Answers for General Questions and Information:
1. What is SeniorDiscounts.com?
SeniorDiscounts.com is the best place to find information about senior discounts on the internet. Founded in 2000, when founder Doug Brown began to wonder where (besides the movies) he could put his age to work for him, the site has grown to include more than 135,000 discounts across the country. We’ve found a lot of the discounts ourselves, but we also rely on our membership to point out new discounts as they discover them around their communities.
Our services have come to include articles and weekly newsletters about how to find discounts, and we have recently added a printed SeniorDiscounts Guide Book and a Senior Discounts Card to give our members more ways to save.
The Guide is a portable version of our database, which allows its owners to find discounts wherever they happen to be. As we’ve developed strong relationships with businesses that want to attract the senior market, we were able to work with them to create the SeniorDiscounts Card to offer large, members-only discounts to our members.
Though the look of our site and some of the things we offer have changed, our goal will always be the same: to help the mature community save money by finding and publicizing age-related discounts.

Answers for Registration Questions:
Many of the discounts and tips available on SeniorDiscounts are free with Basic Registration, but to receive the full benefits of our six years of knowledge, you will have to pay a small fee. These are the three types of membership:
There are literally hundreds of thousands of discounts available exclusively to the older market in the US. Unfortunately, most businesses do not advertise or post discounts, so it can be hard to track them down.
SeniorDiscounts has made it our business to do make discounts easy to find. Since July of 2000, we have been searching high and low to compile a list of discounts to help seniors save money, and we continue to add hundreds of news discounts every month. We’ve also learned a lot about how to find discounts, and we share our knowledge in weekly newsletters and articles. There is no one else who knows how to find discounts as well as we do.
We have found discounts at many business you would expect to have them (restaurants, hotels and travel agencies, movie theaters), but we have also found discounts at retail chains, auto shops, pet stores, and an array of local businesses. Registering with SeniorDiscounts allows access to our discount database and, depending on the membership level, also entitles our members to specially-negotiated discounts.
We have also expanded our service by publishing the SeniorDiscounts Guide Book, which includes all the information in our database and allows Members to take our expertise with them wherever they go.

5. How do I search for discounts?
Anyone can search for discounts on the SeniorDiscounts web site. Just click “Discount Search” on the toolbar at the top of this page. However, non-members and Basic Members can only retrieve the number and types of businesses that offer discounts within their area. Gold and Premium members can search by category and will be able to access all relevant discount information, as well as contact information, maps, and any specials discounts.
The search results will list member-only discounts as well as thousands of other senior discounts that are available to the general senior public in different age categories. Discounts available only to members will display the SeniorDiscounts logo next to the name of the business. To receive members-only discounts, a SeniorDiscounts Card must be presented at the time of purchase.
6. What is the SeniorDiscounts Card?
The SeniorDiscounts Card is a special discount program for our Premium Members. As part of a program owned and operated by SeniorDiscounts, the Card provides specially negotiated discounts on thousands of products and services available. These discounts are available only to Cardholders. Unlike similar existing programs, we have no political agenda and are focused only on creating and finding the best discount opportunities for seniors.
7. How do I qualify for a card?
While anyone can register for Basic Membership to find discounts for family and loved ones, Premium Membership is currently for people 50 years of age or older. International visitors are welcome to join as well.
The card can be used at any business that is listed as a member in the search engine on our web site or displays our logo at its place of business. Participating businesses will also be listed in the SeniorDiscounts Guide Book. Any new discounts will be announced in our newsletters so you will always know what discounts are available to you.
Pursuant to our dedicated effort to find the best discounts available, we are constantly adding information about generally available discounts while creating exclusive new discounts for Premium Members.
9. Do couples need separate cards?
While some discounts associated with the Premium membership and available with the SeniorDiscounts Card may benefit a couple (for example, hotel rooms or car rentals), the SeniorDiscounts Card is not transferable and may only be used by the cardholder.
10. What does the card look like?
11. How long will it take to receive the card?
Once the application form and payment are received, it should take approximately three weeks to receive your card.
