Discounts For U.S. Citizens Older Than 50 Years

You won’t find discounts for over 50s everywhere, but they do exist.

Some are only for 60 or 65 year old people. It’s best to ask directly in the store for which age group there are discounts. Some discounts require an AARP membership, which is very cheap. 

So it is important that you always carry an ID with you in case there is a discount and you have to identify yourself. 

Who gets how many discounts changes very quickly so it can happen that a discount on the list is already out of date. You can report this to us if you like. Thank you.

Many stores do not have a discount for people over 50 but if you find a cheaper price in another store, they will let you negotiate with them.

Sometimes it is also worth asking if the store does not want to introduce discounts for older people. In the long run it is a win win business.

Most young Americans who work in a store appreciate and respect the older people and sometimes you can get a free coffee or more.
