    cant find any cell discounts? takes me back to main page> useless.

  2. Karen says:

    Who authorized the Chick-fil-A discount? I was told that each store decides for themselves on the discounts and promotions offered. Please clarify this for me. Our local CFA is unaware of this offer. Thanks

    • Caitlin at Brad's Deals says:

      Karen, as stated in our blog post, some stores and restaurants have regional discounts. Therefore, we always advise our readers to check with the sales person or waiter if that store or restaurant provides a discount, and what that discount might be. Hope this helps :)

  3. Jill says:

    Wish I knew it about the senior discounts of stores…Thanks

  4. Cory says:

    What’s with Publix grocery store giving seniors a nice discount EXCEPT in Florida…shame on Publix!!!!

    • Carm says:

      I agree with you shame on Publix. Seniors living in Florida also need a brake. Hope someone that works for Publixs reads this and shares our concerns with management.

      • Robert says:

        I wonder when did Publix change their policy? Here in Atlanta, it used to be age 55 to get the 5% discount on Wednesday. I wonder when that changed or did it?

  5. Kurt says:

    There was no senior discount at CiCi’s. Maybe it is only at certain locations.

    • Hey Kurt, we are sorry to hear that you couldn’t score this discount. A lot of these senior discounts vary by region. We sugguest that our readers always ask a salesperson or waiter if that store or restaurant has a senior discount that they can offer. Hope this info helps! :)

  6. P Brown says:

    There is on;y a 10% AARP discount showing, no 20 to 30 % offat
    Comfort Suites and Innss

  7. michael reinert says:

    so far all of the stores and rest. have told us that they have no senior discounts. is this because we live in denver.

    • Caitlin at Brad's Deals says:

      Michael, that’s very interesting. I doubt that it has to do with where you live, but it might have to do with what stores and restaurants you are trying. Which stores and restaurants have said that they do not provide senior discounts? Would love your feedback! :)

  8. Cheri says:

    Where did you see that Jitterbug was only $10/month for seniors? I currently have it now and to my knowledge, my $14.99/month plan is the lowest rate they offer. Please let me know, as I would like to get a lower monthly rate if they do offer it! Thanks in advance.

  9. Sharon says:

    The Chattanooga TN food lion store does not offer the senior discount. When I contacted corporate they stated that the offer is only in certain locations in Georgia. I did request that they offer it in Chattanooga but not sure if that will happen. Just FYI

  10. Ron Keeney says:

    You might add that many fast food places such as Burger King, McDonald’s,Jack in box, and others, offer a “Senior soda”, a small soda for a quarter or so, not shown on their menu. Not all locations participate, however.

    • Ron, thanks for your feedback! That will make a great addition to our Senior Discount blog! We will make sure to add this piece of info for the rest of our readers to take advantage of. If you have any more tips, please don’t be a stranger :)

  11. efc says:

    My Golden Apple Cared from Applebee’s is 10%. The manager said if it is advertised as 15% somewhere else, let me know and they will honor it. Do you have a site where the 15% is shown? Thanks you,

  12. Steph D. says:

    This new site offers great discounts:


    They have cool videos that feature celebs too.

  13. Keith K says:

    I checked with Albertsons home office – there’s no such Senior discount. I don’t know where the writer got his information, but according to the readers’ comments – and my research – a lot of it is no good.

    • Caitlin at Brad's Deals says:

      Keith, I am sorry to hear that your Albertson’s did not provide you a discount. As stated in this blog post, many senior discount do *vary by region*, therefore, not all stores will give you a discount. As the writer of this post, I made sure to include all stores that could potentially provide seniors with a discount, so that those who live in certain regions could enjoy saving their money! I hope this info helps. And don’t forget: always ask a waiter or salesperson if there is a senior discount you can use!

  14. Big Ron says:

    How about Veterans discount 10% at Home Depot (you must show your veterans card.

  15. jbbrla says:

    Just went to Subway in Baton Rouge and asked for the 10% seniors (60+) discount. The manager looked at me like I was crazy and said there is no 10% seniors discount. I looked on the Subway web site but could not find anything. Can you help?????

  16. Jon Fillmore says:

    insurancemichigan.com has great senior discounts on insurance for folks located in Michigan. Range is from 10% (50-54) to 34% (65+).

  17. JR says:

    Just found out that New Jersey Transit gives a 50% discount to seniors 62+.

  18. Roger Vesely says:


    Regarding discounts with cell phone companies for employees of major companies – How about retirees? I retired from one of the employers on your list. Any discount for me?


  19. RH says:

    The list under grocery shows:

    Fry’s Supermarket: free Fry’s VIP Club Membership & 10% off every Monday (55+)

    This is incorrect. 10% off is offered only on the 1st Wednesday of the month.

  20. Hank says:

    I love deals!

