Hip tips for saving BIG money with senior discounts:

  • Sign up for an AARP membership! As you’ll see throughout this list, an AARP membership is pretty much essential to unlocking senior savings and discounts that aren’t available to the general public. You can save big on travel (including airlines and hotels), dining at restaurants, and even on a night out to the movie theater. The savings opportunities are endless AND for a limited time, you can score a discount on an annual membership! 🙌🏼
  • Always ask before you make a purchase! Many businesses do not voluntarily offer discounts unless they are requested, and franchise establishments may have varying offers by location.

Before you make any purchases, check this list of senior discounts to help you save!

      AWESOME! Thanks for mentioning that helpful piece of information, JD827! Good to know! πŸ™Œβ€οΈ

  2. StephanieR

    We were recently visiting Bryce Canyon & Zion. Both are national parks. We were about to pay over $60 for admission when I asked the Ranger if we would qualify for the Senior rate. My husband had to give them proof of his age and we purchased his pass on the spot. Saved us tons of money. So, if you are 62 & over, invest a small amount of money now and it will pay itself off in 3-4 visits.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing how you were able to save at the national parks, StephanieR! So glad you were able to grab a discount there when asking! πŸ€—πŸ’ž

    • C

      Stephanie- to purchase (and use) any national park pass, you have to show ID. I got a pass before the shutdowns and each time I entered the park I had to show ID with the pass so the rangers could ensure it was my pass (which is why they ask for ID when you sign up- so they can get it right in paperwork) or

  3. Theresa

    Culver’s gives a senior discount if you ask. No memberships needed.

    • Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Theresa! Culver’s doesn’t officially have a dedicated senior discount policy. However, certain stores give 10% discounts on the total cost for customers aged 60 and over. Never hurts to ask.πŸ₯°

      You’re very welonlinee, Kirsten! Glad this list is helpful! πŸ₯°

  5. Renee

    Verizon has a 55 and over Senior Plan available as well, and when you onlinebine it with an automatic payment, you save even more. Also, even if you are not a Senior, be sure to check Verizon Up frequently for free tickets, early pre-sale tickets and other awesome prizes. Tickets vary for where you live. I won 2 tickets to the Broadway Musical Series “Pretty Woman”!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up, Renee! It looks like the current eligibility for the Verizon 55+ plan is for Florida residents. Hoping they might expand this offer nationwide soon! 🀞 SO awesome that you won Broadway tickets – I bet that was a super fun show to go see! ❀️
