Not everyone likes getting old, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take advantage of it.
Many retailers across the nation offer a wide variety of “senior” discounts to people as young as 50. Some entail stipulations beyond age, such as an AARP membership. But not all places have that requirement.
The following stores offer senior discounts that don’t require an AARP membership. At most, you may have to show identification to prove your age or join a store’s free loyalty program to qualify for the discount.

Every Tuesday is Bealls Day, when you generally can get an extra 15 percent off your in-store purchase if you’re 50 years of age or older.
Bealls Day discounts can fluctuate, but the retailer’s website shows a month’s worth of Tuesday deals ahead of time.
2. Bealls Outlet
You can enjoy 15 percent off your in-store purchase every Monday if you’re 50 or older.
If you’re at least 55 years old, you can take advantage of 20 percent off regularly priced eligible items at Walgreens stores and online. The discount generally runs the first Tuesday of every month.
If you’re 55 years of age or older, you can enjoy 10 percent off your entire in-store purchase at Michael’s — even sale items. Not just once a week — this promotion is offered every day.
There might be some exclusions.
5. Pep Boys
If you’re 55 or older, you can enjoy a 10 percent discount at Pep Boys.
The discount is available only in stores.

If you’re 60 or older, enjoy 5 percent off every Thursday at these food and pharmacy stores.
Exclusions include fuel, pharmacy purchases and gift cards.

On the first Wednesday of every month, Rite Aid shoppers 65 years of age or older get 20 percent off in-store and online purchases.
You’ll need to be enrolled in Rite Aid’s free wellness65+ program to qualify for the discount.
Every Tuesday, seniors 55 years of age or older can enjoy 10 percent off their purchase at Ross Dress for Less stores.
