Start Reaping the Rewards of Getting Older: Senior Discounts at age 55+
Oh no! I just turned 55, I’m now considered a “Senior” yikes! Being 55+ doesn’t have to be a bad thing, you just have to look at it the right way. Look at all the perks that come along with aging!
At age 55 you are an AARP member! YAY!!! Big discounts for you! Below is a list of places that offer discounts for those 55+ as well:
Corky’s Restaurant & Bakery
They sure want us to eat well! The list doesn’t include the places that accept AARP discounts!! WOW!!
At age 60, you reap the above plus so many more discounts:
Ben & Jerry’s
From 62+ you receive discounts just about everywhere you go! See, it’s all about how you look at it. You can choose to sulk about turning 55, or you can celebrate all the discounts you’ll receive.
There are many retail stores which offer discounts to those 55+ also. The great thing is that they are very close to the senior living communities in Port Orange. You have Beall’s, CVS, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Joann Fabric, Ross Dress for Less, Michael’s, the Tanger Outlets and Walgreens.
Some of them require you to sign up in order to get the discounts, but who cares as long as it saves you money, right?
Even though it hasn’t been such a good time for a cruise recently, remember almost all the cruise companies offer a 55+ or an AARP discount on cruise packages.
Please utilize your discount!
Remember when you’d travel and the only discount available was AAA?
Well, no more, it’s now AARP, yes that’s right, you can get discounts on hotels and rental cars with your AARP membership. But don’t forget to ask if they accept AARP! If they don’t know you are a member, they can’t give you a discount.
Internet and Cell Discounts
There are so many internet and cell phone companies out there for seniors now, so if you don’t need that iPhone anymore and want to save money check out some of the companies below.
AT&T, Consumer Cellular, Jitterbug, Verizon, and T Mobile.
Each company offers a plan specifically designed for the senior in mind with unlimited talk, text, and data if that’s what you need. Of course, you can just get your basic phone too, that’s what my mother has as she has a hard time seeing and working a smartphone.
Did you know you can get discounts on arts, parks (theme and state), movies, theaters, golf, and museums also? You just have to ask if they offer senior discounts, don’t be shy, you earned the right to these discounts,
If you want to go back to school and learn something new you can receive discounts on tuition too!
Some colleges and universities offer discounts for those over 55 years of age, once again, make sure you ask about the discount to receive it.
Seniors receive discounts on home security systems, printing and shipping from the UPS Store, medical alert systems, Norton LifeLock and antivirus, and so much more!
If you have access to a computer, just google senior discounts and you will be amazed at all the money you can be saving on things you use daily!
See, who said turning 55 was such a bad thing? I think it’s pretty great, just from the discounts we receive!
