5 Discounts for Older Adults You May Not Know About

One of the many perks of advancing in years is scoring great deals on all kinds of purchases and expenses. Here are five places you may not already know about where older adults can save big money:

1. Amazon Prime

Older adults who have valid EBT cards, or are on Medicaid, are eligible for Amazon Prime at just $5.99 a month. Compared to the $12.99 regular cost, that saves you more than half at just $84 annually.

2. Auto insurance

Many auto insurance providers reward years of safe driving with discounts for policyholders who are aged 55-plus. Be sure to shop around for the best deal or to ask your current provider if you qualify for a discount.

3. Dining out 

Dozens of national restaurant chains offer discounts, or even freebies, for older adults. Why pay full price when dining out (or ordering takeout, in the era of COVID) when you don’t have to?

Here are just a few chains that offer discounts:

  • Applebee’s: 15% off with Golden Apple Card (60-plus)
  • Arby’s: 10% off (55-plus)

5. Discounts at apparel stores

Whether you’re spending the afternoon at the mall or browsing the new season’s selections from the comfort of your couch, don’t forget the discount!

  • Banana Republic Discounts: 10% off (50-plus)
  • Bealls Outlet: 15% off on Mondays (50-plus)
