SeniorDiscounts Card Program

SeniorDiscounts has offered our SeniorDiscounts Card program to our newsletter subscribers for the discounted rate of $19.95 since we first began. As of January 1, 2006, that rate will no longer be available, and will only be offered at its standard $24 rate.

There are a number of benefits for becoming a SeniorDiscounts Card member and now is the time to do so while the discount is still available.

Members are entitled to:
Our SeniorDiscounts Card - The SeniorDiscounts Card provides access to our member-only discounts. The Card can also be used as a form as identification to show other merchants you are entitled to their senior discounts
The SeniorDiscounts Guide Book - Members receive our 500+ page SeniorDiscounts Guide Book. The Guide Book references both our exclusive member-only discounts as well as our generally available discounts. Members will receive a new updated Guide Book every year.
Member Newsletters - Members also receive newsletters which will provide news and information about new discounts and programs that become available. Newsletters will also provide updated information on exclusive member-only discounts that can be printed and carried with the SeniorDiscounts Guide Book.

SeniorDiscounts Card now has over 3,400 discount locations associated with its member only discounts and we are adding new discounts every week. SeniorDiscounts regularly contacts new businesses, both local and national and invites them to join our program. We have recently mailed to over 1,000 restaurants across the nation and many new businesses are signing on. We are also working with many national retail stores, hotels, cruise lines and car rental agencies to provide more substantial discounts to our members.

SeniorDiscounts Card will also be adding low cost dental, vision, prescription, and chiropractic coverage for its members by the beginning of 2006. This coverage will include options for both insurance and discounted services.

We have provided some of the discounts available to our members in this week's Senior Treasure section.

By the Numbers

In driving tests, women reacted to emergency options in .56 of a second. Men scored .59 in the same tests.

Ninety percent of all known species that have become extinct have been birds.

The chances of an exact duplication of fingerprints are about 64 billion to 1.
