Amazon Prime

Senior citizens who qualify for Medicaid or who receive government benefits to an EBT card? If so, Amazon offers a discounted Amazon Prime rate. Your parents can pay as little as $6 a month for Amazon Prime, which gives them access to plenty of free music, movies, and TV shows as well as free shipping and Prime-only discounts.


Chili’s and Meal Discounts

Chili’s is one of several restaurants that offer a senior discount in most locations. Those who are 55 or older may qualify for a 10 percent discount off their bill. You have to ask for it though. It’s up to the location’s management to decide if they want to honor the discount.

Several other restaurants also offer senior discounts in some locations. Applebee’s, Denny’s, and Outback are others. Several fast-food establishments, such as Burger King, Jack in the Box, and Wendy’s also have senior discounts available.


Goodwill

Goodwill is already a good place for discounted clothes, books, shoes, and more. Seniors get a discount of up to 20 percent off one day a week. The day is determined by the store. Your mom and dad should check locally to see what day they should be shopping for bargains and get their senior discount, too.


Movie Theaters

Most movie theater chains provide discounted rates for seniors. AMC is one of them. Typically, older adults pay the same as children’s admission. It can be a substantial saving.

Another thing to watch for are senior days. Some theaters hold late-morning showings on a specific day of the week. For example, $5 Tuesdays are offered in several theaters across the nation. Seniors pay just $5 to see a movie. Concessions are also discounted to help you save even more.
