Few of us are eager to be senior citizens, but we’ll likely attain that status anyway. There’s a major upside to aging in America, though — senior discounts. Gobs of companies offer special deals just for those of a certain age — and the age varies, too, by the way. With some companies, you’ll only need to be 50 (or older), while others start offering their discounts at age 55, 60, or 65.
A little digging online will yield some great lists of discounts. Here is a long list of many compelling deals for seniors, along with, in many cases, how much you might save using it. Peruse the list and see how many of the senior discounts are of interest to you — perhaps with a paper and pad in hand. Tally up how much each might save you, based on your expected spending, and you may be surprised. Just a dozen annual savings of, say, $75 will total $900!
