There are all kinds, but my absolute favorite is the 62+ Senior Pass from the U.S. National Park Service - it covers federal campsites as well as all national parks. It costs 10 bucks, for life. It will give you free admittance to all parks, plus covering 3 other people if it's a single person fee, or an entire carload if it's a per car fee like the Grand Canyon. Camping is half price...so our 16 buck a night charge was only 8 per night...talk about a screaming deal!

If you have a Shoney's around and are inclined toward their salad, breakfast or lunch bar, they offer a senior discount, if you are over 50. Or at least they usta. You just hafta mention it at the check-out and possibly show ID. I imagine they still do, or they'd risk assault by revolting older folks with canes and umbrellas.

iHop has a whole section of senior prices. I get the senior sampler and you get pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage and hash browns! It's a good deal.

From cstn.org:

Fun Begins at 50

Start asking about senior discounts when you turn 50; more discounts start at ages 55, 60, and 62. By age 65, you qualify for almost every senior discount in the world.

Airlines: When seeking the best airfare, call the airline. Senior discounts are never mentioned on websites. Get the best senior discount rate, look up the best online price, then compare rates and features. Note, too, that domestic airfares have one set of senior discount rules; senior discounts may be even better overseas.

Finnair, for example, gives people aged 62 and up a 10% discount on flights from the US; senior discounts for flights within Finland are higher.

Buses: Greyhound bus discounts start as early as age 55.

Banks: Most North American banks have a special senior deal or club, usually starting at age 50 or 55. Most offer free and discounted services, frequently with free traveler's checks.

* Coast Capital Savings offers Canadian and US accounts and a long list of senior perks for people aged 50 or better.
* Bank of America senior clubs start at age 50. Free checking to persons 50 and over is offered by US Bankcorp, which has more than 4,600 ATMs nationwide.

Cars:If you're 55 or over, check out your local Saturn dealership. Senior discounts for parts and service start at age 55.

Hotels: Many hotel chains have exclusive deals with AARP and CARP; most offer discounts to non-member seniors as well, but age limits may be higher.

* Fairmont hotels take 25% off room rates for AARP members aged 50 and over; in Canada, the discount is only 20% (to CARP members), but breakfast is included.
* At Holiday Inns, discounts start as early as age 50 and range from 10 to 40%.
* Participating Intercontinental hotels (where room rates are in the $200 range) offer sheer luxury through their 55 for $55 deal.

Restaurants:

* Applebee's 1,400 restaurants, for example, offer a Golden Apple Card at age 55. Present it for deals and discounts.
* At Krispy Kreme the 10% discount kicks in at age 50.
* Waffle House, found in 1,300 locations, offers a senior menu with reduced portions at reduced prices.

p.s. from me - Denny's has the senior specials too....

The hotel discounts are something I hadn't really considered inquiring about. I was sort of waiting until I turn 55 in a couple more months, before really starting to ask about them. But, since I often stay away from home a few days each year, I'll have to start doing that.

sometimes your AARP card gets you a better discount at motels than even being a veteran or a AAA member. And at bookstores and other retailers! AARP may be a big insurance company, but it is so much more.
