As we enter our golden years, it's always nice to find ways to save money while still enjoying the activities we love. From dining out to shopping and traveling, there are plenty of opportunities for seniors to take advantage of discounts and special offers. So, let's explore some of the best senior discounts available in the Tucson area and beyond.


Retail Stores

Starting with shopping in the Tucson area, seniors can enjoy discounts at various stores and outlets. Walgreens has their senior discount day on the first Tuesday of the month.

Popular department stores like Macy's and Kohl's often offer special senior discount days where customers over a certain age can save an additional percentage on their purchase. Additionally, stores like Goodwill, Ross Dress for Less and TJ Maxx offer regular discounts for seniors, so it's always worth asking at the checkout counter.


Grocery Stores

When it comes to groceries, places like Fry's and Safeway offer discounts for seniors on certain days of the month – typically the first Wednesday of the month. This is a great way for seniors to save money on their weekly grocery bill and stock up on essentials. Many local businesses in Tucson also offer senior discounts, so keep an eye out for signs or ask at the register to see if you can save on your purchase.



For those looking to dine out in Tucson, there are plenty of restaurants that offer special senior discounts. From casual eateries to fine dining establishments, seniors can enjoy savings on their meals. Places like Denny's, IHOP, and Golden Corral are known for offering discounts to seniors, while local restaurants like El Charro and Casa Molina also have special offers for older diners. Seniors can also enjoy discounts at other chain restaurants like Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Outback Steakhouse. Many restaurants offer special senior menus with smaller portions and lower prices, making it easier for older diners to enjoy a meal out without breaking the bank.


Travel Discounts

Moving on to travel, seniors can enjoy discounts at hotels, airlines, and rental car companies when planning a trip. Many hotels in Tucson and across the country offer discounted rates for seniors, so be sure to ask when booking your stay. Popular chains like Marriott, Hilton, and IHG often have senior discount programs that can save you money on your accommodations. This can be a great way to save money on your accommodations and make the most of your trip.


When it comes to flights, several airlines offer reduced fares for seniors. Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, and American Airlines all have special fares for older travelers. It's always a good idea to check with the airline directly to see if there are any discounts available for your specific trip.


For those looking to rent a car, companies like Avis, Budget, and Hertz offer discounts for seniors. This can be a great way to save money on transportation during your trip and explore the Tucson area at your own pace.


Tucson Area Attractions

If you're planning to visit attractions and sightseeing spots in Tucson, many places offer discounted admission for seniors. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Pima Air & Space Museum, and Tucson Botanical Gardens are just a few places where seniors can enjoy savings on their visit.


Senior discounts are a great way for older adults to save money while still enjoying all that life has to offer. Whether you're shopping in Tucson or traveling to various destinations, there are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of special offers and discounted rates.
