 20% and some even more.
The typically savings range from about 10-15%.
You can find a list of the top senior discount retailers below with links to their website, eligibility requirements, and types of offers available.
