Senior Discounts In Canada

Discounts for Seniors!

Senior Discounts

If you’re a senior (or you know a senior) looking to save money, look no further. Thanks to the help of many on our Facebook page, I have put together a list of discounts available to seniors in Canada.

The following list includes the store, discount, and minimum age requirement. I will add more discounts to this list as I come across them. Feel free to submit them here, too!

  • A&W (age: 60+): 10% off food purchases, every day.
  • The Bay (age: 60+): 15% off your purchase, first Tuesday of every month.
  • Bulk Barn (age: students AND 60+): 10% off your purchase, every Wednesday. Discount cannot be combined with any other discount ($3 off $10 coupons).
  • Canadian Tire (age: 65+): 10% off regular priced items, first Wednesday of every month.
  • Golden Griddle (age: 55+):10% discount, excluding alcohol, every day.
  • Go Transit (age: 65+): 1/2 price of a single ride adult fare, every day.
  • Greyhound (age: 62+): 10% off your purchase, every day.
  • Hallmark (age: 55+): 10% off your purchase, one day per week (days vary by location).

  • Marriott (age: 62+): 15% off or more on your room rate, every day.
  • McDonalds (age: 60+):Large coffee for $0.85, every day.
  • Rexall PharmaPlus (age: 60+): 20% off your purchase of regular priced merchandise every Tuesday of the Month.
  • Rona (age: 65+): 10% off your purchase, any day.
  • Salvation Army (age: 60+): 10% off your purchase, every day. Discount cannot be combined with other offers.
  • Shoppers Drug Mart (age: 55+): 20% off your purchase of regular priced merchandise (excludes certain items), every Thursday.
  • Smitty’s: With a $2 annual fee, receive a $5 gift certificate and save 15% off any menu or retail item, every day.
  • Value Village (age : 55+): 10% off your purchase, every Tuesday.
  • Via Rail (age: 60+): Save on adult regular fare, every day.

Reaching a milestone birthday of 50+ is cause for celebration – think of all the discounts you’re able to receive now (often on top of coupons and other discounts)!

The best possible way to receive a senior discount is to simply ask for one. Most stores offer them, but may not actively promote this service. When it doubt, ask. You can’t get what you don’t ask for!
