Money Matters: 115 Senior Discounts to Save You Money
On this decade specific birthday, I figured today would be the perfect day to post a roundup list of senior citizen discounts! If you’ve reached the Golden Years, you’ve earned every single benefit that you are entitled to when it comes to saving money. Along with all the others listed below, I especially appreciate the Verizon senior discount and the Marriott senior discount.
If you’re part of the younger generation, you know someone over 50, right? Let them know that there are perks to getting older — senior citizen discounts!
Here’s the thing though: YOU must ASK for your discount to get it! Rarely do people ask if you qualify. For an easy way to save some of your hard earned cash, check out the following list of 115 money saving senior discounts.

Great post — a useful list. Wish I could take advantage of it myself, now that I’m an old fogey. Don’t get me wrong — I love living in Europe, but there are some things I do miss… 😉
Ha! I guess I can say I’m part of your old fogey club too. 🙂