  21. Jim6555 says:

    I noticed the comment above about a 50% discount on New Jersey Transit. It has been my experience that almost all transit agencies and commuter railroads in major cities have discounts for seniors or the disabled. The size of the discount is usually about 50%. Also, the type of ID needed varies. For example, in Los Angeles, anyone who has a drivers license or state ID card showing that they are 62+ or has a medicare card is eligible to buy a senior ticket at a transit station vending machine or pay a reduced fare on a bus. In Boston, the requirements are much more stringent and require a special MBTA ID card. Check the website of the agency that you will be using to find out the rules.

  22. Mike says:

    Food Lion – Berryville, VA – Checked today. No discount offered.
    The associate I spoke with will relay to store manager my suggestion that they do so. I told them that I will check back in one week and see if they had any decision to do so and would re-publish information accordingly. You might want to contact them directly at 540-955-3351.

  23. char says:

    What about discounts for the disabled. Any good deals for us?

  24. Frances says:

    Hi do these discounts apply to Europe as well? I live in Spain, and I usually find that after having chosen what I wanted filled out all the necessary requirements I find at the
    very end it says ‘NOT EUROPE’. Even although I have gone and looked at the shipping first and it says that they do. Could you please let me know?

  29. Wanda says:

    I called and Jitterbug does NOT do the $10/ month phone service as is advertised here. The cheapest they do of anything is $14.99/month and with other taxes and fees it is almost $20. a month. Most of their customers are seniors so they would never honor it.

  30. Keith says:

    Our Chili’s in Shreveport, LA has no such discount.

  31. Linda says:

    Food Lion in Dover, De. also doesn’t give a senior discount. Manager said they never did.

  32. gosh knows we need the extra help!

  33. Terry says:

    Tried to print out senior citizen list, but could only print the blue highlighted entries. Used “pdf printable version” and several other methods, but never was able to print the entire list. Please tell me how to print the entire list!

  34. Dave says:

    Given how many people are posting that the claimed
    discounts do NOT exist–and add free DD coffee and the big discounts for relative young seniors at Banana Republic, AMC theaters, Regal theaters, and KMart to the NOT TRUE list–I question whether the explanation is truly “these are regional”, rather than “we did not check these and many of them do not exist.”

  35. Sergio says:

    What about Home Depot….?

  36. Sue says:

    Visited Food Lion in Arcadia, NC today, they DO NOT honor 6% Senior discounts! Never heard of it they said.

  37. Bonda Garrison says:

    Bealls offers Senior Days EVERY Tuesday now – 15% off if you are over 50.

  38. Gail says:

    FYI-in Charlotte, NC Harris Teeter gives a senior citizen discount on Thursday, also BiLo offers a senior citizen’s discount on Wednesday

  39. AL Bremner says:

    Hey Dunkin Doughnuts does not give a free cup of coffee for people +55 . They have no posted policy!
    Please Investigate

  40. strategy10 says:

    Many Regal and AMC Cinemas in Atlanta and surrounding areas don’t honor the AARP or other senior discounts

  41. Jane Smith says:

    I have found that quite a few of the “Thrift (generic) Stores around the Irving, TX area offer a huge saving on various colored tags each Monday, which is their “off” day for sales.
    The color of the tag changes weekly so you have to ask which color. One store offers any clothing item for $.59 if the tag color is the appropriate one.

    When I visited my neighborhood Dunkin’ Donuts today, I was told that their senior discount had been discontinued.

  44. Diana Mendoza says:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    As a Senior I am sure you realise out incomes are very limited. Your Senior Discount list is loaded with foods that Seniors should not be eatting. When I was working I shopped with you alot, but I developed cancer and I had to retire so my imcomne is limed. I fell in love with the Land;s End Tote for my grandduaghter, but it was still too much,for me. I coulod sew is for much cheaper. I have seen so many things recenly, but you have raised your priced. So I will stick to Woot and 1 sale a Daly and sites that ate within my limitrd Budget. I will miss you, You were always so gracious. Thank you.

  45. Wow! Thanks for this awesome list. Makes me feel glad I’m a senior. I knew there were some good discount benefits AARP membership gets me, but your list is much more extensive. I get a $2.00 discount at Supercuts. I hope you will update your list once a year or so.

  46. Marjorie says:

    I owned a Jitterbug phone for two years before I found out about the 10% discount for 55+. I called about it and asked why I wasn’t informed of this when I first signed on with them and the gal sputtered and stuttered…didn’t know what to use as an excuse. I get the discount now and it’s a nice little savings. I’m glad to have this list because for the most part, if you don’t ask, they don’t tell! I guess the only thing to do is to ask discounts everywhere you go. Now I’ll be calling AT&T about a discount! Thanks bradsdeals.com!!!

    P.S. I live in Florida. Shame on you too, Publix!

    These need to be updated. In Arizona, as of March 2012 Denny’s only gives you $1 off of coffee. Taco Bell now only gives seniors 10% off, no free beverage.
