1. What is SeniorDiscounts?
SeniorDiscounts is the largest directory of discounts for people over 50 years of age.
There is no other place that has such a wealth of discount information for the mature market.
SeniorDiscounts currently has over 50,000 members and receives over 60,000 unique visitors

SeniorDiscounts one of the top places to find discounts and deals.
2. Is my business suitable?
Almost any business can provide a senior discount and list it with us.
Discounts can come in the form of a percentage off your service or product -- 10% off,
for example -- or a set dollar amount deducted from a given purchase – like $10 off purchases
of over $50. Businesses can also offer two for one specials, a free gift with purchase,
discounts that are applicable during certain times of the day, or even free shipping.
Businesses that list their discounts with SeniorDiscounts will be listed on our web site
and in the SeniorDiscounts Guide Book. Business who purchase a Premium Listing will also have
the opportunity to post their discounts in our newsletter, which reaches over 50,000 people weekly.
We would be happy to answer any questions for you or help you come up with some discount
ideas. Just contact us.
3. How much does it cost?
Business registration with the SeniorDiscounts is free. To list your business, all you
need to do is create a senior discount to register with our web site. To list your business,
Whether or not you choose to list your business with us, offering a senior discount
is a great way to attract new customers because it doesn’t cost anything up front and it
demonstrates your business’ dedication to serving the senior community. It’s a form of
promotion that you only have to pay for (via discounted products or services) after it has
brought in new business.
Premium Listings - SeniorDiscounts also provides the ability for your business to
stand out from the other 140,000+ businesses on our web site with a Premium Listing. For
$29.95 per year, businesses can add a logo to their listing, have their listing placed at
the top of search results, provide special discounts and announcements in the Hot Deals section
of your listing, and promote your business to the 40,000 subscribers of our weekly newsletter.
Most businesses can recover the price of an enhanced membership with just one or two
new sales. Compared to the cost of attracting new customers through other means, many businesses
have found this option to be a helpful supplement to more traditional forms of advertisement.
Businesses can opt for premium status when registering on our web site. Click here to register.
