McDonalds senior discount and other senior discounts in 2019. Perhaps one of the easiest places to find a senior discount is at your favorite restaurants. Though most chains offer discounts across the board, many smaller locations will as well. Be sure to ask about special event savings days or early dinner discounts available. Restaurants typically will advertise these discounts.
National Parks: U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or over can access more than 84 million acres of land protected by the National Park Service for the rest of their lives for $80. While this isn’t quite the bargain that it used to be — prices were raised from just $10 last year — it’s still much better than the general, $80 annual pass rate, says Warren Gress, 67, of Parker, Colo., who has visited Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion, among others. Plus, Gress notes, the pass gets you discounted site fees if you’re staying in a federal campground. T Mobile: Customers ages 55-plus can get two lines with unlimited talk, text, and LTE data for $35/line with AutoPay. This is the best cell service discount available at the moment, says Dworsky of Consumer World. Bonus: only the primary account holder has to be 55 or older.
Founded in California in 1958, the International House of Pancakes is also known as IHOP, and there are now more than 1,750 locations in all 50 states and around the world. The special deal that the restaurant chain offers seniors is an entire “55+” menu section, featuring senior-sized portions and correspondingly reduced prices. Many locations also offer 10% off, with some even offering a half-off or 2-for-1 dinner special weekly. You can likely save at least $2 to $8 with these discounts each time you dine at IHOP.

Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), begun 47 years ago, has become America’s largest domestic airline, serving some 120 million customers with more than 4,000 flights per weekday in peak seasons to 100 U.S. destinations and beyond. It says that customers who are 65 or older may qualify for special senior fares, and that they should check with a Southwest customer service rep or with a travel agent to inquire about availability and pricing. The senior fares may not be the cheapest fare offered for a given flight, but senior fares are refundable, while the cheapest fares for most folks, the “Wanna Get Away” fares, are not refundable. Refundability can be an appealing feature for seniors who may have to reschedule or cancel due to health issues or other problems.
