Sports Discounts

Now that spring has officially sprung, it's time to start looking outside for savings.

Attending a sporting event can be a great way to save while taking in the sun. Though tickets for some major sports - professional baseball, basketball, football, NASCAR, golf and hockey - are often in too much demand to be discounted, there are still deals to be found. Some franchises offer "Senior Day" promotions that offer savings of over 50%. You may also find good deals with no age restrictions for games during the middle of the week.

Sports like soccer, tennis, rodeo, swimming and track often offer senior discounts. The age requirements for these discounts will vary depending on the event. Usually they apply to those 60 years and over, but keep an eye out for discounts that begin at age 50 or 55. You can expect to save anywhere from 10% to 20%.

Don't forget about your local minor league, college and high school sports teams. Many of these teams play at very high levels. Better yet, they consistently offer discounts to their already-low admission prices while giving you the opportunity to root, root, root for the home team.

You should also keep your younger relatives in mind. Children can usually receive a discount of their own, and there is nothing like talking a little one to a game. Many different sporting events offer child rates and some ballparks even have grandparent days with discounts on admission and food for both you and your younger companion.

We have many sports discounts located on our web site in the Sports and Recreation category, but there are many more. Often the best way to find them is by calling the box office because the discounts often don't appear on web listings.

If you would rather spend this spring participating in sports instead of watching them, discounts are available at almost all local, regional and national parks, and many bowling alleys, gymnasiums and golf courses. There are even discounts on fishing permits. You can find information on many specific discounts in our database, but senior rates are usually on display at athletic facilities and parks.

When in doubt about a discount, you can always just ask, but make sure you tell us about it later.

For those of you who consider shopping a sport and would rather spend the spring finding cool duds to wear for the summer, there are plenty of discounts for you, too. Banana Republic offers 10% off every day for those 60 and over (participation and age requirement may vary). On Tuesdays, Ross Dress For Less gives a 10% discount to anyone over 55.

Now get yourself outside and redefine daylight savings!

  
SeniorDiscounts will be coming out with its 2007 SeniorDiscounts Guide Book in the coming months. But until that happens, get our 2005-2006 Guide Book for only $6.95, including shipping. This can make a great gift for friends and family.
