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.
  • Imperial Buffet (age: 65+): 25% off the buffet price, every day.
  • Lawtons Drug (age: 55+): 20% off select merchandise, every day.
  • M&M Meats (age:60+): 5% off your purchase, every Tuesday.
  • Mandarin Chinese Buffet (age: 65+): 20% off the buffet price, every day.
  • 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: 55+): 20% off your purchase of regular priced merchandise every Tuesday of the Month.
  • Rona (age: 65+): 10% off your regular priced purchase. First Tuesday of the month.
  • 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!

    Rona in Coquitlam, BC says seniors’ discount only on first Tuesday of each month

  2. lorna says:

    Hi i keep looking in my email to send in confirmation to receive stuff …it still hasnt come..and i looked in my junk mail too can you help me out?

  3. Terri says:

    I requested a large seniors coffee at McDonalds and was told they only have a seniors discount on their small coffee. Anyone else experience this?

  4. cathy says:

    BC Ferries charge seniors from outside the province full fair everyday – we’re from Ontario and felt that this wasn’t very fair.

  5. Rick Wilson says:


    Rexall’s age is 55 (see this weeks flyer – April 3/15).

    Shopper’s age is at the discretion of the franchise owner (I was told this by Shoppers help line.) Some stores use 55, some 60 and some 65. It’s very inconsistent and frustrating especially when I read that some stores in northern Ontario use 50!

  6. Russ Moore says:

    Have been to the Hallmark store in tge Quinte Mall in Belleville twice. Both times a discount was refused. 1st time I was told: “This store gives no discounts.” Second time, the clerk disclaimed any knowledge and suggested the senior’s discount may be for Hallmark USA not Canada. I wrote to Hallmark’s Head Office in Toronto, but have received no response.

  7. Volker says:

    I bought a sunshelter at the Rona store Fleetwood (Surrey B.C.) for $1019 + Tax. It was on a 1 week 15% off regular price $1199. Your discount list says Rona…10% off your purchase any day. My purchase price was $1019. Rona informed me that the 10% was only on the regular price of the item. Nothing about sale items. I’m not happy. Being a SENIOR, I’d like to save what money I can. (RONA) says they know nothing about these so called lists for seniors……Signed Disgruntalled

    • Erica Ashley says:

      thanks for letting us know. It is always best to check with the store before you purchase a product. Since we are not affiliated with any store things can change quite often based on what we have posted.

  8. volker says:

    I forgot to mention in my earlier rant that I did buy the sunshelter on Ronas Seniors Day (first Tuesday of the month). So I urge you to check with these stores that go on the list what policies are in place and add them with the store on the list, so others won’t get as irritated as I am.

  9. Greg says:

    There are not any RONA stores in the Belleville, Brockville, Kingston and Verona area that will give a senior discount. BEWARE. There appears to be very few RONA stores in Ontario that will give the discount.

  10. Ken Sala says:

    The senior’s discount of 20% offered at Shopper’s Drug Mart is only available to holders of their Optimum card! They used to offer a 15% discount to seniors who didn’t have an Optimum card but appear to dropped that practice. No card – no discount.
    Rexall’s 20% discount is offered to ALL seniors – age dependent only.

  11. Len says:

    but with free refills, it only matters if it’s takeout.

  12. MDash says:

    BC Ferries no longer has free senior fares. Seniors now must pay 1/2 price Mon to Thurs, except holidays.

  13. Cassie Howard says:

    Thanks for the heads up!
