How did it Happen?:
SeniorDiscounts began when the founder and Chairman, Doug Brown, realized that as he got older he qualified for discounts
on many products and services – but they were typically not advertised. He
attempted to locate a directory of businesses that listed senior discounts,
and the natural place to begin his search was the Internet. He found that no
such directory existed, online or off.
There was an obvious need to provide one source identifying businesses that
offer age-related discounts, what the discounts entail, and where to locate
the businesses. The fit between the Internet and the application was perfect
and Doug created SeniorDiscounts.com.
The SeniorDiscounts Mission is to find as many discounts for the mature
community (individuals 50 years and older) as possible, to ensure the discounts
are easy to locate and redeem, and to provide a resource for others to share
discounts they have found.
SeniorDiscounts.com started in April 2001 with 25,000 discount listings nationwide.
With help from our community of over 80,000 members, there are now over 250,000
(and growing) local and national discount listings across several categories
in our database. Users are able to locate discounts in specific geographic
locations and categories with a few easy keystrokes. The site provides users
with the business names, discount details and information, addresses, contact
information, and links to the businesses’ web sites, among
