Are you over 50 and looking for dining discounts?
We found some Senior discounts just for you.
Here are a few restaurants that offer regular discounts for people age 50 and over, or by showing your AARP card.
The secret to finding more senior discounts at places is to ask for it.
Many discount offers aren’t always obvious or advertised. Some restaurants will offer your age off, as opposed to a fixed percentage off your bill.
Here’s a trick that can save a bunch
If there is a senior citizen in your party, it might be a good idea to ask them to order for your entire table and check out with one bill. It may be a loophole in the discount rules, but plenty of restaurants and businesses will tend to honor it and not question it too much.
Get creative when planning a night out with a group.
If you invite someone over age 55 to come along and be the designated bill payer, your entire party might be able to benefit from a nice discount.

Remember, you must ask for a senior discount!
Certain bars, restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses, or even ice cream shops might not always advertise any senior special deals.
Discounts and proof of age might vary by restaurant or location, and may often change their terms, so be sure to verify what they offer before you order.
Also, most restaurants will not allow you to use any other coupon or advertised discount combined with your senior discount, but you can ask.
You never know how generous a restaurant might be with their elderly patrons. You should first compare the senior discount with any other advertised offers, to see which promotion will provide a better deal and save you the most money.

Annually, National Senior Citizens Day is celebrated on August 21st.
This is when we honor our wise elders and give them a day to celebrate their ripe age.
The #NationalSeniorCitizensDay started back in 1988 when then President Ronald Reagan, proclaimed the official day of recognition and designated it as an annual holiday. The special day serves as a reminder to all of us that we should honor and show appreciation to our seniors who always make such a huge and positive impact on our society.
We love our elders, so let’s give them an opportunity to save more of that money they worked so hard for all their lives.
Here’s another idea to consider.
If your’re a grandparent and you plan on eating out with any grandchildren, why not check our our KIDS EAT FREE list before you go.
With a little planning, you could find a restaurant that offers both senior discounts and a Kids Eat Free deal then you can take advantage of a both discounts. Remember to always ask for any restrictions and see what deals will save you the most money when you dine out.
