Senior Discounts

Restaurant Deals + Discounts

At what age are you officially a “senior”? I recently had a heated discussion with a friend of mine who says you aren’t a senior until you’re 65. Now in her mid-fifties, she was offended that she could be called a “senior.” I hated to break the news to her.

So, when are you considered a senior? It depends.

The first time AARP The Magazine arrived at our house, announcing we had reached the half-century mark, I winced. But AARP membership does have its bright side. Discounts for restaurants, retail shops, concerts and other entertainment offered through AARP can really soften the blow.

Aside from AARP deals, many restaurants offer free drinks and discounts if you’re 50 or older. So do some grocery stores, department stores and even cruise lines. It’s a big discount world out there – if you ask and know where to look.

We’ve researched some of the top restaurant discounts. You can get a full list with more details at the Senior List.

Keep in mind that each restaurant location has to participate in the brand’s discount program. Some are franchise-owned and have the right to opt out of the corporate program, so it’s best to ask your server before placing your order. For restaurants offering discounts through AARP membership, you usually have to show your AARP card.
