Whether you’re shopping for clothes, home essentials, crafting supplies or eyeglasses, you may be able to save at the register with a senior citizen’s discount.
In this article, you’ll find a list of retail stores that offer regular discounts to seniors. I followed up with each store to verify the details of the discounts, but you’ll still want to check with your nearest location for any possible exclusions.
This article was updated in October 2023 and I review it every eight months. Detailed notes on all updates can be found here.
Stores That Offer Senior Discounts
Several retail stores offer special discounts to senior shoppers on certain days of the month or week.
Many of the discounts listed below are available every Monday or Tuesday, though many of these chains offer them only during the first week of each month. Some stores, including UPS and LensCrafters, offer discounts and services to seniors and/or AARP members every day.
Many local stores and businesses also provide senior discounts and additional savings, so always ask. At stores like Lowe’s, Ace Hardware and Home Depot, you may be eligible for veterans discounts. Note that some of these discounts are available only in-store, and others are also available online. Please call your local location to confirm that discounts are available.

More Ways To Save
In addition to in-store senior discounts, be sure to check for sales, promo codes and coupons online. You may also be able to get a better deal by waiting for a holiday sale.
Before you make your final purchase, take the time to check and see if you can save even more by shopping somewhere else. Check out our guide on how to use Google Shopping as an easy online price comparison tool.
Consider waiting to make your purchase until the product you want is likely to be on sale. For example, Amazon will offer discounts during Prime Day in July. School supplies and technology will be on sale in August and September.
For regular purchases throughout the year, your senior discount alone can help you save big over time!
Again, be sure to contact your nearest stores for details and exclusions. No matter where you shop, it never hurts to ask about additional discounts and savings.
