Not everyone likes getting older, 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 have stipulations beyond age — often, it’s 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.

1. Bealls

Every Tuesday is Bealls Day, when you generally can get an extra 15% 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% off your in-store purchase every Monday if you’re 50 or older.

3. Walgreens

If you’re at least 55 years old, you can take advantage of discounts at Walgreens stores and online. The discount generally runs the first Tuesday of every month.

4. Michael’s

If you’re 55 years of age or older, you can enjoy 10% off your entire in-store purchase at Michael’s — even sale items. This promotion is offered every day, although there might be some exclusions.

5. Pep Boys

If you’re 55 or older, you can enjoy a 10% discount at Pep Boys. The discount is available only in stores.

6. Kohl’s

Shoppers age 60 or older can take 15% off every Wednesday, in stores only.

Keep in mind that if you have other percent-off coupons, you won’t be able to combine them with your senior discount. However, you’ll be able to combine the senior discount with dollar-off discounts, Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You rewards.

7. Harris Teeter

If you’re 60 or older, enjoy 5% off every Thursday at these food and pharmacy stores.

Exclusions include fuel, pharmacy purchases, tickets and gift cards.

8. Rite Aid

On the first Wednesday of every month, Rite Aid shoppers 65 years of age or older get 20% off in-store and online purchases.

You’ll need to be enrolled in Rite Aid’s free wellness65+ program to qualify for the discount.

9. Ross

Every Tuesday, seniors 55 years of age or older can enjoy 10% off their purchase at Ross Dress for Less stores.

10. Goodwill

Ask your local Goodwill store if it offers a senior discount, as some do.

Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin, for example, offers a 10% discount to shoppers age 60 and older on Tuesdays.
