50+ Oklahoma senior discounts for savings at your favorite places
Aug 31, 2017
While not everything about getting older is rosy, there are some real benefits to hitting your senior years. One of them, is that a lot of things get a little cheaper. Many places offer discounts for boomers and seniors. And a lot of these discounts start when you turn 50!
Because of their extensive advertising and well-known name, most people are familiar with the discounts that come from being a member of AARP. But many other restaurants, retailers, and travel and entertainment companies offer discounts beyond those for AARP members.
While some senior discounts are available as soon as you turn 50, others may not kick in until you turn 55, 60, 62 or 65.
We're going to list some of the discounts we think you may be most likely to benefit from, but you can find complete lists and look more thoroughly for discounts at The Senior List, the Gift Card Granny blog, or at SeniorDiscounts.com where you can search for discounts by city and state.
You can always just search online for individual discounts, too. Go to Google, type in the business you're curious about, followed by “senior discount.”
One thing to note:
Some of the discounts listed are offered by franchise owners in local markets, so for some senior discounts may vary by location. Plus, this list changes constantly, so please always call your local store location to check on discounts before visiting.

We hope this will help you save some money around town or while traveling. There are many stores we didn't list, so check the links posted above if you want to search more completely.
Most importantly, always ASK if there is a senior discount when you shop. Many stores offer them, but they'll hardly ever offer it to you at checkout unless you ask. You might get a discount on unexpected things if you just ask!
Every dollar saved adds up, so why not take advantage of one of the benefits of reaching your senior years and save some money!
