Age Pays: 120 Senior Discounts
InnerVisionPRO/istockphoto

Age of Rewards

Aging doesn't always have its perks, but this list of discounts might add some pizzazz to the fact of getting older and help cut costs for retirees, a definite boon during the current pandemic. Starting at age 50 (the minimum age for AARP membership), seniors can cash in on numerous deals just for being born on or before the date required for the bargain. Simply flash an ID to collect on most discounts, although some apply only to AARP members and some are offered only by select chain franchisees. These discounts might make retirement a little more fulfilling


Note: Be sure to call ahead to make sure the businesses are open, find out what rules they may have (such as mask requirements or limited hours), to check with each company regarding exclusions and additional requirements.
