There are many special discounts that are available to seniors. Retirees are offered discounts at most retailers, restaurants, parks and on public transport. But you won’t get these discounts unless YOU ASK for them. Simply ask the question, “Do you offer a senior discount?” and see how much you can save.
And did you know there are special senior discounts that are available just online? Many seniors were shocked to find out that they could save as much as $6,000 by using these online discounts and little-known government programs. Here is a list of discounts and offers seniors can take advantage of in 2018.
1. Save on Groceries

2. Qualified Homeowners Can Save Up to $4,264/year On Their Mortgage
If you’re a homeowner and you want to save thousands of dollars each year, there’s a government program you may be able to take advantage of called HARP. The Home Affordable Refinance Plan (HARP) was passed to help qualified American homeowners reduce their monthly payments by up to $4,264 each year.
If you owe less than $625,000 on your home you may qualify for this brilliant government program. Over 3 million homeowners have already used HARP to reduce their monthly payments by as much as $4,264 each year, but there are still many homeowners that have yet to claim their savings. The program itself is totally free and doesn’t add any cost to homeowner’s refi’s.
Like most government benefits though, this program will expire, but there is still some time left for hundreds of thousands of qualified homeowners to save up to $4,264 each year on their mortgage.
Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible for this program, so you must check your eligibility. You can see if you qualify for free.
