SAVING MONEY • December 1, 2020

Born Before 1970? Here Are 7 Discounts Most Seniors Fail To Claim

By Robert Wilson | DiscountsLogic

Recent study shows that 78% of Canadians have never claimed these amazing discounts available to them. Most are missing out simply because they don’t know these discounts exist. That’s why we put together this list of the top discounts available to people over 50. To save your hard-earned money, make sure that you know what discounts you are entitled to:

1. Save on Groceries

  • Safeway: 10% off for Air Miles holders on the first Tuesday of the month and some stores offer senior discounts on the first Wednesday of the month
  • M&M Food Market: 5% off every Tuesday for 60+ and 10% if you spend over $30
  • Giant Tiger: 10% off for 60+ on first Monday of the month
  • Bulk Barn: 10% off for 65+ every Wednesday

2. Over 50? Save up to 70% at Thousands of Stores In Canada When You Join Senior Advantage™

You might be throwing your money away if you are over 50 years old and not a member of Senior Advantage™ which can save you up to 70% OFF from Canada’s top brands and stores.

Senior Advantage™ is a membership organization that provides huge discounts and deals on every day expenses to its members. This is the most comprehensive savings program available with current average member savings of more than $1,500 per year. 

Senior Advantage™ members get access to their discounts program which can help them save money at many popular stores like Walmart, Loblaws, Sobeys, Canadian Tire, Metro, Safeway, Amazon, Costco and many other stores. They practically have every store you can think of. I was pleasantly surprised that Senior Advantage saved me so much money at stores near my home, where I do most of my shopping. 

We’ve tried this discounts club ourselves and we love it. I and my wife have managed to save over $400 in our first month simply by being members of Senior Advantage. I see us saving at least $200-300 every month without doing any extra work. You can literally save thousands of dollars each year paying for stuff you would have to pay for anyway. We can't wait to see how much we will end up saving next month. We see ourselves as being members of Senior Advantage for a very long time.
