9 Senior Discounts to Take Advantage Of

Aside from not having to work, did you know that there are significant benefits that come with being retired? Recently, an article came out of Money Magazine that had the ten best senior discounts in America, and we want to share them with you! These are some of the best deals available for anyone over 55.

1. Amtrak

Did you know that travelers 65 and over can get 10% off most rail fares on most Amtrak trains?

2. British Airways

4. Marriott

Travelers 62 and older can save 15% or more on their room rate.

5. National Parks (Our personal favorite)

US citizens or permanent residents aged 62 or older can access national parks for the REST OF THEIR LIVES for $80. Only $80! If you love the outdoors, this sounds like a great road trip waiting to happen. Do note that there are other fees, such as campsite fees, that will apply.

6. T-Mobile

Customers 55 and up can get two lines with unlimited talk, text, and data for $35 per line with autopay.

9. Alamo Drafthouse

If you're 60 and up, you can go to the early movies (before 2 p.m.) on weekdays for just $6!

It's said that while retirement is a great thing, many people have trouble finding hobbies or a purpose in that season of life. While we don't have a definitive answer for what YOUR hobby or purpose should be, you should take advantage of the opportunities life affords.

Visit some National Parks. Become an amateur movie critic. Find the best travel deal via Marriott and visit a destination worthy of your bucket list. Whatever you do, we hope we've helped give you an idea of what is out there. Have an amazing Wednesday, everyone!
